Budget Tanzania Camping Safaris

Budget Tanzania camping safaris are among the most popular options for visitors who want to explore Tanzania’s many game parks and conservation areas. The safaris embark on the same circuit of national parks and game reserves as other more expensive companies, and guests get to feel like they’re experiencing an ‘on the ground’ adventure by camping in beautiful locales. Camping safaris are a rewarding experience because visitors feel like they’re ‘roughing it’ and participating in a real African adventure, but still have all the benefits and comforts of safari drivers, guides, and a cook to take care of all their needs.

Tanzania Budget camping safaris were originally organized for hunting fraternity and we have adapted this style of safari to cater for people whose interest is in watching or photographing Africa’s Wildlife, scenery and people.

Budget Camping in the bush of Tanzania is the quintessential African Safari experience. Just a piece of cloth between you and the African night.
