There are many optional activities on this trip. Please take this into consideration when budgeting for this trip.
We use our purpose-built overland vehicles for the duration of this trip. This multi-purpose truck allows for great game viewing with large sliding windows. As such the trucks do not have air-conditioning and conditions can be dusty and hot.
The overland vehicle is large enough to seat up to 22 passengers and carries all the camping equipment needed for the duration of this trip. Therefore the going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads.
This is a participatory camping trip. You will be expected to set up and take down you own tent as well as assist with food preparation and cleaning.
Some passengers on this trip will have been travelling together prior to the start of your trip.
This itinerary is valid for departures from 01 January 2017 to 31 December 2017. View the itinerary for departures between 01 January 2018 - 31 December 2018

Our Vic Falls to Kenya trips score an average of 5 out of 5 based on 3 reviews in the last year.
This trip offers an excellent opportunity to travel through East Africa, with a very good balance of both cultural and wildlife experiences. The game drives were breath taking, with a wealth of animals to see in their natural environments. I would highly recommend the hot air balloon experience in the Serengeti which was pure magic!

Fantastic trip! Our crew: leader Victor, driver Sam, and cook Mike were all excellent. Great time of year to go - though Vic Falls wasn't full it was still spectacular, we had excellent weather (just an hour of rain while in the Serengeti), saw plenty of animals and the mosquitos and tse tse flies weren't a big issue. Felt it was better to travel from Vic Falls to Kenya rather than the reverse direction, as the trip just got better and better and better (and we got the long travel days out of the way in the first half of the trip).
