This trip is an overland trip run in an overland truck. In addition to paying for your trip, you're require to make a separate payment to your tour leader at the start of the trip, usually in USD. Kitties are flexible and change as prices are updated. Therefore you should check the latest kitty amount on this website before you depart.
A kitty is a group fund which covers all accommodation, meals while camping (not in hotels) and activities listed as included. It's a system unique to overlanding to provide the maximum flexibility and best value on the road (you get everything at cost price!). The kitty is your money, not ours, so any amount left over is divided among the group as a refund.Close

Our Raw tours are best suited for those with a sense of adventure, are willing to step outside their comfort zone and don’t mind being thrown in at the deep end. For independent travellers who want to travel with others. Just the ticket for those aged between 18-35 or anyone young at heart who has an open mind, an eye on the budget and a nose for adventure. Authentic experiences that expand the mind rather than hold the hand.
The Rio Carnival is the greatest party on earth - an amazing spectacle of colour and costumes set to the sultry sounds of samba music. It's a once in a lifetime experience, joining thousands of Cariocas in a six-day frenzy of dancing and celebration. We arrange much sought after tickets to the Sambadrome and also can arrange optional excursions to Corcovado (the Christ the Redeemer Statue) and to the Sugar Loaf Mountain.
This is our most basic and independent package, which includes entrance to the Sambadrome and hotel accommodation in a good tourist class hotel in flamengo, a safe quiet area of central Rio, within easy walk of the metro. It is an ideal place to be located if you value your independence.
It is also the package that we include into our overland tours that include the Rio Carnival, but for those of you travelling on one of our overlands, it build this package in at a hefty discount.
We also offer various other optional activities which must be requested before carnival starts, please click on the following link for more information or see the trip notes Optional Activities - Overland Package
