WT's Unique Mobile Safari Adventure

The WT Difference in Botswana

  • Explore Africa the way few travelers ever do with private mobile camps and boutique lodges that get you close to the wildlife and away from the crowds.
  • Expert naturalist guides lead your entire safari (no handing you off from lodge to lodge); and in camp a staff-to-guest ratio of 2:1. The camaraderie and fun on these trips is legendary!
  • Epic game viewing and great variety: 4WD vehicle, bush walks, private riverboat, canoe, and scenic charter flights.
  • Custom-built 4WD safari vehicles with guaranteed window seats and roof hatches with 360-degree views.
  • Experience Botswana’s phenomenal landscapes: the Okavango Delta, a World Heritage Site, exquisite Moremi Game Reserve, and Chobe National Park, with its massive herds of elephant.
  • We offer a safari for every season, from our classic 11-day journey that includes Victoria Falls to our 14-day in-depth adventures in the Okavango Delta or the Kalahari Desert.

Overview

On this signature WT adventure—one of the last true mobile safaris in southern Africa—we enjoy a staggering abundance of wildlife encounters as we track game by 4WD vehicle, riverboat, and, a Botswana specialty, by mokoro (dugout canoe) in some of southern Africa’s most alluring landscapes. From the vast savannas and woodlands of Chobe National Park, home to the world’s largest herds of elephants, to the ornithologist’s paradise of Moremi Game Reserve, the exquisiste islands of the Okavango Delta, and the amazing spectacle of Victoria Falls, our safari is the right way to get the full experience Botswana’s wonders. And it’s all topped by our special pairing of delightful lodges with our own fully catered mobile tented camps. No one else gets you this close to the action—and in such comfort!

Itinerary at a Glance

Days 1-3
Maun / Moremi Game Reserve / Private Camp

From Maun, head to Moremi, an exquisite mosaic of mopane scrub and wetlands set on the northeastern section of the Okavango Delta. Explore by 4WD vehicle in search of tsessebe and Burchell’s zebra, and track predators including wild dog and cheetah before returning to our special camp, set near secret pools and open grasslands with no one else around—except perhaps vervet monkeys in the trees. Our mobile safari camping is ruggedly comfortable (you’ll even have your own tent steward), and grants you the amazing experience of seeing and hearing wildlife right from camp. It’s not uncommon for grazing elephant or hippo to pass through, and it’s exhilarating to see lion and leopard prints outside your tent in the morning.

Days 4-5
Okavango Delta

During your time in the Okavango Selta, enjoy special excursions by mokoro and have the chance to stretch your legs on a guided walking safari. Unforgettable moments here include seeing parading troops of baboon, spotting an array of birdlife including Pel’s fishing owl, discovering unique animals including the semi-aquatic lechwe and sitatunga antelope, and enjoying a sundowner at day's end.

Days 6-11
Chobe National Park / Private Camp / Victoria Falls

A private charter flight whisks you to Chobe National Park, a legendary refuge full of wildlife, from elegant gemsbok to sleeping crocodile. We’ll watch hundreds of elephant make their way to the river’s edge to drink, swim, play, and give themselves a mud bath—and they may even swim near our boat during our river cruise! Our safari ends at stunning Victoria Falls, where the mile-wide Zambezi River drops 300 feet in a thundering cascade. Depart on Day 11.
