NOTES

 

GUIDES & VEHICLES

Afrika Ecco Safaris will adjust the number of vehicles and staff members depending on how many guests are travelling. Game drive vehicles will carry guests and their luggage, while backup vehicles will carry camping gear and kitchenware.

 

From 5-8 guests: 1 Game drive vehicle, plus one backup vehicle.

From 9-12 guests: 2 Game drive vehicles, plus one backup vehicle.

From 12-16 guests: Able to cater for a group of 16 with each game viewer carrying 8 people at most; however, 12 is a more manageable number for a mobile safari of this nature.

 

Guides at Afrika Ecco Safaris have been selected based on their experience of Botswana as a country, and their experience in the world of professional guiding.
