Purpose-built overland vehicles are used for the duration of this trip. These multi-purpose trucks, equipped with large sliding windows, allow for excellent game viewing. There is no air-conditioning, however, so it can get hot and dusty inside.

Don't be afraid of the camping - you will survive even if you are a city girl like me. Just be aware that you will be out of your comfort zone but never regret booking this trip. Use the essential info as your bible but also call and get as much info to get you comfortable. It gets really cold but during the day it gets super hot so pack wisely. If you have small or delicate hands bring gloves for the tent setup/breakdown as I found challenging but the crew were always available to help out if needed. Morning and Night game drives get COLD but are amazing. You will eat so very well if Issa is your cook. He is incredibly knowledgeable and takes pride in his meals. You will arrive safely and quickly if Jackson drives. Jackson can maneuver and fix anything you throw at him. You will fall in love with Africa and feel accomplished for having "roughed" it. You will want to come back.
