Golden Africa offer private mobile safaris throughout Moremi, Khwai, Savuti, Chobe, CKGR, Nxai and Makgadikgadi.
Golden Africa are a small company offering a personal service, very comfortable tented accommodation and great guiding. For groups of 4 guests or more they offer good value for money, though for 2 guests on a private basis it is naturally expensive.
We highly recommend private mobile safaris for two main reasons. Firstly, they offer a little bit of adventure and a wonderful close to nature wilderness experience. Many of the best ‘bush stories’ originate from camping out in the bush and there is something simplistic about spending time in a small, low impact camp in the heart of the wilderness. Whether it is using torches to keep an eye on skulking hyaena in the darkness, having dinner interrupted by hippo coming out of a lagoon to graze, or falling asleep to the sound of roaring of lions, sleeping out in the bush is a magical experience provided you do not feel the need for more substantial accommodation arrangements.
Secondly, you are able to enjoy a private camp experience with expert guiding. Private mobile safaris are invariably led by passionate and knowledgeable guides, and you have them all to yourselves. You can also to a large degree set your own schedule, giving you the flexibility to have early or late starts, and to stay out game viewing for as long as you need. You are not bound by the constraints of a well organised lodge safari and this will appeal greatly to some travellers.
