Fly Camping 101
By Britta Foulis – Content Manager
Fly Camping is a safari activity that not many first-time safari-goers know, but those intrepid travellers who have undertaken a night of fly camping will tell you it would be a shame to pass up the chance.
What is Fly Camping?
If spending a night in the heart of Africa’s wildest places with nothing but a tent between you and nature sounds appealing, then fly camping is for you. Simply put, fly camping is essentially a walking safari with one night spent camping in the bush. While it’s an adventurous and memorable experience, you’ll by no means be roughing it to the full Bear Grylls-ian extent. You’ll be accompanied by a trained (and armed) guide, and most of the hard work will be done for you.
In fact, your camp will be set up and waiting for you after make your way through the untamed wild, your dinner will be cooking on an open fire at the hands of your personal chef, and there’s even a hot, authentic bucket shower ready and waiting for you.
After a meal, a shower, and some chatter around the campfire, you’ll retreat to your tent for the night. The sounds of Africa’s nocturnal species are all around, and you wouldn’t be the first guest to fight off sleep to stay up late listening to the calls and sounds of the animals.
