We are a specialist mobile safari company offering fully guided, tailor made, personal safaris for small or private groups, to Namibia, Botswana and Zambia, as well as other southern Africa countries. We are privately owned and operated by directors with a hands-on philosophy. Safaris can be either based on lodges and tented camps, all camping oriented, or a mixture of both.

We offer both a semi-luxury and semi-participation fully guided mobile safari option, designed to suit clients individual wish to take as active or non-active a role as they wish, also priced to meet individual clients budgets. All lodge safari options will include a mix of 3-5* hotels and lodges, boutique style bush lodges with rondavels, chalets and safari tents all with en-suite facilities, as well as self catered (we do the cooking) lodges and camps.

As well as offering a number of favorite, fixed route safaris, we particularly specialize in creating safaris designed specifically for individual clients. This is where we excel, as we have been offering such custom designed safaris for many years now.

In addition to having become well known as a mobile safari operator we now have the pleasure of offering a range of “All Lodge”, “Bush Camp” and “Walking” safaris, as well as running our own high quality mobile safaris. These have been selected from the portfolios of other top class operators, choosing only the very best to make up interesting and often unique safari itineraries in some of the finest game viewing areas of southern Africa.

Concentrating on Zambia, these safaris include the top national parks of South Luangwa/Nsefu sector, Lower Zambezi, Liuwa Plains, Kasanka as well as other game areas such as the Bengweulu Swamps and or a combination of the above.

The camps (more like boutique lodges) are all in strategic, beautiful and often remote locations. Accommodation is in a mix of safari tents, reeded huts, chalets and other similar all with en-suite bathroom facilities, full “lodge’ amenities, each with cooks, guides and other crew to look after you.

Your choice can be from 4-5 night to 10 night safaris, single location or 2-3 camp safaris, bush camping or walking safaris. Transfer between camps will either be light aircraft or by road often as a game drive in itself.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

"It is terrific to be on a trip with a person who so delights in every detail, planning and running our trip as if it were for his own best friends and while he worked very hard to make everything go smoothly he also seemed to enjoy himself. I don't know how he manages to make each trip feel so fresh and each client feel so valued. That is one of the things that makes him so unusual as a "tour operator" - We were so lucky to have found M17383. It is great to be in the hands of someone who so joyfully goes that extra mile and we recommend M17383 enthusiastically". Laurette and Leroy – Botswana and Zambia July

 1  Roberta Wilder Botswana Classic Mobile Safari 2012-11-15
The overall safari was excellent. The guide was pleasant and personable and had abundant knowledge of Botswana's bird and wildlife. Our game viewing was ... view more superb and the route chosen through Botswana was ideal.

Our cook was the king of four wheel drive cooking and able to create culinary marvels over an open fire.

 2  Donna Archer customised Lodge safari to Botswana and Victoria Falls 2012-11-15
The trip was fabulous, well planned and well executed.

The hospitality and accommodations at the lodges were great, only surpassed by the wildlife. ... view more

I can’t say there were no surprises (i.e. elephants holding us captive in our tent at Seba camp while they ate Marula fruit; hippo in the front yard at our Toka Lea tent; or having a baby hyena chewing the brake line under our vehicle rendering us without brakes, etc.) They were all fun, of course, providing special photo opportunities.

Thanks to such great driver/guide, my husband and I really had unique sightings every day – all day. We spent hours enjoying the numerous up close leopard, lion and elephant encounters.

All of the transfer / plane connections went as planned.

Too many memories to list them all.

 3  Marina and Massimo Botswana and ZAmbia Fully Guided Mobile Safari 2012-11-15
We had a marvellous time in Southern Africa.

We spent 1 week in botswana + 1 week in zambia, sleeping in a tent litterally in the middle of the game! ... view more
During the night elephant scratching and crashing trees, hippos eating grass, buffalos walking, just beside beside us!

And in the day so much game + beautiful landscapes, even more beautiful than we had expacted (rivers are a surprise!)

Our guide was an excellet guide, trust him and for sure you'll see the most beautiful places to experience Africa

A very exciting holiday, unique. We're thinking about going back for new trips.

 4  Sue and Peter Upton Customised mobile safari to Botswana and Namibia 2012-11-15
I would highly recommend a trip with this operator.

The itinerary was far better planned than we could possibly have managed ourselves, even if we had ... view more done thousands of hours of research and internet searching.

We loved the trip, the company, and for us especially, the flexibility to change plans at a moment’s notice when our circumstances changed. Nothing was too much trouble. . Every detail was wonderfully organized. We will be back!

 5  Ivan Murphy Three Countries Safari 2012-11-14
Just leaving Joburg now, everything about this trip was fantastic, accommodation, transportation, location and all activities really surpassed my expectations. ... view more I've been to over 40 different countries and I count this as the best trip ever.
Much appreciation for all the arrangements you made.
