Expeditionary safari in Botswana’s Okavango
Expect to pay FROM £2,280 PP
Botswana is known for its exceptionally luxurious safari camps and lodges, but the experience of an authentic mobile safari under canvas is still hard to beat. No amount of rose petals or personal butlers will make up for the smells and sounds you'll experience with a few nights under canvas in the African wild. With a group of friends or your family this is one experience that's hard to beat.
In Botswana we use either light or luxury mobile camps to provide an unforgettable safari experience.
In either case the essence is the same - the focus is on intelligent simplicity; great wildlife viewing, experienced guides and access to some of Botswana's best wildlife areas from private camp sites in the middle of nowehere.
Expect great food and simple but comfortable accommodation. Take a look at the bottom of the page to see the difference between the two types of safari.
We've never gone a bundle on the concept of exclusivity - simply charging an arm and a leg to exclude those who can't afford it doesn't seem very inspiring. But we do realize that (like marmite) the best experiences are probably not for everyone. One size fits all usually means that one size doesn't fit anyone properly. So these mobile camps won't be everyone's cup of tea.
But if the idea of totally private camps, gradually moving to explore a wild unspoilt area in the company of an experienced guide appeals, then think about using one of these camps for at least part of your safari in Botswana.
With a simple tented camp; private and lightweight enough to move every few days, your safari becomes your own private expedition, quietly exploring with your guide, avoiding the heavily visited areas, planning the days activities to fit with the natural rhythms of the day.
Many people choose to spend five to seven days travelling between say Moremi, Savuti and the Chobe River during the dry season, then combining with a day or two in a small lodge to ring the changes.
