Part participation Safari - What is this?

This is a “part participation safari”, you are only required to pitch and fold down your own tent. All cooking, cleaning and any other camp chores will be taken care of by the safari camp-hands, made up of an experienced safari guide and a camp assistant.

This safari does not include your drinks which will need to be purchased before you leave. We will help you with this.

Our tents are 2.1m x 2.1m x 1.75m high, easy-to-erect bow tents, which have treated mosquito mesh covering all the windows and doors.

We provide 5cm high-density foam camping mattresses for each guest. You will need to provide your own sleeping bag. However, you can hire one from Safari Lifestyles (EUR 20 for the duration of the safari).

Our bush ablutions consist of high-slung bucket showers and bush toilets with private canvas screens. These ablutions are on a shared basis.
