3 Day Camping Safaris
Our camping safaris are designed to show off the best Africa has to offer at a more affordable price while allowing you the unique opportunity to stay within the National Parks.
This tour option provides you with a unique adventure experience where you can get close to nature. After a day’s game drive you will be greeted at the campsite with refreshment drinks. At night our local African cooks will delight you with a beautifully prepared dinner made with local, fresh produce. After enjoying your meal you can retire to the campfire where you will have the unique opportunity to watch and listen to the nocturnal sounds of the African night. As you can see, our budget camping safaris really are the best way to get up close and personal with East Africa.
These tours are fully serviced safaris where the guides and support staff put up the tents and strike the camp, taking care of every detail so that you can simply relax and enjoy yourself under the stars.

Lake Magadi is a saline lake found on the Crater floor. The saline waters of this lake attract both lesser and greater flamingos, with flocks of several thousand forming when the lake is low. Other bird species that inhabit the Crater floor are ostrich and the Kori bustard, the world’s heaviest flying bird. It may also be possible to spot cheetah, who are nomadic and move in and out of the Crater.
