Sleeping and meals

A camping safari in the bush of Tanzania is the quintessential private African safari experience. A choir of nocturnal birds, insects and distant roaring lions lullabies you to sleep.

Sitting around an open camp fire with the southern skies bright overhead is the real way of appreciating Africa’s magic.

Each tent is large, spacious and well ventilated.

No bed provided but there is a foam mattress on the ground with floor canvas. On a basic camping safari guests sleep in private tents in designated campsites in or near national parks. Our safari crew sets up the camp and prepares all the meals. Whenever possible, we use more remote campsites to make your camping experience more private. There are permanent toilet and shower facilities at almost all the campsites. We heat water for showers at more remote sites.
