Camping was pretty much what I expected with a good mix of remote and basic camping with more comfortable camping with excellent facilities. A good mix of camping experiences.

    4.0 - Good

    Joined tour mainly because of Okavango and Victoria Falls, but in the end I came to value the social aspect of the trip just as much as the wonderful sights along the route.

    Very happy with the tour, Jays information, sense of humour and assistance made everything run smoothly. Sandile the driver assisted in so many ways other than driving, and Lizzy and Nosipho made delicious meals every day. Thank you all for a great experience.

    A brilliant, wonderful, adventure. Saw amazing wildlife, met incredible people. Not for the lovers of creature comforts - by camping they mean camping. If that doesn't phase you the it's a great to get away from it all.
