Semunyeni’s life-changing mobile safari experiences take you through some of Botswana’s most beautiful and diverse regions, from the wild and ancient Kalahari desert, the grassy plains of Nxai Pan and the Makgadikgadi – an ancient salt pan the size of Switzerland – and the world-renowned Okavango Delta, a pristine wilderness of meandering channels and flood plains teeming with game.

Botswana’s unparalleled game experience and extraordinary natural diversity offers more than simply ticking off the Big Five and nearly 600 bird species. This is the African camping safari at its most authentic and choosing a mobile safari over a traditional lodge promises a truly immersive and life-changing experience.

Our unique “glamping” (glamorous camping) approach is more luxurious than traditional camping and our tented safari trips are always personal and private. Every delicious meal is catered for on our all-inclusive glamping trips, and while guests set off on daily 4×4 game drives through each reserve, our team packs up camp and moves the tents on to the next remote location to prepare ahead and welcome everyone back at sundown. Guests enjoy dinners served around a roaring fire and under vast, star-strewn African skies, before retiring to sleep in spacious and comfortable tents. Once snug in bed, the sounds of the wild fill the air – often the roar of a lion followed by the whoop of a hyena. Early morning hippo grunts greet the dawn and shy buck graze quietly as the camp wakes up to steaming cups of tea and homebaked rusks.

We spend time getting to know your interests before you even leave home. So whether you’re a wildlife photographer or passionate birder – or simply need to disconnect from the world – Semunyeni can tailor-make an unforgettable safari experience for you, whether you’re looking for a very comfortable, all-inclusive mobile safari or to simply join us for part of your 4×4 road trip.






Unseen, unexpected, unbelievable… under magnificent night skies be surrounded by ancient indigenous trees and unending bush beyond.  Our Under African Skies dining is a sensory experience, a delight for all the senses – an enchanting dinner.

A beautiful bush dinner is set up with crisp linen with a touch of African decór. Attentive, unobtrusive staff serve Cape wines and freshly prepared food using fresh local produce with international influences. A memorable bush dinner is the perfect ending to a thrilling evening safari.


Create nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos.


Dear Dalene, Tasmyn and Frank!

Being finally back in Germany and back to reality, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to thank you once more for the incredible time we had with you on our safari through Botswana.

All of you did an amazingly good job, made me feel safe and well looked after throughout the journey, and definitely want to come back!

In my opinion, you perfectly managed to keep the right balance between being absolutely professional in what you’re doing and being very personal at the same time. I especially enjoyed hearing all the interesting stories you had to tell about your lives and experiences (which are so very different from mine) and spending all the quality time with you during the siestas.  Also: if I had been pissed on by a blister beetle, I would have trusted you with my wounds just as much as poor Tyla 😀

Frank’s knowledge and guiding on the game drives and beyond were absolutely impressive as well. We had a direct comparison on the Chobe River boat cruise: the guide in the boat seemed to only know half of the things Frank knows: he often seemed to not being able to answer our questions, why Frank jumped in and made him look a bit old. Don’t get me wrong: this is not a complaint about the guy in the boat, just used it as an example of Frank’s outstanding performance. So make sure to keep him in your boat!

I might have already said it in that campfire talk, on the last night: I tried to keep an open mind before I went to Botswana to not create any expectations that are being left unfulfilled. Therefore I was even more overwhelmed with what I got. I only looked at your website after being back home and had to determine that you don’t make any promises there that you wouldn’t keep. Which is rare in these times of internet glossing.

So well done! You can be very proud of yourselves, not only for having built up such a great business at such a young age (compared to me), but also for running the business with a perceptible passion and joy. Not many people can say the same about their jobs at the end of the day.

As Tasmyn asked me to send her some of the extraterrestrial-looking photos I took on the scenic flight over the delta, I have attached a few. Hope you like them. Feel free to use them any way you like.

I wish you a continued successful year, good luck with the further development of your property in Maun and many low-maintenance and satisfied guests.

Best regards

Alex - GER
