Going on safari is expensive. Even if you go on a lot of holidays, or even if you do your safari on a tight budget, going on safari is likely to be one of the more expensive adventures you ever take. This is for a number of reasons, not least because places to go on safari, like Tanzania, are probably far away from you. If you’re in the US for example, you’re talking at least two long haul flights to get there and that of course comes at a cost (luckily that doesn’t seem to put many of you off, and to be fair you are far from everywhere!).
Occasionally when you’re trying to organise a safari, someone might ask you whether you want to go to fly-camping. That person, probably hopelessly obsessed with safaris, will likely be very enthusiastic about the whole idea and forget entirely that you have, quite understandably, absolutely no idea what fly-camping is.
