I just returned back from this tour in August 2015 and think it was fantastic.

There was a great mix of safari, beach and more safaris! It was a great way to see some animals, chill out at the beach and then head back inland and see more animals. It was great to finish up at Victoria Falls and spend some extra time there.

Our guide made us feel very welcome and was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. He went out of his way to ensure everyone was kept happy on our tour and was adaptable and flexible to the group. Our driver was also fantastic and ensured we got to our places on time and safely. Our cook was also great and did a good job to mix up the food and ensure we were all kept extremely full! Overall the three of them made sure we were happy and safe and all took the time out to talk to us about their homelands and growing up in Africa which was a highlight.

There was ample opportunity to upgrade along the way, although the company provides sleeping mats so the camping is fine and comfy.

There was a stack of optional extras which are all worthwhile doing, especially at Antelope Park in Zimbabwe and in Vic Falls.

Overall this tour is really great value for money and is a great way to see some of Africa ”  


It was a good trip overall. Sometimes could have used more info about what hikes etc. would be like so we could prepare better ahead of time. The tour guide added some extras that she thought the group might like and the animals were great.”

Overland Safaris for the family

Most of our overland style safaris are only suitable for adults, but if you're keen to take your tribe to Africa on an overland camping style safari, we have a handful of family friendly departures in Southern Africa which are suitable for children aged 6 and over. These safaris are ‘hands on’ and require full participation. Putting up your own tents and helping with the cooking & cleaning is all part of the experience. Our family friendly overland safaris are: Falls to Joburg, Wildlife Beach & Falls and Southern Circuit. Families with children aged 12 and above are also welcome on most of our Lodge Accommodated Safaris and Tailor-made Safaris.
