Ethiopia will show you another side to Africa’s rich history as you meet with the locals in Addis Ababa, wander the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela and go on expedition into the other-worldly Danakil Depression.


Go in search of your favourite member of the animal kingdom as you safari in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Zambia; from the lions of the Serengeti to the elephants of the Ngorongoro Crater and the mountain gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to the hippos of the Lower Zambezi river, there is something for everyone.


There’s also the chance of getting the adrenalin pumping as you participate in any number of adventure sports in Jinja and Victoria Falls, or choose to lay back and relax on the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Spice Islands of Zanzibar.


An epic adventure that you’ll remember for a lifetime!

We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
