Enhance a safari with a night or two fly camping in the bush.

Established by early hunters and trackers, fly camping is a back to basics experience where guests sleep under the stars in wild surroundings. Tents are merely mosquito nets and camps are simple yet fully equipped with comfortable bed rolls, a short-drop loo and bucket shower with hot water.

Fly camping is a great way to get out and about in the bush, and can be done in both the Serengeti (from Serian) and in the Selous (from Sand Rivers Selous). Guests either set off from the camps in a 4 x 4 or can walk to the fly camping spot, which enables guests to learn all about animal tracks and the medicinal properties of the indigenous plant life en route. On arrival at the camp, guests are rewarded with a hot bucket shower and a three-course supper laid out in the bush.
