Accommodation

During this safari, you will stay at hotels for six nights, a lodge for one night, and camps for 17 nights. Camping in Africa is a true adventure, giving you the opportunity to experience Africa’s wilderness and nature. You will stay at designated campsites in national parks and outside towns.

Campsite facilities in both Southern and East Africa are generally good but can be very basic in certain areas.

There are generally small restaurants and/or bars, washing facilities, and occasionally, telephone facilities. Almost all camps have flush toilets and hot water showers. There are some exceptions where simple reed enclosures might be your only privacy. Hot water is available at most sites but it is not guaranteed, depending on the number of guests at the campsite at that time.

Africa4Us will try to set up camp within close, proximity to ablution facilities, but you may have to walk a short distance. On the Premium Camping Adventure Tours, they will provide all camping equipment with the exception of your sleeping bag, sleeping sheet, and pillow. Equipment includes two-person dome tents.

Those are good quality, durable, and industry-standard safari canvas tents which can be assembled and disassembled within five minutes. Your tour leader will demonstrate to you how to assemble and disassemble the tent at the beginning of your tour. Most adults will not be able to fully stand up inside the tents, though most travelers find those more than adequate, as they have a base area of approximately four square meters.

The tents are regularly treated with a waterproofing agent but under certain rainy conditions, the tent fabric may become saturated to the point where seepage or leakage may occur. All tents have built-in mesh insect netting on the windows and doors. You will also be provided with camping mattresses. Another first for the industry, Africa4Us provides oversized camping mattresses.

You will get to choose between the super-duper memory foam side or the firmer high-rebound sponge side. Those are comfortable and approximately 10 centimeters thick. The equipment also comes with portable camp chairs with a comfortable backrest, and cooking equipment to provide the group with good quality camp meals. 

Solo travelers will be paired in twin or multi-share accommodation, depending on the style of your tour, with someone of the same sex for the duration of the tour. A solo person supplement is payable if you require single-occupancy rooms or tents and is available on a first come, first serve basis. Please note that in certain locations, single occupancy is not available due to the nature of the camp.

Furthermore, Africa4us Pty Ltd reserves the right to change or use similar accommodation. Accommodation is subject to availability. You will stay at the following accommodations on the respective nights of your safari.

A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people.

The mokoro is steered by a ‘’poler” standing at the back, manoeuvring the mokoro downstream with a pole, very much like the gondoliers in Venice. Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into the delta will begin. Gliding along on the quiet water, you will have an unlimited source of opportunities to take exquisite photos of your surroundings.
