Ideal for those for whom the wildlife safari experience is more important than the accommodation, budget safaris are designed to offer the same high quality wildlife safari experience as provided by the top-end safari camps, but at a hugely reduced price by staying in small basic adventure camps (“real camping”). At each safari camp site you have service staff who do all the work associated with camping, like washing up, heating water for showers, doing the cooking and serving the food. Each tent has its own private bathroom in a cubicle located behind the tent with flush toilet, wash basin and safari shower. An experienced safari cook is at the camp to prepare the daily meals. The camp is hosted by the safari guide.
