The Phenomenal Mobile Safari Food Cooked on Open Fire!
Our mobile safari operators here in Botswana provide the most amazing food, and it’s all cooked over open fires, in ground heated ovens, in the middle of nowhere! Mobile safaris are an intense experience, you travel with a small group or on an exclusive private safari (tailor-made to your request) with a professional guide, experienced chef and depending on the level of mobile safari, additional staff. The meals are planned before the start of the safari since the mobile safari often spends several days in the bush without access to resupplies (any special dietary requirements need to shared before departure). Travelling on a mobile safari in Botswana is one of the most intense ways to experience our beautiful nature.
