Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your holiday not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are travelling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are travelling through. All solo travellers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travellers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Johannesburg to Victoria Falls tours in Southern Africa

For every week that our passengers spend in Africa, we plant a tree in Kenya through the Woodlands 2000 Trust, a local NGO. The Woodlands 2000 Trust is a wonderful project that provides seeds and seedlings with planting materials as well as land-planning, tree survival and woodlot management services. It aims to increase reforestation and bio-diversity in semi-arid regions, and also to create sustainable and profitable tree products micro-industries that contribute to alleviating poverty.

We believe strongly in low impact tourism and so during this trip we use existing locally owned facilities and camp ground such as the one used in Kruger National Park. By using locally owned and run facilities we are helping the local communities that we visit.

Through choosing to travel with us you are assisting local businesses, job creation, cultural development programs and various environmental groups. Some of the various projects we are proud to support are: The Rally to Read which invests in the improvement of the efficiency and effectiveness of the teaching of literacy skills in rural schools throughout South Africa, and the Chipgingale Wildlife Sanctuary based in Bulawayo Zimbabwe.

I thoroughly enjoyed the vacation.

Read the operator's response here:

On many trips, there is the opportunity for optional excursions which a client can undertake. While we suggest many activities travellers may like to try, there are also plenty that are not promoted, supported or endorsed by us. On this trip, particularly in the Victoria Falls area clients may notice businesses offering optional 'Walk with the Lions' or other big cat experiences. As a company, we recommend that our travellers bypass these activities as it is contrary to our Responsible Travel guideline stating that we 'actively discourage the participation of groups in activities which exploit animals - wild or domestic.' Professional wildlife conservation organisations, including Born Free and the World Society for Protection of Animals (WSPA), advise that habituating big cats to humans can shorten their life and may result in animal-human conflict issues. While there is some merit in the argument that the money that you pay for the activity goes towards big cat research, we feel that the negative impacts on the animals' rehabilitation far outweigh this.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The leader and his team were excellent and we all got on in the group. Seeing lions in Kruger was the highlight.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Ask if they are using a big truck ours was slower than other trucks hence journeys clocked up more hours than advised. Take a cushion or neck cushion for selling in the truck.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes we were very conscious of recycling and supporting NGO local initiatives.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Team leader A plus tzepol deserves promotion as he was enthusiastic and caring towards all his charges.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The Chobe NP river cruise and the adrenaline activities in Vic Falls.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be prepared to travel long distance & basic accommodation.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


More interaction with locals would be good as the only interaction is why they were the guides for our activities. If we could visit local villages and explain more on the local culture would make the tour much more interesting.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


75 out of 100.
