andBeyond Botswana Explorer


Secluded mobile camping in the Botswanan wild


This mobile-tented safari takes you through the wilderness hotspots of Botswana. Experience everything from the waterways of the Okavango Delta to the wildlife-dense Chobe National Park and the contrasting landscapes of Savute. The trip ends with an opportunity to admire the magnificent Victoria Falls.

The AndBeyond Expeditions Botswana Explorer is a great way to get up close with the bush, wildlife and people and experience the truly wild side of Africa. Of course, you'll still have the luxurious touches that you can expect with any tour that we, Rhino Africa Safaris, recommend. Enjoy the serenity of private campsites and the comfort of spacious fully-serviced wilderness camping. A maximum of 6 guests per safari ensures that you are guaranteed a window seat with top views. The safari tents have comfy linen-adorned beds and ensuite bathrooms, with a flush w.c and refreshing bucket shower, to wash off the African heat and dirt as you go.

Go on exciting game drives in the Delta, in Moremi Wildlife Reserve, Chobe National Park and Savute, see the majestic African Lion and the staggering herds of elephants in the Chobe - even spot them crossing the river from time to time on a pivate boat cruise on the Chobe River. And take in the beauty if the world-renowned Victoria Falls.
