Janice's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“Our trip was very good for the money. The accommodations were adequate, our guide handled a lot of the details and we had time to explore on our own. Best for people traveling solo or as a couple.”

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, occasionally roughing it in the bush with no facilities, and getting the best possible views of the Big Five. While the trucks don’t have air conditioning, they do have sliding windows which let in the breeze and make it even easier to take spectacular snaps of the local wildlife. The drive days can be long, but it’s as much about the journey as the destination, and half the fun is the camaraderie. For more info on this style of travel, see our Africa overland page: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/africa/overland
  • To get to your Okavango Delta campsite, you'll travel by mokoro (a dugout canoe) to pass over the shallow waterways. Mokoros are small but stable, and local tribesman will be there to guide you.
  • The Limpopo Province stay, where you will meet and interact with the Hananwa people and their traditions, is a heavily culture-based activity. This is a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in the local way of life – so keep an open mind.
  • Wildlife viewing requires some sacrifice, like getting up before day break for dawn game drives. However, the lack of sleep is worth it for the exhilaration and excitement of spotting your first lion or rhino!
