Camping is almost a way of life in Africa so going on a Camping Safari is certainly not a new concept – it is a brilliant way to feel part of nature.
If you are not wanting to pitch you tent every night but want to sleep out with the wild and to be one with nature, there are many camping safaris that use semi permanent tent sites. These semi permanent tents will have a wooden floor and a comfortable bed, allowing you the comforts but at a lesser cost than a lodge safari would charge. Some camping safari include doing your own cooking while others include a chef.
Great life long friendships can be made on a camping safari, especially when sipping a sundowner in the late afternoon around the comfort of a camp fire. Not only comradeship but the experience of hearing the sounds of animals late at night, star gazing the clear African skies and the knowledge that the professional guide will protect you, makes a camping safari a risk worth taking.
Glamping, luxury camping or eco- lodges, luxury tented lodges are all upmarket versions of the traditional camping safari. It is possible to travel through Africa in style on a luxury camping safari. There are many beautiful options to choose from all with the modern conveniences and luxuries that you imagine. Here is an example; Ol Seki Mara Camp – Maasai Mara, Kenya
Not all camping safaris mean that you don’t wash for a week and have to wear the same clothes every day. You can in fact be very pampered on a camping safari for instance try a bush bath on luxury camping safari. Soak to your hearts content in one of the most beautiful bathrooms in the world – the African wilderness!
