Beginners Guide to Camping Safaris - Tents, Meals and Campfire

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012
  • Google+

Camping safaris can be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences you ever have, but only if you’re properly prepared with the right knowledge and the right gear, especially when you're venturing off on safaris in Africa. Watch this quick YouTube video about camping safari tips for beginners and get clued-up in a jiffy. Alternatively, just read the great camping tips below.

 

The Tent on Camping Safaris

First and foremost, you need a tent for camping safaris. The number of people you’ll have sleeping in your tent will determine the size of the tent you need. Rule of thumb: always get a tent that will sleep two more people than you intend to have. If you’re a family of four, get a six man tent. Why? You’ll need the extra room to store your duffle bags, backpacks, shoes, boots and other gear. It’s also nice, but not necessary, to have a tent you can stand up in. It makes getting in and out a little easier, as well as getting dressed and undressed. You’ll want to set your tent up on level ground, it is very uncomfortable to pitch your tent on uneven or slanted terrain. You'll need all the sleep you can get on safaris in Africa, with days filled with hiking, game viewing, dilated pupils and adventure.

Meal Planning on Camping Safaris

Okay, so you’ve made it to the campground. The tent is up, the gear is in. Well, you could take a break. I mean, you worked hard! You deserve it! Crack open a cold one and relax. Okay, enough relaxation, time to plan your meals. If you’re going camping with a group of people, then you’ve got some meal planning to do. How many people are you going to feed, and how often? Perhaps each person, or family can be responsible for one meal, or one day of meals for the entire group. Talk to each other beforehand. Good meal planning can prevent waste, and starvation. As far as what food to bring, well, whatever you normally eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is what you’ll bring. If you're going on an overland trip with fellow passengers, your overland guide is a great source of help for what food you should prepare for an overland truck full of hungry bellies, if it's your turn to cook.

Campfire Building on Camping Safaris

Okay, now you want to get some kindling. Kindling? Small pieces of wood that will burn quickly in order to get the fire started. Go out and gather some small branches. Pick them up off the ground in the area surrounding your campsite. On a camping safari, you don't want to venture off into the bush without a guide on a safari in Africa. There are wild animals out there. Also, cutting branches off trees is a no-no. Green wood won’t burn anyway. If you bought a bag of firewood, there should be some narrowly cut wood in there. Use that. Firstly, take some newspaper, or any other paper, for that matter, scrunch it up in a ball, and place it in the middle of the fire ring. Now you are going to build a little teepee around it. Use the kindling first, then surround it with larger logs. Now you’re just about ready for ignition. Light the paper in the middle, which in turn will burn the kindling, which in turn will burn the logs. All right, you’re not going to have a real flamer in 10 seconds, it is going to take a little work: you may have to re-light it a few times, blow on the embers, stoke it a bit, but eventually you will succeed.

Camping safaris can be greatly enjoyable with a little help from great YouTube video resources, as well as your overland guide if you're venturing out on safaris in Africa.

Meals on an Overland Trip: Good Camping Food!

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011
  • Google+

You’ve booked your place on the overland truck and received your itinerary. Now what’s on the menu for the camping trip? How about you tell us! Not only is an overland trip about lugging your backpack and body weight across Africa, but it’s also about learning to cook for a truck full of fellow hungry explorers. That’s right, you and your fellow overland truck passengers will be each other’s Gordon Ramsey’s, Nigella’s and Dr Seuss’s for the duration of your overland trip. Some overland trips offer professional safari cooks who are hired to feed you, but where’s the fun in that?

Meals Banner

Cooking for the group is not some kind of military enforced rule to prepare average citizens for survival situations where rations are involved; it’s actually a lot of fun. Being in a cooking team of roughly two to three members, depending on the overall group size, everyone gets a chance to cook meals, wash up and do the grocery shopping. After you’re put into a cooking team, your team is given a shopping list, wad of money and a nudge in the right direction to the nearest store to go and buy supplies. If you’re worried about buying the wrong quantity of food, or need someone to restrain you from running off and buying a Ferrari, disco ball and other useless items you won’t need on an overland trip, the guides are always more than happy to accompany you and lend their expertise.

When you arrive at the overnight camping spot, there will be a designated area for making a campfire. It’s not a very good idea to mission off on your own and find a pile of dry wood in the middle of the grass to start your cooking fire on. Chances are that in less than 24 hours you would have successfully burnt your meal of bakes beans and toast… as well as flash braai’d the surrounding big five that were innocently meandering their stretch of homeland. Not cool. If you’re worried about your Master Chef abilities, ask your guide for easy camping recipes and tips. We wouldn’t want to have a repeat of the incident where an ‘innovative’ first-time overlander decided to boil vegetables... INSIDE the kettle. That incident reminds me of a similar event which involved a kettle’s freshly boiled water being introduced to packet sauce… INSIDE the kettle.

If you think getting dog turd off a carpet is difficult, you don’t want to try get Knorr’s double thick cheese sauce out of the inner workings of a kettle. Three generous square meals are prepared every day, leaving you to waddle off once you’ve cleared your plate. There is more than enough food to keep you satisfied. Just because you’re missioning through Africa doesn’t mean you have to be fed like you’re a contestant on Survivor. In fact, 9 times out of 10 you put on weight while on an overland trip. There. Is. Enough. Food.

Overland Cooking

Three meals a day of good camping food include: Camping Breakfasts Toast, spreads, yoghurt, cereals and fruit for on-the-move mornings and not-on-the-move mornings it could be time for a good fry-up. Camping Lunch Cold meats, salads and sandwiches make for easy meals for camping. Camping Dinner A selection of casseroles, lasagnas, stews, roasts and grills with a compliment of salads and vegetables. So don’t worry, on an overland trip, we won’t let you go hungry, and most of the time, the food is delicious. On the bright side, whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger!

Camping vs Accommodated: The Overland Experience

Monday, June 6th, 2011
  • Google+

We understand that camping isn’t for everyone. The thought of nothing but millimetre thin canvas between you and the elements doesn’t quite strike everyone’s fancy: we get it. For this reason, we’ve made sure that there is also an ‘accommodated’ option to pair with your yearning for an overland adventure.

Camping

The camping option offers a traveller the fully blown ‘roughing-it ’experience. It’s as simple as: 1. Find a flat-ish piece of land. 2. Pitch your tent. 3. Unroll your mattress. Easily the most important item to pack on your overland trip; your sleeping bag is something you don’t want to find yourself without in the middle of Africa.

camp1

Accommodated

The accommodated option offers a traveller a twin room, unless a single room is requested. There are certain locations where dorms are used and ablution facilities are usually communal.

You’ll still need to pack your bag as if you were on a camping trip though.

Dorms

Being able to carry your luggage comfortably on your adventure will make the experience all the more enjoyable for everyone, so leave the clunky suitcase at home and sling on a backpack. Not sure what you should be packing? We have helpful packing guidelines. The accommodation preference makes no difference to the actual experience; the journey is still classified as an adventure trip. This means you’ll need to prepare for a journey where you can carry your own bag and dig your own hole in the ground (you never know when nature might call).

Whether you choose to rough-it in a tent or venture indoors for your shut eye, the spirit of overlanding remains the same: Awesome. Get more more information on our camping trips. Get more more information on our accommodated trips.
