Kiboko’s Fully Serviced Camping Safaris invite guests to sit back, relax and take in the amazing scenery of Southern Africa while we take care of ALL your chores! Unlike the majority of Overland Touring companies that make guests work for their supper (cooking, cleaning, setting up camp), our fully serviced camping safaris are exactly that: fully serviced. You won’t have to lift a finger as we prepare your meals, secure your tent and make sure we don’t leave a mess. Our fully serviced camping safaris are specially designed for seasoned (40+) travelers who want an overlanding adventure in the wild without the hassles of setting up camp after a long day on the road. Kiboko camping groups are kept relatively small (up to 16 participants) with a wide range of nationalities and adventurous (40+) travelers. Fully Serviced Camping Safaris are aimed at active individuals looking for an unforgettable holiday.
Single travelers are always welcome. Should you want your own tent, you will be charged a single supplement rate or we can pair you with a like-minded traveler of the same gender. One month before departure if there is nobody to share with then you will have to pay the single supplement.
Our staff are famous for their fresh corn and beer bread
All meals on our Fully Serviced Camping Safaris are prepared by your own cook. The menu is delicious with an emphasis on hearty wholesome meals to keep up your energy. Relax after meals while the Safari crew takes care of the dishes. Our staff are famous for their fresh corn and beer bread which they bake on the open fire. Nothing beats returning to camp after an active walk or game drive and smelling the aroma of freshly baked bread waiting to be eaten!!
Our continental breakfasts include cereal, toast (with jams and spreads), yogurt, boiled eggs, fresh fruit, tea, coffee & hot chocolate. We serve cooked brunches on game drives with egg, bacon, sausage and beans.
We keep it light and energizing with a “cold picnic” of various pasta / lentil / rice / tuna salads, deli meats, cheese and fresh bread. Juice is also served. Lunch is served at the campsite or scenic picnic spots en route.
Main meals are prepared over an open fire or on gas in the wild. We generally serve a meat, starch and vegetable every night accompanied by a desert on occasion. You will enjoy traditional African dishes including braais (barbecues); potjies (a stew slow-cooked for hours on the fire); Mielie Pap (maize meal) and a variety of game meat. Dinner is a special al fresco affair at a lantern lit table under the stars.
Our menus are carefully planned to complement each tour route. All food supplies are pre-purchased before the tour begins. Only perishables (bread, fruit and vegetables) are purchased en route. All our meat is bought fresh from reliable suppliers in Cape Town, Swakopmund and Victoria Falls then vacuum packed and frozen for the trip. We stand by the high quality of our meat. Our policy is not to purchase meat en route at local markets to avoid possible health risks.
Complementary Fresh Seasonal Fruit Baskets
Your guide will top up the fruit basket daily with fresh seasonal fruit subject to availability en route.
Drinks & Refreshments
Drinks and mineral water are not included in the overall tour cost. Drinks and refreshments en route are purchased from supermarkets and bottlestores and kept cold in the on board fridges provided. Truck is equipped with a water tank, filled with local water. It is safe to drink, or clients can add purifying tablets. Alternatively they can buy bottled water at own expense.
Each vehicle has 2 fridge/freezers. One for Kiboko stocks the other for clients drinks.
Our safari camping equipment includes your own personal camp bed, sleeping bag, mattress and small pillow. Items are clearly labeled to keep track of your set.
Spacious, comfortable tents are provided (W2.5m x L2.5m x H1.8m) accommodating two people. Tents are insect-proof and are equipped with built-in ground sheets for insulation. Every tent has two large aerated windows with mosquito netting.
Guests get a comfortable camp bed, mattress, sleeping bag and small pillow.
Toilet & Shower facilities
All campsites we use have proper sit down flush toilets and showers. These are fixed campsites and have fixed ablution blocks. The only exceptions to this are in Spitzkoppe (Great Trek Adventure, Namib to Falls Adventure, Namibia Adventure) where there are no showers and only a long drop toilet. On the Botswana Adventure when we camp in the wildlife area of Moremi Wildlife Reserve and Botswana Untamed when we camp in the wildlife areas of Moremi / Savute and Chobe we set up bush toilets and bucket showers.
