Inspired by the vintage-style camps of early European explorers in Africa, modern mobile tented safaris offer guests a sense of nostalgic adventure combined with the luxury and comfort of five-star hospitality. Canvas tents, mosquito nets, campaign furniture, hurricane lamps and Arabian rugs define the classic camp decor at most of these camps, all of which is able to be easily transported across the wilderness in order to follow migrating wildlife or the ever-changing seasons. The intimacy of mobile camps also provides much greater exclusivity than large safari lodges allow, giving guests added privacy and space.
Perhaps the best thing about mobile camps however is how close guests feel to the bush. Waking up to the smell of the fire, listening to the rain against the sides of the tent, the sound of lions calling in the distance as you go to sleep at night… it is an experience that awakens all of your senses as you get up close and personal with nature.
