We advise to take out Travel Insurance to cover for any unforeseen circumstances. Bookmundi recommends World Nomads' travel insurance.Other Practical InformationWe recommend that you arrive 1 day prior to your trip start date. While it is our intention to adhere to the route described above, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion, it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations. Additionally, any travel times listed are approximations only and subject to vary due to local circumstances. Transportation: This is not a physically demanding journey; however, traveling can be difficult, with long drives and poor road conditions at times. Despite this, most clients feel that the diversity of the African landscape, countries, culture and wildlife are all well worth the experience. We use a comfortable and safe airconditioned touring vehicle for long drives. Money exchange: We strongly advise that you bring EUR or USD from your home country or exchange money before the start of the tour, to avoid delays on tour. Guidance: You will be accompanied by a tour leader and an expert driver. All of our leaders are registered and licensed tourism guides, meaning they’ve studied to have a broad knowledge base of the region’s history, cultures, and wildlife, and are legally certified to lead/guide tours in the regions visited. Most of our leaders in the region are from Morocco, though it may be possible that you’ll have a leader from another country in the West African region. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. They will provide information on the places where are travelling, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. He/she will take care of the small things so you can concentrate on enjoying your adventure. In addition, as an integral part of the team, your driver is a skilled and experienced driver who has intimate knowledge of the vehicle and routes traveled. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge will add to the enjoyment of the places we are visiting Meals: Eating is a big part of travelling. On this tour, we provide only a few meals for you and your group members, so as to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility in your choices. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though while in the larger centers, your group leader will be able to suggest favorite restaurants during your trip. Your tour leader prepares the meals included in la Plage Blach, arranging to purchase the foodstuffs before our camping excursion begins. Breakfasts will generally be cereals if time allows a warm breakfast may be prepared. Lunches will be light meals such as sandwiches and/or salads. All evening meals will be freshlyprepared hot meals and will consist of a variety of continental and local dishes. For the included meals, vegetarian meal requests and other dietary requirements need to be specified prior to arrival. Solo Travellers: We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multishare accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travelers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price. What to bring: You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. Your baggage should be clearly labeled and restricted to one soft compact suitcase (please avoid a hardtop case), or sports bag, maximum 15kg, plus a daypack. Luggage limits on airlines are strictly enforced and space on vehicles is limited. Porters are not often available, so be prepared to carry your own bags. It is important to pack clothes for warm days and cool evenings, as well as a warm jacket for early morning wildlife safari drives. A set of smart casual clothes is also advisable. During the winter months, the temperatures can get quite cold. It is wise to bring plenty of layers for cool mornings and evenings. A set of smart casual clothes is also advisable.
