Bedouin Bush Camp (or similar (semi-permanent tented camp with en-suite bathrooms)
Departure: Your package starts with a pick-up from Maun Airport and a transfer to your accommodation in the Greater Moremi Area.
Travelling Times and Distances: All travelling times are affected by road conditions, border crossings, detours and weather conditions, therefore on certain days travelling times may be longer than anticipated especially where there is a lot of distance to be covered. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa has to offer. Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.
Experience one of Botswana’s finest game viewing areas in an unfenced, mobile bush camp located on a private concession in close proximity to the Moremi Game Reserve, a 2-hour drive from Maun. Twelve comfortable tents are positioned privately under big Acacia trees, offering travellers an authentic and secluded African bush experience. The camp is also equipped with a homely and communal dining and bar area.
The tents are covered with Bedouin-style fly-sheets, offering guests protection from Botswana’s weather conditions and fashioning the camp with a distinctive nomadic appearance & atmosphere. Listen to the remarkable night sounds of the bush from the comfort of a safari tent equipped with twin beds, soft pillows and duvets. Doors and windows are fitted with mosquito screening and insect repellent is provided.
To limit the camp’s impact on the environment yet still afford the necessary comfort in the bush, the en-suite bathrooms are equipped with flush toilets and hot bucket showers. Please note that the camp is solar powered, and cameras and mobile phones can be charged in the communal areas should the power levels allow it. At night the paths to your tents will be illuminated by lanterns and your guide will escort you back to the privacy of your tent.
A Typical Day at Camp: Your day starts off with an early wake-up call by our staff, tea, coffee and rusks will be provided before we head out for our morning game drive. We will return to the camp for a hearty breakfast and relax over lunch time. Alternatively, a full day game drive, with a packed lunch, is undertaken. Enjoy the tranquillity on your own private ‘veranda’ or relax, read and chat to our guides in our homely restaurant and bar area.
In the afternoon, we will head out on another game drive hopefully spotting some of the Big 5 and return back to camp just after sunset, where our guests will enjoy a delicious dinner, prepared by our well-trained cooks. After dessert, you will be given the opportunity to join us on a night game drive (once) during your stay. Relax around the campfire with a good glass of wine or another drink from our bar as you listen to the interesting and entertaining stories from our guides.
Our bush camp offers you excellent service coupled with a warm, friendly atmosphere. The crew originate from the resident villages and we, therefore, use local suppliers and services wherever possible, to provide them with a steady income and support responsible tourism practices.
Please bring enough money (Botswana Pula) in order to pay for drinks consumed at our bar as there are no credit card facilities at our camp.
Visas: The onus is on the client to organize all visas required to visit Botswana prior to departure.
Travel Insurance: Please note that travel and cancellation insurance is mandatory for every guest travelling with Jenman African Safaris. All insurance is solely the responsibility of our guests. Please ensure you arrange your own insurance with protection for the full duration of your journey to cover personal injury, damage and loss of personal items including but not limited to camera equipment and other electronic items, medical expenses, repatriation expenses and loss of luggage, etc. Please speak to your travel agent if you require assistance.
