I spent quite some time camping in the Mara in '79 and plan to return.
I've just spent a couple of hours reading the posts here and have found them quite informative, however, despite all the "how can I stay for $5 a day" calls I have not seen a single mention of camping.
Not "tented camping" with an ensuite but real camping where you get out of your car in the bush and set up a 2kg tent.
That's what we did before and I know you can still do it in the designated areas, so why is nobody talking about this?
As I understand it the costs including all park fees is ~$120 per day of which only $30 is for camping, is it that it doesn't cost much more to have "real" accommodation?
Do any of the lodges match that and if so do their prices include the park fees?
