You came to see animals, right? Today it's all about the 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 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.

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.

The town of Xai Xai is situated on the banks of the stunning Limpopo River, which flows in a wide, fertile plain where rice is predominantly cultivated.

Onwards to the dramatically beautiful region of Inhambane, know for its world-class scuba diving. This place packs some spectacular reefs and (almost) guaranteed manta ray sightings.

Take advantage of Inhambane's naturally stunning surrounds by setting out on a jam-packed day of optional horse riding, snorkelling and scuba diving. The natural vegetation of the coastal plain is dune forest, which has mostly been replaced by millions of coconut palms, planted by the Portuguese and local Bitonga to supply the thriving copra trade. Tofo is home to loads of fun-loving bars and restaurants, where you can sample the local seafood and throw back bottles of 2M (the local beer) which the area is famous for.

The park covers an area of over 14,600 square kilometres and is particularly well known for its 'Big Five' population (hint: leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo).

Post Victoria Falls gazing, you have the chance to explore the area at leisure. Choose to cross the border for a day to visit the neighbouring town of Livingstone in Zambia; or take a leap of faith bungy jumping to the foot of the falls.

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 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.

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.

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.
