Camp in traditional canvas tents with nothing surrounding you but the stellar night sky over Botswana’s wildest destinations. Afrika Ecco Safaris takes its adventurous guests deep into some of the most exceptional areas of the country, demonstrating the diversity of landscapes and watching animals at their most primal. The leading aspect of this experience is the changing of locations: from the waterways of the Okavango Delta, to Moremi’s game-rich lagoons, Central Kalahari’s undulating grass plains, Makgadikgadi’s endless stars, and Savute’s predator paradise.

Travelling through impeccable wildlife areas and arriving at numerous pristine campsites tie together some  of  the  most  unbeatable safari experiences out there. Daily activities include 4x4 game drives, canoeing in traditional mokoros, walking safaris, motorised boating excursions, and tours of a local  village. Three meals per day are prepared by the chef, while dinners in themselves are a 3-course extravaganza. Wake up to basins of warm water, hot coffee and rusks, and return to a tidied tent and a camera full of safari memories.

    Activities

    The beauty of Afrika Ecco Mobile Safaris is that there is no sole location, and the whole trip is an adventure, discovering the less visited corners of the wetland paradise. Afrika Ecco is based amid the nourishing waterways of the south-eastern Okavango Delta. The vast fan-shaped pan of floodplains, grassland and river channels branches out from the Okavango River itself, spreading its wealth across the northwestern corner of Botswana. Situated just south of the famous Chief’s Island, Afrika Ecco sets up camp in canvas safari tents and explores the surrounding area on foot and by boat or mokoro. Once guests arrive at Xaxaba airstrip, they disembark and take a boat ride to their campsite. There are no game vehicles and the area is explored on foot or by boat.
