Mobile safari expeditions offer the excitement of sleeping at non-permanent tented camps in pristine wilderness locations across Botswana or Namibia. This safari travel style has become incredibly popular over the last years amongst travellers who are budget conscious yet want to live first-hand an adventurous safari experience in the African bush.
Unlike fixed permanent camps or lodges, these camps are set up in a different location every couple of days (mobile camping safaris). While your guide and camp crew remain the same throughout the trip, the site of the camp changes, allowing you to experience different wildlife sightings and scenery. As you journey on a 4×4 open vehicle through remote national parks and sometimes private concessions, the crew will be moving the camp to a new location.
Additionally, it is possible to set a tented camp in one specific location in the middle of the wilderness (camping safaris) for some days only. The best example to illustrate this type of safari is the mokoro trails in the Okavango Delta. This type of safari is shorter, and the equipment used is more rudimentary; smaller tents and a shared shower and bush toilet.
