From South Africa’s commercial capital, Johannesburg, we travel to South Africa’s famed Kruger National Park, passing panoramic scenery and dramatic escarpment views. From the dwarf mongoose to the Big Five, almost every major African mammal (over 145 species) is is free to roam the enormous area of the park, which also boasts prolific birdlife and over 330 varieties of trees. Over two nights within the Kruger area, we have the chance to enjoy the spectacle of Shangaan tribal dancing and singing, as well as a full day’s game drive in the park itself to spot as many animals as possible.

Included today:
-Shangaan cultural evening

Meals:
-Dinner
Keep watch for as many of Africa’s diverse wildlife as you can. Lions, elephants, buffaloes and giraffes are a pretty safe bet, while cheetahs and leopards are a bit harder to find. Will you be the one to spot these speedy big cats? Make sure you have a list of some of the animals that you can tick off during the full day's game drive (think: wildlife bingo). You'll be the toast of the campsite if you manage to spot an elusive honey badger.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
Leaving the Greater Kruger area we travel north through South Africa’s lush countryside to Tshipise, a town situated in the northern Limpopo province. Our campsite is located at Forever Resorts at the foot of one of Limpopo’s rolling koppies set adjacent to the Honnet Nature Reserve.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
After a refreshing night’s sleep we make our way across the border to Zimbabwe and on to Bulawayo, a pleasant city with broad tree-lined avenues and wide open spaces. Our campsite is located in the Matopos area, a historical, geological and natural heritage site which is surrounded by interesting hills and rock formations.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
Channel your inner explorer today as we head into the impressive Matobo National Park with our knowledgeable guides. The wind-sculpted Matobo Hills are the site of numerous Bushman paintings, so there’s no surprise the area holds a special cultural and spiritual importance to the indigenous people. The reserve has the largest concentration of black and white rhinos in Africa and, provided conditions are right, our guides will lead us on foot to some of the more concealed places in search of these magnificent animals.

Included today:
-Half Day Matobo National Park game drive & wilderness walk

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Matobo National Park full day tour upgrade
Moving on from Matobo National Park we continue north through the town of Victoria Falls before crossing the border into Zambia. Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, our campsite makes for the perfect base to try out heart-racing optional activities including rafting, canoeing, bungy jumping, abseiling, gorge swinging, horse riding, scenic flights and river cruises.

A visit to the nearby Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is an absolute must.

Today we make tracks for Zambia's urban metropolis, Lusaka. A commercial hub and centre for the government, Lusaka is home to dusty tree-lined streets, soviet looking buildings and bustling local markets that ooze African flair. Our campsite for the evening is set in a tranquil and relaxing spot on a farm, far from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
We leave early and take the Great Eastern Road through lush countryside and small villages, crossing the Luangwa River to the South Luangwa National Park. This area of outstanding natural beauty is rightly known as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The concentration of animals around the Luangwa River and its oxbow lagoons is among the most intense in Africa. 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
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.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Village tour
-Walking safari
-Game drive
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 fishermen 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 watersports typically available, take part in some optional 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 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 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 ten hours so be sure to rest up beforehand!

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Livingstone day hike
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
Today we make our way east to Mikumi National Park. This evening we’ll sip sundowners at the local bar before gathering around the open fire and stargazing at our camp, which is just a stone’s throw away from the park.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner
With luck, we may spot forest elephants or giraffes feeding near the side of the road on our way to Dar es Salaam. '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 ebony wood carvings) and prepare for our own trip to Zanzibar.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-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 Arabic 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 a former slave market site
-Visit the Arabic Fort
-Visit the 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
-Visit Mnemba Island
-Dhow snorkelling 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
-Visit Mnemba Island
-Dhow snorkelling safari

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.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Spice tour
-Scuba diving
-Visit Mnemba Island
-Dhow snorkelling safari
-Massage
Time to bid farewell to 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. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end – the trip wraps up here.

Included today:

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.

Campsites

Campsites you will stay in 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.

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.

Please note: While we make every effort to keep these prices as accurate and up-to-date as possible, they are subject to change and in rare circumstances the actual price may vary slightly to what is published here.

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 purchasing, 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.

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, spoil yourself with the money you will 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.
