Combine the Okavango Delta with outstanding wildlife experiences throughout northern Botswana. These safaris allow guests to immerse themselves in the wilds of Botswana with specialist guides and specially adapted equipment.
Before the permanent camps of the delta, at the genesis of this country’s safari industry came the mobile safari. Many of the lodge operators, both Wilderness Safaris and &Beyond, have their beginnings in this sector and have benefited from the focus on hospitality and guiding that mobile safaris require.
Today a number, of mostly independent, mobile operators have joined Wilderness Safaris and &Beyond and offer first class safaris to the Okavango Delta and more broadly northern Botswana and Namibia. Moving every couple of days these safaris make use of exclusive campsites within the National Parks and Game Reserves, not available to the general pubic, and outside in Botswana’s vast private concession areas.
Guest participation and comfort levels vary from operator to operator, but these can be an extremely cost-effective way of exploring the Okavango Delta. Guests benefit from the continuity a dedicated specialist guide brings, and many departures focus on particular interests such as birding.
