“Whole trip was a blast. Definitely a must but be ready for long transfers in a car especially transfer back from Java to Bali.
I would recommend you take your own headlight if you have quality one.
Also ask your guide to leave at least hour or 2 earlier on second volcano and hour earlier on 3rd. Leave yourself plenty of time to go up it will alive you to take breaks and still make to blue flames before people. Leaving early was the best thing we did. All of guide and drivers were very accommodating
Tip #2. Take wasapp numbers from everyone. You might need it if you leave your bag in a car or for other reasons.”

“What an amazing experience! There were just 2 of us on this trek with Bamba so we really had a personalised tour. Nico, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the areas that we were passing through and Machu Picchu. He was also very friendly and supportive (made a huge difference in helping us get through the harder uphills!) and was willing to answer every and any questions we had. The scenery that we passed through was spectacular and it was really lovely to be able to get an insight into how the locals live in the secluded towns we passed on our way. The food (freshly cooked every meal by Chef Victor) was AMAZING and there was no chance of us going hungry.

As very amateur hikers, we had a fabulous time and are very glad we chose this route. Would 100% recommend! Nico was our guide and he was extremely kind, encouraged us through tougher pasts, and answered any and all of our questions. Victor cooked amazing food for us. This trek was the highlight of our trip to Peru. Do it!”

“Great Inca trek with magnificent views of the mountains and Machu Picchu the last day, it is so worth it. Guides are great, very knowledgeable and super motivating as the trek is quite difficult. A big thanks to the cook and the porters too that did an excellent job. ”

Important 

Please contemplate bringing extra spending money for personal expenses during your trip: snacks, drinks, souvenirs, tips and souvenirs. As a general guideline we recommend budgeting US$10-15 per day. Most spending will be in Botswana Pula (for incidental expenses along the way, optional activities, most additional accommodation before/after the trip)  but it’s a good idea to bring along some US$ cash for any international airport taxes or visas (US Dollars in clean, un-torn, post 2006 edition notes). Only Botswana Pula is accepted in Botswana. Don’t forget to allow money for before and after the tour if you are spending time in Victoria Falls.

- Spending money is best carried as cash in Botswana Pula or US dollars (US Dollars in clean, un-torn, post 2006 edition notes). Sterling or Euro can also be exchanged into local currency on arrival and as you travel. Your guide will give general guidance about spending during the tour.

- Currencies are as follows: US Dollar, Botswana Pula.

- ATM machines are found in Victoria Falls, Livingstone, Kasane and in Maun, Botswana although may be unreliable (so we ask that you please do not rely on them).

- Credit cards can be used to pay for some optional activities although fees for use may be higher than you are accustomed to at home. 

- This is a full participation safari. You are asked to play your part in (for instance) pitching and striking camp each day. The safari operates in remote wilderness areas where facilities are few or non-existent and where we carry in and erect (and dismantle) the camp ‘bush’ toilet and ‘bucket’ shower each day. Please also note that the tour involves travelling each day and covers a considerable area: the Best of Botswana is essentially a ‘driving’ tour on mostly 4 x 4 tracks.
