Our Trips using this Lodging
Botswana—Okavango Explorer—Mobile Safari Camping
Wilderness Travel’s private mobile safari camps in Botswana offer relaxing solitude and an authentic bush atmosphere while still providing a great deal of comfort. We sleep in walk-in canvas tents (approximately 10 by 14 feet) furnished with beds, duvets, and pillows. Attached to the rear of each tent is an en suite bathroom with a warm-water shower, sink, and toilet, and at the front is a small veranda with two wooden chairs, a small table, and a washbasin. Battery-powered lights provide illumination. Our camp is fully catered, with three-course meals, including wine and soft drinks, prepared daily by our camp chefs. Laundry service is included. When we move camps every two to three days, our camp crew breaks down the camp after we depart, and while we are out enjoying the fantastic wildlife, they move ahead in a large 4WD truck to set up our new camp before our arrival. It doesn’t get any better!
On one night of the safari (Day 5), we use a special lightweight camp that allows us access to a very remote area. This lightweight camp has smaller dome tents in which it is (just) possible to stand, with bedrolls, thick foam sleeping pad, duvet, sheets, pillows, and a shared toilet tent.
