6 DAYS GLAMPING SAFARI
Some travellers prefer experiencing the untamed and most exciting parts of the world without foregoing their home comfort or even more than what they are exposed to at home, so as to create a memorable experience.
This also comes up due to the strong desire of travellers to have exclusive experiences in the weirdest but unique environments, like having a dinner/BBQ feast, spending an overnight or even enjoying story telling by the bonfire while the night goes on in the wilderness, including star gazing.
By choosing this type of safari, the traveller would love to have access to first class amenities while in the wilderness, to include luxury tents, high class beds, 5*meals, entertainment gadgets, luxury safari vehicles and quality bathrooms.
