The safari experience at Afrika Ecco is all encompassing in that it offers game activities for both land and water to suit which destination is being visited.
The routine at Afrika Ecco can be tailor-made to suit the guests, so that daily schedules are built around what the guests would most like to do. In water-rich areas like the Okavango Delta, half the experience is on the water.
Botswana is a year-round destination and ‘when to go’ depends on preference regarding game viewing, landscape and weather.
Afrika Ecco is where you will find some of the best boating and canoeing activities in the Okavango Delta between June and August when the waters are high. This is a great time to travel to a number of different destinations in the country and will provide a varied experience.
In September and October, temperatures can soar to the mid-40°Cs and it is the driest period, with game keeping close to the remaining water. The rain begins in summer, and runs from November to April and transforms Botswana into a prime birding destination.
The climate in Botswana brings very hot, dry periods (September, October), and also very wet seasons. Winter (June, July, August) pack cold nights and mild, dry days. Depending on what time of year you travel, you will need certain essentials.
Afrika Ecco is the Real McCoy. This is one for the adventurers out there – those who are craving that connection with Africa on a deeper level. Tick off multiple destinations, fantastic game viewing, close encounters, and varied activities.
The low impact, rough and ready approach to the mobile safari keeps things exciting and ensures that guests leave with a greater understanding and appreciation of Botswana’s epic wilderness.
Expect to be comfortable with the essentials, and without the luxurious frills. Your hosts and guides at Afrika Ecco will go out of their way to make your experience unforgettable, taking on the bulk of the hard work that goes hand in hand with camping.
