          Buongiorno! Soggiorneremo presso Madikwe river lodge il prossimo marzo....Considerato che lo raggiungeremo in auto da Johannesburg (dove atterreremo alle 15.00 quindi troppo tardi per arrivare in serata) pensavamo di fare una notte di transito. Qualcuno ha suggerimenti su dove fare tappa?......
