  • Gorillas to Cape Town reviewer 1
    Written on April 22, 2017
    4.0 - Good

    Life Changing!! An amazing experience; beginning to end! Would recommend to anyone that is open minded and truly wants to see the real Africa. As far as an operation goes, Absolute did a very good job. Some improvements need to be made; for sure. But in terms of the route, activities and options it is an excellent choice. Safety was never a concern. Not all guides are created equal. Which is true for any tour you'll choose. Our first guide had "checked out" and didn't have leadership skills. When you have such a large diverse group you need someone in control and we were so lucky to get a second guide that was just that. Fun, good leadership skills and engaging. Know that all age ranges are on this trip; some real young and several in their 60's. That can be a challenging mix, so be ready to be trapped on a truck with all kinds of people...ha! Seriously, go with an open mind and you will LOVE the people that you share the journey with. Also, read everything before you book! A lot of people were shocked by what was covered and what wasn't. Some also thought it was nice to luxury accommodations; it's definitely roughing it in Africa!!

Questions & Answers

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

    • When is the best time to view the migration?

      The prime time to visit the Serengeti in Tanzania is usually regarded as being from late November through to March when the big herds of wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and zebra head on to the southern plains of the Serengeti.

      To get the best viewing on the other hand in Kenya's Masai Mara July through to September are usually regarded as the best months.

    • What is the local payment?

      The local payment is a separate payment from the initial price you pay before you leave. If a local payment is required it will be shown with the trip price. This second payment is made in Africa at the start of your trip. It is payable in USD. The local payment provides us with the means for expenses that need to be paid in cash to local businesses en route to be arranged in the most cost effective manner possible, a saving we can then pass on to you. It also means we can operate in a way that directly supports local businesses and wildlife authorities as we travel. Local Payment will not be changed once you have booked your travel arrangements.

    • How much will this trip really cost me?

      The costs to consider when travelling overland are:

      Safari price & Local payment,
      Optional excursions,
      Personal spending money,
      Visas.

      We are always very transparent about what a tour will cost and are happy to go through personal, tailored budgets to give you a very realistic idea of what you will spend on your tour - whether you are an adrenaline junkie, souvenir-shopaholic or travelling on a shoestring…
