Bust out the chic safari attire – our overland adventure begins in cosmopolitan Cape Town! Overlooked by Table Mountain and bordered by the Atlantic, Cape Town is one of the world's most picturesque cities. Before we leave, we’ll take a tour of the Cape Flats, one of the city’s intriguing townships. After that, we’ll head to our campsite on the Western Cape, where we’ll spend our first night under the huge African sky. This is gonna be one for the books!

One of the natural wonders of Africa, Fish River Canyon is around 500 metres deep and over 160 kilometres long, and is the second largest canyon in the world after the Grand Canyon.

This morning we’ll trek to the top of the famous Dune 45 and check out the amazing views of the open desert. It’s a spectacular sight, but be warned – it’s an energy-sapping climb to the top (some dunes are over 300 metres high)! After a well-deserved breakfast, we’ll continue deeper into the park. Be sure to bring your camera – the shifting colours of the desert as the sun climbs higher in the sky make for some great photo opportunities. After a day of exploring, we’ll rest our heads in Solitaire.

[IMPORTANT INFORMATION]

There is a pre-departure meeting at 6pm the day before this trip departs. You should make travel arrangements to arrive in time for this important meeting. Please advise us if your flight is scheduled to arrive after the meeting time. We’d hate for you to miss out.

Accommodation

Camping

On our Camping trips, you will be staying in easy-to-assemble two-person dome tents provided by us. Please try to keep the tent clean, zipped up and remember that no smoking, candles or mosquito coils are permitted in the tent. To keep pests away, we also ask that you not eat or leave food in your tent. Ain’t nobody got time for bugs.

Please note: You must provide your own sleeping bag on Camping trips.

Accommodated

Sometimes you just need your creature comforts. We totally get it. That’s why our Accommodated trips offer the same level of excitement and adventure as our Camping trips – except every day ends with a night in a comfortable bed in a range of safari cabins, tented camps and hostels.

Please note: Trips staying in Spitzkoppe and Serengeti & Ngorongoro Crater will not be accommodated and two-person dome tents with a mattress and sleeping bag will be provided for these locations.

Campsites

Campsites throughout Africa vary considerably. The general standard in East Africa is modest, although most have reasonable toilet and shower facilities. In Southern Africa, the standard is usually somewhat higher. Occasionally we may camp out in the bush (with limited or no facilities).

In addition to meal assistance, there are other odd jobs you will be expected to undertake as part of any trip in Africa. We ask that you get involved in collecting firewood, lighting fires, filling water tanks, loading luggage, keeping the truck clean and even helping with the dishes. Lending a hand has never been so much fun, trust us!

Meals

Your included meals are detailed in the 'More Inclusions' section of this document. While on the road, you will be provided with three meals a day unless otherwise stated. African Overland trips are participation based, which means you will be expected to do your bit for the team by helping with cooking and cleaning up duties. In some places, we will be able to go out for a meal. If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs, as long as you advise your travel agent or Topdeck Trip Consultant when you book. Please be aware that it may not be possible to cater for every single dietary requirement, but we will always try our best to arrange it.

No Tip Necessary

Your Topdeck Crew never expect tips themselves and will not ask for any. That’s not what friends do! We also know how much tipping can cost you. So go ahead and spoil yourself with the money you’ll save by travelling with Topdeck (just don’t forget Mum’s souvenir).

One of the best parts of travelling is experiencing the nightlife and entertainment each city has to offer. However, amidst the fun and excitement, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and personal safety as well. Before you hit the road with us, it’s important to be aware of the following:

When you’re on a night out, remember to avoid walking alone, particularly through deserted areas like beaches and back streets. Always stick together, take a taxi where possible, and keep a note of your accommodation details so you can find your way back to your fellow Topdeckers if you become separated.

In some countries, alcoholic measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Try to keep track of what you’re drinking, and if you see one of your trip mates looking a little worse for wear, take them back to your accommodation. Be cautious when accepting drinks from strangers and never leave your drink unattended.

It’s also important to be aware that what you might consider harmless flirting may be interpreted differently in some countries. Be yourself and have fun, but don’t be naïve, and be mindful of the signals you are sending out so that you don’t find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.
