Our Mobile, Boating and Mokoro Adventure Safaris run on a “no unnecessary frills” basis. We understand that most people want an authentic, slightly rugged African experience.
One that is affordable and not loaded with additions for the sake of a bigger price tag. We however do not cut any corners on the equipment, staffing or planning of your holiday.
We run most of our trips on 4 standardised levels of comfort, but are also happy to tailor safaris to suit your desires.

Based out of Maun our mobile units operate in the Okavango Delta, Central Kalahari, Nxai Pan, Makgadikgadi Pans, Moremi, Chobe and other places of interest in northern and central Botswana.

We pride ourselves in the standard of our professional guides, all of whom, along with our camp staff are without exception “Batswana”. This enables you to get a very real insight into lives of people growing up in the bush and in rural Botswana.

Our multi-day safaris can accommodate groups of between one and fourteen clients.

Your itineraries are flexible and can be adapted to suit the pace at which you wish to spend your days.
On days that you journey between campsites you will go on an early morning and late afternoon game drive where possible.
On a full day between two nights in the same campsite you have the options of going out for a full day drive with a packed picnic lunch or going on an early morning and late afternoon game drive with midday relaxation in camp.

We are also affiliated with operators in nearby Kasane, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
If you would like to include the spectacular Victoria falls, Zambezi or Chobe river in your itinerary this can be arranged.
