Camping Tours

Our budget camping safari tours suit travelers who want an authentic experience in Africa. While a camping trip is fun, it also requires you to actively participate which means you should be in good health and fairly fit.

You will need to bring a sleeping bag on your camping tour to Africa while you will be staying in tents provided. Sometimes camp will be set up at an established campsite with facilities while at other times a suitable clearing in the bush will be home for the night. We also offer accommodated tours if you prefer to have a comfortable bed instead.

What is a Camping Tour in Africa all about?

During a Budget Camping Tour you will stay in large two-man dome canvas tents which are spacious enough for two adults and your luggage. Alternatively opt to have your own tent by including the single supplement which is optional on selected routes.

Tents are easily put up and taken down and rest assured your Tour Leader will show you exactly how to do this. All tents are well-ventilated by means of a tent door and window with mosquito net protection. The tent also includes a fly-sheet for the rain. Sleeping mats are provided which are 5cm in height and made of high density foam covered in pvc. You only need to bring your own sleeping bag, pillow and towel.

The African campsites are basic but comfortable. While most have warm showers and flushing ablutions others may only have natural ablutions.

What is required of me on a Camping Tour in Africa?

Although the crew do most of the work some assistance from the group is necessary. Getting involved is half the fun and certainly enhances the tour experience. This is an adventure and not a typical holiday.

You’ll be asked to help out with:

• Lending a hand with washing up duties
• Helping with food preparation from time to time
• Loading and offloading the truck
• Packing and unpacking your own bag
• As it will be your home for the duration of the tour your tour guide will ask you to keep the truck clean
• Assist with setting up camp
• Putting up and taking down your tent. The first time is a challenge, thereafter it’s a breeze!
