Mobile camping is a unique and intimate way to enjoy a safari, especially for animal and nature lovers. You’re completely immersed in the national parks of Tanzania with wildlife all around you. These camps move according to wildlife concentrations, following the Great Migration, so you’re always near a prime location for animal viewing.
And there’s no sacrifice on luxury, most mobile camps combine the ambiance of early explorer campsites with the amenities of modern day hotels. Mobile camps are beautifully decorated and include comfortable beds and fully equipped bathrooms (ceramic toilets, showers, etc.). Meals and drinks are served in a separate dining tent where you can connect with fellow travelers and sit around a campfire enjoying the serenity of your surroundings.
The service at mobile camps is as attentive as any luxury hotel with all your needs being attended to without losing the authenticity of the camping experience. At night, guards walk you to your tent, your safety is always the number one priority.
If you’re vegetarian or vegan, theses camps are an especially great option as your chef is just feet away and able to handle customized orders far more easily than at a large crowded hotel.
There are many mobile camping sites to choose from, here are some favorites in Northern Tanzania. A picture speaks a thousand words…

“I really don’t know how it would have been possible to plan this trip without Liz. She found an amazing local tour service with a guide who went far beyond what most of the other guides were doing. She handled all the booking details, found amazing hotels/lodges/tented camps, organized the flights and travel insurance, and walked us through all the additional things we would have to do for the trip. And everything was fully customizable and luxurious.” Alyson Decker, Esq.
“I contacted Your Time Travels because I thought it would be nice to work with a woman who understood my priorities and my point of view, and I wanted to support a business that supports efforts to make our world a better place. What I found at Your Time Travels was a thoroughly dedicated professional who was always helpful (not to mention cheerful!) as I worked through the many questions and changes involved in planning my trip. Liz plunged in and followed through with everything. Her care and her attention to detail allowed me to relax and make the most of my travels.” Deborah Hirsch
“YTT’s services were very personal. I really felt like all my concerns were addressed. When I have used other travel planning services, once they had my money I never heard from them again but that was far from the case with Your Time Travels. I got almost weekly calls and emails about my trip up to one day before leaving. It really enhanced my excitement having someone who was almost as ecstatic as I was about the trip.” Erica Kubersky
