    The staff were informative and friendly and there was a lot of sightseeing and activities included in the trip. I particularly liked how ethical Intrepid is as a company and how they give back to communities which we travelled through.

Questions & Answers

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

    • 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.
