Imagine herds of elephants emerging from mopane forests coming to drink at the Khwai River at dusk in front of the sinking sun. Listen with awe to the powerful roar of a lion at night or hippos splashing in the lagoon next to your camp. Witness the dramatic action of African wild dogs chasing an impala or watch a giant giraffe stretching her neck to reach leaves high up in a tree. There is not one day on a Botswana Safari that will leave you disappointed. Every day will bring a surprise. Even tracking a lion or leopard can be as exciting as reading an intriguing crime novel.
Join Wild Focus Expeditions on a mobile-tented safari. A mobile safari in the wild is certainly the most “real” bush experience available in Africa. We have modeled our mobile tented camps to meet your every need. Mobile safaris are designed so that we are able to move from one private camp to another allowing us fantastic flexibility to be “where the game is” during varying seasons of the year.
Our trip starts in the dusty frontier town of Maun where we will spend our first night before driving to our exclusive camp along the Khwai River. It is here in the lush Okavango Delta where elephants, lions, crocodiles and hopefully even African wild dogs await. After three nights along the Khwai River, our staff will break camp while we take a charter flight to an island in the northeastern part of the Okavango Delta. We will spend two nights inside the delta at a beautiful lodge. From there we will experience the traditional way of exploring the Okavango - by mokoro, a dugout canoe. For longer journeys into this beautiful water labyrinth we will use motor boats. Most animals are used to boat traffic and often allow us to get within a short distance, close enough for photography but still far enough to avoid disturbing the animal. With some luck we will be able to get close to the precious and tiny Malachite kingfisher, the jewel of the Okavango. We also might find a heronry on one of the small tree islands with a lot of bird action like courting behaviour or incoming birds with nesting material in their bills.
Our next destination, Savuti, will be reached by a private charter flight. Savuti is situated in the southern part of Chobi National Park. Only one word can describe this place: magical! Many years ago it became famous because of a large pride of lions, the Savuti pride. Meanwhile the pride has split into smaller units. However until today lion action is one of the main attractions in Savuti. There are a number of waterholes where elephant breeding herds and bulls come to drink everyday. The settings of these waterholes are excellent for moody sunset photographs. Leopards are also frequently seen on one of the rocky outcrops - in a nutshell: Savuti is Botswana at its best!
As nature photographers, we have spent years in the bush tracking, spotting and anticipating wildlife behavior. Here in Botswana we can show off our skills to provide you with a truly memorable and life-changing African experience. Whether you come to photograph, to observe through binoculars, or just to absorb and enjoy, we promise to have you in the right place at the right time.
