Roger Dugmore Safaris

Roger Dugmore Safaris is a small, owner-run mobile safari company, with over 30 years of experience operating in Botswana. They believe in offering private and personalised mobile safaris that are exclusive and authentic. Each safari is tailormade taking into consideration the places of interest, time of travel and wildlife movements to ensure the best possible guest experience.

Embark on a journey reminiscent of the classic, old-fashioned expeditions through the African wilderness with an authentic mobile adventure with Roger Dugmore safaris. Echoing the spirit of adventures from over a century ago in eastern Africa, Roger Dugmore brings forth a similar essence and personalised attention for modern-day explorers in the 21st century.

Expect a touch of luxury amidst the untamed beauty of the wild. The camp boasts a full staff including skilled chefs, attentive waiters, diligent tent keepers, and experienced drivers. Meals are crafted to the highest standards, accommodating your dietary preferences and ensuring culinary satisfaction.

Most importantly, embarking on a tented safari promises exceptional mobility amidst these wild expanses. As the camp relocates, you awaken to a delightful breakfast while witnessing the camp’s seamless disassembly. Following a leisurely game drive with a picnic lunch, you arrive at the new site to find the camp magically reassembled, your shower steaming hot, a crackling campfire, and supper in preparation.

Tented safaris also entail selecting camp locations based on seasonal game movements and local conditions. Each camp accommodates a maximum of twelve guests, ensuring an intimate and personalized safari experience. Accommodations feature spacious walk-in tents equipped with linen and all essential amenities for a comfortable bush stay. Each tent boasts a traditional bucket shower and long-drop toilet for your convenience.

Roger Dugmore is originally from Kenya and moved to Botswana in the early 70’s. He worked with the legendary Jack Bousfield at the present day Jack’s Camp, after which he founded Kalahari Kavango Safari Company and was co-owner of Meno A Kwena Tented Camp. Roger has since 1989 focused on mobile safaris in Botswana.
