Luxury Mobile Safaris in Africa

The ultimate authentic wildlife experience

A luxury mobile safari in Africa is the ultimate authentic wildlife experience, taking you to some of the most remote and off the beaten track regions of the bush. The closest you will ever come to experiencing what the original explorers of the African bush experienced, mobile safari camps are set up in areas where game is abundant and often move with the movement of the animals, putting you in the front row of the action for unforgettable intimate experiences with the wildlife.

 This type of journey is the optimal experience for the discerning responsible adventurer. The luxury mobile safari camps are opulent tented affairs that offer all the comforts of a safari lodge, including en-suite hot ‘bucket’ showers, crisp linen on comfortable beds, al-fresco dining, and exclusive service. And, unlike their more permanent counterparts, they leave no trace on the environment whatsoever. Operating purely on solar power, cooking on open fires, and limiting water consumption due to no running water, these pop-up luxury camps leave the wilderness sites exactly as they found them.

 Experience a luxury mobile safari like no other in some of the most remote and pristine regions in Africa with our expert team Ker & Downey® Africa who can tailor your mobile safari itinerary to your individual needs, allowing you an exclusive experience of the African bush at its most unbridled, and uninhibited.
