The Buffalo Safari

A 7 Day Botswana Camping Safari

The Buffalo Safari

This adventure safari is perfect for those with limited time who still want to visit the great wilderness areas of Botswana.  Starting in Maun, Botswana and ending at Victoria Falls, this affordable safari is long on adventure yet ideal for those traveling on a budget.  The Buffalo Safari passes through the Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, two areas that offer some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa.  Located in the remote bush, most campsites are private, wild, and unfenced.  It's not unusual to have wildlife wander through camp.  The Buffalo Safari is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the daily rhythms and magic of the African wilderness.

The Buffalo Safari is a "participation mobile camping safari" because guests "participate" by setting up their own tent, carrying their luggage from the vehicle to the tent, and sleeping on a mattress pad (not a bed or cot).  The safari runs with one vehicle and a trailer to haul all the supplies as you move from camp to camp.  Many guests will also pitch in with the cooking, though this is not required.  Each safari is accompanied by a professional guide and a camp assistant who will ensure your safari is safe, educational, and fun.
