Day 1: Nairobi - Maasai Mara Reserve, Kenya
Distance travelled: +/-300 km
Approx driving time: 5 hours


We depart the city early and make our way across the Great Rift Valley to the Maasai Mara National Reserve, enjoying views of the vast vista en route. We travel in small specialized safari vehicles that enable us to have a more intimate view of wildlife. We spend two nights camping on the edge of the Reserve with time to explore the park on morning and afternoon game drives. The sweeping plains, distant horizons, low slung acacia trees, and plentiful wildlife ensure a deeply evocative few days. The "Mara" is crossed every year between July and October by great herds of wildebeest, zebra and other grazing animals in their migration from the adjoining Serengeti plains to the south (in Tanzania). How long they stay is dependant on rainfall and subsequent grass growth in the rainy season. Predators (such as lion, cheetah, leopard) and scavengers (hyena, vultures) follow the grazing animals and this enormous congregation of wildlife forms a spectacular display of Africa’s natural resource. But the Mara is excellent for game viewing at any time of year and regardless of when you can visit we hope to see some, if not all, of Africa's "Big Five" (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard) and an array of other wildlife.

Accommodation: Maasai Mara: Chronicle Tented Camp
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: Yes (Nairobi only)

Day 2: Maasai Mara Reserve, Kenya
Approx driving time: Full day including game drives

We have the day to explore the Reserve in search for wildlife including the "Big 5" - lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo and leopard. We stop for a lunch before returning to our tented camp for the evening.

Accommodation: Maasai Mara: Chronicle Tented Camp
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 3: Maasai Mara Reserve - Nairobi
Distance travelled: +/-300 km
Approx driving time: 5 Hours


From the Mara we make our way back across the Great Rift Valley to Nairobi, where we overnight.
Please note that some group members may be ending their tour in Nairobi on this day.

Accommodation: Karen Camp - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch
WIFI: No

Day 4: Nairobi - Arusha, Tanzania
Distance travelled: +/-270 km
Approx driving time: 5 Hours


After crossing the border into Tanzania at the busy Namanga frontier we arrive at our destination, Arusha, in the late afternoon. Situated mid-way between Cape Town and Cairo, this is very much Tanzania's "safari capital" - a bustling city with colourful markets, shops, vehicles and people, all nestling in the shadow of the brooding Mt Meru (4556m).

After exploring the curio markets, we head to our camp just outside Arusha on the open plains to the west of the city. It is from here that we prepare for our two night/three day excursion to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.

This afternoon, if time allows, we enjoy a walk to one of the local Maasai villages to enjoy an insight into everyday life and traditions of this colourful culture.

Accommodation: Meserani Snake Park - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 5: Arusha - Serengeti National Park
Distance Travelled: +/- 250 km
Approx driving time: Full day including game drives


This morning we transfer to smaller, more "game park friendly" vehicles and drive west across the Great Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbo ("mosquito creek") and enter the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. We enter the park and drive around the Crater's rim and down onto the Serengeti plains. Green after the rains, brown and burnt in the dry, this is home to an enormous variety of grazing animals, predators, and birdlife. Flatter and larger than the Maasai Mara the Serengeti is simply huge - indeed the name derives from the Maasai word Siringitu – "the place where the land moves on forever". We game drive to our designated (but unfenced) campsite for the evening where lion and hyena roam nearby, for an unforgettable experience.

Accommodation: Serengeti National Park: Bush Camp - Camping in twin share tents with basic shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater
We drive out of the plains, game driving en route, and after lunch ascend the outer wall of the Ngorongoro Crater. We spend the night camping on the rim (you may need a jacket; it can be cold at night due to the altitude), where wildlife also roams free. At 326 square kilometres, the Ngorongoro is Africa’s largest intact caldera and a World Heritage Site. If the view from the rim (2400 metres above sea level) is spectacular, the site from the Crater floor (some 600 metres below) is equally enjoyable.

Accommodation: Simba Camp - Camping in twin share tents with basic shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha, Meserani Snake Park
Distance Travelled: +/- 250 km
Approx driving time: Full days including morning game drive

We wake early and descend the steep dirt road of the Ngorongoro Crater for a morning of game driving in this spectacular wildlife haven. All of the large mammals are present except giraffe (which cannot manage the steep slopes leading down onto the Crater floor). After our game drive we ascend to our campsite on the rim for a final view over the Ngorongoro Crater, pack up our camp and have lunch before retracing our steps to Arusha and our campsite at the Meserani Snake Park.

Note: We may enjoy the Maasai walk on this day if we were unable to make this on day 19.

Accommodation:  Meserani Snake Park - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 8: Arusha - Bagamoyo
Distance travelled: +/-560 km
Approx driving time: 9 Hours

This morning we wake early and head south via Moshi to Bagamoyo. If the weather is clear we will be afforded a view of the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak (5.895m). The quaint town of Bagamoyo was founded at the end of the 18th century and was one of the most significant trading ports along the East African coast. Our camp for the evening is situated close by to the palm fringed beaches of the Indian Ocean.

Accommodation: Fire Fly Camp - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 9: Bagamoyo - Dar es Salaam
Distance travelled: +/-60 km
Approx driving time: 2 - 3 Hours


Leaving Bagamoyo we make our way south to Dar es Salaam. "Dar" is Tanzania's main port and is a hub of commerce and industry - a hot, humid and bustling seaport city of high rises, colourful markets and Arab influenced architecture on the coast, accessing one of the most important sea routes in the world. To a majority of travellers, this city is the port of entry to the more exotic island of Zanzibar and other archipelago islands. We set up camp on the beach just outside of the city, take in the balmy Indian Ocean sea breeze, and prepare for our trip to Zanzibar.

Accommodation: Kipepeo Beach Resort - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: Yes

Day 10: Zanzibar Island
Distance Travelled: Ferry crossing

Evocative and exotic, Zanzibar conjures up images of idyllic, sandy, palm fringed beaches; romantic winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests. You will find all of these here - and an intriguing history. Zanzibar was the base of the great 19th century explorers such as John Hanning Speke, Richard Burton and David Livingstone and once was a major trading centre of spices. Indeed the spice trade here is centuries old: Zanzibarians have traded with the people of the Arabian peninsula for many generations, navigating the ocean in simple dhow sailboats, relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence is evident in the architecture and diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town. This influence can be seen right along the Eastern coast - the Swahili language itself is a result of the mixing of Arab and African languages and cultures over many centuries.

Zanzibar’s other history is not so romantic. The island was also a staging post for slaves bought from the African interior, being held before shipping to slave owners in the Middle East. You can still see the places where these men and woman were held - and even a short visit is enough to convey the appalling conditions they had to endure.

Our time on the island over the next 3 nights is not structured and your time is at leisure. Perhaps the best way to see Stone Town is on foot: explore the bazaars for old maritime trinkets, fabrics and wooden carvings, or visit mosques, palaces, courtyards and alleyways of the old town. Spices are grown in plantations nearby and you can take day tours to visit some and have your senses dazzled by the tastes and scents experienced. If it’s white sand, sparkling ocean and hot sun you prefer - head to the northern beaches and enjoy the Indian Ocean at its best. Try snorkelling and diving, indulge in some sumptuous seafood, or simply relax beneath a coconut palm with a cocktail and a good book.

Note: As we leave the truck on the mainland, basic tourist class accommodation (B&B) is included in the tour price but for the sake of flexibility other meals are left for your own account. Typically we spend one night in Stone Town and the next two nights in the north of the island at one of the beaches. Your tour leader will be available to assist if you if you have any questions or need activities arranged.

Please note that some group members may be starting their tour in Dar es Salaam.  Both old and new are invited to join in any group outings.

Accommodation: Stone Town - Safari Lodge or similar - twin/ triple rooms with en-suite facilities

Meals included: Breakfast is included with hotel accommodation

Optional Activities:

Day 12: Zanzibar Island
Browse markets or enjoy hanging in a hammock with a cocktail and a good book. The beach is a great place to catch up with the locals who will pass by selling their wares, offering henna tattoos and inexpensive massages. Round the day off with a sunset dhow cruise or chilling to the tunes from the nearby beach bars.

Accommodation: Kendwa Northern beaches - Sunset Bungalows or similar - twin/ triple rooms with en-suite facilities

Day 13: Zanzibar - Dar es Salaam
Distance Travelled: Ferry crossing

Please note that some group members may be ending their tour in Dar es Salaam.  Both old and new are invited to join in any group outings.

WIFI: Yes

Day 14: Dar es Salaam - Mikumi National Park Area
Distance travelled: +/-290 km
Approx driving time: 4 Hours


Leaving the bustling city and warm Atlantic coast, we drive inland through the Mikumi National Park where we may, with luck, spot forest elephant or giraffe feeding near the side of the road. Our campsite is located a short stone’s throw from the park and we enjoy sundowners at the local bar/ restaurant followed by the evening around the open fire under the blanket of stars.
If time allows we can go on an optional game drive in the late afternoon.

Accommodation: Tan-Swiss Lodge - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 15: Mikumi - Iringa
Distance travelled: +/-220 km
Approx driving time: 4 Hours


We continue our journey heading to the town of Iringa and the Kisolanza Farm. At an altitude of 1600m Kisolanza ensures a pleasant fresh climate in one of the most scenic areas in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. Home to the Ghaui family for over 70 years, Kisolanza remains a working farm providing organic meat (beef, lamb and chicken) and vegetables to the surrounding markets as well as Dar es Salaam. The farm house is a well known spot to camp and is the overnight near our mid-way point for our journey from the ocean to the Malawi border.

Accommodation: Kisolanza Farm House - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
WIFI: No

Day 16: Iringa to Chitimba Beach, Malawi
Distance travelled: +/-550 km
Approx driving time: 11 Hours


After our last night in Tanzania, we head through lush mountain passes, rich grazing land, and banana and tea plantations to the Songwe border post into Malawi.

Lake Malawi formerly "Lake Nyasa" covers almost a fifth of the country’s area and provides the source of livelihood for many of the Malawi people. Fishermen, fish traders, canoe and net makers all ply their trade, and a common sight is that of a fisherman in his Bwato, (dugout canoe made from hollowed out tree trunk) fishing on the lake at the break of day. The lake also has the highest number of endemic fresh water fish species of any in the world.

Note: Although it is our intention to adhere to the campsites described, a certain amount of flexibility is built into our time in Malawi and the crew may make alterations to the published itinerary. Please therefore treat the Malawi section of the dossier as a guide line only.
 
Accommodation: Chitimba Beach Camp - Camping in twin share tents with shared facilities
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
WIFI: Yes

Day 17: Chitimba Beach, Malawi
Relax on the beach, take a leisurely village walk or do the full day trip to Manchewe Falls where, after an 11km hike, you can cool off in a natural bath. The surrounding hills are home to the Livingstonia Mission where David Livingstone worked from for a time while staying in Malawi. The views from here are simply magnificent and well worth the effort of hiking to. For those staying at the campsite, there is a local craft market where you can enjoy learning the ins and outs of the game of Bao, haggle for some souvenirs or enjoy a relaxing day admiring the shimmering waters from the beach.

Day 20: Kande Beach - Chipata, Zambia

Saying our goodbye's to "the Lake", we cross the border to Zambia and to Chipata.  Formally named Fort Jamerson, the border town has a population of approx 98,000, and is the capital of Zambia’s Eastern Province. The town has colourful fruit and vegetable markets and an unexpected number of ornate mosques due to its large Indian community. If time allows, we will stop in Chipata before arriving to our campsite situated a short distance from the town centre.

It is located on Zambia’s southern plateau at an elevation of 1300m with four main highways running north, south, east and west to different parts of Africa.
Our campsite for the evening is set in a tranquil and relaxing setting on a farm.

Day 22: Lusaka - Livingstone
Distance travelled: +/-520 km

We head south to Livingstone and set up camp at the Waterfront campsite on the banks of the Zambezi River, just a few kilometres from the Victoria Falls. At various times of year the spray from the "Falls" can be seen from up to 20 or 30 kilometres away, hence the local name Mosi oa Tunya - the "smoke that thunders". Don't forget your raincoat to keep you and your camera dry!

The campsite management provide information on all activities available in the area (typically these include rafting, canoeing, bungee, abseiling, gorge swinging, horse riding, scenic flights, river cruises), allowing you to plan your time accordingly over the next four nights.

Note:
For the sake of practicality, meals in Livingstone are restricted to breakfasts. This allows you to take on half day or full day activities (some of which include lunch) without having to be back with the group at mealtimes. The Waterfront camp restaurant overlooks the Zambezi River and offers a good selection of reasonably priced meals and snacks throughout the day (allow US$15 -$30 per meal). Relax and enjoy these few days at your own leisure. Alternatively, take a taxi or free shuttle into Livingstone and try the local fare.

Day 27: Victoria Falls - Hwange National Park
Distance travelled: +/- 200km
Approx driving day: 3 Hours


Today we head for the world famous Hwange National Park. This is Zimbabwe’s largest and best known park, and was (in the early 19th century) the royal hunting grounds of the Ndebele warrior-king Mzilikazi.  In 1929 it was set aside as a National Park for the benefit of all Zimbabwe’s peoples. The park covers an area of over 14,600 sq kms and is particularly known for its elephant but contains over 100 mammal species including Africa’s "Big 5" (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo), as well as giraffe, cheetah, gemsbok and the brown hyena and abundant bird species. Hwange is also known for its population of the Wild (Painted) Dog. Late in the day we take a locally guided open vehicle game drive and hope to glimpse some of the wildlife in the park before returning to camp for overnight.

Departing Hwange we drive south to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe's second city. The afternoon is at leisure. Bulawayo is a pleasant city with broad tree-lined avenues and wide open spaces. There is a fascinating National History Museum, which recounts much of Zimbabwe's traditional and colonial past, and near the Old Town Hall there is a lively curio market where you can test your bartering skills. A wide range of handicrafts and artwork are on display here most made locally by skillful craftsmen and women.

Day 29: Bulawayo - Matobos National Park - Bulawayo
Distance travelled: +/- 200 km
Approx driving day: Half day


We explore the Matobo National Park on our half day guided tour. The wind-sculptured Matobo Hills are the site of numerous Bushman paintings and the area holds a special cultural and spiritual importance to the indigenous people. The reserve also has a large concentration of the Black and White Rhino and providing it’s safe to do so our guides will lead us on foot to search for these magnificent animals. Approaching these massive beasts is a heart racing, breathtaking and memorable experience. At such times it may be comforting to remember that rhinos are herbivores. The park also has a dense population of leopard and black eagle and we hope to catch sight of either (or both) these creatures. We also keep a look out for giraffe, zebra, ostrich and a variety of antelope and buck species.

Note: There is an option to upgrade to a full day Matobo tour to include various historical sites. The prices is listed in the optional excursions and can be arranged with your crew on the day.

Day 30: Bulawayo - Great Zimbabwe National Monument - Masvingo
Distance travelled: +/- 430 km
Approx driving day: 8 Hours


Leaving Bulawayo we cross towards the east of the country to the small town of Masvingo. Nearby is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southern Africa: the Great Zimbabwe National Monument. Dating back to 1200AD this place was once the home to an indigenous population of some 10,000 people. A UNESCO World Heritage Site the area holds special significance to the country which took its name. Legend says this was the city where the Queen of Sheeba resided and archeological finds uncovered gold, coins and porcelain from as far afield as Persia and China, highlighting the importance of the city as a trading post. We camp nearby for easy access and ample time to explore the ruins at leisure and with a local guide who will give you basic information of the area. If you have the energy there is the opportunity to trek to the top of the Hill Enclosure to enjoy a wondrous and spiritual African sunset.

Day 31: Mazvingo - Bandula Area, Mozambique
Distance travelled: +/- 380 km
Approx driving day: 7 Hours


Today, we leave early and stop off in Mutare and if time allows stop at the spectacular Birchenough Bridge (named after Sir Henry Birchenough). The bridge spans the Save River on its 400 km journey through Zimbabwe and Mozambique and is one of many scenic features of eastern Zimbabwe.
Once we have stocked up on supplies we make our way to the border point to leave Zimbabwe and enter Mozambique.

Note: Border formalities entering Mozambique can be time consuming and we may be held here for several hours while the paperwork is completed. Your patience at such times is greatly appreciated. We find the best way to proceed is to let officials work at their own pace and wait patiently. Your tour leader will do most of the work but he (she) will be grateful for your understanding if things seem to be taking longer than they should.

Once formalities are complete we make our way to the Bandula area near the Chicamba Dam where our campsite is located within a 550-hectare conservancy. Most people notice immediate differences upon entering Mozambique. Travelling is generally slower and road conditions more demanding. Campsites are not as well appointed. Towns and shops may have fewer goods or less variety. While this can sometimes be frustrating many people find after a few days they find this one of the more appealing and attractive aspects of their overland tour. Overlanding is a adventurous type of travel and these are not ‘conventional’ holidays. We are sure you will enjoy Mozambique but do try to warn you not to expect things to be the same as elsewhere in Africa.

Named after a local tribal chief Gamala Vilankulo Mukoke, the town itself is only 5km long yet hosts numerous activities, and has a lively atmosphere and friendly people. The evening is at leisure to enjoy the town and night life.

A delicious seafood lunch will be served under the shady palm fringes. Basic snorkeling equipment and the park fees are included, allowing you to enjoy your day in full.  With its powdery-white, long stretched beaches, coconut fringed palms, crystal turquoise waters, and superb all-year round temperate climate this place is perfect to relax and unwind and watch the world go by.

Day 34: Vilanculos - Inhambane
Distance travelled: 320 km
Approx driving day: 6 Hours


Today we travel down this dramatic scenic coast via Inhambane to Tofo where we will spend the next 2 nights. Tofo is a small beach town with lovely open beaches, where the pace of life slows allowing you to relax and soak up the atmosphere. There are many activities on offer such as horse riding, snorkeling and scuba. Whale Sharks and Manta Rays inhabit the coastline all year round but are in larger numbers in the summer months (November to March).  Humpback whales usually arrive around mid-June and are present until mid-October. The natural vegetation of the coastal plain is dune forest, but this has largely been replaced by coconut palms, planted by the Portuguese and local Bitonga people to supply the thriving copra trade. There are some exciting bars and restaurants in the area - sample the local seafood, the area is famous for it - and the local beer (called "2M") or else simply relax and enjoy a good read.  You could also take a trip into Inhambane, the second oldest town in Mozambique to explore the local market.

Day 35: Inhambane
Today is a free day at leisure to enjoy the local tropical beaches and the many activities on offer. Nearby Inhambane has a rich history and offers a great opportunity to go out and explore the old city. Climb the ladder at the Cathedral of our lady of Conception Inhambane for fantastic 360 degree views of the surrounds. The local markets are also a highlight with fresh fish, seafood and farm produce on sale. You’ll soon see the mix of Arabic and African cultures that create a vibrant, eclectic style of its own.

If the delights of the ocean are your forte, then head out and explore the reefs and colourful marine life found in this warm watery haven.

Day 36: Inhambane - Xai Xai
Distance travelled: 300 km
Approx driving day: Full day

We leave Tofo and head south to Xai Xai for our last night along Mozambique’s lush coast line. The town of Xai Xai is the capital of Gaza Province and is situated on the banks of the Limpopo River. The Limpopo flows to the south of town in a wide, fertile plain where the main crop is rice. Our accommodation is on the stretch of the beach near the coral reef (which runs parallel to the shore). We spend the night lulled by the sound of the ocean and enjoy the fresh breeze as we unwind from our day.

Day 37: Xai Xai - Hazyview - Kruger National Park, South Africa
Distance travelled: +/-410 km
Approx driving day: 7 Hours

From Xai Xai we cross the border into South Africa, where we head for southern Africa’s premier game reserve, ‘Kruger’ and spend the night outside the reserve. Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form the Greater Kruger, an area of some 24000 sq km. Wildlife is free to roam the whole enormous area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the "Big Five", almost every major African mammal (148 species) is present. There is also prolific birdlife (over 505 species) and over 330 varieties of trees.
This evening we immerse ourselves in the local culture and enjoy Shangaan tribal dancing and singing around an open fire to learn more about these fascinating people.

Day 38: Hazyview - Kruger National Park

Waking at sunrise, we board our open 4x4 safari vehicles lead by a local expert guide and prepare for our full day game drive. Kruger is home to over 505 species of birds, 148 species of mammals and many reptiles which we enthusiastically search for during the morning and afternoon. The impressive atmosphere of the park enables you to understand why it is held in such high esteem amongst explorers from all over the world who visit this park. We take a well-deserved lunch break en-route before game driving out of the park to our accommodation for the night.
