What is a Mobile Safari?

Mobile safaris are the growing trend for African adventure. No longer confined to those outdoorsy folk whose feet are permanently clad in Gor-tex, the mobile safari has zipped open its doors for all comers.

A mobile safari refers to a trip where you stay on night in a temporary campsite, packing up your things to explore onwards the next day, and camp somewhere new the next night. It is the original version of ‘safari’, which comes from a Swahili word meaning ‘journey’, and the campsites are usually wild, wherever your team chooses to lay its collective head. DO NOT BE FOOLED that you must rough it on a mobile safari: far from it!

Take a mobile safari with Uncharted Africa in Botswana: real beds in large en-suite tents, flush loos, down Uncharted mobile tentspillows, pure cotton sheets, persian rugs, bonehandled silver cutlery, damask table linen – you get the picture! And there’ll be no packing up of your own belongings, thank you very much. Your ‘campsite’ will be beautifully arranged for you when you arrive and you will never see it dismantled.

And food will be far away from the camping mainstay of a can of beans: three course meals under the stars with Uncharted Africa include such treats as fresh tomato and basil soup, ostrich piccata, roast Botswana beef, delectable orange tarts and impossibly rich, but light, chocolate puddings. Teas are indulgent affairs with treats like triple layer, banana caramel cake, tangy lemon curd biscuits and the best brownies in the bush! All bread is baked daily, and delicious full cooked English breakfasts are on offer every morning.

At Abambo we are big fans of the mobile safari for getting up close and personal to the wilderness that you’ve travelled so far to experience.
