Tanzania Safari is perhaps the best way to immerse yourself completely into the natural and purest form of wildlife where they're left undisturbed on their own to grow and prosper in large protected areas. Most people think safaris come with a hefty price tag, but that depends primarily on what how you plan your trip. Private tours led by qualified experienced rangers charge more money than group tours. Food and accommodation costs vary drastically according to what type of service you choose. While luxury five-star hotels can cost north of couple of thousands of dollars, camping stays can be wrapped up within few hundred dollars or even less. Our Tented Camping Safaris are ideal for people considering African Safaris but on a tight budget.

Africa no doubt is used synonymously with wildlife. Tanzania which is the 13th largest country in Africa alone has 16 national parks and 38% of its land is reserved for protected areas. The Serengeti ecosystem present in Tanzania hosts the largest terrestrial migration of mammals in the world in which approximately 1.7 million wildebeests and zebras set out for fresh grazing lands every year covering areas of Tanzania. Besides that it is also home to thousands of predators like lions, hyenas, leopards, cheetahs, and other wild animals like giraffes, elephants, warthogs, elands, waterbucks et cetera. Tanzania Budget Camping Safaris give you the opportunity to spend the night among these predators and wild animals in the middle of Tanzania National Parks. Lakes and rivers are considered ideal for tenting location as many animals visit the stream at night for quenching their thirst. You can also camp under the diverse coastal beaches, mountain plains, foothills from where you'll see a new world altogether at the night time.
