Your Africa camping trip can take you where Drs. Louis and Mary Leakey have walked at the Olduvai Gorge, or where Jane Goodall observed gorillas in Kenya, or where Livingstone discovered and named Victoria Falls. If your camping trip routes through Nairobi, you can visit the home of Karen Blixen, author of "Out of Africa", on your way to your Kenya camping destination. Her home is now a Kenya National Museum. If you camp in South Africa's Kruger National Park, you have the best chance of seeing Africa's "Big Five" wildlife -- Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino.
Camping trips in Africa can be of a budget class, standard class, or luxury class. A budget class camping trip of short duration can be a surprisingly inexpensive way to gain memories that will last a lifetime.
