Een comfortabele participatie tour waarbij alles geregeld is, met 11 nachten verblijf in vaste tenten, chalets en lodges met en suite faciliteiten. 1 nacht waarbij er één badkamer per 2 kamers beschikbaar is. Limited Participation: Een noodzakelijk onderdeel van de safari is de deelname aan bepaalde werkzaamheden. Van het opzetten van de tent tot het inpakken van de truck in de ochtend – dit is allemaal onderdeel van jouw avontuur. Je reisleiders zullen alle maaltijden voorbereiden maar we vragen de deelnemers wel om af en toe (op rotatie) mee te helpen met het op- en afruimen en de afwas. Er zijn een aantal lange reisdagen die zeer vroeg starten en dan is het heel plezierig als iedereen zijn steentje bijdraagt en we samen werken om de dag efficiënt te laten verlopen.
Kinderen van 12 jaar en ouder zijn meer dan welkom mits ze samen met de ouder(s) reizen. Wanneer je ouder bent dan 65 jaar is helaas een gezondheidsverklaring noodzakelijk.
Indien je alleen reist en een eigen eenpersoonskamer wenst te hebben komt er €385,- bij.
