On arrival we set up camp and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to enjoy the many activities on offer, from walking safaris, night game drives and village walks.


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner


Optional activities:
-Village tour
-Walking safari
-Game drive
What better way to start the day than with a morning game drive along the river’s edge to see the abundance of animal and birdlife inhabiting the area? After the game drive, take advantage of The Warthogs Bar and swimming pool (which is the best place to cool off during the hot hours of the day) and the many activities on offer that you may have missed the day before.


Included today:
-South Luangwa National Park game drive


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
Leaving Zambia behind, we cross the border to Malawi stopping at the capital, Lilongwe, before taking the eastern road to Lake Malawi. Formally known as ‘Lake Nyasa’, Lake Malawi covers almost a fifth of the country’s area and provides the livelihood for many of the Malawi people. Fishermen, fish traders, canoe and net makers all ply their trade on its shores, so expect to see fisherman in their Bwato, (dugout canoe made from hollowed out tree trunk) fishing on the lake at the break of day. We arrive at camp on the lake’s shore in the afternoon and have the rest of the day to swim and explore the beach and surrounding area.


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner


Optional activities:
-Horse riding
-Village walk
While here, try some of the water sports typically available, go horse riding or just relax by the lakeside and go for a dip in its warm waters anytime the need arises. It’s also worth taking the time out to get to know some of the locals, often regarded as amongst the friendliest in Africa, to gain an insight into their way of life.
Please note: Although we do our best to adhere to the campsites described in this itinerary, the crew may need to make some alterations to the itinerary published here.


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner


Optional activities:
-Horse riding
-Village walk
We take a scenic drive through rubber plantations to Mzuzu, the capital of the northern region and the third largest town in Malawi, where we stop for a short while to grab supplies and check out the markets before arriving at Chitimba Beach for the next two nights.


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
Enjoy time on the beach or shop at a large curios market, where you can test your bargaining skills and buy some of Malawi’s famous ornate and carved chairs. Alternatively, take an optional hike to Manchewe Falls or embark on the Chihanga walk with a local guide. These trails are beautifully serene, but can take up to 10 hours so be sure to rest up beforehand!


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
Leaving Chitimba Beach, we travel the short distance north to cross the border into Tanzania. We steadily climb through Tanzania’s Southern Highlands all the way to Kisolanza Farm House. This farm is at an altitude of 1,600 metres, ensuring a pleasantly fresh climate in one of the most scenic areas of Tanzania. Home to the Ghaui family for over 70 years, Kisolanza remains a working farm, which provides organic meat (beef, lamb and chicken) and vegetables to the surrounding markets as well as further afield in Dar es Salaam. The farmhouse is famous for its hot showers, chocolate brownies and hot chocolate that can be bought from a quaint, candlelit bar. Note: time to indulge!


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
Continuing east towards the Indian Ocean and the port city of Dar es Salaam, our route runs through the Mikumi National Park and, with luck, we may spot forest elephant or giraffe feeding near the side of the road. 'Dar' is Tanzania's hub of commerce and industry, and is a hot, humid and bustling seaport city of high rises, colourful markets and Arabesque architecture. We set up camp at our site on the beach just outside of the city centre, usually having time to browse the local markets (best known for its ebony wood carvings) and prepare for our own trip to Zanzibar.


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
Today we ferry across to the magical 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar to spend three blissful nights. Discover the island's idyllic, palm-fringed beaches, winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests, as well as its intriguing history as a major trading centre for spices. For centuries, Zanzibaris would trade with the people of the Arabian Peninsula and ply 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, so keep your eyes peeled when wandering the city's historic pathways. The next four days are on your own watch, so spend your time exploring at your own pace.

Please note: As we leave the truck on the mainland, basic safari lodge/hotel accommodation and breakfast on Zanzibar is included. However, lunches and dinners are your own to arrange. We usually divide our nights here between accommodation in Stone Town and accommodation on one of the northern beaches, but there are no set activities - the time is entirely yours to do as you please.


Included today:
-Ferry to Zanzibar


Meals:
-Breakfast


Optional activities:
-Spice tour
-Visit the former slave market site
-Arabic Fort
-Palace Museum
Don your comfiest walking attire and set out to explore Stone Town on foot. Get lost in the labyrinth of laneways at the bazaars, and marvel at the array of ancient maritime trinkets, vibrant fabrics and ornate wooden carvings. Be sure to pay a visit to the city’s mosques, palaces, courtyards and alleyways for a living history lesson of this fascinating island.


Meals:
-Breakfast


Optional activities:
-Spice tour
-Scuba diving
-Mnemba Island
-Dhow snorkeling safari
-Massage
Awake to another day in this dreamlike haven. If it's white sand, a sparkling ocean and hot sun you're after, head to the northern beaches and enjoy the Indian Ocean at its best. Try your hand at snorkelling and diving, indulge in some delicious seafood, or simply relax beneath a coconut palm with a cocktail and a good book.


Meals:
-Breakfast


Optional activities:
-Spice tour
-Scuba diving
-Mnemba Island
-Dhow snorkelling safari
-Massage
Variety is the spice of life, and on Zanzibar island, spices are abundant. Embark on a day tour to the nearby spice plantations and have your senses dazzled by the tastes and scents that infiltrate the air.

Time to farewell this picture-perfect paradise. Sneak in some last-minute shopping or relish one last dip, before catching the ferry back to Dar on the African mainland.


Included today:
-Ferry to Dar Es Salaam


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
Departing early from Dar, we head north past the Usambara and Pare Mountains in the Eastern Arc Mountain Range to Marangu, nestled at the base of the famed Kilimanjaro. The camp takes its name from the surrounding area – ‘Marangu’ means ‘full of water’ in the local Chagga language, and the lush green surroundings demonstrate the truth of this. If weather is clear we will gain a view of the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
We drive past the town of Moshi and eventually reach Arusha, a city situated exactly midway between Cape Town and Cairo. This is Tanzania's 'safari capital', and a veritable melting pot of markets, vehicles and people, all nestling in the shadow of the brooding Mt Meru.
This afternoon we enjoy a walk to one of the local Masai villages, a local school and clinic, a small but highly interesting Masai museum, and the snake enclosure at the Meserani Snake Park. It is from here that we prepare for our two night/three day excursion to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.


Included today:
-Masai Village walk


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner


Optional activities:
-Camel ride
This morning calls for a vehicle change-up. We hit the road in a more game park-friendly option and drive west across the Great Rift Valley, entering the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Just try not to drop your jaw as we pass into the park and cruise around the crater rim and down onto the Serengeti plains (we bet you can’t).
Lush and green after the rains and a burnt hue in the dry, this spectacular landscape 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 drive to our designated (but unfenced) campsite for the evening for an unforgettable experience.


Included today:
-Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater excursion


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
Spend the morning game-driving out of the plains, and then ascend the outer wall of the Ngorongoro Crater (after a well-deserved lunch, of course). Pack your warmest jacket, as tonight we camp on the rim of the crater where wildlife also gallivant. At 326 square kilometres in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is Africa’s largest intact caldera and a World Heritage Site. If the view from the rim at 2,400 metres above sea level is spectacular, the site from the crater floor some 600 metres below, will be equally mind-blowing.


Included today:
-Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater excursion


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner


Optional activities:
-Serengeti balloon flight
On the final day of the excursion we descend down the steep, dirt road of the Ngorongoro Crater for a morning of game driving. Keep your eye out for all the major mammals – except the towering giraffes, which struggle to 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, and then pack up our camp and enjoy lunch before retracing our steps to our campsite in Arusha.


Included today:
-Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater excursion


Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
After a last night at camp, we make our way across the Masai Steppe to the Kenyan frontier. Completing formalities at Namanga border post, we drive the last stretch of road to Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, where our amazing tour of Africa sadly ends. Until next time!

[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.
