  14. We have decided that a fly-in safari in Botswana should not just be for the luxury market and we are now offering 'mobile-style' camps in Botswana's most popular National Parks so that more people can enjoy the experience without the long overland transfers. We have called our new operation 'Botswana Tented Camps'. Each Camp will be open for booking from April to November and there is a maximum of 6 people in camp at any one time which means everyone gets a 'window' seat on our vehicles. We can provide charging for cameras and phones on our vehicles, even when they do not have the engine on. All our camps consist of 3m x 3m Dome Tents with ensuite bush toilet and bucket shower. Included is all meals, drinks (including alcoholic), activities and National Park Fees. These can also be used for self-drive safaris. We have three locations: Moremi Tented Camp. Located in the Moremi Game Reserve at exclusive campsites here you can explore the Third Bridge, Xakanaxa, South Gate and Black Pools areas with our superb guide, Tumelo Charles. Known simply as 'Charles' Tumelo comes from the village of Sankuyo which borders the Moremi Game Reserve and has been guiding in the Okavango for more than 10 years. He has excellent knowledge of the area he works in and is great fun to be around on safari. Khwai River Tented Camp. Located in the Khwai Private concession here you can go 'off-road' and get a little closer to the wildlife. This fantastic area is well known for its abundance of Predators, particularly Leopard which are frequently seen. Khwai River Tented Camp is run by Pilot Manga who has 30 years of experience working, guiding and living in the Okavango. Pilot is well known in Botswana and wherever you go someone will know him and on top of this he is without doubt one of Botswana's best guides. Savuti Tented Camp. Located in the heart of the Savuti area of Chobe National Park this fantastic area is again great for Predators. The subject of numerous recent documentaries on the Lions, Leopards, Hyena and Elephants there is always something going on here. Savuti is run by Mike Tebogo who has been working on safari all his adult life. A former assistant to Pilot he gained his guiding license with Pilots' help and has now been guiding for over 10 years. Mike is one of those unassuming guides whose knowledge and passion for what he does shines through the calm exterior. The price is US$280.00 per person per night sharing with a minimum of 3 nights per camp or 6 nights across 2 or 3 camps. If you wish to self-drive this is all you will pay. Flying itineraries: 6 nights at 2 camps - US$2,400 per person sharing (or US$2,425 if you include Khwai, the higher price is due to the landing fees at the airstrip which is owned privately) which includes flights from Maun, between camps and back to Maun. You can fly to Kasane instead at an extra cost. 9 nights - US$3,525 per person sharing which includes flights from Maun, between camps and back to Maun.
