The Leopard Safari

A 17 Day Mobile Camping Adventure

The Leopard Safari

The Leopard Safari provides incomparable value and affordability. This 17 day safari adventure offers a comprehensive traveling experience throughout Botswana, introducing you to one of the oldest cultures in the world, the San Bushman.

After spending four nights in the Kalahari Desert, you will travel to the magical Okavango Delta, explore Moremi Game Reserve, and visit Chobe National Park. While in the Okavango Delta you will explore the Delta's expansive floodplains by traditional mokoro or dugout canoe for 2 days.  At Moremi a fascinating adventure awaits you in this reserve,  Moremi supports an astonishing amount and variety of wildlife including over 400 species of birds.  In Chobe National Park you will find wilderness that provides a major sanctuary for northern Botswana's wildlife and supports vast herds of game, including the largest elephant herds in Africa.

The Leopard 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.
