    I am an older person(60) and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I was worried about the camping as I did not want to share a tent. I had my own tent for the entire trip and the assembly and tear down was not an issue. Most of the people were younger as... Show more

    For the price, the trip was amazing. We saw tons of wildlife, which was my main goal. Campsites were generally good although, as advertised, hot water was not always available. There was one hostel we stayed at that did not have showers and at times the... Show more

    The two of us (my wife and I age 32) were quite happy with the trip. The wildlife spotting was excellent and the people throughout Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, and Uganda were amazing. As with any tour like this, the people you're with make a huge... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • What equipment is provided for camping?

      We provide tents, sleeping mats and cooking equipment. The main items we ask you to bring is a sleeping bag, plate, cup, bowl and utensils.

    • Does this tour accept travellers over 60?

      Age usually isn’t an issue as long as the style of travel is clear. Typically we find that, as long as everyone is happy and "up for" the day to day routines and activities, and you are at ease travelling with different ages and eager to get involved with the day to day arrangements, there is no issue at all with senior travellers joining. 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 usually being to really get the most out of the wildlife parks and cultural experiences day to day

      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.

    • When is the best time to view the migration?

      The prime time to visit the Serengeti in Tanzania is usually regarded as being from late November through to March when the big herds of wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and zebra head on to the southern plains of the Serengeti.

      To get the best viewing on the other hand in Kenya's Masai Mara July through to September are usually regarded as the best months.

    • Are there any hidden costs?

      The costs to consider when travelling overland are:

      Safari price & Local payment,
      Optional excursions,
      Personal spending money,
      Visas.

      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.

    • What is the group size of this tour?

      These trips usually have about 10-15 people.
