What is a safari shower?

Also known as the Bucket Shower

A bucket shower is a simple bathing structure used by guests to shower in mobile or tented camps where there is no permanent plumbing. They are effective as they help to conserve water use on our eco camping sites. A bucket shower uses a water bucket which is attached to a pole with a pulley and rope. It is then filled with a couple gallons of hot water and then hoisted up to lead directly to a pipe and a shower head that is inside a private bathing tent. You can control the flow of your shower with an on/off faucet usually attached close to the shower head.
