EXPERIENCESChoose the experience of a lifetime
Adventure camping requires participation. Your guide and assistant do all the meal preparation, however, we ask guests to help (on rotation) with the washing up. You will also need to assist with putting up your tent and packing the vehicle. There are some long travel days which means early morning starts, so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.
Our 3 to 4 star accommodated safaris and tours use a variety of value-for-money accommodation. Accommodation varies from chalets, bungalows, traditional huts, permanent tents and hotels, all with private en-suite facilities and comfortable beds to ensure you’re re-charged and ready to go for the following days adventure!
Fully Assisted Camping (non-ensuite) means you will not have to lift a finger as we take care of all camping chores: cooking, cleaning, pitching and packing tents. You have a 3-man crew of experienced safari staff (including a cook) who are dedicated to making your trip memorable and rewarding.
Fully Assisted Camping (en-suite) is the modern-day version of the ‘traditional’ safari - like the gentleman explorers Baker, Stanley and Baines. Today, the ox-wagons and bearers have been replaced with custom-made 4WD safari vehicles, a professional guide, chef, waiter and support crew.
Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain on the African continent, stands 330 kilometres south of the equator, on the northern boundary of Tanzania. Its location, on an open plain close to the Indian Ocean, and its great size and height strongly influence the climbing conditions.
Safari lodges are fully permanent accommodation built out of stone, wood, thatch, bricks, mortar or a combination of all. Tented Camps are generally considered the best for a true safari experience. All lodges and tented camps feature real beds and private, en-suite bathroom facilities.
We have a wide range of African safaris and tours with set departure dates to cater for guests wanting to travel in small groups. Your guide travels with you for the duration of the safari or tour, with the advantage of enjoying the company of a group of like-minded people for the whole safari, sharing an adventure that is often the basis for lasting friendships.
When it comes to a family holiday, an African safari is an incredibly rewarding and exciting experience. As a company, we recommend your children are at least 10 years old, so that everyone can enjoy and get the most of of this amazing experience. Most family friendly camps/lodges have family tents/rooms, meaning you can all be under the same roof. Child rates are often applicable at these camps/lodges, but do depend on the age of your children.
Trekking through the African rainforest to see the majestic mountain gorillas in their natural habitat is one of the most breathtaking, mesmerizing, and unforgettable experiences one can have. With a population of just 880 individuals, mountain gorillas are one of the most endangered animals in the world.
