Camping out in the African wild is a soul enriching experience
This is the traditional way colonial visitors travelled through Africa. Mobile camps started in East Africa and the trend moved south from Kenya to Tanzania. The best mobile camp operations are those who have done this type of safari the longest - &Beyond, Asilia Africa, Nomad, Alex Walker and even Tanganyika Wilderness Camps have secured the best areas and have the better mobile camp operations. This way of experiencing Africa is not that popular in Southern Africa because operators tend to invest in permanent structures on private land, rather than camps that can move every day.

More on Mobile camping safaris in Africa
First time visitors to Africa are sometimes a little intimidated by the idea of non-permanent or tented camps in the wilderness - concerned that the bigger, permanent lodges are safer. This is not necessarily the case. The most important thing to understand about the bush is that animals like to steer very clear of people, and so sleeping out in mobile camps is very much a safe experience. It is also incredibly rewarding and far more intimate than staying at the bigger lodges around Africa.
The thickness of your wall is not what protects you from wildlife – though it might make you sleep better. Animals see mostly shapes and will generally avoid structures and tents in camps, and beyond this, the camp managers are incredibly experienced at avoiding any unwanted human/wildlife conflict.
If you are concerned about comfort, worry no more. Mobile camps have all the luxury and comforts you would expect of any lodge with far less of the impact. You will get hot showers, comfortable beds, three wholesome meals a day and a cold Gin and Tonic by the fire at night. Beyond that, a life-changing mobile safari experience in the wilderness awaits.
