    Duncan and Philile were absolutely amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better duo as both were incredibly knowledgeable and so much fun to be with. Duncan's cooking was out of this world and Philile's driving and animal knowledge was incredible. Thanks... Show more

FAQs

  • What is the Adventure Pass?

    Every Overland tour has an Adventure Pass which is paid to your tour leader in Africa at the beginning of the tour (or pre-paid by arrangement prior to your tour). This is separate and in addition to the Tour Price, and covers selected park entries, activities and excursions along the way where payment goes directly to the supplier to ensure local suppliers benefit directly from the income.
