8-Day Camping Safari : Best of Tanzania


Falling asleep to the hooting of an owl or waking up to the roar of a lion is what you will experience in this tour! Sure, there are a number of luxury lodges in and around these national parks, but what’s the point of going into the wild, if you’re not going to experience nature at its beautiful best. And who said camping safaris can’t be luxurious. We offer the perfect combination to nature lovers and to those looking for a break from civilization. We let you enjoy camping at its best and ensure that you actually get to live in the wild and let all your dreams come true.

This tour is designed to not only provide you with an exceptional opportunity to encounter the Big 5, but also to position you in the perfect spot to experience the Great Migration, where nearly 1.5 million Wildebeest and nearly half a million Zebra make their endless migration in search of fresh pastures. The camps have been carefully selected to provide the best location to experience the migration while providing excellent value for your money.
