Budget safari is the most popular safari in Tanzania Northern Safari Circuit which includes the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and the National Parks of Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Arusha and Mt. Kilimanjaro. In all of Africa, nowhere else provides the sheer numbers and varieties of games or the ease with which they can be viewed. Each park has its own distinctive habitats and their proximity to each other allows for a satisfying safari experience in a relatively short period of time.
A camping safari can range from a budget tour where you are expected to pitch your own tent and help with the cooking to the luxurious with a private campsite, walk-in canvas tents with cots, uniformed waiters, and portable shower and toilet facilities. However, most visitors utilize a full-service camping safari where regular park campsites and facilities are used and a driver/guide and cook are responsible for all camp chores. Tour operators are generally flexible and are willing to customize your safari to allow for your special interests or requirements. If a week is too long for you to go without a shower, you may want to request a night in a permanent tented lodge that has an ensuite bathroom with hot water and flush toilets. A safari is always an adventure of a lifetime but a camping safari authenticates the experience and satisfies one’s fantasies of the romance of a bygone era.
