This itinerary has been designed by us to give you the ultimate Delta and Desert experience, showing off the amazing contrasting landscapes and wildlife Botswana has on offer. If you want to experience sleeping with nothing more than a canvas wall separating you from the pristine wilderness of Botswana and some of Africa’s best game-viewing, then this is a great option.

All our mobile tents are nothing short of very spacious and comfortable with their own individual eco toilet facility. The mobile option is also the best way to really immerse yourself into the wildest areas.
