13 breakfasts; 11 lunches and 6 dinners are included in the holiday price. On free days or where there is a variety of dining options it makes sense not include meals other than breakfasts in the holiday price leaving the choice to you. In practice on this holiday this means you will pay directly for a total of 8 dinners and 2 lunches. We recommend you budget £10 - 15 for each of these meals.
In Johannesburg and in Victoria Falls the group will stay in comfortable tourist standard hotels in twin rooms with en suite facilities. In the Khama Rhino Sanctuary we stay in twin room chalets with shared bathroom (one bathroom for 2 rooms). In the Moremi Game reserve and at the Makgadikgadi Pans we stay in tented lodges with en suite facilities. There are a total of 4 nights at Maun and Kasane where we stay in lodges in twin rooms with en suite facilities, and we have 2 nights wild camping in the Okavango. At the majority of the places we stay we will have the use of a swimming pool.
Years of safari experience have been put into the design of the trucks. They are built to comply with the latest South African transport and safety regulations. Your comfort is catered for with individual seats (with safety belts), ample legroom and large vertical sliding windows for unobstructed viewing and photography.
There are roof hatches for excellent 'open' views and an integral cab and passenger compartment so contact with the driver is easy. Each truck also has large packing compartments, a built in kitchen, freezer, drinking water tank, interior lights and a gas stove (to minimise use of wood and destruction of forest areas). There is a USB point to charge cameras as well. A cool box is on the truck so we have access to cool drinks during the drives. We also use minibuses for some small group safaris. All of our vehicles are bought new and serviced by Mercedes and Toyota agents, thus ensuring trouble free touring with backup support in practically every town in Southern Africa.
