Camping Equipment

The camping equipment we use on Tanzania camping safaris our camping equipment is of higher quality, frequently checked and tuned-up. You will only have to bring soaps and fragrant. You will be staying in public campsites, located inside the parks or on private campsites located on the outer edge. The campsites in the parks are not fenced we only pitch the tents on the camping grounds and usually you may see elephants roaming between the tents or the antelopes knocking on your way to the washrooms. The advantage of Tanzania camping Safaris is that, you will spend overnights inside the park so you will have full days for animal viewing, the parks are open from 06:00 am to 06:00 pm so the choices are yours time wise increasing the chances of seeing the big 5 where Elephants and buffaloes will be among the first animals to welcome you to the park on the first day of your visit while lions require no effort to find them, the Rhinos are residents inside the Ngorongoro crater making it possible to be seen while leopards can be seen in Serengeti being powered by our efforts to find them and a little bit of luck.

All of our camping Safaris are none driving mileage tours between the locations you will be visiting. Our safari cars are equipped with radio calls making it easy to locate the animals by getting in touch with our other safari drivers.

My guide, Henry, was perfect as well as all the crew. Food was perfect, there was enough of the water, tent was comfortable, all the team tried hard to make my trip comfortable.

This experience with Serengeti Joy Tours was nothing short of spectacular. Our team was made up of Frank(y) (primary guide), Francis (secondary guide), Shedrack (our chef, Moses (our waiter), and 10 solid porters who worked hard and were delightful to encounter. Frank was an awesome lead guide, always laughing and bringing humor into the mix, even when some times were tough (altitude sickness). He was adaptable and knew how to manage every situation. Both Franky and Francis were very

Angelica was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was attentive to our needs, highly flexible and easy to communicate with. The trip was very well planned especially given our time constraints. The 7 day lemosho hike was a success, reaching Uhuru Peak.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
