Camping Converts On The Rise In The Recession

Avon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 11, 2009 -- Heath Ashcroft, Marketing Director for Acacia Adventure Holidays, comments: “Camping is not all rough and ready. Our four-day Call Of The Kruger Small Group Safari includes two full days of game viewing in the national park and the campsite comes with a pool, shop, restaurant and bar. The accommodation is close to the perimeter fences and it’s not unusual to hear the roar of a lion at night or chance upon a spotted genet at the evening barbeque. If you’re looking for somewhere otherworldly there’s always Spitzkoppe in the heart of Namibia. The dramatic red rock landscape is ideal for a little impromptu “bouldering and travellers can camp out under the stars.”

Part of Acacia Adventure Holidays’ recent questionnaire also focused on the best campsite experiences:

Best for Camaraderie: Think Glastonbury on safari, as the Ngorongoro campsite has room for up to 200 tents. Perfect for the young at heart in search of non-stop animal action a short walk will leave you with excellent views of the caldera – buffalo and lion roaming through the rim woodlands. 24-day overland South East Adventure £845pp + local payment.

Best for getting off the beaten track: Wooden wind chimes are accompanied by rhythmic music, the ambient sounds drifting out across the Zambezi. An eco-camp which is described as a barefoot paradise – all the floors are lined with white sand. Its thatched accommodations come complete with awe-inspiring river views where you can catch sight of the wildlife and each hut is built and maintained by the local community. Available on the 6-day Community Schools Voluntour £510pp + local payment.

Best for wildlife action: In Etosha, adventurers can carry on wildlife viewing back at camp as the site is famous for its floodlit waterholes. Almost every animal is represented in this huge reserve: lions, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest and springbok often making an appearance. Great concentrations of water birds also inhabit the region in the wet season (Nov-Mar), including a breeding colony of flamingos. 43-day overland Cape Town to Kenya £1,295pp + local payment.
