An Amazing Safari Adventure

Excellent safari experience. Our six nights, seven days Botswana trip was an unforgettable adventure. Me and my mother went all the way from Kasane to Maun with Tony Mobile Safari. One night in Kasane for a river boat safari, one night in Chobe, two nights in Savuti and two nights in Moremi. We finished off with a peaceful mokoro tour in Maun with hippos grunting right next to the canoe.

Everything was planned out perfectly with a team of one guide and two guys who managed the mobile camp. We were amazed from how quickly the staff prepared both our meals and our big luxury tent before we arrived to the campsites. The camp were set up in great locations, the last one near Khwai river (in the Okavango Delta) where elephants visited daily.

Tony, our guide drove us in an open safari vehicle (land cruiser). To be able to drive in Chobe national park with all it’s sand, mud, water crossings and small connecting roads the driver must have a huge experience about the area, which our guide had since he grew up in the area.

Game viewing was very good. The number of different animals on the safari was incredible and the differences between Chobe, Savuti and Moremi made the trip complete. Some of the highlights was spotting wild dogs (twice!!), close up elephant encounters, a male lion having his kudu baby dinner and of course many wonderful sunsets. The birdlife in Chobe national park is remarkable too.

Tony is a well experienced guide and knows everything there is to know about nature; from the name of the tiniest little bird to the big carnivores and their behavior. He’s also involved in conserving wildlife and if you are interested he will tell you bush stories and about the issues the game reserves and the animals are facing today and in the future.

Tony is an easy going guy, always joking or singing, and that made even the long transportation days in the car fun.

Over all, we had a fantastic time and everything ran very smoothly, I would definitely recommend Tony Mobile Safari.

Amazing safari

Went with Tony and his team for six fantastic days. We saw a lot of mammals and birds, thanks to Tony. With a lot of knowledge of both animals and nature he could show us more than I ever had expected to see on my first safari. I can recommend Tony with all my heart.
The team was great, except all animal experiences we had a lot of good food always ready after the game drives, comfortable beds in our tent and a lot of care-taking from Ben and Eddie.
