Taking the current economic situation in consideration, Southern Africa as safari and holiday destination, has opened up in the past few years, and now offers various very affordable safari travel options, ranging from comfortable tented camping safaris to all-inclusive mid-range lodge tours and top luxury lodge trips.
With the above in mind: Namibia as safari destination, still offers the best value for money. Due to its spectacular natural diversity, peacefulness and value-for-money, Namibia will always be highly recommended by Gateway Africa.
One of the most affordable ways of exploring Southern Africa is by going on a scheduled overland tented camping safari.
The days of really roughing it is gone (Well, you can still do it if you prefer). The majority of camping facilities used on the main-line safari routes, has nearly all the modern facilities (flush toilets and hot water showers), and generally of a higher standard if compared to camping sites in many European countries.
These are quite affordable and full of adventure, but truly a spectacular way of exploring various Southern African destinations. Often multi-country in nature, but also could concentrate on a single country.
Taking this in account, adventure camping safaris and their mid-range roomed accommodated up-grade options, has become very popular in Southern Africa.
