8 Days Tanzania Ultimate Safari

The concept of mobile camping is the traditional East African safari. The guest experiences a close to nature safari which makes for a more exciting time all round. The Mobile tented camps are set up in private and exclusive campsites. The camping crew and equipment travel separately on a support vehicle ahead of the guests. When guests arrive at the campsite everything is prepared and waiting – tents up, meals cooking, and hot water ready for a wash. The walk-in accommodation tents are provided with two safari beds, blankets, bed sheets and pillows. Wash room facilities are set inside the guests’ tents, and not outside..
