Could you be more specific about the budget? Botswana is an expensive destination, especially in high season- there are camps up to $2500+ per person per night. Your idea of "mid price" might not be mid price for Botswana!

I think that you should post on www.Safaritalk.net because you will find so many people on this site who like yourself don't have the budget for staying at super expensive camps in Botswana. Even though it is a terribly expensive safari destination, you will find out that there are plenty of options for people with a midrange budge, one of course will be to take a mobile safari.Anyway I have been to Botswana four times.I simply love the place.

There are posters here who do suggest alternative choices to super expensive lodges . Botswana's budget & mid range budget suggestions both lodges and mobile safaris are posted here regularly . Again it is your definition of mid range in terms of $'s that will dictate suggestions.

This forum is fine for budget and mid range, - you can get a 8 day fully serviced, catered en-suite mobile safari from Maun to Kasane with 1 night Maun, 2 nights in Moremi, 2 nights Khwai and 2 nights Savuti for around us$ 2000.00 a person with no single supplement, and then there are more budget options with participation safaris for less with operators like bushways. There are lots of great options for your trips, Even more mid range lodges, like Oddballs Camp and Bakwena etc....

@ poster 2 ‘’ because you will find so many people on this site who like yourself don't have the budget for staying at super expensive camps in Botswana.’’.I don’t know on what factual basis you have deduced this to make such a sweeping statement but as a regular contributor to this forum I have many times given suggestions for non-high end lodges and listed tour operators and accommodators who offer budget and mid-range options as well as self-drive, self-cater suggestions, none of which are super expensive. I am not the only contributor who does so and likewise there are many other posters who also do, including two who have responded here.
