What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The whole experience!Ninth trip & the best!Camping by far best option. Unzipping tent and seeing wildlife, eyes in the night, tracks in morning and hearing the sounds of Africa make for unforgetable experience!Elephants a few metres away at waterholes at night, head standing beetle on the sand dunes, stunning malacite kingfishers in the delta & hump back whales in the surf!The group made the trip as everyone helped, shared, pointed out wildlife & allowed everyone to see & photograph even in tightest spots! 5000km of stunning Southern Africa!

Tour Leader Name

Thulani

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Thulani was excellent.He was well organised, his eyesite was super human & tracking skills had to be seen to be believed! He passed on his vast knowledge of the history, geography, politics of each country and he kept us amused each day with yarns about his time as a tracker in the bush!Thulani along with Innocent our cook & Jabalo our driver made up our memorable family! A great team!

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Bring SA$ not US$, they are accepted in all countries visited apart from Zimbabwe (meals). Optional trips are few and can be paid by card. Namibia at night can be cold, bring layers. Washing dries quickly during day so don't bring too many clothes! Head torches essential, small hanging torch useful.Be prepared to help set up and break camp, load the safari truck, wash up etc. There are long drives and sand gets everywhere but is all part of the experience! Even most basic camp site not as basic as expected! Flush toilets & electricity!No problems charging batteries but bring extra memory cards!

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

The group are still in contact; all suffering withdrawal symptom after being so close for well over three weeks! Oli set up a flickr a/c so everyone has dumped their best photos to share and enjoy! Great idea for future trips as no one could capture all the memorable moments of the trip!

Our Response

Thank you for your review. The comfort rating on this tour is graded as basic as we are in the remote areas of South Africa.  Many do however say camping is the best way to experience Africa.

The weather in Africa can be unpredictable, but we do state on our tour notes that seasonal summer rain starts around mid-November and usually ends in April.

This was my first camping experience ever and I have to say for the first few days I wondered if I would survive!! I more than survived; camping is the way to see Africa. The travelling is dusty, bumpy and very long but oh the countryside is great. The highlights for me were climbing the sand dunes at dawn, taking a microlight flight over the Victoria falls, white water rafting, seeing aardwolf, wild dogs, leopard (as well as many more animals including hundreds of birds!!) and the people I met. Travelling and camping alone was easy as everyone helped each other put up and take down the tents. Before starting this experience think about the dust – it gets everywhere and you are never really free of it. The Monster (our transport) is great; it holds tents, luggage, food, etc however it is always bumpy or very bumpy especially if you are at the back. The journeys are long but I loved them. This part of Africa is beautiful – especially Namibia. The people of Africa and the people who travel there are friendly, lively and well worth meeting. I enjoyed all aspects of the adventure and as someone who has had holidays in South America, SE Asia, China, India, Alaska as well as Europe I can say for the first time I have been travelling. Don’t expect a night life, take at least two torches, expect good food cooked at the roadside (no-one on our trip was ill) and accept what happens it will be great even if it is not quite what you expected.

Highlights: Namib Naukluft NP, Sossusvlei; Cape Town; Victoria Falls and Game drives; unexpected: drought, dusty and sometimes windy; advice: do it and take it as it is. (SW - 16h October 2010)
