Luxury mobile camping is all that it implies — a tented safari carried out in the same style as a traditional Hemingway safari, except the shooting is done with a camera.
Tents are large, comfortable, and insect proof. Each has a veranda in front, twin-size beds and mattresses, sheets and blankets, as well as Persian rugs, solar lighting, chairs, and wardrobe for your clothing. Attached directly behind is a bathroom with shower, toilet and changing area. Its proximity eliminates any concern over what might be between you and the bathroom in the middle of the night!
Delicious multi-course meals are prepared in camp by our safari chef and served in a spacious, insect-proof dining tent, or under the stars.
The menus, meticulously prepared in advance, include a variety of meats, fish and fowl, plus plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Bread is baked daily in camp. A refrigerator and deep freeze keep food fresh, and ice is plentiful. A new supply of vegetables and fruits is brought in mid-safari. Vegetarian needs and special dietary requirements are easily accommodated.
Your tent attendant will bring hot water for the shower at whatever time of day or evening you like, and he does your laundry daily.
The crew also includes porters to bring in firewood and spotters to find the more elusive game — in all, several more crew members than guests. When their jobs are done, the crew enjoy entertaining the guests, teaching them a bit of Swahili or fishing with the youngsters.
Invariably, they enjoy their work, and our guests enjoy getting to know them.
