Tour Details

This is a mobile camping safari to Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and Nxai Pan in Botswana. A private tour just with your group.

The casual visitor to Botswana could be excused for seeing the country as kilometre upon kilometre of flat, desolate scrubland with little or no surface water. But on closer inspection, coupled with local knowledge, a whole new world will manifest itself, and what is arguably Africa’s finest wildlife destination is revealed. Botswana is a country the size of France, with over a quarter of its land is set aside exclusively for nature conservation.

No sound, No people, No traffic!!! Just us. Although we set up tents, we encourage clients to enjoy a night out under the canopy of stars.
