  • How easy is it to access and navigate around the Safari Style Base Camp?

    The Safari Style Base Camp is generally easy to access and navigate wherever the destination may be located. Camp is usually sited on level ground with all the facilities being placed within 10 metres from the central 'HAB'.

    Please note that the more wild and remote the programme is located (as per your pre-booking options and final choice) the more 'interesting' accessibility gets.

    All participants will be collected by us from the nearest airport or train station and transferred by road (or by boat) to the destination. Inward and Outbound travel must be organised by the participant or their agent.

    We provide proper toilets and hot showers on all programmes, however please remember we are an expedition class operation so we don't have a mains water supply or mains electric! Our facilities (male and female) provide personal privacy and are checked, cleaned and serviced by our staff several times a day.

  • What happens if the weather is bad whilst we are away?

    There are never any guarantees in the wilderness and weather conditions can be change very quickly so that's why we have invested heavily in high performance equipment which we know will withstand anything that the weather can throw at us. Whatever happens, It's all part of the experience.

  • What kind of clothing and footwear should i bring?

    A full kit list of what you need to bring on this trip will be provided once you have made your booking.
