We use our purpose-built overland vehicles for the duration of this trip. It is important to note that while our vehicles are not air-conditioned, all windows do open to allow for fresh air. But please be aware that road travel in Africa comes with its fair share of dust, so while curtains are fitted to minimize the sun shine, it can get hot and windy.
This itinerary features some long travel days which can be exacerbated by bumpy African roads. It is recommended that you pay close attention to our given approximations of distance and driving hours.
Our overland safaris do not necessitate exceptional fitness levels, but a general level of physical movement is required. For example, you need to judge yourself physically fit enough to handle.
Some passengers on this trip may have been travelling together prior to the start of your trip.
As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.

This trip hits all the highlights of Tanzania and includes incredible game drives and cultural experiences. Expect rough roads and some less than 5-star accomodation - this is all part of the African experience! I would highly recommend seeing Eastern Africa with Intrepid.

This trip is amazing. Something different every day - every changing cultures, landscapes and animals. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on this tour, and cannot recommend it enough. Pack light, bring lots of light weight, sun protective clothing and a wide brimmed hat. You will not regret this tour. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
