Our Budget Camping Tours are for travellers who want a hands-on experience of Mother Nature. Setting up your campsite and helping build a campfire whilst surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and scenery. If you dream of a lifetime African adventure, embark on a journey with us sleeping under the stars while listening to the sounds of wildlife in the distance.

We offer budget camping safaris suited to travellers who may prefer to travel in a younger group (aged 18 to 39). Or, you can choose a mixed age group (18 to 60). A camping safari must not be underestimated and will require active participation which means good health and a fair degree of fitness. We have a tour to suit what you have in mind, so please do not hesitate to enquire with us.

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. Or, you can opt to have your own tent by including the single supplement (valid on select camping tours).

Your tents are put up and taken down easily – your Tour Leader will show you exactly how to do this and help out when you are unsure. All tents are well-ventilated by means of a tent-door and window, covered with mosquito net. They also include a fly-sheet for the rain. Your sleeping mats are 5cm in height and made of high density foam covered in pvc (for hygienic reasons). You only need to bring your own sleeping bag, pillow and towel.

The African campsites are basic and comfortable. Most have warm showers and flushing ablutions, while others may have natural ablutions.

Although the crew do most of the work, the nature of these tours is not that of a beach holiday.  A little assistance from the group can make a real difference as it means that the guides have more time for you and more time to make the tour amazing so getting involved definitely enhances the tour experience.  This is an adventure, not a holiday.

You’ll be asked to help out with:

• Assisting with washing up duties
• Helping with the food preparation if time is pressing
• Loading and unloading the truck
• Loading and unloading your own bag
• Help keeping the truck clean (it is your home after all for the next days and weeks)
• Help setting up camp
• Putting up and taking down your tent. The first time is a challenge, thereafter it’s a breeze!
