    4.0 - Good

    Traveling in overland truck is a great way to explore this part of the world. The trip leader and driver were very knowledgeable and provided some great information. Camping overnight in the Mekong Delta is a definite highlight. Great trip, would absolutely recommend it.

    5.0 - Excellent

    Normally I travel alone. I decided to join this trip with Intrepid after a friend of mine told me about it. It wasn't only a wonderful trip, it was an amazing experience! Wonderful itinerary, great crew (guide, driver, local guides) and lovely group of travelers :-)

    Both guides (Simba Mugondo and Shimane Lekoto) were excellent hosts. All the game drives have been adventurous. Especially the trips to Okavango Delta, Chobe and Motopos were truly memorable.
