Golden Africa Safaris


Private Mobile Safaris

Hosted by husband-and-wife team, Rob Barber and Charlotte Bennett-Diver, Golden Africa Safaris offers a luxury five-star mobile safari camp experience all around Botswana – from the world-renowned Okavango Delta, the elephant-dense Chobe National Park, to the immense and remote Central Kalahari, and the predator-filled Savuti Marshes.

Meru canvas style tents, spread out evenly to provide ample privacy, are beautifully furnished with large twin or super king steel frame double beds, 400 thread count cotton percale linen and ensuite bathrooms. Each tent interior has been locally designed with an eave of canvas to form a shaded veranda with camp chairs and table perfect to take in the amazing views with an early morning tea or coffee.

The communal lounge and dining areas at Golden Africa Safaris’ camps are set up in a mess tent, just a short stroll from the guest accommodation. The mess features comfortable seating to form a lounge and a large table to create a communal dining area. The camp’s fire-pit is another great venue for socialising, with guests and guides sharing stories of their safari day.

Community & Culture

Golden Africa Safaris has developed a deep and longstanding relationship with the Khoi San indigenous people from the XaiXai region of western Botswana. As a result, the elders of the tribe have granted Golden Africa and guests a unique access to their community so they can experience, understand and even engage in their culture and lifestyle.


Golden Africa Safaris is deeply dedicated to the preservation of the wildlife and ecosystem of Botswana and Africa. At present, they are home to 13 rescue animals and have fostered many more. Golden Africa also supports the Maun Animal Welfare Society (MAWS) and serve as a member of the MAWS Committee.
