What Makes WT’s Botswana Safari Special?

Our Private Mobile Camps—Under Canvas and Closer to the Wildlife

The secret to the perfect experience in Botswana is going on a mobile safari, far from the lodges and close to the wildlife. Our mobile camp is exclusive, set up just for our group in spectacular locations. This is a true journey: your expert Trip Leader travels with you throughout the safari—you aren’t handed off from guide to guide. And in each new camp location, you’ll find the same wonderful crew you’ve gotten to know. The cultural connection and fun you’ll have with these great folks is one of the highlights of the experience.

  • Spacious tents are equipped with comfortable beds (no cots!), and en suite private bathrooms with a washbasin and hot showers.
  • A private guide, chef, camp manager, tent steward, and camp team stay with you throughout your mobile safari. Our staff-to-guest ratio is 1:1 for the highest quality of service.
  • Thrilling game viewing: our mobile camps have you out in the heart of the parks and close to the wildlife—no long drives back and forth on dusty lodge roads.

Varied, Active, and Exciting: WT’s Botswana Safaris

We’ve put our 30 years of experience into creating the best experience of Botswana’s unique landscapes:

  • 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 1:1. 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.
The Best Team in Botswana

An Amazing Camp Staff

One of the key differences between our mobile safari and a lodge-based alternative is the incredible crew that travels with you from start to finish. They welcome you like family after each day’s adventures, take great care of you with delicious meals, and are fantastic company, sharing laughs and stories around the campfire at day’s end.

The entire trip was first class. The service from the trip team was outstanding. I felt like I was at a five star hotel rather than out in the African Bush.
