This safari is all about variety. It showcases three dramatically different areas which boast some of the best wildlife sightings the country has to offer. Trips between camps are also done by charter airplane which gives great scenic views and perspective of the vastness of Botswanas wilderness areas!

Starting off with a charter flight into the Moremi Game reserve, the game viewing starts as you disembark the plane. 3 nights of mobile camping and exploring the different happitats before flying far north to the Linyanti Swamp where you will be based for 2 nights in a luxury and intimate bush camp overlooking the vast swamp. From there you another short flight sees you in the well-known Savuti region of the Chobe National Park for another three nights Mobile Safari before flying back to Maun.

This 8-night Okavango, Linyanti & Savuti Safari is well suited for medium to large sized groups seeking to experience Botswana as adventurous, yet luxurious, as possible in their own private camp. The accommodation is simple but comfortable and you will find all the luxuries one needs to be comfortable in this pristine wilderness. The campsites and lodge are private and in prime locations so one can expect to get the full Okavango, Linyanti and Savuti experience.

detailed itinerary

The Moremi Game Reserve is located on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and consists of a patchwork of lagoons, shallow flooded pans, plains and forests. The area and diversity of habitat supports a high variety and density of wildlife both big and small and makes for excellent game viewing, particularly of predators.

Mobile safaris follow an old tried and tested formula that ‘takes everything along, but leaves nothing behind’. The safari crew uses a truck to ‘transport the camp’ and they will setup camp before you arrive. Accommodation is in the form of a private canvas setup, specifically for the safari and then moved to the next location by the mobile crew.

Guests can decide the level of luxury of the camp, but all will be in private tents (with proper beds) with on-suite bathroom, including a bucket shower (with hot water!) and basic toilet. The safaris are fully guided by the best local guides and guests travel in open game viewing vehicles between locations. The food is prepared by an experienced bush chef who prepares delicious meals on the open fire.

Linyanti Bush camp is located on the banks of the Linyanti Swamp on the northern tip of Botswana and the border to Namibia. The area is famous for its large concertation of buffalo and elephant in the dry season as the swamp becomes the only water source in a very large area. Game viewing along the swamp edge is particularly productive and scenic.

The camp is small and intimate with only a hand full of luxury canvas tents and a central dining area. The tents are spacious with a large bathroom en-suite containing a flush toilet and shower with a view! The food is excellent and dinner meals are paired with premium wines. The staff are incredible hosts and create a very warm and friendly environment in which to feel as if you are at home in this magical corner of Botswana.

The activities available at Linyanti: morning, afternoon & night game drives, walking safaris, mokoro & boating (subject to water level) and a 30 minute scenic helicopter flight per stay (between April & November).

The Savuti region of the Chobe National Park is located between the Okavango Delta and the town of Kasane in the North East of Botswana. The area is normally fairly dry and arid as the Savuti channel flows rarely and seemingly unpredictably from the Linyanti swamp to the Savuti marsh. The area consists of small rocky outcrops, fairly dense Kalahari woodlands and also vast open grasslands in the marsh – which all attracts and holds strong concentrations of wildlife. The area was made famous for the number of documentaries filmed there, which focus mostly on the predators and their behaviours having to adapt to the random changes in water abundance. The most recent being “Savage Kingdom”.

Mobile safaris follow an old tried and tested formula that ‘takes everything along, but leaves nothing behind’.

accommodation

Golden Africa Safaris run high level luxury mobile safaris in northern Botswana. They fall into the mobile safari category; however, they are better described as a “mobile lodge” as one can find all the luxuries and amenities of a classic tented lodge but they have the added bonus of being able to change location! The best of both worlds in our opinion!

They offer both 4 and 5 star safaris as below:
