Afrika Ecco takes guests into the depths of Botswana's most wild and wonderful locations. Without the permanent structure of a lodge and the barrier between you and the natural environment, this experience is unbeatable. Guests are invited to sit back, relax and absorb the wonderful experience without having to contribute to camp duties. A camp assistant pitches tents and a dedicated chef prepares wholesome meals, while your guide expertly navigates game drives. A campfire crackles invitingly away in the evenings before a delicious 3-course meal is served al fresco. Lanterns light the campsite keeping things natural and subtle during the peaceful evenings in the bush.
Afrika Ecco stays true to a traditional camping safari, providing all the comfort you need, but without the luxurious extras. The camp is completely mobile and has no permanent structures. Central camp area equipped with folding safari chairs, a dining table, and tea and coffee facilities
Botswana. The beauty of Afrika Ecco Safaris is that there is no sole location, and the whole trip is an adventure discovering the safari hotspots of the irresistibly wild country.
Camp in traditional canvas tents with nothing surrounding you but the stellar night sky, the croaks of frogs, grunts of hippos, and the whooping calls of hyenas.
Mobile campsites are swiftly set up and taken down leaving nothing but footprints and peg holes in an otherwise unadulterated wildlife paradise.
Moremi and Savute are renowned for their abundance of predators. Following in the footsteps of the grazing herbivores, guests can see lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, and spotted and brown hyena.
Botswana is a year-round destination and ‘when to go’ depends on preference regarding game viewing, landscape and weather.
Afrika Ecco is where you will find some of the best boating and canoeing activities in the Okavango Delta between June and August when the waters are high. This is a great time to travel to a number of different destinations in the country and will provide a varied experience.
In September and October, temperatures can soar to the mid-40°Cs and it is the driest period, with game keeping close to the remaining water. The rain begins in summer, and runs from November to April and transforms Botswana into a prime birding destination.
The climate in Botswana brings very hot, dry periods (September, October), and also very wet seasons. Winter (June, July, August) pack cold nights and mild, dry days. Depending on what time of year you travel, you will need certain essentials.
Afrika Ecco is the Real McCoy. This is one for the adventurers out there – those who are craving that connection with Africa on a deeper level. Tick off multiple destinations, fantastic game viewing, close encounters, and varied activities.
The low impact, rough and ready approach to the mobile safari keeps things exciting and ensures that guests leave with a greater understanding and appreciation of Botswana’s epic wilderness.
Expect to be comfortable with the essentials, and without the luxurious frills. Your hosts and guides at Afrika Ecco will go out of their way to make your experience unforgettable, taking on the bulk of the hard work that goes hand in hand with camping.
