Camping often allows us to stay in the heart of the most breathtaking natural scenery, away from fast food outlets and the encroaching development. Our experienced tour leaders and top quality equipment will surely enhance your experience; and at many sites we stay two or three nights, so there is more time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. On special occasions, our groups may utilise rustic, wilderness sites in order to fully appreciate more the natural surroundings of remote areas. That said, waking up at camp to the smell of freshly brewed coffee provides a truly intimate natural experience and one that eludes conventional tourists.
Your comfort and safety is important to us and we only use high quality camping gear which is top of the range. We provide spacious two-person tents and thick (air/foam-filled) sleeping pads to ensure your evenings are comfortable and restful. Sturdy camp chairs are often available for those fireside chats and your guides help prepare delicious meals in our portable kitchens using state of the art camping stoves and gas lanterns.
