Letaka mobile safaris are arguably the finest mobile safari operation in all of Botswana. Owned managed and guided by the Reed brothers, Grant and Brent whom have over 40 years if guiding and safari experience between them
They excel where others have failed with their offerings of set departure group trips on predetermined routes. Generally speaking we are not usually supportive of group safaris but in the case of mobile safaris we feel the potential negative dynamic of individual personalities potentially clashing is mitigated by the sense of adventure one must have to take part in these trips.
Letaka safaris offer multiple trip options from 3 nights to 10 nights safari adventures visiting various national parks and reserves. They do also offer fully tailor made and private safaris, which we are most keen but there is of course a fairly big big price jump from group safari trips to private itineraries.
Vehicle safaris and full day game drives are interspersed with ad-hoc big game walking safaris and tracking dangerous game, along with Mokoro and boat safaris when in the Okavango Delta.
It is important to note that whist walking safaris are very common in Africa, it is really only the Zimbabwe professional guides, Zambian and Botswana professional guides that are truly comfortable and skilled enough at tracking and approaching big and dangerous game such as elephant, lion and rhino. Herds of buffalo will be approached but solitary male buffalo and leopard will be kept at some distance.
Letaka have an incredible reputation for the quality of their guides and indeed as a result of that have set up the Okavango guide training school to which Botswana’s main operators, Wilderness Safaris, Kwando, &Beyond etc all send their guides to rather than running their own in house guide training programme. They now employ 7 of Botswana’s top guides, all having gone through this excellent school?
We love Letaka simply for their authentic, pioneering, old school approach to mobile safaris. Extremely comfortable, semi luxury camps, serviced to a very high standard yet in extraordinary locations with all the freedom that mobile safaris offer.
Letaka offer multiple set departure and bespoke private safari itineraries throughout Botswana for a varying number of nights to best suit our clients . The guide price below is based on their 9 night set departure safari that takes in Chobe National Park, Savuti and the Okavango Delta. Please speak to one of our Botswana specialists to discuss all the set departure options or help design a bespoke mobile safari with Letaka.
