Safari: Okavango Delta

Mobile Camping Safari in Botswana (7 days)

One week of wild camping in Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve, arguably one of the most beautiful areas in the Okavango Delta

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.

Khawi Community Area

  • Following an early morning breakfast, you'll take a slow drive through Moremi Game Reserve north-east towards the Khwai Community Area. The day’s journey follows the Khwai River, with the track weaving from the riverside and floodplains into the mopane veld and the woodlands that make Khwai one of the most scenic areas of the Okavango. Enjoy a packed picnic lunch en-route.

Spend the following two nights camping at an exclusive site in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night.
