HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Ge ready to spot lions, cheetahs, zebras, elephants, hippos, gazelle, giraffes, ostriches, wildebeest – pretty much every character from the opening scene of the Lion King.
  • Hang with the redclad Maasai folk. A local elder will explain to you what the tribe is all about, and they'll even show you around their house.
  • The rolling plains of the Masai Mara and Serengeti are quite simply epic. They also make for fairly unique environments in which to pitch a tent.
  • Ever helped save a Rhino? Make that a yes during a visit to Botswana’s Khama Rhino Sanctuary, where the last of the world’s black and white rhinoceros live.
Starting in Nairobi and ending in Johannesburg, the Epic African Adventure trip is a guided adventure trip that takes 31 days. You will visit Kruger National Park, Zanzibar Northern Beaches, Khama Rhino Sanctuary and 18 other destinations in 6 different countries. Epic African Adventure is a group trip which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. See below for further details.

If you’re going all the way to Africa, you want to do it right. This 32-day journey through Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe offers a mixture of safari and wildlife spotting, mingling with people in villages and nomadic tribes, canoe cruising down the Okavango Delta, relaxing on white-sand beaches and sipping local beers in Vic Falls. This rugged adventure won’t just turn you into a master camper (though that’s bound to happen too). The landscapes, local stories and animal encounters will leave you changed forever.

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

Is this trip right for you:
  • Loita Hills is a proper adventure – you'll be in a bush camp with no showers as the Maasai guard you from the animals.
  • Similarly, camping in the Serengeti means, well, camping in the Serengeti. It's very cool but remember there's no fence between you and the animals. Your expert leader will brief you on safety guidelines.
  • 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 half the fun is the camaraderie. For detailed info on this style of travel, see our Africa overland page: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/au/africa/overland
  • Sometimes the going is slow – these roads aren't exactly a German autobahn. Patience is key! And a music player, preferably.
  • This is a participatory trip – a fancy way of saying you’re not just along for the ride, you are part of a team! Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and help out with camp activities like food prep and washing up. Plus, everyone knows there’s nothing worse than trying to put up a tent on your own!
  • The African wild comes alive at sunrise, so there will be some early starts. The thrill of spotting your first lion or rhino is well worth any loss of sleep.
  • You will be unescorted for the Zanzibar and Johannesburg sections of this itinerary, but our local representatives will be on hand to look after you if you need advice or assistance.
