Afro Trek Safaris

 

 

  

 

           

Afro Trek Safaris offers, short duration safaris of one, two or three days  (longer if required) to the finest wilderness areas of Botswana and Mokoro Trails through the reed fringed channels and lagoons of the Okavango Delta.

 

We offer a unique style of safari holiday incorporating flexibility, whilst still obliging your taste for adventure.

 

Afro Trek Safaris in association with Sedia Riverside Hotel, allows you to go on safari as you please, using Sedia Riverside Hotel to provide the necessary comforts one requires between safaris.  

Feel like languishing poolside at the hotel or bird watching down the river, and then go on safari tomorrow.                                                                                         

Enjoy the remote wilderness areas without it becoming an endurance test of overnight camping for days on end. 

Transfers between the remote areas and   consequently more interesting areas of Botswana can be long and uncomfortable, on rough roads, even for the hardened traveller.

  SAFARI GENERAL INFORMATION

Afro Trek Safaris offer personalised mobile safaris to suit individual requirements.

The safari vehicles we use on our safaris are open sided customised Toyota Landcruisers with individual seats mounted at the rear under a canvas canopy, seat belts are fitted to all seats.
Each vehicle has a fire extinguisher installed and the professional guide always carries a satelite phone.

Afro Trek Safaris mobile camping equipment includes spacious tents with mosquito gauze screening on all windows, doors and roof vent.

The beds are of fixed frame type with a mattress ( 100mm thick ) dressed in pure cotton bed linen, duvets and pillows.

Wash stands with towels and a clothes hanger are provided at each tent.

An occasional table and chairs are provided outside on the tent verandah. 

Camps are provided with traditional bush showers and toilet tents even though some campsites utilised do have well appointed ablution facilities.

Safari tables and chairs are provided in the camp and tea and coffee is always available.

Whilst guests enjoy game drives or relaxing periods in the camp, our camp chef with his ground crew will take care of the camp and look after the camp kitchen

All safari meals are freshly prepared with any special dietary requirements catered for.


Should we receive requests fro guests who do not mind joining other like minded adventurers on a safari then we do try and group people together which results in a more economic rate per person for the safari.

However we do try and maintain our limit of seven persons to a safari vehicle in order to ensure our professional guides can give their exclusive attention to the guests and offer a truly exceptional and memorable safari experience. 

Afro Trek Safaris are taken by well experienced professional guides with many years of guiding experience in the wilderness areas and reserves of Botswana. The professional guides will host guests on a comfort adventure safari into magnificent game viewing areas and offer a comprehensive insight into the cultures of the peoples combined with an in depth knowledge of the flora and fauna , resulting in a thoroughly rewarding safari experience.

 

   

SHOWERS and TOILETS 

Most of the National Parks and Game Reserves have basic (cold water) showers and flush toilets, though in the more remote parks there are no facilities whatsoever and toilets are dug in the ground with washing or showering  undertaken from bowls or shower buckets.

MOSQUITOES and MALARIA

Malaria is mainly prevalent during the months of the rainy season (October to April )

Most people are pleasantly surprised at how few mosquitoes there are in the region during the dry months of winter. However it is advisable to consider a course of malaria prophylactics if you are going to visit this region.

In these remote wilderness areas, ablution facilities can leave a lot to be desired or even be non existent, hence the convenience of our short duration safaris with the comfort of Sedia Riverside Hotel close at hand to refresh and revitalize in readiness for your next safari.
