    I had an excellent tour. I did the Namibian Nomad tour, along with Garden Route, and enjoyed it immensely. I had a fantastic tour guide in Manache and driver in Judah. The tour experience was great, minus the truck breaking down, but it was all fun.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Does this tour have a strict age limit?

      We don't have an age limit at all. Just note that the age range on our tours tends to be between mid twenties through to late thirties, whilst trip to trip the window is regularly very much wider and on every other trip there are travellers in their fifties on the trucks, and at times sixties, as well as the occasional teenager. So you should be fine travelling in your fifties.

      Age usually isn’t an issue as long as all travelling are quite clear as to the style of travel, that you appreciate the trips are group participation camping tours. Typically we find as long as everyone is happy with and "up for" the day to day routines and activities, and you are at ease travelling with different ages and happy to get involved with the day to day arrangements usually there is no issue at all with travellers travelling in their fifties. Most older clients have a ball and really enjoy it all. The groups tend to be quite like minded regardless of age with the prime objective

    • How much will this tour really cost me?

      The costs to consider when travelling overland are:

      Safari price & Local payment,
      Optional excursions,

      We are always very transparent about what a tour will cost and are happy to go through personal, tailored budgets to give you a very realistic idea of what you will spend on your tour - whether you are an adrenaline junkie, souvenir-shopaholic or travelling on a shoestring…

    • What is the local payment?

      The local payment is a separate payment from the initial price you pay before you leave. If a local payment is required it will be shown with the trip price.

      This second payment is made in Africa at the start of your trip. It is payable in USD.

      The local payment provides us with the means for expenses that need to be paid in cash to local businesses en route to be arranged in the most cost effective manner possible, a saving we can then pass on to you. It also means we can operate in a way that directly supports local businesses and wildlife authorities as we travel.

      Local Payment will not be changed once you have booked your travel arrangements.
