If you’ve ever written off Botswana as an unaffordable dream, think again. It isn’t all designer-chic safari lodges where you pay up to £400 a night for the luxury of air-conditioned tents the size of tithe barns. You can still enjoy the safari of a lifetime for half the price – and get closer to the real Africa.
How? Mobile camping safaris are the answer. There are several tour operators offering mobile camping where you will watch seeing wild Africa the way it should be done, sleeping under canvas with a mobile camping outfit who really know the ropes.
