Mara Expedition Camp

Live out the adventure of a lifetime as close to nature as you can get in the relaxing solitude of the African landscape. 

Comfortable mobile safari tents with ensuite bathrooms (with flush w.c. and steaming hot bucket shower) at secluded campsites in the game-rich Chobe National Park offer up close and personal encounters with Botswana’s wildlife.

Carefully positioned as close as possible to the resident game, enjoy the simplicity of our mobile tents at private campsites in one of the top wildlife areas in the world, and home to some of the largest elephant herds on the African continent.

Evidence of vast herds of wildlife wandering the African bush exists on the well-used animal trails that meander between the tents.

BOAT CRUISE ON THE CHOBE RIVER
The best way to end a day of safari here is sipping on a cocktail while watching an African sunset over the still waters of the Chobe River from the comfort of one of our specially designed riverboats. Sundowner cruises are also a great way of seeing buffalo up close as they come out of the shade to graze in the cooler evenings and elephants as they wade in the river. Chobe is renowned for its abundance of dramatic sable and roan antelopes with their impressive horns. Sitatungas - antelope with splayed feet to help them run in swamps - are often seen here, as are the wild dog and lion that prey upon them. Subject to availability

GAME DRIVES

Renowned as one of the top wildlife reserves in the world, morning and afternoon game drives explore the game rich landscape of Chobe National Park. &Beyond’s professionally trained guides will ask you about your favourite wildlife and will do their best to ensure that your preferences are met, whether it is tracking a particular species or spending more time enjoying each sighting and getting to know the habits of the animals. They will also tell you about the vegetation of the region and will explain the behaviour of the animals that you come across. In some cases, the guides will be able to identify individual animals and let you know about their history and habits.
No additional cost
