This combination of camps and game areas is our favorite way to experience the magic of Africa – sleeping under canvas! But don’t worry… we don’t consider this “roughing it.” Accommodation is in luxury tented camps that allow you to get up close and personal with the surrounding African wildlife. Light aircraft flights between the areas allow you to maximize your time and provide an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful amenities of the highly-respected and unique tented camps.
