3 OF THE BEST KENYA AND TANZANIA CAMPING SAFARIS WITH FREE ACTIVITIES ON SITE
Game drives, lion tracking, boat riding … those who prefer to keep busy will love a stay at these campsites with free activities on tap for children and adults.
From the grassy plains of the savannah to the cool Northern hills of Serengeti, here are our choices for the best and most beautiful places to camp in Kenya and Tanzania.
Mara Triangle, Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Setting: Grassy Plains
Activities: Free wildlife viewing, nature walks, game drives
Lions, spotted hyenas, cape buffalos, cheetahs, elephants, zebras … If you’re already reaching for the binoculars, this Masai Mara campsite, around 284km south of Nairobi, will not disappoint. At the confluence of the Talek and Mara rivers, below the dramatic, grassy plains, all these animals can be spied resting in the tall grasses near the campsite. If you’re more excited by vultures, secretary birds, hornbills, crowned cranes, long-crested eagles, and ostriches, then you’ll be in your element too, as it’s also the perfect site to watch birds – though there is competition from the aardwolves, African wildcats, and side-striped jackals, naturally.
Pitch from $30 per night.
Moru Kopjes, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Setting: Granite Outcrops
Activities: Black rhino spotting, low-cost game drives
A 4½-hour drive north of Serengeti is this spacious campsite, with several game routes just a turn of the spokes away. While its granite outcrops location means it’s perfect for black rhino spotting and low-cost game drives too, its emphasis is on getting close to wildlife and nature. Surrounded by Maasai village farms – where you can forage for local food – each pitch offers space and tranquillity, and there’s a communal bonfire.
Pitch from $25 per night.
Lake Nakuru, Kenya
Activities: Fishing, animal spotting, free birdwatching
Pitch up on one of the popular spots on the shores of Lake Nakuru - there are tilapia in nearby stretches for which you can fish with a permit. The owners deliver fresh produce each morning to your tent and encourage you to sit with a glass of red wine and watch the birds (Flamingos, African fish eagle, hamerkop, pied kingfisher, Verreaux's eagle, Goliath heron) and animals (warthogs, baboons, black rhinos, waterbuck, lions, cheetahs, leopards). But make time to explore the rest of the Lake Nakuru National Park too. By night, the stargazing is superb.
THE BENEFITS OF SMALL GROUP SAFARI TOURS KENYA
Both Kenya and Tanzania are a blessing for travelers seeking wildlife safari adventures at nominal costs.

Thus, there are so many reasons to go for a camping safari in Tanzania and Kenya.
1. SPECIAL INTIMACY WITH NATURE
You will never fall in love with nature if you keep locking up yourself in the cities. Nothing feels better than resting in absolute silence in the wilderness or near a waterhole for an hour or two just watching the creatures that fly and pass by and enjoying the warmth of the sun. Imagine viewing the proud African Big five mammals parading the endless wooded savannas.
2. NIGHT CAMPING EXPERIENCE
Do you have a deep passion for Africa? Sitting back waiting for stories from Africa travelers is not enough. Venture in the most affordable 12-day budget camping safari in Tanzania and Kenya to feel, smell and taste the tranquility of Africa bush-life. With dinner served under the big campfire and accommodations in tented rooms, everyone loves falling to sleep hearing the hyenas whooping and lions roaring and owls hooting.
You may probably choose not to sleep, but gaze at the stars all night, waiting for the morning light. Storytelling in complete darkness with the exception of the moonlit sky and the campfire blaze, giving you one of the most memorable nights in your lifetime. Guarded by a Maasai warrior, you will feel safe all night long. Mornings arrive punctuated with the chirping of birds breaking the eerie silence of the night. Is there any better way to enjoy a camping safari?
3. BUSH EXPERIENCE
If you truly have the desire to enjoy the camping adventures in Africa, you must immerse yourself in the wilderness to get the best ecotourism. From the tremendous Rift Valley landscape to the spellbinding wildlife encounters, the Big Five and great wildebeest migration.

WHEN TO GO CAMPING IN KENYA & TANZANIA
It will come as no surprise that the best time to go camping in Kenya and Tanzania — that is if you want the best weather to set up tents — is in the driest months of July, August, and September. However, because the weather is at its warmest, these are also the most popular months for campers and backpackers, as well.
Especially during the month of July in Masai Mara and Serengeti Ecosystem (due to the Great Wildebeest Migration), expect there to be a lot of camper crowds in more popular camping areas. However, there is a lot of Kenya and Tanzania that remains off of the typical tourist trail and these destinations are very much worth visiting for cheap camping rates. So, if you plan to go camping, it is probably in your best interest to get a bit off the beaten path to find better rates.
