Your Camping Safari
The campsites we use vary in their facilities, those outside of National Parks often have a bar and provide basic facilities including communal toilets, washing area and hot showers. At campsites meals are served outside using tables and chairs. In case of rain a shelter or mess tent are provided.

In National Parks there are two types of campsite:
 Special Campsites: these are just a clearing in the bush with no facilities - we bring everything to these camps including a mess tent, shower tent and toilet tent. These campsites are expensive and available on request only.

 Public Campsites: are used in our basic camping safaris and have basic facilities such as water, toilet, covered cooking / dining areas and maybe a shower. Camping safaris are accompanied by a driver / guide and a cook. Standard tents are used, these allow you to stand up inside and are fitted with nets.

Your Lodge Safari
'Standard' lodges generally provide hotel-style accommodation. Some lodges have swimming pools, all have bars, meals are served in restaurants. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and are sometimes air conditioned. During peak periods (Christmas-New Year, then June-September) it is difficult to guarantee places at any given lodge. When applying please state your chosen itinerary and we will do our best to book it but we may have to make a minor alteration which should not over-all affect your safari program or quality. Our lodge safaris are accompanied by a trained safari driver-guide and use 4 wheel drive vehicles such as Land Rovers or Land Cruisers fitted with roofs that can be opened for better game viewing.
