BOTSWANA FULL SERVICE TENTED MOBILE SAFARI

A genuine mobile safari for those looking for a more adventurous safari experience in Botswana. This outstanding full-service mobile safari gives you an opportunity to gain an insight into areas and wildlife not necessarily available on a typical fly-in safari. The standard of guiding is exceptional, and some departures are operated as 'photographic safaris' conducted by a specialist guide. Maximum group size is 7 and accommodation is in comfortable tents with a decent (customised) camp bed and bedding, with an en-suite 'bush bathroom’. There is no participation required in camp chores as this is very much a full service safari - you will still sit down to a proper (and tasty) meal with a glass of wine (or two!) each evening. Without wishing to be melodramatic, and based on feedback from previous participants, it may well also change your life!

YOUR TRAVEL ITINERARY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Amazing game viewing & exceptional birdlife, including the Okavango Delta.
  • An opportunity to explore the wilderness on foot.
  • A good old-fashioned, genuine tented mobile safari - some would say, the way it should be.
  • The adventure of a lifetime!

YOUR TRAVEL ITINERARY PACKAGE

On arrival into Maun you will be met for your 30 minute charter flight to the Moremi Game Reserve where you will be met by your guide. Your first three nights are spent in the Xakanaxa region, exploring the surrounding wilderness on morning and afternoon game drives. Moremi lies on the eastern extremity of the Okavango Delta. Habitats here range from wide-open floodplains, marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, vast stands of Miscanthus and Phragmites, woodland and savannah. As a result of the extremely variable habitat the diversity of both wildlife and birdlife is excellent.

Moremi is amongst the best game reserves in Africa for viewing the endangered African wild dog. Xakanaxa is home to a resident herd of several hundred buffalo whose range covers the territories of at least 4 prides of lion which may often be seen flanking the ever moving herd. Breeding herds of elephant move between their browsing areas in the mopane forests and the fresh water of the Okavango. Red lechwe are one of the more unusual antelope species and commonly found here, while the rare sitatunga antelope may be spotted from motor boat along the water-ways.

TRAVEL TIPS FOR BOTSWANA FAQ'S & INFORMATION FOR BOTSWANA

LET US GUIDE YOU...

Traditionalists would maintain that this is the proper way to do a safari in Africa, and we find it hard to disagree. We fully understand that this style of trip is not for everyone, and don't just book it because it's cheaper than a lodge / fly-in safari in Botswana. But if you are of a mind to do this kind of trip then we are of the firm belief that this is one of the very best safaris that we offer. The guides are top quality, and the experience is truly extraordinary. And of course Botswana is one of the best safari destination in Africa, so what's not to like?!

An Alternative Itinerary - Take the shorter 6-night mobile tented safari in Botswana, then spend 2 nights in the Chobe or Eastern Caprivi region, before continuing to Victoria Falls for 2 or 3 nights.
