"Our guides and camp aide were very nice, always interested and interesting, with many stories to tell, and strong knowledge of the wild animals. Sunway Safaris did a wonderful job, highly professional, well organized. Everything went fine, well beyond our expectations. It is difficult to say what we enjoyed most... I must say that the first sight of a lion, the hunting of zebras & impalas by wild dogs, and lions roaring close to the camp while we were in the tent (or around the fire...) were among the highlights."

If you have moved on from totally roughing it but like the idea of camping with a few extra comforts, this is ideal. This is a step above your average camping safari with spacious tents, en-suite bush bathrooms and stretcher beds. It won't break the bank. You'll have time to unwind by yourself in the Delta and Victoria Falls either side of your mobile safari.

Can I just say how much I enjoyed the mobile safari and what a good job the Bush Ways' boys did for us? It was so different to sleep in the tent with the animals close-by and to hear all the grunts, roars, snuffles, croaks and cheeps that you don't hear staying in lodges - and to rise in the morning to find animal tracks all around the campsites.

"Our guide, Mompati or ‘MP’, was excellent. He could predict almost exactly what the animals were going to do – right down to a huge male lion stalking two resting cheetahs in Moremi. We also saw wild dogs with puppies. The tents were very large with private bathrooms – we loved our open-air shower. We’ll never forget singing with the guys around the campfire. This was one of our best holidays ever. ‘Far out’, as we say in Australia."
