Example Itinerary

Day 1-6

OKAVANGO DELTA, Botswana

  • Join our friends John Barclay and James Stenner on an incredible mobile safari, following the best wildlife trails
  • Spot elephants, crocs, and hippos as you cruise through the Delta’s waterways

Begin your safari trip in a traditional camp which is completely mobile, in an area abundant with wildlife and with a focus on authentic bush experiences.

Your safari will begin with five nights at Barclay Stenner, a luxury tented safari camp. When picking your safari, it’s easy to be distracted by the craze for contemporary styling, tasting menus and spas. While there’s a place for those luxuries, safari is about being in the bush and experiencing great wildlife. No two people could believe this more than John Barclay and James Stenner – John, a seventh-generation safari guide from the Kalahari, and James, an ex-Ibiza DJ from Northumberland. An unlikely duo, their incredible combination of personalities and authentic approach to safaris make for possibly the most unbeatable bush experiences in the world.

Day 6-11

OKAVANGO DELTA, Botswana

  • Cross waterways by horse to explore areas of the landscape not reachable by vehicle
  • Sleep under the twinkling African stars on a magical tree platform

Up the pace on your safari experience by joining a riding safari, spending the day galloping through the bush and keeping up with wildlife.

Once you’ve torn yourselves away from the expert hospitality and great wildlife adventures with Barclay Stenner, head off for an experience of another kind. Macatoo Camp is a haven for anyone who has pictured themselves on horseback, galloping alongside wildlife in the heart of one of the earth’s last great wildernesses. This experience is spectacular, even if you’re not of an equine leaning, with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Both boat and vehicle safaris are also available for when you’re not in the saddle. In the evening, foodies will enjoy wood-fired pizzas straight from the termite mound pizza oven.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
