Adventure Camping – the authentic bush experience

On our adventure camping safaris you will experience a proper adventure in the bush, going back to basics and appreciating a break from the comforts of our modern world. These safaris are designed as participation safaris: you will assist your guide in pitching and taking down your tent, as well as help preparing meals and doing the dishes in the camp kitchen. What may sound like chores is part of the authentic camping safari experience.
