A mobile safari is your chance to follow in the footsteps of the original explorers in Africa. Sometimes termed "overland safari" they are lead by professional guides who accompany a small convoy of camp staff for a self-contained journey throughout the Wilderness.
At the top end of the scale the mobile tents have proper beds, en suite bathrooms with hot showers, your own chef and even a mobile bar. The simple options using private camp sites still offer relative comfort with a shared shower and toilet and comfortable mattresses, there is even a separate mess and bar tent or dine out under the stars depending on the season. Whatever grade of safari you choose, one thing is certain, camping no longer means having to rough it. In fact, even a budget, participation safari offers a level of comfort that most people would not associate with camping in the wild. There is something magical about the atmosphere created by the soft, warm glow of a paraffin lantern, showering under the starry night sky, and the flicker and warmth of a campfire.
In most cases the safaris take advantage of exclusive locations located in private concessions or national parks. Mobile safaris are designed for small groups of between 6 and 12 guests or tailor made private groups. This ensures that you enjoy exclusivity and personal attention. In contrast to the constant comings and goings of the lodges, a mobile safari offers the traveler a welcome sense of continuity, and an opportunity to get to know your guide and fellow traveling companions, enhancing your experience.
The thrill of a mobile safari is not only in the destination, but the journey itself. A mobile safari is the ultimate safari experience in one of Africa's last true wildernesses.
