Introducing Unlimited Tours & Safaris and professional guide Moses Ntema

 

Unlimited Tours & Safaris is a local owner operated Safari company that prides itself with a high level of service and real wildlife experience.  Founded in 2007, the company is owned and run by Moses Ntema, a professional safari guide with many years of experience from Kwando, Wilderness Safaris and GreatPlains. Moses wanted to create his own company to be able to run safaris the way he wants them, basic camping safaris with great guiding in the nationals parks  and community run concessions of Botswana. He wants to show the beauty of the landscape, animals and people of Botswana.

Always a special treat to see the fantastic colours of the lilac breasted roller! This one from Khwai, taken on a 5 night Kalahari Moremi camping safari.

Lovely ..........

It was with Moses, when I had my first sighting of the 3 cheetah brothers (blood brothers) down the Savuti channel in the WS concession (he was starting out as a guide himself at that point in time) - how time flies!!!

The movement of fleeing warthog caught our attention as we drove along a track in the Passarge Valley (CKGR). Only when Moses looked to the left did we realize that this lioness already had her sights on them. She later decided that a chase wasn't worth it in the midday sun. We eventually counted a mix of around eight lionesses and cubs and one male in this pride. Take a close look at the background!

Deception Valley Campsite #4
This is where the leopards seemed to be a constant presence, whether we spotted them or not. One afternoon the only inkling we had that one might be around was when the guinea fowl were making a fuss in the bush. Our first night talking next to the fire Moses heard something and picked up the spotlight and turned it on to reveal a glorious-looking leopard only meters away. Before the client could grab the camera the leopard had quietly slunk into the bush. Another afternoon Bucks (our chef) was gathering some firewood when he again saw the leopard in camp. Normally when we got back from an afternoon drive they had a fire going and were busy with dinner. This time he and Rex (camp hand) had accomplished nothing when we got back...

Impala in Moremi Game Reserve, from the picture you can really tell it is the green season! 
Taken on a private guided safari to Kalahari  and Moremi in february, it is very productive time!

Have a look at one of the tiniest but finest sightings that you can find in the bush. At Unlimited Tours & Safaris we think it is important to also focus on the small things. Yes we want to show our guests cats and mammals, but think that also looking at the small creatures will give a better understanding of the wonderful nature around us. You are advised to bring a makro lens with you for a wide range of unlimited sightings! Photo by professional guide Moses Ntema.

Agreed! It does look good, one question I have I would assume you might lose game viewing time by going with the participatory vs non participatory options? In other words, would the camp staff give you more flexibility to stay out longer or leave earlier on a departure day?

When I went on a group tour with explore worldwide, it was supposed to be non participatory, but we all chipped in with breaking down camp as we can't move on until that is done, because it was pulled on a trailer, connected to our vehicle. Also iirc there was no night driving allowed in the national parks, so I guess you have to be back at camp for a certain time?
If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.

@basto - sounds really good. Are the fully accommodated safaris also priced for a group of 5 for the $300 pppd rate? What about 2 people on this safari? Thanks!

@kittykat23uk - you are right, our fully accommodated safaris gives you a more flexibility to be out longer and get more game-viewing time, since we will then have a separate back-up vehicle with all camp gear that will stay and break up camp before moving on and set up the new camp. For the participatory safari we will also go back to camp just a bit earlier to be able to have some light whilst making dinner and other chores.  

 

If we are in community concessions there might also be some difference for going off road, if it is a participatory safari we might have a trailer if transfering between camps and that might make off roading a bit of a challenge... 

 

@Sangeeta - yes, fully accommodated safaris for a group of 5 is 300 USD pppd, if you are two people on the safari the rate is 350 USD pppd. This is still great value for a private guided safari with one of the best guides around! Well, perhaps I am a little bit biased here, but Moses will make your safari a good one ;-)

 

Just to make it clear the itinerary is just a proposal, but you are welcome to discuss other itineraries with us if you want to visit other places or do other activities. So you can design you own dream safari just the way you want it for about the same rates as long as the distances are not too long between places. 

 

cheers,

Tom

Some photos by Moses from a recent trip to Nxai Pan. This is how it looks like in the dry season,wildlife and scenery is quite interesting with unique landscapes. Zebras are between Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pan, the drinking place is Boteti river, so this is where they concentrate during the warmer part of the day.

Nxai Pan can be a interesting alternative also in the dry season and gives you a different experience that is easily combined with Okavango, Chobe or Moremi.

Some very tempting and exciting options.  Why do the letters GTG keep flashing over my head in a little cartoon balloon?

 

Are your group trips always with a ready-made group or can solos latch onto a group?

 

Thanks for posting this, Basto!

@Atravelynn - thanks for your reply! 

 

Yes, a safaritalk GTG would be brilliant! I have been thinking about it myself as well. So I guess the question is just who, when and what parks? ;-)

I am definitely in, so if we can have 2-5 other guests then we can do it! 

 

Moses is just off on a mobile with some guests from Spain with a nice itinerary:

 

Okavango delta - mokoro, walking, island camping
Moremi - game drives
Khwai - game drives, night drives, walking
Savuti - game drives 
Chobe - river cruise, game drive

 

What do you say?

 

At the moment we only do private safaris, so no open groups to join. We can try and give a good price for a single guest, we have done a few of them. That is really a private safari !!

 

cheers,
Tom

We have had nice sightings at Nxai Pan lately on our mobile safaris! This photo of mating lions taking a well earned rest was taken by Moses last week! Strong and healthy looking lions!
