Letaka Camping

High quality mobile camping safaris in Northern Botswana.

Chobe & Savuti Botswana

  • Quality guiding
  • Comfortable tents
  • Experience unspoilt wilderness
  • Variety of locations

Letaka Safaris operates group mobile camping trips in Botswana to a very high standard. We recommend these safaris to those seeking the excitement of camping in the wilds of the country whilst experiencing some comforts such as en-suite bathroom facilities and enjoying the company of a small group. We can choose an itinerary to suit your dates and requirements, the most popular being the Northern Highlights.

Letaka Camping takes place using large sahara style tents. The tents have a high roof and are kitted out with solid base beds (all linen and towels included) and having a 2m x 3m shade verandah with camping chairs to the front and a similar size en-suite bathroom area through a zip door at the back. Water for your bucket shower is heated as needed on camp fires and the toilet is a longdrop loo.

Top quality meals are prepared seemingly out of nowhere as your highly skilled camp staff bake bread and prepare feasts while you are out with your guide on a game drive! Dine under the stars at proper tables with good South African wines to wash down a sumptious three course dinner and sit around the camp fire with a nightcap, listening to the noise of the bush. Mess tent shelters are erected in camps for shade and weather protection.

The safaris operate a variety of routes covering Moremi, Savuti, Chobe, Central Kalahari, Nxai Pan, Makgadikgadi Pan and the Okavango Panhandle. Extentions to Victoria Falls and Livingstone can be arranged.

Letaka Safaris are run by Brent and Grant Reed, known locally as 'the Letaka Brothers', the name coming from a local word which sounds like Letaka that means 'reeds'! Originally all safaris were owner-guided but the company has now grown and employs 7 additional guides. The quality of guiding is at the forefront of a Letaka safari, Brent and Grant have strong ties with the Okavango Guiding School which they founded to successfully elevate the standard of guiding throughout Botswana.

Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

Excellent for the food and camp staff, but terrible tents and camps beds - both past their sell-by date. The zips were very stiff and hard to get up and down. The beds were absolutely dreadful - thin mattresses which slithered around. They need to be got rid of. TRIBES REPLY: We\'re so sorry to hear about the standard of the tents and beds. This is very unlike Letaka, and this has now been taken up with them. They send Mary their unreserved apologies. New tents and beds (and mattresses) are being delivered at the start of August 2014. Tribes has seen now photos of the new, bespoke beds and the mattresses are all thick and comfortable. Zips do break on safaris such as this, but the team has a mending kit with them. Letaka are going to ensure that guides check all tents whilst on safari and mend anything that requires it. It is really regrettable that Mary had such a bad experience with the camping equipment on this trip, but Tribes are now reassured that this will not happen again due to the measures put in place.
