What are Camping Safaris? by

There is no better way to connect with the bush than by making camp and falling asleep under the African Stars. A camping safari is a truly immersive African experience that brings the wilds of Africa all the way to your doorstep. There is no surround-sound quite like the African bush under an endless star-studded sky.

Our broad selection of African Camping Safaris has been cherry picked by our intrepid safari experts and is representative of the best African camping tours available on the continent.

Most of the Camping Safaris are conducted with the use of walk in two man dome tents. These tents are specifically designed with the African Bush in mind. Each tent is large, spacious and well ventilated. It is often expected that you will bring along your own sleeping bag, however on several of the Safaris listed a sleeping bag will be provided (or one will be available for hire).

Camping safaris generally require a level of active participation from you. This is generally restricted to the camping area where you will be expected to put up your own tent and occasionally help out with meal preparation on a roster basis. Camping Safaris generally appeal to active clients wishing to experience Africa in its most pure form.

Camping in Africa is a once in a lifetime experience, a way to reconnect to Mother Africa, to be at one with the natural rhythm of the bush and get up close and personal with the sensory experience that makes this continent unique.
