8 day trip

Delta and Desert Mobile Safari

From 5900

Overview

Immerse yourself in nature

An intimate and authentic Botswana safari for the intrepid. Join seasoned guide Andrew Harkness for a completely private weeklong expedition across Botswana’s diverse landscapes, from the dry Central Kalahari to the lunar Makgadikgadi salt pans and lush Okavango Delta.

Staying in an ultra-low impact but thoroughly comfortable camp that moves with you, this is safari as it used to be – canvas tents, open fires, bucket showers and a well-stocked drinks cabinet.

With Andrew and his team guiding you for the whole experience, look forward to a much more personal experience and flexible safari schedule as you encounter Botswana’s rich wildlife on game drives, walks and mokoro canoe excursions. An ideal trip for families and groups of friends after a real African adventure.

Days 4 — 5

Overnight by the Boteti River

Drive out of the CKGR to Meno a Kwena, a quirky little camp perched on a rocky clifftop above the Boteti River. Spend a leisurely afternoon here, perhaps watching from the pool as elephants and zebra gather below to drink.

Days 5 — 8

Mobile safari in the Okavango Delta

Drive north into the Khwai area of the Okavango where you’ll be reunited with your camp and the team. During your days here, explore this corner of the Delta on game drives on the search for lion, leopard and wild dog as well as many elephants. Guided game walks are a more mindful, and occasionally thrilling way to experience the wild.
