    4.5 - Excellent

    This trip exceeded my expectations - I had not expected to be as besotted by the scenery of Southern Africa as much as I was. Great leader who did everything in his power to ensure the group got the best experience possible. The truck was super-comfy with big windows to give us the best chance to catch view of the wildlife and landscape. Okavango Delta should be on every traveller's bucket list.

    It was my first time with Intrepid and with this kind of organized tour in general. I am use to travel a lot on my own to far destinations, mainly with 1-2 friends, however being this time alone I decided to give a try with Intrepid. Well, I have to say I can tell that my expectations have been all fullfilled or even by far exceeded! :) Meshack has been a great guide, as well as Danny as driver. Both very professional, with sense of Humor and super organized. We had a very tight schedule as every day we had to drive between 3 to 7hrs to the next destination, however we have never been late or missed something. All activities planned very were very well organized and allowed us really to do and see an impressive amount of places and wild animals in a very short amount of days. I would say the average age of the people was around 30, half couples and half friends/lonely travelers, most people were from countries were english is the mother tongue (mainly UK, Canada, Australia). The mood has been great for most of the trip and we never had any kind of fight or discussion within the group. If you are very indipendent, you might sometimes miss the freedom of organizing everything on your own, however there are some optional activities that allow for some flexibility and what to say, this is a group tour, so it's something you have to take into account from the beginning. That being said, the itinerary planned was great, the people and guide too and even being quite a wild and lonely traveler I barely missed that flexibility. So to sum up, I definetively liked this trip and recommend this tour to everybody, it has been a great experience. Suggest also to plan 1-2 days more before and after the tour to properly explore Johannesburg/Soweto and the Victoria Falls area.
