Mobile Camping Safari in Botswana (7 days)
A mobile safari is one of the best ways to experience Botswana. The camps are set up in exclusive wilderness sites that are far from the crowds and they allow you to explore the wildlife areas with the same group of people and the same guide throughout your journey ensuring continuity, familiarity and a personal camaraderie. Enjoy three nights in the Moremi Game Reserve and three nights in the Khwai Community Area on this popular 7-day mobile safari.
Needing little introduction, your stay at Moremi Game Reserve will delight with its abundance of wildlife and excellent photographic opportunities and a birding wonderland.
The Khwai area of the Okavango lies along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. The Khwai area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve with the added advantage of being a private concession which means the ability to do walking safaris and night drives.
Letaka Tented Camp will be your mobile home for this itinerary. Enjoy the fabulous wilderness with experienced guides.
Costing tip: When comparing with other companies, remember most of them only show the low season rate. How pricing works >
