Private mobile safaris - your own personal safari in Botswana

24-botswana-1-1.jpg

Botswana private tented mobile luxury safari holidays (or luxury camping safaris), with just your family or group of friends and your guide staying in the best national parks and private concessions, is the ultimate and most genuine way to go on safari.

One of our favourite ways of going on safari is to have a private tented camp erected just for your party. The mobile camps can be as luxurious as you wish, complete with candelabra, exquisite cuisine, comfortable mattresses and Persian rugs, in the way that safaris were conducted during the time of Ernest Hemingway.

For those on a walking or canoeing safari, the camps have to be lightweight, generally staying in pup tents en route, so that the camps can be easily transported.

And then of course, there are those camps which are in between. 

Whichever level of luxury you choose, you can be assured of several things: The very best safari experience with incredibly knowledgeable guides, continuity throughout your safari moving between the best wildlife spots and using private campsites, complete freedom to spend your days as you choose and finally, exclusivity - which means the sightings are just yours - and you can spend as long with each one as you choose. Develop a wonderful rapport with your guide and spend time talking to people whose company you value. Spending time in the wilderness is enriching to the soul.

Alternately, ff you would like to join a set departure mobile safari travelling with others, there are several opportunities to do so and these can be a lot of fun travelling with a small number of like minded people. Your staff set up camp for you with walk-in tents, proper beds, duvets and shower under the stars. Drift off to sleep after a delicious three course meal being serenaded by roaring lions, giggling hyenas and chirping crickets.


Start your days wakening to the dawn with coffee around the campfire and set off to find any nocturnal animals still awake, perhaps come across a leopard or lions after a night's prowl and after a couple of hours game viewing, stop for refreshments before returning to the camp for a huge brunch. Siesta time follows or even move camp to another reserve. After an afternoon's drive/walk return to camp discuss the days sightings around a ‘bush TV’ - the campfire - with a glass of chilled wine before dinner.

You will get intoxicated on pure bliss!
