Cape Town to Victoria Falls Adventure
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
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!

How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Generaly well informed about wildlife. didn't warn us how WET it would be at Victoria falls (momsoon rain hiking boots not recomended)
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Not a relaxing holiday long bumpy rides on featureless roads. Don't expect to see much of Cape town your only there a couple of hours (better book your own flight in to Cape town maybe a couple of days prio) Immigrationa Jo'berg a nightmare like being in the queue at ASDA difficult to make conecting flights. Nothing can prepare you for 5am wakeup get the tent down 6am breakfast 7am on the road for sometimes 10 hours. Need more time in proper accomodation with facilities. Views from the truck exceptional gets you close up to the animals.
Do you have anything else to add?
NOT FOR SOFTIES TAKE A CUSHION AND PLENTY OF PAIN KILLERS! UNDERSTAND THE SEASONAL CONDITIONS COULD BE VERY WET.
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.
