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.

    The accommodation for this tour is arranged on camping in 2-people tents, which includes camping and cooking equipment and sleeping mattresses. In case you book this tour, you will just need to bring your own sleeping bag with you.
