Easy Camping Tours 2024

Easy Camping Tours 2024


Dear Travellers,

March is just around the corner, which means I will be on my way to Sri Lanka soon for our annual wildlife, history and culture tour. I look forward to meeting those of you who will be joining me over there, and for those travelling to Botswana on safari instead, I wish you a safe and lucky journey (because it often takes a bit of luck to be in the ‘right place at the right time’ when it comes to wildlife!).

If you are looking for a trip closer to home, I’d like to tell you more about our Easy Camping tours and why you should give them a go if you haven’t already. Originally, I created this option for our passengers who don’t want to give up camping, but find the set-up and take-down of camp more strenuous than it once was. Since then, clients have told me time and time again that pre-erected tents make a world of difference and are a welcome relief at the end of the day, because setting up is not only tiring, it takes time.

In addition to no set-up or take-down, Easy Camping also gives you the gift of time. Instead of spending the first thirty minutes to an hour assembling your tent, stretcher and bed, you can use those precious daylight hours for a walk in nature, relax with some quiet time, or enjoy nibbles (and perhaps a wine!) with fellow passengers as the sun goes down. Without the pressure to get the tent up before dark, or packed up promptly in the morning, this camping style really is “easy” and relaxed.

In the words of previous ‘easy campers’…

Arriving at our destination and finding our tents prepared was a delight, especially as we watched other groups trying to erect their own tents. This type of camping was a game changer for us and it all seemed to happen flawlessly.” S&JH, Kimberley Wonders 2023

Don’t be put off by sleeping in tents as camping is the only way for a group to be accommodated in this region of WA. I really did like having the tents set up by the Coates crew. They are generous in area and height and the stretcher beds were surprisingly comfortable.” MR, Western Explorer 2022

The tents were very comfortable. The Easy Camping made everything just that…easy. Easy Camping also gave the campers a chance to share experiences whilst waiting for meals at the end of the day.” MCM&PD, Kimberley Discovery 2019
