Botswana’s Great North Road

Great North Road Botswana, Botswana Highlights

The Great North Road

Our Great North Road safari is a mobile camping safari from Maun to Kasane.

The Okavango Delta is a unique ecosystem, a river delta located in the middle of the world’s largest stretch of continuous sand – the Kalahari basin. An oasis in an otherwise arid and inhospitable landscape, the Okavango Delta supports an incredible diversity of animal and birdlife. The Moremi Game Reserve is part of the Okavango Delta and consists of seasonally flooded areas as well as drier regions such as the Khwai Community Area.

The Savuti Marsh is one of the most exciting wildlife destinations in Africa – anything can, and often does, happen there. Situated in the far north of Botswana, Savuti borders the Okavango Delta to the west and Chobe National Park to the east and is one of Africa’s best known big game areas.

Chobe encompasses a wide variety of habitats that are home to a breath-taking variety of animals and birds and is famous for the herds of elephants which come down to the river to drink every day. Chobe National Park is one of Africa’s finest game sanctuaries.

What is Serviced Mobile Camping?

A serviced safari is a mobile safari of between 1 and 7 guests departing on pre-determined dates. You have your own safari vehicle and professional guide and a backup team of driver, cook and camp assistant who drive in a separate vehicle. While on safari your camp staff erect and dismantle the camp and prepare delicious meals cooked on an open fire, and the camp assistant takes care of all camp duties. A serviced safari has walk in ensuite Meru-style tents complete with comfortable beds including all bed linen and a towel, and en-suite bathrooms with a traditional hot water safari bucket shower and bush loo. 

Book this safari as part of a small group of maximum 7 guests or book the entire departure as a private safari for families, honeymooners or special interests etc.

On alternate dates this safari operates in reverse, from Kasane to Maun.

Optional add-ons: Enjoy a couple of days at spectacular Victoria Falls before or after your safari, or a few days in Cape Town.
