Mobile Safaris Botswana

1 Day Moremi Safaris.

Day safaris to the nearby Moremi game reserve are very popular with guests with limited time. A surprising amount of game can be viewed on these trips. From mid May to mid August our trips start at 6:30am and return at 6:30pm, the rest of the year they start at 6:00am and return at 7pm. Warm clothes are necessary during the winter months and rain gear during the rainy season ( late November to late March). After passing through the “Buffalo fence”an hour out of Maun you will enter some of the top wildlife areas that Botswana or even Africa has to offer.

We send you out with a tea, coffee, cereal and rusks for a light breakfast stop a little before you reach the park gate. At around 1pm your guide will pick a scenic spot for you to have a lunch of bread, cheeses, cold meats, salads and fruit. We send 2lts of bottled water per person. We also supply a cooler with ice for any extra drinks you may wish to take.

For more details check out Okavango Air Rescue – Emergency Evacuation Service


The Old Bridge Backpackers is pleased to team up with OAR which operates a Helicopter for Emergency Evacuations. The current radius of operation is Northern Botswana and the Central Kalahari.

We feel that anyone going on Mokoro trip should contact OAR for coverage.
OAR is based in Maun and transports medical assistance to its Patrons by Helicopter in the event of a medical emergency. Professional staff on board will treat and stabilize you at the scene of the accident or incident. Patrons will then be flown to the nearest appropriate location or medical facility from where further arrangements will be made.
If you’re a foreign visitor, you can become a patron of OAR for currently 175 Pula / year [roughly 20 USD]. OAR is a private organization financed by the annual contributions of its Patrons. Each contribution entitles its Patrons, travelling within OAR’s range of operation, to one free, medically necessitated air rescue per year. The contribution is not an insurance premium, but is a payment that assists to keep the Helicopter airborne.
