20 Days Victoria Falls to Cape Town - Camping (NM08)

20 Days Victoria Falls to Cape Town - Camping (NM08)

Countries Visited: Zimbabwe / Zambia, Botswana, Namibia & South Africa.

On our camping tours you will be staying in two-man dome tents. We supply a mattress and you supply your own sleeping bag. The accommodated tours stay in traditional huts, permanent tented camps and hostel-style rooms.

Included are three hearty meals a day, (unless otherwise specified). Vegetarians are easily catered for and they're always impressed by our varied menu. Our guides can produce miracles on a camp-stove. Special dietary requirements can be catered for, but only by special request. In East Africa it is more difficult to cater to certain requirements.

Day 1 Victoria Falls:

Today is your arrival day; please meet your guides between 9am and 4pm at the Savanna Lodge (or other accommodation advised). It's a good idea to arrive the day before if you want to arrange an optional activity for today. Tomorrow morning on Day 2 we will visit Victoria Falls itself.

There are no included meals today. Most people will spend the day White Water Rafting which includes lunch, a not-to-be-missed experience of a lifetime! Vic Falls offers many exciting alternatives.

Choose carefully as almost all of them are really worth doing, speak to your guides or the staff at Savanna Lodge for some advice. Please be aware that you cannot use credit/debit cards in Zimbabwe, so cash (Rand or USD) is best. The prices of the activities are listed at the beginning of this dossier so you can make sure to bring what you need.

Our local payment is not a kitty, your food & accommodationare included in the tour price. All local payment amounts are subject to change without notice. Changes are very rare & are normally due to a sudden or unexpected price increase by a local service provider or National Park.

Single Supplement:

All of our tours are priced on twin share accommodation. The single supplement is not compulsory on our camping tours but if you want your own tent you need to pay the single supplement. If you are booking one of our accommodation tours alone you have to pay the single supplement. There are a maximum of 4 single supplements available on all tours.

Health:

All people who join an adventure tour need to be in good health. Medical facilities are not always available. If you have a specific medical condition it is compulsary for you to advise us before departure. Malaria is a real concern in many areas of Africa, especially during the rainy season.
