Bush camping gives you totally freedom and flexibility to do what you want - start gamedrives as early as possible in the morning, stay at a sighting as long as you want, to get better photos, maybe a hunt. Get out on the afternoon game drive, when you want. Quite often I am alone at a sighting, which have given me a lot of special moments and fantastic photos. I always go on safari alone or with a few people, which gives us a private experience. We camp at special ampsites, with no other people around, and enjoy the wilderness feeling, sitting around the campfire, listening to the sounds of Africa. Quite often we have wildlife visiting camp at night, elephants, hippo, hyena, lion, ect, but we always feel safe. Food is simple but good, cooked by Otto.

Lodge can be good as well, but you are not alone, other guests, more noise, and if on a budget, you stay outside gates of game reserves/national parks. Which gives you a lot of waist time, entering the gate, long drive to the most productive areas. With bush camping you are in the middle of the action - sometimes around camp.

Mobile camping isn’t for everyone, but those of us who enjoy being as close to the wilderness as possible without compromising on creature comforts, these expeditions are definitely ideal. The combination of being so close to nature all the time, the camaraderie of guests and crew, and the fun of living in a tent just cannot be beaten!
