Botswana Adventure Camping Safaris

Botswana is known as an expensive safari destination but there are options for adventurous travelers seeking an exciting safari without the high cost of a lodge or luxury camping safari. 

This collection of safaris offers a range of affordable, high-value Botswana experiences.  If you have an adventurous spirit, these safaris will get you close to untouched nature in some of the greatest wildest areas left in Africa.

The following safaris are considered "participation mobile camping safaris" 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).  Each of these trips runs with one vehicle and a trailer to haul all the supplies.  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.

All the safaris listed here are mobile camping safaris.  You'll camp in unfenced, private campsites in the remote Botswana wilderness.   These safaris encompass itineraries throughout Botswana and range in length from the 8 day Buffalo Safari to the 17 day Leopard Safari.  Each safari has guaranteed departure dates.
