Camping on backpacking trips
Even though many backpackers are travelling on extremely tight budgets very few people decide to camp.
This is for a few reasons but mainly it can be bad enough living out of a rucksack for a year let alone living in a tent as well. It is also sometimes extremely difficult to find a place suitable to put up a tent. Then there's the security issue.... is it really worth it?
Well in some places yes. Some hostels in Australia and New Zealand will have places to camp. You are then also not so isolated.
However, hostels are so cheap, staying in a tent may not really justify carrying the thing around the world with you. You will also miss out on meeting so many people...
Unless you are an extremely keen camper I would leave the canvas at home.
Camping on adventure overland trips
Some adventure tour companies offer camping trips or trips with some nights camping and some nights in hotels.
These trips can be a great way to experince camping in remote places but without the hassle of carrying a tent with you as all camping equipment is provided.
