Botswana Mobile Safari

botswana has a price tag to it. by choosing the mobile safari you will travel at less than half price of the lodges, yet with a continuous personal guide and enough service to make it best possible value for money. travel in a similar way the great explorers and pioneers of days gone by must have travelled.

I personally absolutely love to experience true wilderness areas by mobile safari. the safaris we do in botswana are all-inclusive (meals, drinks, activities) and fully catered - there is enough staff to take care of all camp duties. you as the client can just sit back and relax. now even though this will always remain a mobile safari I do call it camping with a difference : best possible guiding with great food, hot shower and mobile toilets. please do away with the conventional understanding of “camping” - being very rustic and basic , sleeping on the floor in your own sleeping bag - these days are long gone. a mobile safari with us remains the classic character of camping but thrown in with enough pleasantries and luxury/service to make it a memorable experience. only a handful of people do not come back for more...

many of our safaris do run scheduled but anything private and tailor-made is possible.
