About Botswana Mobile Safaris

Strike out on a private expedition to explore a wild unspoiled tranche of game-rich country – this is one of the most authentic and inspiring ways to see Africa. 

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 camps in the middle of nowhere.

Highlights of a mobile safari Botswana

Often the best safaris involve looking beyond the obvious highlights. It’s about the exhilarating encounters that will make your heart sing. These are encounters that nobody could ever predict, but that make your safari genuinely unique.

BEST TIME FOR MOBILE SAFARISIN BOTSWANA

Botswana has a hot, wet summer between October and April, and a cooler, dry winter from May to the end of September.

Winter is traditionally high season in terms of price and visitor numbers, while summer is the quieter off-peak (or “green”) season. It’s not quite as simple as this, but as a guideline, visit the Okavango between May and November and the Kalahari between January and March if your primary objective is to see wildlife.

A Private Expedition

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 day’s activities to fit with the natural rhythms of the day.

Marmite not Moët & Chandon

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.
