With the expeditions of Africa’s early explorers in mind, a mobile safari recreates these incredible journeys of discovery. Like Stanley and Livingstone’s historical explorations, a mobile safari sets off as a self-contained adventure led by a professional guide and supported by assistant staff and qualified chef. Being mobile simply means that the safari camp is able to relocate from one exclusive wilderness site to another, allowing the safari to move through a variety of habitats and often between different national parks and game reserves.
Mobile safaris range from participation mobile safaris where clients lend a hand in daily camp duties to luxury mobile safaris where devoted camp staff attend to your every need. Accommodation varies from comfortable dome tents to furnished luxury tents complete with ensuite. Mobile safaris are organised as set date events and cater for between 6-12 participants per departure. They operate for a specific period of time and each departure is open to any individual, couple, or small group that wishes to join.
While on a mobile safari, elements of disturbance are minimal: there are no cell phones, alarm clocks, swimming pools or newspapers. Disturbance to the natural environment is also kept to a minimum as all reputable mobile safari companies have adopted environmentally friendly and sustainable operating procedures. A mobile safari is a complete wilderness experience, providing the perfect opportunity to explore Africa on foot—truly one of the great delights of a genuine African adventure. To camp ‘wild’ in remote locations set aside for your exclusive use, relaxing around a campfire under a thick blanket of stars and listening to the animal concerts, is to experience the true essence of Africa’s wilderness.
