A high-quality luxury mobile safari that focussed purely on the Okavango Delta – the land of many rivers.

Starting off with three nights in the famous Moremi Game Reserve the heart and soul of the Okavango, you will be exploring the different habitats and searching for the many animals that call this protected area home. Then set off by boat into the many small channels of the Okavango to a secluded island for two nights of fly-camping and exploration. A boat ride back and and extended game drive then sees you leave the Moremi and enter the Khwai Community Concession, an area with some of the best game viewing in the country, for another three-night mobile safari!

This 8-night Okavango 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, in the off season. The accommodation is simple but comfortable and you will find all the luxuries one needs to be comfortable in this pristine wilderness. The campsites are private and in prime locations so one can expect to get the full Okavango 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.

A smaller and down scaled version of mobile camping as you embark on an adventure by boat onto a small and private island located in the remote permanent water ways of the delta. The tents will be much smaller and more basic but still comfortable. From this paradise, you will explore the area by boat or on short bushwalks exploring the islands smaller details. This is a true Okavango adventure and is something definitely worth experiencing for 2 nights before returning back to the comforts of the luxury mobile safari.

The Khwai concession is located on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta with the Khwai river forming the boundary between the Moremi Game Reserve and the concession. The area is home to some of the best game viewing as the herbivores from the drier surrounds are forced to come to the Khwai river in order to drink. This in turn supports large concentrations of predators especially leopards and if you are lucky, also Painted wolves.

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:
