Subhash's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“First solo trip for me, but the tour group staff (and guests for that matter) were excellent - the travelling times whilst long, were well worth it - our Intrepid guide Tshepo and driver Cosmas made the trip effortless with good organisation, clear communication and always timely starts/finishes - the information provided at each location, picture opportunities given, fun activities, good food and basically everything else, made this my favourite trip to date - will defo be doing another Africa tour with Intrepid.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • This is an overland trip. That means you’ll be travelling with a group in a purpose-built vehicle, visiting remote communities, setting up your own tent and occasionally roughing it in the bush with no facilities – but unrivalled access to the wilderness. For more info on this style of travel, see our Africa overland page: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/africa/overland
  • We use mokoros (small dugout canoes) to pass through the shallow waterways of the Okavango Delta to get to our campsite for the night.
  • At Usambara Mountains the group will do an easy hike to the beautiful Irente viewpoint.
  • Camp in the Serengeti National Park itself without fences between you and the animals. Your leader will brief you on the safety measures the group will need to take for the two nights spent in the park.
  • There are many optional activities on this trip. Please take this into consideration when budgeting.
  • The overland vehicle is large enough to seat up to 22 passengers and carries all the camping equipment needed for the duration of this trip.
  • As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.
  • You may also want to check out our Africa Encompassed Northbound trip if you have more time to explore in Africa.
