Camping safari in Africa
A camping safari is filled with great excitement; especially when you stay in an unfenced camp, where the animals walk right pass your living space. Of course there are tight safety measures still in place in your respective game reserve – giving you complete peace of mind while you enjoy intimacy with the wild. Hear the roar of a lion close up when you are lying snug and safe in your tent; antelope grazing around your camp all through the night, the call of a jackal or the yelp of the hyenas. This is Africa at its absolute best! Camping also creates the interesting opportunity to interact with new faces from other groups camping within the same vicinity.
The Kruger National Park has a number of reputable campsites and with Journey into Africa arranging your booking, you can rest assured of an unforgettable camping experience and tour itinerary. Choose between the major camps such as Skukuza, Letaba or Lower Sabi or smaller ones such as Berg-en-Dal, Crocodile Bridge or Olifants for your camping safari.
The majority of camps have swimming pools nowadays and in the intense heat of summer it is a life saver; they also have shops where emergency items that you may have forgotten can be bought. Tsendze, one of the newer bush camps, translates as “rambling around like someone lost in the bush” is an interesting location for the “rugged camper” - you will find just the basics, but also enjoy the benefit of nature at your beck and call. For instance, you will find some of the most amazing bird species in the immediate camping area, not to mention other species of antelope and many more!
At the southern part of South Africa, closer to the ocean, your camping safari can take you to The Addo Elephant Park. As the name indicates, the park has a large population of these majestic and gentle animals; if you sit for long enough at a water hole, at some time or the other a large herd of elephant will come down to quench their thirst.
The magic of a camping safari in the Kgaladadi National Park is hard to describe to someone who has not been to the Kalahari before. You won’t find the Big Five here as you would in the Kruger, but the endless red dunes and the animals of this region will uniquely satisfy your need for the outdoors and camping.
