We use the 3 metre heavy duty canvas dome tent with an open air en-suite extension with canvas walls, a pit toilet with ash and sand alongside (to cover and stop odours) The Shower is separate and shared and 1 shower is set up for every 4 people
Our second option is spacious Sahara Tents with toilet, shower and hand basins ensuite for the ultimate comfort whilst you are still in a pristine wilderness area.
We supply chairs and tables for general dining and carry large quantities of food, both dry and fresh. The Landcruisers are fitted with a 40 litre deep freeze, which enables us to keep perishables frozen for days at a time, and in addition to this we carry several cold boxes. Our vehicles are fitted with 220 volt inverters which are linked to Botswana plug sockets for easy charging. We recommend that you buy a Botswana converter, these are the same as South Africa, 3 round pin plugs. We ask that you use the charging facilities for recharging camera, laptop and torch batteries only. Two 12 volt outlets are also available (like the old cigarette lighters) in each of our two safari vehicles
We supply towels but clients are advised to bring their own clothing, soap, toiletries, sunscreen, binoculars, camera with zoom lens, digital memory cards and a hat. If clients bring a video camera it is suggested that they also bring a 12 volt charger so batteries can be charged by the Landcruiser. Beanbags for the car windows can be provided for you on request.
