Under the Night Sky: Basic Camping
A common and economic accommodation choice, camping is also much more, as your wildlife experience continues into the night. Many public campsites, run by the Tanzania Association of National Parks, or TANAPA, are based within national parks, allowing you to listen as the parks come alive with nocturnal creatures. There are also several privately-run camps based outside the parks. Our basic camping package includes:
- Three meals per day prepared by your safari chef | 1.5l drinking water per day | cooler box
- Tent | mattress | pillows
- Sleeping bag | camping lanterns | table and chairs
All the camping equipment accompanies you on your safari and each night camp is set up for you by your crew. Your chef will prepare a full, fresh and varied menu that will cater for all dietary requirements. Dining areas are provided at campsites, and these provide a great atmosphere where you will meet many other like-minded safari goers to share stories and highlights of your adventure. Facilities are shared and in the peak seasons, the campsites can be very full. It is best to be early to the showers and to remember ear plugs. When we are camping in the bush, away from campsites, we provide all equipment needed to give you a comfortable camping experience. For an additional cost we can provide camp cots/beds.
Safari Style: Permanent Tented Camps
A classic safari camp fitting for the likes of Hemingway, Roosevelt, Karen Blixen and other famous safari goers. This type of tented accommodation is generally available all year round depending on the location, with some camps closing for the rainy season that falls in April and May.
The standards of a permanent tented camps can vary considerably both in design, finishing and price. Mid-range permanent tented camps fit into a 3 star to 3+ star categories. The tents are usually 6 meters long and about 3.5 to 4 meters wide with a veranda and furnished with a bed and fresh linen. Shower and toilets facilities are usually a separate compartment adjoined to the main tent.
Top-range permanent tented camps tend to be lower volume camps with 12 and under tents available. The higher standards of the sleeping tents and dining areas is definitely noticeable and staff are more attentive to a guest needs. Luxury high-range permanent tented camps have a 5 star rating. With only a handful of tents at most sites, and a maximum 16 people on one night the service is superb and expect no less than silver service with highly-trained staff.
Safari style: Lodges
For those wanting a hotel type experience, there a number of lodges available with top range and luxury lodges predominantly located in the National Parks. There are some very beautiful lodges carefully designed to fit within the surrounding environment in some of the most impressive locations.
Safari costs are largely dependent upon the type of accommodation and experience you choose. We have listed approximate price ranges, though these can vary depending on which parks are visited and how many are traveling in a group.
New park fees for Ngorongoro Crater and new Govt tax regulations on park fees have affected safari prices. These took effect on 1 July 2016.
