    Frequently asked questions

      • 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,
        Johannesburg 1501

      • Is tipping customary?

        This is always a matter for your own individual discretion but as in many areas where tourism is an important contributor to the
        economy, it has become customary to give a small gratuity to local staff, including your tour leader and driver, at the end of a
        tour if services rendered have been to your satisfaction.

      • Where is the meeting point on Day 1?

        The tour departs from the below address at 8am on Day 1:
        Cape Town
        Ashanti Lodge, Green Point
        23 Antrim Rd,
        Three Anchor Bay
