Transport is provided by Overcoach. The Overcoach is a unique combination of two very different vehicles. It combines the comfort and speed of a coach, with the rough and rugged durability of the overland truck. The raised seating area offers optimum height for game viewing. The wide-opening windows increase photographic opportunities.
Three camp meals per day are included in the tour cost. Fresh produce is purchased as we travel to supplement our pre-packed food supplies. If a special vegetarian meal has to be made in addition to the group meal, your assistance may be required in the preparation. Occasionally the group may decide to eat a meal out, which will be at your own expense.
Our accomodations will include the following:
Camping - Two-person, walk-in dome tents (with built-in groundsheets), which have mosquito-net doors and windows are used. Passengers pitch their own tents (they're easy to set up and pack up) that are roomy enough to stand up in. Foam sleeping mattresses are also provided.
Huts - This will be a mixture of rondavel huts, cabins, bungalows and occasionally a communal dorm-bedded room. They have a rustic charm, and not the luxury found in some hotels.
Camp Sites Many are within National Parks, such as Kruger, which have hot water, showers, flush toilets and boast extras such as laundry facilities and a swimming pool. Other campgrounds cannot provide hot water for showers but their location possibly offers what their facilities lack. These tours also take the opportunity to bush camp, where there are no facilities but which allows access to remote areas and offers a unique African experience.
All camping and cooking equipment is provided. See What to Bring for personal needs.
Entrance fees to game parks, camp sites, museums and other places of interest listed in your itinerary are all included. Offering an all inclusive price means that all the highlights mentioned in our tour itineraries, such as the complete Okavango Delta experience, the use of specialized local safari operators in certain National Parks, etc are all covered by your tour price. No additional budgeting is needed. There may be occasions on tour when optional adventure activities can be booked and paid for locally, e.g. bungee jumping, dune boarding, etc. These would be at your individual expense.
Their principal role is to look after the group. They will give the low-down on the sights, wildlife, history and people. They will ensure you get the most out of your tour and will endeavor to make your holiday one you will always remember.
