You're never too old to play outside 

Ditch the packed footpaths for dusty roads and head out on your next big adventure: a camping trip in the great outdoors. See the beauty of nature first-hand — and not through a bus window — as you trek to the famous Machu Picchu, sleep under the stars in the Aussie Outback, wake up to the animal sounds of the African wilderness, explore the captivating landscapes of the Canadian Rockies or discover the secrets of some of the USA's most famous national parks. Whether you’re excited to help set up camp or want to enjoy the creature comforts of premium accommodation in remote locations, our camping tours are for everyone from the first-timers to the tent enthusiasts (and everyone in between).

Why choose a camping trip with us? 

Access to remote areas

We take the idea of getting you off-the-beaten track seriously. Forget seeing a destination; we want you to experience it. Our camping trips will take you where busloads of tourists can’t, with feature stays in remote locations you won’t find in any travel brochures.  

Memorable experiences

It’s not every day you can fall asleep to the wild sounds of the Serengeti, swap stories around a campfire in the US or count the stars over the Australian Outback. On our camping trips, the fun doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down – and that’s a promise. 

More conscious camping

Responsible travel is at the forefront of every trip we run. We encourage every traveller to think about the environment and how we can make a positive impact, especially on our camping trips. We leave behind zero waste and camp in established areas where we can. 

Our favourite camping experiences 

Two giraffes standing in trees in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Hear the call of the wild in the Serengeti

One of the main drawcards of Africa is the chance to experience your very own ‘circle of life’ moment, and luckily for you, our 10-day East Africa Highlights trip allows you to do exactly that. With two nights camping in Serengeti National Park and no barrier between you and the bush, you’ll get as close to the animal action as possible while still remaining safe with your experienced three-person crew. All you have to focus on is the sound of the wilderness around you and the millions of stars above you.

A group of travellers standing with local Maasai women in the campsite at Loita Hills

Visit the Maasai in the remote Loita Hills

While Loita Hills is an extremely remote destination in Kenya (taking approximately 5-6 hours from Lake Naivasha), visiting the home of the proud Maasai people and learning about their daily life and ancient ways makes up for the long drive. Arrive on Maasai land in the early afternoon and set up your tent for the night before meeting a local elder to chat all things culture and customs. There’ll be no WIFI or shower facilities, but we reckon this is one experience that’s worth the small sacrifice.

Discover the delights of Monument Valley

There are few places in the United States that’ll leave you in dumbstruck awe quite like Monument Valley in Utah. Named for its giant sandstone formations naturally created over the centuries, this part of the state’s southeast is well worth exploring from iconic movie scene sites (anyone seen Forrest Gump?) and roadside stalls full of authentic snacks. After a full day of fun, debrief and unwind at your accommodation for the night - a traditional Navajo hut made from logs and dirt.

Fall asleep to the sounds of the Aussie Outback

If you’re after a true Aussie experience, our Uluru & Kings Canyon adventure is the trip for you. Not only will you see some of Australia’s most beautiful natural wonders, but you’ll also get to camp right in the middle of the desert in a campsite with permanent tents solely set up for our use. Sit around the fire at night, swapping stories of the day’s fun and wake up as the sun starts to light up the rich, red colour of the earth all around you. That’ll be one sunrise you definitely don’t want to miss.

A line of camels walking over the sand dunes in Morocco.

Escape the modern world in the Sahara Desert

Forget vehicular transportation; ride a camel instead towards your incredible solar-powered accommodation for the night in Morocco’s Saraha Desert. Hidden away among the sand dunes, this magical camp promises an escape from the modern world without straying too far from the premium amenities you’re accustomed to – think permanent tents with large beds, private ensuite bathrooms and authentic Moroccan décor. The best part? A traditional feast under the stars and live Gnaoua music to send you off to sleep.

An aerial view of permanent camps in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania

Gain access to amazing wildlife in Tanzania

What’s better than a one-night stay in permanent tented camps in Tarangire National Park? A two-night stay. That’s right. On our Premium Tanzania trip, relax in your room for the next couple of days and watch wildlife you’ve only ever seen in books casually walk past your tent’s veranda (think zebras, wildebeest and elephants – oh my!). As if that’s not enough, this eco-friendly camp features modern comforts such as ensuite bathrooms and a dining area perfect for eating with your fellow travellers.

A row of permanent tents in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan

Sleep under the stars in Jordan’s Wadi Rum

There are some spectacular landscapes in this world. And then there’s the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan. With an early wake-up call for a stunning sunrise you won’t easily forget and a thrill-seeking 4WD adventure over the dunes in your near future, the Wadi Rum Desert is a sight to behold – one you don’t have to leave when the sun starts to set. Make yourself at home at your Bedouin-style camp and get to know your hosts over plenty of glasses of mint tea, or as the locals call it ‘Bedouin whisky’.

Camping FAQs

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travellers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises). However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travellers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

Learn more about Intrepid's COVID-19 proof of vaccination policy

At Intrepid, we define camping trips as trips where the majority of nights use camping for accommodation. These include trips in North America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Australia and along the Inca trail. 

Most of our camping trips are in our Basix style; they keep things simple while promising an amazing trip experience for those on a budget. On our Basix style camping trips, you'll likely have to erect your own tent and pitch in around the campsite, including cooking meals and doing the washing up. However, we do have some camping trips in our Original, Comfort and Premium styles. These styles will often mean camping in pre-erected tents (by the crew) or permanent tented campsites. 

Read more about our trip styles

On some trips, you will have to set up your own tent - these trips will often be part of our Basix style range. But don't worry if you've never done it before; your local leaders and expert guides (not to mention your friendly fellow travellers) will be around to give you a helping hand. 

On some trips you will at times stay in unfenced campsites within National Parks. While this is a fantastic experience, there are a few safety rules to follow and it's important that you listen to any advice given by your leader and the park rangers regarding responsible and safe behaviour. This can include things like not leaving any meat or cooked food out overnight and cleaning up thoroughly before you leave the campsite. 

We're committed to making travel widely accessible, regardless of ability or disability. That’s why we do our best to help as many people see the world as possible, regardless of any physical or mental limitations they might have. However, we’re always happy to talk to travellers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them towards the most suitable itinerary for their needs and where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.
