What is Tanzania Camping Safari.

A Tanzania Camping Safari is a unique and immersive wildlife experience that allows adventurers to connect intimately with the natural beauty of Tanzania. This type of safari involves staying in tented accommodations within or near national parks and reserves, providing a closer and more authentic encounter with the African wilderness. Meals will be prepared by a private cook who will also be responsible for pitching your tents, so this is a stress-free safari where you don’t need to think about what to eat, where to sleep, and so on, everything will be taken care of. Participants can expect game drives to observe diverse wildlife, including the iconic Big Five, while enjoying the simplicity and adventure of camping under the vast African sky. The experience offers a blend of outdoor living, nature exploration, and wildlife observation, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a more intimate and adventurous safari encounter in Tanzania.


Camping safaris are more popular in Northern Tanzania, which encompasses Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Parks, as well as Arusha and Kilimanjaro National Parks. In the Southern circuit, we offer Nyerere National Park, Mikumi National Park, Ruaha National Park, and Udzungwa Mountain National Park.
