Ou company specialises in small group tours (2-7 people) in luxury air conditioned vehicles.
The owner has extensive experience in the industry, and previously handled groups of up to 25 people on overland trucks. He believes that travelling in small groups has many benefits, from choosing campsites to preparing meals. The guide can also spend more of his time on the individuals needs, making your trip even more memorable.
Most of the tours we offer are available in either a camping or accommodated format. Camping is a unique way to experience Africa, and many people are surprised just how luxurious camping with us can be. We use spacious, luxury, canvas dome tents that sleep 2 people comfortably. The tents all have inbuilt mosquito netting and ground sheets keeping the bugs at bay! Each person has their own inflatable mattress for a great nights sleep. You will not be expected to put up your own tent, or inflate your mattress, that's our job! We also equip each tent with a night light, and each person has their own torch, so there is no fumbling around in the dark. All campsites have good ablution facilities, shops for basics (film, snacks, water) most also have swimming pools and bush bars. At some locations on camping tours we will stay in backpacker accommodation, in these instances the rooms will only be shared by other members of our tour group. For accommodated tours we stay in carefully selected luxury bungalows, chalets, timber cottages and lodges.
Sitting around a campfire as the sun sets at the end of a long day, while your meal is prepared for you is a really wonderful part of travelling in Africa. Most of the cooking during the camping tours will be done over an open fire, or gas stove.
The tour leader has years of restaurant experience and really takes a pride in his cooking, he will be assisted by the other members of the team, so you can sit back and reminisce about the days events.
Breakfast is generally cereals, toast, yogurt and fruit, but there will be a few days when you will get a bacon and eggs treat!Lunch is often done en route at sheltered stops, and usually consists of sandwiches, salads and cold meats and cheeses etc. Evening meals are well prepared balanced meals, containing all your essential food groups.
For the luxury accommodated tours our evening meals will be at carefully selected gourmet restaurants and traditional African restaurants. You will still have the opportunity to experience some traditional campfire foods at some of our more remote locations, and this is a highlight for many people.
We do cater for vegetarians, and those with special dietary needs, but it is essential that you let us know in advance.
