The Great North Road

An 11-day Botswana Mobile Camping Adventure

The Great North Road safari offers you the opportunity to experience the extraordinary landscapes of northern Botswana. You’ll explore lush lagoons, dense woodlands, open grasslands, and wide rivers all filled with wildlife. The Great North Road is a 11-day safari starting in Maun and ending in Kasane.

This fully serviced mobile camping safari entails an 11-day tour through Botswana’s famous wildlife areas: Moremi Game Reserve, the Khwai River area, and Chobe National Park. Each has distinct habitats ranging from semi-arid dry-lands, teak and mopane forests, seemingly endless wetlands, and the Chobe River. Days are spent game-driving across vast areas, in search of the tremendous variety of animals Botswana is well known for: from African wild dogs to huge herds of elephant, the elusive leopard, prides of lion and wide variety of antelope. A total of 10 nights are spent inside game reserves where your well-appointed camp is set up at private campsites.

What is a mobile camping safari? It’s just that - mobile; a cross country exploration of the African bush. We carry all supplies with us and spend a few days at each site before moving on to the next destination. The flexibility of a mobile safari allows you to spend more time out in the bush and focus on the wildlife. Located in the remote bush, campsites are private, wild, and unfenced. It's not unusual to have wildlife wander through camp. You'll have a camp team to attend to all the camp chores, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy the wilds of Botswana.

Camping in Africa allows you to experience the magic of the bush in a very personal way. Our mobile camping safaris are designed to immerse you deep into the African wilderness. You'll fall asleep to the distant roar of lions under the African stars. Our comfortable mobile camping safaris are the quintessential African experience (and our favorite safari style). At GrassTrack Safaris we believe a mobile tented safari is the best way to experience Africa’s last unspoiled wilderness!

We have scheduled departure dates throughout the year and you’ll join up with other travelers (contact us if you prefer a customized, private safari). This safari is also available heading southbound: from Kasane to Maun.

We also offer a shorter, 9 day version of this itinerary. Contact us for rates, departure dates, and availability.
