Thanks, Zoe. And also Geert who responded by e-mail with similar suggestions.
My itinerary has some complexities though:
- I will travel by myself and will not / cannot drive a 4x4 car. From what I have read, at the end there's quite a bit of difficult driving involved.
- The most logical way to approach it is from the north, when you come driving down from the Caprivi strip. Then you actually pass it. However, I will start from Maun (as my other arrangements start from there as well, going eastwards hopping around lodges and mobile camping in Moremi, Khwai and Chobe). So it must be a 1 or 2 day trip from Maun.
I know there is a luxury fishing lodge that also 'does' Tsodilo where you can fly in: https://www.nxamaseri.com/okavango-delta-botswana-nxamaseri-island-lodge/
And there is a tantalizing half-day trip by helicopter, which sounds worth a splurge but is very expensive: https://www.helicopterhorizons.com/experiences/
