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.

Wouldn't travel with anyone other than Intrepid for an Africa trip!

I would use Intrepid again since I had an AMAZING time with the crew we had. I would go back to Africa in a Heartbeat and Always carry Toilet Paper with you as not everywhere has it.
