Budget safari camping close to nature

Budget Camping Safaris in Tanzania

Looking for an adventurous way to explore Tanzania’s national parks?
Eco camping safaris offer a unique experience that gets you close to nature.
Here’s what you can expect:

The Experience
  • Accommodation:
    You’ll stay in shared dome tents with comfortable sleeping pads and pillows. Campsites will have basic washroom facilities.
  • Meals:
    A dedicated cook will prepare three meals a day, served at the campsite or picnic locations. While not as elaborate as meals at lodges, they are tasty and filling.
  • Locations:
    Campsites can be inside or outside the park boundaries. Inside-the-park locations offer a more immersive wilderness experience but may lack amenities like hot showers.
  • Your Guide and Cook:
    An experienced guide will lead your safari, while a dedicated cook ensures you’re well-fed throughout the trip.
  • Vehicle:
    Your safari vehicle will have charging ports to keep your cameras and phones powered.
Things to Consider
  • Suitability:
    Camping safaris are best for those comfortable with basic amenities and being close to nature. They might not be ideal for travelers seeking luxurious accommodations.
  • Luggage:
    Due to the extra camping gear, there’s less space in the vehicle compared to lodge-based safaris.
  • Rainy Season:
    Camping can be uncomfortable during heavy rains (March-May) as tents may get damp and campsites muddy.
Cost

Budget camping safaris are generally cheaper than lodge-based safaris, especially for longer itineraries that include Serengeti National Park.
However, for shorter trips or if you prefer staying inside park boundaries every night, the price difference might be smaller.

Basic camping safaris are a budget-friendly way to experience Tanzania’s wildlife in a rustic setting.
If you’re comfortable with basic amenities and enjoy being close to nature, this could be the perfect adventure for you.
