Botswana: The Luxury of a Mobile Safari


Mobile_expeditionsThe mobile safari is becoming more and more popular and we are not surprised. A mobile safari can offer any standard of tent for any budget with the main emphasis being on the fact you have a private guide, and will stay at private campsites set up just for you. This is of course impossible on any kind of safari other than a mobile, and it also means that you can plan your route and really get into pristine wilderness areas which are not populated by other people and which have abundant wildlife. In Botswana a rustic mobile safari is the best way of seeing this expensive safari destination. The Botswana mobile safaris are some of the best value safari options in Africa, which goes slightly against the grain, since Botswana is actually Africa’s most expensive luxury safari hot spot.

Your loo is a long drop outside the tent and your shower a bucket shower. You will go into unexplored areas with an expert private guide and private vehicle and will enjoy exclusive game viewing. This then goes up a level into stand up meru tents which have en suite loos and bucket showers at the back of the tent, and comfy camp beds. Your wash basin is placed outside the tent and early mornings spent admiring the view whilst washing your face with warm water are enchanting. Of course there is always another level – and the luxury mobile safaris are certainly that.
