Nature Discovery’s mobile camping safari is perfect for those who want to get even closer to the spectacular wilderness while on safari in TanzaniaOur mobile camping safaris offer the greatest flexibility for positioning close to the seasonal concentrations of wildlife and for getting way off the beaten track for an authentic adventure.

Being in an exclusive-use campsite allows you to experience the African bush in a ‘no compromise’ fashion, catered to your specific needs and desires. This exclusivity is the ultimate way to experience a safari.

Nature Discovery offers two types of camping accommodation to our safari guests: Classic Camping Safaris and Dome Tent Camping Safaris.

Classic Camping Safaris

Sleeping Tent Setup

Sleeping Tent Setup

Our classic Camp can be set up inside or outside the National Parks. The sites are in the wilderness, have no facilities and we provide the sleeping tents with toilets and showers, a dining tent, and the campfire of course! Outside the parks, we offer a number of private campsites exclusively for our guests. which dot the map from Longido to Lake Natron, and around the Serengeti.

Our camp crew sets up the camp prior to your arrival and breaks it down again after you depart – leaving no trace you were there. We provide our expert bush chefs to prepare and cook all the meals. We use specially procured eco-friendly charcoal for the camp, and our guests will attest that our cooks can prepare gourmet meals despite the basic amenities of their bush kitchens. We also use eco-friendly water heaters for hot showers using just a few bio-briquettes (an alternative to charcoal made from coconut husk waste), then adding grasses and twigs as kindling. We feel strongly about running our camping safaris with concern for the environment – being part of the solution, instead of part of the problem.

Amenities include:

  • 4m x 3m insect-proof nylon classic style safari tent with a fly sheet and 4m x 1.5m verandah
  • En suite portable flush-style toilet and bucket shower that is filled with hot water on request
  • Lighting by solar-charged LED lights and each tent has a veranda light, bedside lights, and a light in the en-suite toilet
  • Comfortable twin size single or full-size double safari beds with thick mattresses, comfortable pillows and quality bedding provided
  • Veranda with table and two chairs for relaxing and taking in the view
  • Bath towels are also provided

Meals are taken in our dining tent; a specially designed structure made of canvas and netting-mesh to let in the air and sights while keeping out any unwanted insects. We provide dining tables and chairs and lighting is by solar lanterns. If the weather is suitable dining al fresco is recommended. Our chefs are well trained and we cater for all dietary restrictions and preferences and we serve 3 sumptuous meals per day.

We provide tea and French press coffee, unlimited drinking water and you are welcome to purchase your own soft drinks, beer and wine which can be kept cold in the vehicle fridges during the day, and in a cooler box at camp.

Sundowners around the fire-pit with only the noise of birds and frogs and maybe larger animals in the distance is a memory you will treasure forever.

Best Responsible Guide Company

We had a fantastic safari with Japhet (we did three safaris with him). He is a perfect guide with an excellent eye to spot animals and who takes all the time to wait for something special. In 12 days in Serengeti and Ngorongoro we saw one female cheetah with her cub trying to chase two times a gazelle; one female leopard playing with her cub, one lionness catching a zebra; more leopards in the trees with their kill…..We recommend strongly this agency for the safaris.

Dome Tent Camping Safaris

Dome Tent Camping

Dome Tent Camping

Our Dome Tent Camping is either in public campsites or private campsites and can be set up inside or outside the National Parks. Although public campsites will have shared ablutions, kitchens and dining areas, the private sites are in the wilderness, have no facilities and we provide the sleeping tents with toilets and showers, a dining tent, and the campfire of course! Outside the parks, we offer a number of campsites for our guests which dot the map from Longido to Lake Natron, Manyara and around the Serengeti.

All private dome tent camping trips will take a supply vehicle along with whom the chef will travel, but if you prefer a more budget trip, the public dome camping trips for 2 guests will carry all their gear in their safari vehicle with the chef. Groups larger than 2 will need a supply vehicle and the number of chefs also increases with the number of guests.

Our camp crew sets up the camp prior to your arrival and breaks it down again after you depart, leaving no trace you were there. We provide our expert bush chefs to prepare and cook all the meals. We use specially procured eco-friendly charcoal for the camp, and our guests will attest that our cooks can prepare gourmet meals despite the basic amenities of their bush kitchens.

We feel strongly about running our camping safaris with concern for the environment – being part of the solution, instead of part of the problem.

We use dome camping tents that allow maximum flexibility, including being carried by donkeys on our donkey treks, and being equally suitable in the cold mornings at the high-altitude Empakai Crater rim as they are in the heat of Lake Natron. They are totally waterproof and designed to keep out insects, yet let air and breezes in when the temperatures are warm.
