DZGA Kitty Details

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.

Historic Ethiopian Highlands

This is overlanding at its finest – a pioneering expedition through the rugged country of Ethiopia, taking in magnificent sites such as the churches of Lalibela, hewn out of rock, or beautiful monasteries on Lake Tana which house the mummified remains of ancient emperors. You’ll visit: the Blue Nile Falls, second largest in Africa, where the Nile cascades through dramatic gorges before continuing its course all the way across Sudan and Egypt; go trekking in the rugged Simien Mountains – home to the extraordinary gelada baboon. You end your trip in the thriving capital Addis Ababa.
