This is an expedition trip and is new to our range this year. Despite rigorous planning and research, new itineraries can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a welcome surprise, but every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
Our purpose-built overland vehicles allow for excellent game viewing. While they aren’t air-conditioned, they are equipped with large sliding windows to let in the fresh air and allow for excellent photography opportunities.
The drive days can be long and bumpy, but it’s as much about the journey as the destination – bringing a pack of playing cards is a great way to pass the time and get to know your fellow travellers.
There will be some early starts to make the most of the spectacular sunrises in this beautiful land and to beat the morning traffic on drive days.
While we would love to open up these real life experiences to all our travellers regardless of gender, it’s simply not yet possible to do so and operate in a socially responsible and culturally sensitive manner.
