camping gear for self drive trip in norther circuit

Hi there,

I'll be doing a self drive with the family in july in the serengeti. We also plan on camping. Is there anyone with experience about the types of tents that are ok for this kind of purpose?

We have a lightweight eureka and that has functioned well in europe and asia.....but i am wondering if the open sides may be quite inviting for guests such as snakes and spiders.

Further is there anyone with experience on the camping grounds near the national parks in the north?

thanks in advance .

Hi, if you return to the Tanzania forum page, there is a list of frequent questions on the right hand side. At the bottom is a question about self drives with links to other relevant information.

Self driving is somewha tin its infancy in Tanzania, unlikrpe other countries with more infrastructure to support it, but it is improving particuliarly since gps.

Some rentals rent vehicles with tent on the roof, but with a family you will most likely need extra. Perhaps the car rental company can rent you appropriate items.
