The tents were in a good condition and the campsites had nice and clean facilities.

Questions & Answers

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

    • What is the Adventure Pass?

      Every Acacia Overland tour has an Adventure Pass which is paid to your tour leader in Africa at the beginning of the tour (or pre-paid by arrangement prior to your tour). This is separate and in addition to the Tour Price, and covers selected park entries, activities and excursions along the way where payment goes directly to the supplier to ensure local suppliers benefit directly from the income.

    • What is it like travelling on an Overland Tour?

      Travelling on an overland is great fun, but it can also be challenging! This is a participation tour and
      your help will be needed in setting up the camp each night and assisting (usually on a rota basis) with
      the various day to day campsite duties, such as shopping, cooking and keeping the truck and camp
      tidy. But don’t worry it’s not all hard work and it’s a great way to meet the local people and get to
      know your fellow travellers. Your contribution benefits the success of the tour - most people find the
      greater their involvement, the greater their enjoyment of the whole trip.

    • Where and what time will the tour end?

      The Tour will end in the Late afternoon/early evening on day 25 at the below address:

      Johannesburg:
      Address: Mo Afrika Lodge
      120 Sandham Road
      Norton Home Estates, Benoni,
