For most people the idea of spending the night under canvas surrounded by the sounds of the African bush brings to mind the romance of a bygone age of adventure.
Fortunately, there are many tented safari lodges in South Africa’s private game reserves where it is possible to recapture this magic.
it’s still a long way from most people’s idea of roughing it!
Tented safaris were initiated in Kenya around the 1920s and ’30s but the concept has now spread to cover most of Africa’s wildlife areas. Camp is usually established for two to four days in each ecosystem and guests stay in upmarket lodges while it is relocated.
