Our Exploration Camps are designed to offer a true “back to nature” experience, with the emphasis being on that experiential aspect of great safaris. We have recognised a strong desire in many travellers to go back to the original safari concept which allowed guests to touch, feel, smell and experience the wild, with their feet firmly in the dust. This ultimate connection with the earth, culture and wildlife in a very up-close and personal way gives an experience that is exclusive in the real sense of the word, as well as being very much away from the pressures of ‘normal’ life. Since these retreats offer tented accommodation, there is a degree of compromise required concerning the frills and other ‘add-ons’ that you might expect in a permanent lodge or camp. However, there is still a strong focus on ensuring complete comfort. Those prepared to forego some conventional ‘necessities’ so that they are unencumbered by buildings and all the paraphernalia that goes with them, will be able to go to sleep hearing only the noisy silence of the desert and to wake up to a chorus that announces the start of a new day. It is the kind of intimacy that can only be achieved by taking guests to the most wild, remote and private places, and keeping them well away from the beaten path.
Camp Doros is deliberately small and intimate, and it is located in a core area for desert adapted black rhino with activities largely focused on finding the black rhino with an experienced and qualified Rhino Ranger team.
Ultimate Safaris is privileged to be able to operate in pristine wilderness areas. We believe that the future of the environment and the natural inhabitants of these regions lies in the hands of the communities living there, and that this means they must be involved in the custodianship of their surroundings. The Conservation Travel Foundation is Ultimate Safaris’ registered non-profit organisation and it fully supports these ideals.
