Hannington Speke, the celebrated 19th Century Explorer wrote, "In my camp
I feel the tempo, the pulse and the freedom that is Africa. To live in any other
way is to lose that intimate bond between myself and nature." A mobile tented
camp, set in the heart of the East African wilderness, will ensure that you are
still able to experience this mystical bond with nature in the 21st Century.
Mobile tented camps have changed little since Speke's time. Large, airy canvas
tents are still the accommodation of choice. Large bucket showers, filled with
hot water by your tent steward, have not altered since first invented; your meals
are still baked by the chefs in tin trunks. Old fashioned or not, there is little
room for improvement; this is not boy-scout camping but rather sheer luxury!
Your mobile camps are set up for you by well trained, attentive staff who go
out of their way to ensure your comfort is guaranteed. Your expert guides are
friendly, with fonts of useful information ("No sir, that chameleon is completely
harmless and will not bite you to death while you nap!"). They know the area,
the animals, the plants and the insects; they ensure that you are able to experience
the best each location has to offer.
"Have tent, will travel" is the motto of a mobile camp. Wherever you wish to
explore, whether the Serengeti, Masai Mara, Tsavo or the Aberdare Mountains, you
tented camp will follow, providing a relaxing, safe and thoroughly luxurious base
for your wilderness explorations.
