Botswana Nightlife

  • Bush camping in the Okavango Delta

    What to do on the camp in the evening? The answer is simple - sit around the fire. This is what we did in the Delta. On the first night our guide had a surprise for me and my sister-in-law. What was it? Chairs. He said;" It's a tradition here that we respect our elders. As you are our seniors, I've brought two chairs for you". Yes, we were the...

  • the photo speaks volumes!

    actually walking on the roads, with or without the influence of alcohol, at night is really not very clever!

  • Nocturnal spotting

    A great part of the excitement on a Botswana safari is to sit next to a crackling fire at night and lance a spotlight into the African night to seek out nocturnal visitors.Hyenas in particular are frequent visitors to the fenceless camp sites and it was great fun to highlight them slinking in the dark within metres of where we were sitting. I...

  • Hide Away

    Spend a night in a hide, you will be fed well, then it's time to sit, look and listen for the nocturnal life, when you get weary, it's up to the hide itself, where you will be supplied with a mattress and indeed you will be able to spot any animals roaming about should you choose not to sleep.Normally you will sleep in your clothing, so don't...

  • Nighttime Drives

    Take a night drive with a guide and tracker to spot the nocturnal life of Africa.It's hunting time for the cats and a good time to spot leopard. Other 'cuties' to be seen are nagaapies (bushbabies), anteaters, porcupine, African kangaroos, hyena, jackal, long eared foxes and bats to name just a few.Take a jacket as the evenings can get chilly.

  • Nightlife Safari Style

    When you are wildnerness camping the whole point is the lack of bars, nightclubs, etc because the bush provides its own music. Every night we went up into our tree-house tent on the roof of our vehicle, dangled our legs over the side, and sat star-gazing and listening to the nocturnal bush come alive. It was incredible. One Sunday evening the local...

  • I dont feel like dancing !!

    Enjoy the bushveld, sit around a campfire, gaze at the stars and tune into the night sounds, feel your heart race the first time you hear lions roar in the distance.. Long sleeves and long pants to protect you from mosquito bitesSocks and closed shoes - scorpions come out to play at night

  • Around the campfire.

    Nightlife doesn't eally exist when there are only a few of you in an isolated safari lodge. It will usually consist of sitting in the bar or around the dining table discussing what you have seen that day. Occasionally there were get togethers around a campfire which would tend to go on quite late, but generally since most people were tired after a...

  • Lots of cheap drink...

    The bar at 'Audi Camp' in Maun.Botswana is not the most happening of places, and most of the activity tends to be centered around the camps/hotels. This one is particularly lively and has a good selection of drinks.... Anything goes.

  • Campers style is different

    the five of us each took a turn cooking, diversity and variety.>>> recounting our varied trvael experience >>Stargazing, always using the Southern Cross as our main reference as we were

  • Watching the stars

    Watching the stars at night sitting at a campfire. The african skies can be so beautifull! There are much more, and other, stars to see than in europe.

  • None at the Chobe Game Lodge,...

    None at the Chobe Game Lodge, except for listening to the wild animals outside your doors. (Actually, the lodge will show you a movie on animals if you ask them)

  • There ain't much to doat night...

    There ain't much to doat night except sit round the camp fire. But its best to get any early night so that you can wake up early to go game spotting. If you have a good spot like and you're confident you can find you way back to you're camp site, then a night drive is goodfor spotting nocturnal animals. If you havent made you're campsite yet and it...

  • Best nightlife spot: Gin and...
