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

Journeys of freedom & discovery. Travelling in purpose-built trucks or 4x4s you’ll see all the highlights but also get far off the beaten track. Led by a professional crew or driver, groups help with the cooking & setting up camp, enjoying a real hands on experience.
Our Basic tours offer superb value and are ideal for those who are happy to forgo some creature comforts in favour of an authentic and fun experience. Under the leadership of a fully trained tour leader, you will enjoy all the highlights and freedom of independent travel with the convenience, security and companionship of a small group.
Travelling from the beaches of East Africa to the magnificent Victoria Falls in the heart of Southern Africa, get an incredible insight into the life of rural Africa together with plenty of opportunity for adventure. Starting in Tanzania, you’ll travel through Malawi, visiting bustling markets and relaxing on the shores of Lake Malawi. Next is the wonderful South Luangwa National Park in Zambia with its prolific wildlife. You then head to the Lower Zambezi wildlife area. Here you explore the river basin by kayak on one of Southern Africa's most exciting activities. The trip culminates in a visit to the unforgettable Victoria Falls, where you can enjoy any number of adventure activities: canoeing on the Zambezi, bungee jumping, elephant riding, or taking a helicopter flight over the Falls themselves.
Border Information: if joining the trip in Dar es Salaam, you will most likely enter Tanzania at Dar es Salaam Julius Nyerere International Airport. There will be an important group meeting today at 6:00pm. If you arrive before that, then you will have a free day to relax at the beach, explore the city centre, or enjoy some activities from the campsite (our truck and leader may not arrive until the afternoon, so please ask the reception about storing your equipment if you wish to go out for the day). Your tour leader will meet you at the campsite reception at 6:00pm for this important meeting. In Dar es Salaam we stay at a beautiful and well-equipped beach camp on the southern side of the bay across from the city. Please note that the first 4 days of this trip overlap with our "YND - Nairobi to Dar es Salaam" trip, so some of the group that come to Zanzibar will leave when the trip returns to Dar es Salaam on Day 5. This is because Zanzibar is part of both trips, so it means customers going all the way through do not go to Zanzibar twice!
Our tailor made adventure holidays will truly inspire and delight the senses and will live in your memory for ever.
