The Lodge at Feline Fields has announced a new mobile camping safari experience to complement its unique Lodge offering. Guests on a six-night stay can enjoy two nights under canvas for an immersive luxury safari, before travelling by helicopter to relax and unwind in the spectacular Kalahari setting on The Lodge for four nights.
Begin this Botswanan exploration with two nights in the Khwai Community Concession on the north-eastern border of the Moremi Game Reserve. This rare setting exemplifies a community living in harmony with its natural surroundings. Guests will rest in a luxurious mobile camp, leaving no lasting trace yet offering the finest levels of comfort. Inviting beds with fluffy duvets, a private toilet and shower and a freshly cooked Bush breakfast from the Feline Fields team ensure guests are refreshed for a day of safari. Embark on game drives to witness some of the world’s most spectacular and rare wildlife including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, giraffe and hippo.
After two nights spent in the wilderness, take to the air by helicopter for a different perspective of the savannah as guests are whisked to The Lodge at Feline Fields just a forty-minute flight away. Landing in the middle of the remote, pristine Kalahari, The Lodge emerges like a mirage on the horizon.
After early mornings on safari, the schedule-free stay at The Lodge is the perfect respite. With just six suites, guests enjoy waking up to the fiery African sunrise. Game drives are conducted at flexible times throughout the day and night when possible in open safari vehicles. Guests can also head out into the Kalahari on foot or adapted sand-bike with an experienced guide to witness desert adapted species. At the Lodge, work out in Bush gym or with a game of tennis, before cooling off in the 25m lap pool or relaxing with a spa treatment in the open air. Fresh cuisine is served daily, inspired by the French influences of the Lodge’s owners.
For an insight into life on the savannah, guests can embark on a nature walk accompanied by the San Bushmen from Kaure Bush Camp to discover the secrets of the savannah, as well as observing their centuries’ old trance dance under the stars.
This six night safari starts from $6,750 (approximately £5,373) per person. This includes: two nights mobile camping in Khwai, four nights at The Lodge at Feline Fields, a transfer one-way by helicopter between Khwai and The Lodge, return road transfers, all activities including safari in Khwai and a bushmen experience at Kaure Bush Camp, all meals and drinks (excluding champagne and French wines), laundry service, VAT and a €30 donation to the Feline Fields Trust.
