Create a Shelter Before Dark!

One of the most important Camping Tips is to plan your journey to any Camping destination so that you arrive before dark.

Camping in Botswana for South Africans is a fun and popular destination. African Ranches River Camp Botswana offers an unforgettable experience. Plan your trip correctly so that you can have your tent and campsite up before dark!

Take the appropriate clothes and seasonal sleeping bags!

Remember that Camping in Botswana is an outdoor experience for most people, so the logical thing to do is to wear comfortable clothes. Be aware of the climate and seasonal weather of the camping destination you're going to. Protect your feet! Ideally you would want to wear hiking boots when camping and exploring the surrounding areas. Even seasonal sleeping bags can make a big difference to your camping experience. In the summer months a light-weight sleeping bag would be recommended and in the colder winter seasons a sleeping bag with a lower temperature rating would be able to keep you warm in the cold African Safari climates.

Always have enough clean water and survival kit!

In most areas of Africa, malaria is a problem. Please be aware of the area and malaria warnings and take the needed malaria shots or pills with you on your trip. Clean drinking water isn't always available in camping sites and everyone knows how important water is to avoid dehydration in the warmer months and just in general. Make sure you have a survival kit handy to disinfect any cuts or bruises which you might have to treat on your camping experience in Botswana.

Please Note: African Ranches is a Malaria free Camp Site in Botswana!

African Ranches River Camp has fresh, clean & safe drinking water!

Take extra precaution when camping with your kids or animals!

Kids and your pets by nature is very adventurous. Always be aware of the animals which are wandering around the camp site and set a couple of rules and regulations or rather, playing boundaries. Always have an adult with the kids or pets when they decide that they would like to explore the camp site. Having a walk with your pet around the camp site once you arrive will familiarize him or her with the area, and if your pet is well trained it wouldn't be a problem to set a boundary for them.
