We had a really exceptional trip. From the moment Leabo from Shangana picked us up in Maun right through to Vic Falls Airport two weeks later we didn’t really have to worry about anything. The itinerary was fantastic and the guys were very happy to make changes and be flexible with everything. Mobile safari was an adventure, but it was also some of the most glamorous comfortable camping we have ever done! And the food was just exceptional, we could have been on some private yacht somewhere, but no we were in the middle of the bush! It was great to be able to try lots of local food, many thanks for organising that! I don’t think we will forget having Lions in the camp at Moremi and seeing them passing the tent before watching them feast on last night’s kill for a long time… and that was just one of many amazing sights. I know that we wouldn’t have had the experience we had without the guys from Shangana – their knowledge, passion and determination to give us the best trip possible shone through, and they are a credit to David and Helene

“I spent two amazing nights at Shangana Safaris Lazy River Camp on the edge of the Okavango Delta with a friend. This camp was wild luxury without incurring the luxury safari price. KG was our host over the two days and kindly picked us up and dropped us back to nearby Maun. Following a scenic one and a half hour drive we arrived at our camp to find a tranquil and breathtaking space. Snacks were waiting for us as we took in the spectacular view over the hippo lagoon. The camp consists of a covered dining/seating area, a campfire and bathroom & shower facilities. If you want a magical night’s sleep and a quiet place to connect with a loved one, this experience has it all. Fall asleep listening to the grunts of the hippos and the chiming of bell frogs in a bed that feels like you are submerged in a fluffy cloud. Indulge your taste buds with the traditional foods served at dinner. Allow your curiosity and sense of adventure run wild as you take a Mokoro through the Delta and wander the plains with an expert guide. We encountered numerous wildlife in a guilt free, leave no trace sustainable way. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It was an experience of a lifetime.”

My son and I have recently returned to England after spending 12 nights in beautiful Botswana. We spent 8 of those nights on a mobile camping safari with your company and it was truly wonderful. We were expecting to be in a group but it ended up just being the two of us.The team who looked after us are all a great credit to your company. They were friendly, polite and totally professional throughout the trip. Our guide Leabo was so lovely and his knowledge and experience made it a truly great experience. We learnt so much from him! The food was exceptional and the cook Mg (probably not spelt like that!), was an inspiration to us. How he managed to cook such amazing vegan food out in the Bush was beyond me! He made us look forward to every meal and we were never disappointed. Happy smiling Moola (again probably spelt differently!) was so sweet and nothing was too much trouble. I loved listening to him singing! I would highly recommend this safari to anyone and have been telling friends they should go to Botswana! Please thank your fantastic team, they made our safari truly special.

We had an amazing time- totally surpassed our expectations and your guys were fabulous. We spent hours around the camp fire chatting with them. Probably being the only 2 guests made for a more informal atmosphere. Interestingly after the canoe trip we (I) slightly struggled to adjust to the comparative luxury of the mobile safari-but I suspect that would put us in the minority so don’t change anything. Everything I’d dreamed of- Thank you all.
