Basic camping

For a rustic experience, you can stay at a basic campsite. Basic camping safaris use medium sized (almost standing height inside) canvas tents with mosquito netting and sleeping bags.

Campgrounds have buildings with flush toilets and hot showers. In many cases they have an open restaurant building where you dine and where there is sometimes evening entertainment. Often drinks are sold or even souvenirs. On walking safaris however, some campsites have limited facilities and bottled water must be purchased beforehand.
