The flight over the delta is absolutely spectacular and a must, spotting wildlife from the air. Chobe river sunset cruise with tons of animals around the water ..."

    The trip was very well organized. There was even flexibility to allow for last minute time changes so that we were able to do everything that was on our schedule. For every activity we did there was enough time, it never felt like a hassle.

    Mixed feelings on this - our guide was awesome, and we saw and did many wonderful things. Okavango delta was wonderful, as was Chobe, Matoba, Kruger. So many highlights in terms of itinerary. But there were a lot of travel heavy days on an uncomfortable... Read more

    It was overall an amazing trip with great CEOs. However, the only thing holding back from a perfect 10 is that our lando was a bit old and missing many of the advertised amenities.

    The trip was affordable and ideal for young people who are travelling solo for the first time. The reason I gave a 9 and not a 10 is related to one area which needs improvement - that is information regarding finances. There were a number of meals not... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • What is the time of departure from Johannesburg on the first day?

      Day 1 of this tour is quite relaxed, to allow for everyone in the group to arrive and get settled after travelling. The only scheduled activity is the welcome meeting in the evening. This usually occurs around 6pm, but can vary slightly - we would be able to confirm this time closer to the start date of the tour.

      Here is the itinerary for Day 1:

      Arrive at any time.
      (If you arrive a day or two early, we recommended booking an excursion to Soweto or the Apartheid Museum.)

      Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting - 1 hour
      The adventure begins tonight. Feel free to explore, but make sure you're back in time to meet the group. After introductions, your CEO will review the details of your tour.

      Unfortunately, this trip does not have an accommodated option.
