Traditionally all safaris were under canvas and accordingly, all our safaris are primarily tented.
In Africa this is the preferred mode of accommodation, a camping safari should be luxurious.
Our tents are spacious, and include beds with duvets, pillows and towels. Battery powered lights at the bedside
provide illumination and our staff are always ready to top up the bucket showers with hot water,
primitive but wonderfully enjoyable after a full day tracking game. Wholesome three-course meals are served
at table in the dining tent, and all wine and soft drinks are part of the deal.
Camps are pre erected by a service team who go on ahead, enabling clients to spend their days looking for game, not worrying about camp chores. Transport is by custom built Toyota Land Cruisers seating a maximum of 6 clients.
Each vehicle is equipped with large roof hatches for photography, a fridge to keep the drinks cold and a
reference library. Every safari is accompanied by a Professional guide licensed by Botswanas Department
of Wildlife and National Parks. In the Okavango, transport is by traditional dug outs (mokoro) or motorboat.
Safari is a Kiswahili word that literally translates as journey. But safari was born when the first European adventurers
of the 19th Century began to explore the Dark Continent. The journey started when those swahili porters first
picked up their loads on the African mainland opposite Zanzibar. Today, however, adventurers who follow in the
footsteps of Speke, Livingstone and Stanley, often fail to find that quintessential Africa because it is hidden behind
a brick wall and the hum of air-conditioning. By providing a personalized service in the classic safari style,
we endeavor to get Africa under your skin, so that when you leave, you will take a little bit with you,
or leave a little of yourself here, so that you will probably come back again
A FINAL WORD
The discomfort of a safari in Botswana is part of the attraction. Most of the roads we use are sandy tracks, and at times
it can be hot and dusty! The rewards are harder to describe. To watch the sun set over the Okavango, to spot the
elusive leopard, or witness a herd of elephants come to the river at dusk, to sit around a campfire listening to the
African night, these are the rewards; memories that will serve you well in the great, crowded cities of the world.
If you must see a wish list of animals, then retire with the crowd to a glass and concrete hotel in the bush,
these safaris are not for you. But if you want to leave the world behind and enjoy some traditional African hospitality,
we would like to have you along.
