    Safari types

    We offer a wide range of luxury, standard and budget safaris. 

    We strive to match your desired safari experience with the most appropriate accommodation. Available lodgings range from luxury tented camps and lodges to adventure camping.

    Accommodation types can be mixed and matched depending on your budget and itinerary, ie. we can combine luxury and standard safaris or include a few lodge nights with a budget safari. Whenever possible, we book accommodation inside the national parks. This allows game drives to start earlier and end later as you avoid going through park gates. 

    Luxury Safari Accommodations 

    • High-end permanent and mobile tented camps

    • High-end lodges

    • Generally small properties (6-20 rooms)

    During safaris, you'll travel in Duma-owned vehicles with Duma-trained staff. We take great pride in maintaining our vehicles and have had only one vehicle rescue since 2006. This is quite an accomplishment given the condition of the roads! We use Land Cruisers during our safaris that have been converted to open top safari vehicles. For more information and photos of our vehicles, please visit the section Vehicles and Safety in the Safari info page.

    Safaris include the following items:

    • All park entrance, camp, lodge and camping fees

    • All meals and bottled drinking water (in vehicle) while on safari

    • 4WD Toyota Land Cruiser transportation including game drives
