Whether you’re in a fixed camp, luxurious lodge or are fly camping, you can experience remote locations and feel the spirit of adventure pulsing in your veins.

Experience The Traditional Authenticity Of An African Safari

There’s something almost spiritual about the sight of a tent pitched in the wilderness, the embers of a campfire glowing as one by one, diamond-like stars prick through the velvety blanket of the night. Waking up in the morning at first light is no less humbling, as the sun breaks across the horizon, warming the landscape with its rays. Really, there’s no finer way to experience Africa’s wild places.

Journeysmiths’ selection of safari camps have been chosen because they strike the perfect balance between an authentic wilderness experience and the creature comforts you’d expect of a high end hotel. Whether you prefer simpler canvas construction, a thatched cottage or an extravagant suite with a private pool is up to you. Our skill lies in creating the right combination of places and impeccable arrangements which combine to create your perfect holiday.

To call these palatial suites tents is really to do them a disservice. Yes, their walls can be made of canvas, but more often than not they are raised up from the ground on wooden platforms, have king size beds and campaign furniture, and are decorated with hand woven rugs, fine fabrics, and objets d’art. Fret not about the prospect of a bucket toilet: your en suite bathroom is far more likely to have a free-standing vintage bath, an outdoor rain shower, a fluffy bathrobe, and organic toiletries.
