A Night Under the African Sky
One of the seductive auras of an African safari is the breathtaking lodges that safarists temporarily call home. But imagine for a moment having the ability to wander from this comfort. Imagine yourself sitting in the open bush before a warm fire near sundown. As the sun wanes, roaring lions can be heard in the distance, joined by whooping hyenas and barking zebras. You look up and observe a starlit sky that belongs solely to Africa. And yet more…you spend the night under this sky – immersed within the mysterious and intriguing world of Africa at night.
Welcome to fly camping.The term simply refers to safarists camping in the bush in a simple remote camp located some distance from a main safari camp. Fly camping can easily be added as a separate option or extension to any Tanzanian safari. Locations such as Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve or Ruaha National Park are excellent destinations to experience a night under the African sky.
A Special Kind of Experience
Fly camping truly is a special kind of experience. You’re placed directly in the middle of Africa’s pristine wilderness. You’re surrounded by the wild. The sounds of Africa’s night heighten senses and fuel curiosity. The African sky offers a blanket of intrigue and wonderment.
And there’s more. You’re not left to fend for your own while fly camping. Dinner is not spent nervously clutching an energy bar in one hand and a canteen in the other. Fly camping allows adventurists to enjoy an unforgettable overnight adventure filled with exceptional food, drinks by a warm campfire, comfortable accommodations and safety that is ensured via a ranger.
