Special offers 2017
The safari industry is truly special. The quality of the game viewing, the uniqueness of the camps, and the friendliness of the staff are just a few of the things that make a destination popular. But with so many camps to choose from nowadays, properties across East Africa have to constantly stay competitive with their price. They advertise special offers and deals to do this, but with so many individual offers, it can get a little confusing… so we’ve put together the latest special offers for this season.
Roho ya Selous - 3 for 2
Roho ya Selous is the newest property to open its doors in the Selous Game Reserve, and from the moment it opens (on 17 August 2017), it is offering a special of 3 nights for the price of 2.

Renowned for its seclusion and total tranquillity in the bush, Jongomero is a fantastic camp that homes a swimming pool and spacious tents with a rustic interior. Its location in the southern borders of Ruaha National Park means that the game is not as good as camps located further north, but the camp is all about the remoteness and connection to the bush.

Both of these Essential Destination Camps offer the best location in the parks and with irresistible offers, we think they offer the best value for money too!
