Bush Tip No.2

Hungry in the bush? Try the sausage bug, the male breeder of the safari ants, can be roasted to a nice crunch over the camp fire. Or the flying termites are rather nice fried with garlic, salt and oil

Camps

Mobile Camps

Where possible we use the traditional mobile tented camp or small semi permanent camps. These consist of large walk-in tents with en-suite attached in the rear. Hot water can be obtained throughout the day. Each tent has proper canvas beds and duvets with fresh linen. There is a bedside table with torch, reading lamps and candles, a small luggage rack, an extra blanket and storage shelves. Outside each tent, on the ‘verandah’, is a wash-stand with mirror.

There is a main dining tent where breakfast, lunch or brunch and a three-course dinner are served. These delicious meals are prepared on site with vegetables and fruit fresh. Each evening a campfire is lit just in front of the dining tent where guests gather for drinks before and after dinner and enjoy the beauty of an African night. Fine wines are served with dinner.

On our more serious walking safaris we use very light weight mobile camps, with all the home comforts of a large camp.

Camps are always located in the most scenically spectacular locations as close as possible to the best wildlife concentrations, with the lowest impact on the environment.

Permanent Camps

We choice our permanent camps with great care. They should offer you all the comforts you need, but still blend in and be a low impact on the natural environment. They should also be placed in the best possible location for wild life viewing.

Lodges

We use several stunning lodges to compliment nights under canvas to give you a varied safari experience.

We only choose lodges in the best locations that not only offer the greatest comfort and service, but also blend in well with the natural environment.
