Questions & Answers

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

    • When and where does the tour end?

      The tour ends on day 58 upon the group's arrival in Cape Town. This will be a day of travelling and sightseeing with little time to explore this vibrant city, therefore it's highly recommended that you extend your stay for a few days.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The tour commences with an early start in Nairobi, Kenya. Day 1 is action packed from the get-go so we recommend arriving in Nairobi at least a day early to combat any jetlag before the big adventure. Your specific accommodation details will be in your final trip documents and our Travel Experts will be happy to request additional accommodation for you at the starting point of the tour.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      This tour does not include complimentary transfers, however we can advise and assist with these arrangements. Please contact our customer support team for more information.
