How do I choose
Most of my tours are camping accommodation, this is often the only way to visit an area. Lodges are generally very expensive and often not what you would expect.
In my travels I am constantly looking for new campsites or upgraded ones. Believe me, I am not looking to put you through any ordeal with a bad campsite. However they do exist, and I do use them. Africa does not always cater for camping and often it is the only accommodation available in an area.
Tents are so good and cheap these days that it is easy to find a good tent at a low price. The key to selecting a tent is how fast to set up and how fast to take down, how much space does it take to pack.
Awnings, and fancy stuff just makes it more complicated.
2.5m x 2.5m canvas dome ground tents are strong, cost effective and fast.
We only try and stay in good acceptable accomodation. Ie clean and affordable. They might not all live up to the 5 star super dooper level, but most of them do and even surpasses the expectation.
The good quality of lodges in Africa will actually surprise you.
If you feel like camping but do not have a tent, You may rent a 2.5 x 2.5 dome from me, send me a mail to check availability and prices.
We do our best to find campsites with good ablutions flush toilets and hot water. However sometimes this has to be weighed with the proximity to the areas we want to visit. It is pointless to sleep 200km from the action because there is hot water.
If a campsite has no shower, I will provide a bucket shower for the night. With 5 litres of hot water you can shower like a king…
