FAQs

    • Do we need to put our own tents up?

      This style of safari is 'limited participation', meaning that you will be asked to assist in pitching and striking down your own tent. There will be a camp assistant to complete all the other campsite chores.

    • Do I need to bring my own sleeping bag?

      Yes, you will need a good warm sleeping bag for your trek as the nights can get cool regardless of the season. Sleeping bags can be hired on your tour, so please inform your Travel Expert at least 14 days prior to departure if you wish to hire one.

    • Is there a packing list?

      Yes, your packing list will be in your final tour documents, which will be released 3 - 4 weeks prior to departure. Alternatively, feel free to contact our Travel Experts if you wish to obtain this list earlier.

    • Is there a single supplement?

      Yes. If you are travelling solo you will be matched with another solo traveller from your group of the same gender. Alternatively, if you prefer the privacy of your own room you can purchase a single supplement.

      Please note that you are only required to pay the single supplement and “upgrade to your own room” if you are travelling solo and wish to have your own room. They are completely optional.

    • Are any vaccines required?

      We recommend you contact a medical professional for the most up to date and accurate information. TourRadar cannot legally give medical advice and we want you to be well prepared for your trip of a lifetime!
