Facts about nature camping in Tanzania
Have you always dreamt of experiencing African nature in its purest form? Camping in a National Park or African wilderness? Have a great cook serve you dinner under the impressive African skies? Enjoy a campfire, inspiring ‘bush’ stories and listen to the sounds of the wild animals of Tanzania: lions roar, hyenas ‘giggle’, baboons bark, or zebras and impalas galloping past? Or hold your breath, as the inquisitive giraffe family amble closer … to watch you!
Join us on our Nature Camping Safaris! We will take you to campsites right in the middle of the bush-bush. We will cook you delicious dinners, set up camp together and look after your safety. We will be on guard while you sleep and when you are awake enjoying yourself. We offer you a magical African adventure, 24/7 in nature, supervised by experienced guides.
We camp in public campsites in the National Parks, so opening hours are not an issue. Well before the first visitors are allowed in, you are enjoying daybreak with a delicious cup of coffee or tea, seeing and hearing Nature come alive.
Public Campsites right in the middle of the National Parks
We stay in public campsites in the Tanzanian National parks. There are simple shower and toilet facilities. There are rangers/night watchmen for your protection.
We provide all basic camping gear: canvas tents with mosquito netting, pillows, sleeping bags and mats, chairs, plates, mugs and cutlery.
*If you need more comfort just let us know. For example a standing-height tent, stretcher, thicker mattress, comfortable chair etc. This all for a slight extra fee.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner
A professional chef will travel with us. Some days breakfast is a moment of tranquillity, slowly waking up in the sounds of Africa all around you. Enjoy a simple breakfast in the immense silence, or to the sounds of the bush calls. Some days we start out early with a breakfast or lunch box on-the-road, to spot animals at the river or on the savannah. Sometimes we serve a hot lunch. Dinner is always a hot meal prepared with local ingredients by our chef. We do our own shopping along the way, so we can take any specific needs/wishes into account.
Special dietary wishes
Please clarify of any special dietary needs when you register so that we can take care of them.
2 nights on 1 campsite
In our example itineraries, we often stay at the same campsite for two nights in a row. Breaking and setting up camp every day takes up valuable time which is better spent observing magnificent nature and everything in it!
- The programme is more relaxed
- Game drives can be carried out from daybreak until dark.
*If you want to see as much as possible in a short time, we advise you to choose a Tented Lodge safari (or combination) which we also organise.
