More up-market Safaris:

Being fully accommodated and inclusive of every aspect of the tour, all you will have to worry about is kicking back, relaxing and enjoying the endless highlights that each of our unique destinations have to offer.
Accommodation is split between lodges/hotels and when in national parks, tented safari camps, in which you will still experience the feeling of wild camping, but without having to worry about any of the camp duties (setting up tents, kitchen duties, etc)  that go along with it.
