Camping Safaris

Camping safaris range from luxurious to budget. With each itinerary, the category of camping will differ. These categories are as follows;
Luxury Camping, This is where all your needs are catered for and accommodation, mostly under canvas, is sophisticated and comfortable with large walk-in tents, proper beds and shower tents, camps are prepared before your arrival, well qualified staff take care of all aspects of camp life, and fully outfitted four wheel drive safari vehicles with roof hatches are your means of transport.

Mid-Range Camping, with walk-in tents and safari showers, staff on hand to take care of cooking and other camp chores, and where transport is either by minibus or four wheel drive safari vehicles.

Budget Camping, where everyone pitches in and helps to erect tents, cook and do the dishes. Food is simple and your evening wash is often only a bowl of water. Overland trucks or minibuses are commonly used on such safaris.

Camping on your own. There are designated camp sites in most National Parks and some privately owned, where you can pitch your own tents. Most of the privately owned sites have good facilities, but in the Parks you must be self sufficient.
