Luxurious Camps

Your accommodation in a luxury safari camp will be a palatial canvas suite, complete with en suite bathroom, elegant furnishing and a spacious private deck.  It is far, far more luxurious than you would dream a “tent” could ever be. Yet, because it is made of canvas, the suite stays warm in cool weather and breathes in hot weather.  It zips up all around so is completely insect proof and secure.  Because it is made of canvas it gives that sense of being out in the wilds on a real adventure, without compromising your comfort.

Botswana has some of Africa’s finest luxury camps; each situated on an enormous private reserve.  Sandibe Camp in the Okavango offers some of Botswana’s most exciting game viewing in idyllic scenery, where sparkling waterways thread their way through grassy plains and woodland.  You return from a thrilling drive, walk or boat ride among the elephant and leopard to relax on the private deck of your tented suite.  Then share a delicious lunch of cold meat, salads, maybe an imaginative pasta dish and dessert before a snooze or a dip in the pool. 

Calvin and Louise Cottar run Cottar’s Camp in the Masai Mara.  Like Sandibe, it’s on a huge private reserve; the perfect base to witness the Great Migration in August and September, and a wealth of wildlife all year round. Sweeping swathes of pure white canvas, old leather and crystal glasses give this place panache and personality.  The views of the endless Mara plains below are pure Africa.

Your tailormade safari might include three or four such places - each in a different beautiful location, each with its own style and character. At Africa Exclusive we know all the finest tented camps. Contact us now to begin planning your perfect safari.

Chiawa Camp - Zambia

Chiawa Camp consists of nine superior tented suites, each set on its own split level elevated timber platform each either with panoramic views of the wide, slow moving Zambezi River or the dry riverbed that feeds down to the Zambezi and where animals are regularly seen. The tents are insect proof and have twin or super king size beds, luxurious furnishings and 24hr electricity and complimentary wifi, which to maintain the peace in camp can only be used in the privacy of guest rooms. The magnificent en suite bathrooms which include an indoor and outdoor shower and wc are partially open to the river which can be seen from the comfort of the beautiful ball and claw Victorian bath.

Mara Plains Camp - Kenya

Mara Plains Camp is very intimate with just seven octagonal tented rooms raised on stilts and each has its own private veranda. The rooms are open at the sides during the day with large king-size beds, comfortable furniture and en suite bathroom with double vanity, flush toilets and a shower with continual hot water. The camp is centred around three huge open-air marquis style tents connected together. There are two lounges with a small library and writing area and a main dining room that can be utilised when not dining under the stars. The décor is rich in browns encouraging a relaxing break from the day’s activities. The central area is raised on decking and blessed with extraordinary views. The camp is run with a good sense of style and the standard of food and service is excellent.

Singita Sabora Plains Tented Camp - Tanzania

Situated within a huge private concession area which borders the western corridor of the Serengeti, Singita Sabora Plains Tented Camp enjoys excellent year round game viewing. Offering amongst the finest tented accommodation in Tanzania, Sabora Plains has just nine lavish tents which are air conditioned and decorated in the old ‘campaign’ style of the great safaris which took place in the 1920’s.

Ruckomechi Camp - Zimbabwe

Ruckomechi Camp is situated at the western reaches of the Zambezi floodplains, within Mana Pools National Park. It is sheltered by a huge stand of acacia and mahogany and it looks across the river to the massive escarpment of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, over 2000 feet high. Behind the camp stretch the floodplains and ancient forests, and it is this combination of river and mountain, forest and floodplain that sets Ruckomechi apart.

Every day brought new adventures and we learnt so much about every aspect of Kenya, its people and the wildlife. Within 24 hours of leaving home we were sitting overlooking Samburu, eating a bush picnic lunch while watching elephants and getting to know our two Samburu guides. How amazing is that?!

Africa Exclusive provided me and my family with an unforgettable, life changing adventure. It was an ethical and authentic African experience and the treatment and service was first class. We felt like participants rather than merely tourists. Amazing.

We got back home yesterday after the most fantastic trip to Botswana that one could imagine.  Everything worked well and the various organisations looking after us were extremely efficient so that our travel and accommodation arrangements could not have been better organised – and the people of Botswana are lovely.  For us it really was the holiday of a lifetime.  Worth every penny.
