Exploring the world on food surrounded by nothing, but pure remote wilderness that is the best way perhaps the only way to discover the multiple places of Africa. For our guests it is an experience that will last a lifetime and so it is for us. This is our a story, a story about our passion for the world. South Luangwa National Park is widely celebrated as Africa’s best. To us it is home. People tell us the wildlife is incredible and the
landscape breathtaking. Our guests say that a walking safari in this part of Africa reminds them of a bygone era. Of Livingstone exploring the unknown. For our guests we wish to show the magical Africa as we know it. The feeling of freedom in the world. It is why we operate a mobile walking safari. Everyday the guests get to explore a new wilderness area as they never have to return to the same camp. While they kept on walking, we break down the camp and set it up elsewhere. It is one safari with several destinations. Each day our guests will camp in a new campsite which is so familiar yet so unknown. As the tents are situated underneath a
different majestic tree with another part of the river stretched out in
front of us. It is yet another piece of paradise. A mobile walking safari is another complicated operation and requires an united team of eleven strong men during day and night. A team that has become know as our A-team for a good reason. Moving the entire camp on an almost daily basis is a demanding task, but with our passion and team spirit the process becomes an adventure in its own. We love doing this. The first day of a mobile walking safari always brings a lot of excitement amongst the team members. There’s a lot to prepare before the
guests arrive at noon. Our bush chef does magic in his kitchen under the ebony trees. While the room attendance straighten the sheets in the rustic spacious tents. The waiter sets up the bar to provide refreshments upon arrival. All eleven men are getting ready for another exciting safari. With arrival of our guests a peaceful atmosphere descendes into our camp on the river. While enjoying a sundowner it is time to light up our camp. However the suns heat remains for another hour it is time for us to get away. We need to provide our guests with warm water as in you do, is entering our world With the suns golden reflection in the river breakfast is served on the river bank while looking out over magical Africa. And then it is time for the real adventure. For our guests that means a three hours walk in the bush, for us it means moving the entire camp. We break down the tent pack the truck and set out a new campsite all within two hours. There is no time to waste as our new camp needs to be set up before the guests arrive back from their morning walk. Every member of the team knows what to
do and in the blink of the eye the camp arises from the dust. By the time the guests arrive back to the smell of fresh bread, everything is ready. Wood has been cut, the table is set, even the library has been put up and our guests will find their tents exactly as their left them this morning. Though they are surrounded by another part of wilderness a mobile walking safari camp is rustic, but has it’s small luxuries In their lies the secret that makes this safari so special. Ice cold drinks, a tent with comfortable beds, a bucket shower, freshly baked bread and all this surrounded by Africa’s
beauty what more, would we wish for ? Life at mobile walking safaris is something we challenge. Guests come and go and we thrive on seeing them experiencing the life that we treasure so much even if it is just for a brief moment. At end of the
journey our guests have become friends. Their experience turned into a precarious memory and their footprints a vanishing sign of their visit for leaving no trace in this unspoiled natural world.
