On arrival in Maun, Botswana, you will be met by your guide, who will assist you in loading your bike and luggage. Travel by road to a mobile safari camp, just south of the Moremi Game Reserve wildlife area.

Once you have settled in and readied your gear for your adventure, the rest of the afternoon and evening is at leisure to get to know your guides and to enjoy a dinner around the fire.

Mobile Safari Camps

Mobile safari camps are comfortable set-ups, offering all the creature comforts of a lodge and the added advantages of moving as you explore. They are more exclusive than the general camps as they are generally limited to a small amount of rooms. And a team of staff taking care of you. Each evening, you arrive at a new setting to a flawlessly recreated camp… and ice-cold sunset drinks.

Little Sable

This intimate and private little camp offers 8 traditional style tents, on raised wooden platforms, each with a private viewing deck, en-suite bathroom and outside shower. Little Sable offers understated simplicity and style. In camp you will feel a sense of freedom, where the wide open views offer you the opportunity to connect and immerse yourself with your surroundings on so many levels.
