What is a mobile camping safari?

Of all the safari destinations, Botswana has perfected the art of mobile camping.

A mobile camping safari creates the modern-day experience of the expeditions of Africa’s early explorers. It is the modern-day version of ‘traditional’ safari – like the gentleman explorers Baker, Stanley and Baines. Instead, we have replaced the ox-wagons and bearers with custom-made 4×4 safari vehicles and professional guides.

Improvements in modern camp equipment, lighting, refrigeration, and hot water allow a quality lifestyle under canvas in the wilds of Africa, whilst maintaining that ‘pioneering’ feel.

Being mobile means the safari camp can move from one private wilderness location to another, enabling the safari to go across various ecosystems and frequently between other national parks and wildlife reserves.

Mobile safaris range from participatory mobile camping safaris, where guests assist in everyday camp chores, to fully-serviced mobile camping safaris, where camp staff attend to all your needs.

Tents range from cosy dome tents to spacious mini-meru tents with en-suite shower, toilet, comfortable beds, and linen. And your safari chef prepares delicious meals, and camp waiters look after your every need.

Mobile camping safaris can be private or depart on set dates. Private departures are great for families and small groups. We have a range of mobile camping safaris for solo travellers and couples with specific departure dates.

The best way to enjoy Africa’s wildness is to camp in the bush in secluded areas designated for your exclusive use, unwinding over a campfire under a dense canopy of stars and listening to the sounds of the night.
