Types of Africa Safari Camps
Tented Safari Camps & Safari Lodges
The level of accommodation is a major factor in the price of your African safari, with the other main factor being the strategic location that the camp offers. Location is paramount in our safari planning, as we strive to get you in the right place at the right time of year for the wildlife you want to see.
What is a Tented Safari?
Advantages of Tented Safari Camps
In many cases, you may also have the opportunity for additional adventure opportunities. As an example, some of the private concessions adjacent to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya offer night drives. These after sunset game drives offer an outstanding opportunity to view wildlife behavior in a way that many safari goers never get the chance to experience.
Not Exactly Roughing It
The tented camp categories are further classified below.
Permanent Tented Camp
This allows guests who stay at one of these seasonal tented camps to have easy access to game viewing which is just a short drive away. Note that an ideally situated camp will be relatively close to water which generally provides great access to a variety of African wildlife species like elephant, giraffe, lions and more (not just wildebeest and zebra).
