This is a customized extension, and there is no group size limit.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Quality vehicles are an important component of your safari experience. The vehicles provided are designed especially for adventures in Southern Africa, with two goals in mind: comfort during overland drives on sometimes-rough roads, and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. The camps you visit will use several different sizes of Toyota Land Cruisers and Land Rovers. Vehicles typically have 10 cushioned passenger seats: one in front next to the driver followed by three rows of three seats each, though capacity is typically limited to six to nine travelers depending on each camp. Most camps use open-sided vehicles, either with or without a canopy overhead, and each row is raised slightly higher than the one in front of it, allowing for unobstructed views of scenery and wildlife. All vehicles have 4-wheel-drive and are fitted with high-quality imported tires to enable us to press on through rough spots. As is the case with all of our vehicles, these safari trucks are enhanced with specialized suspensions to ensure the most comfortable ride possible.
Our Private Leaders
Accommodations, meals and drinks as specified in your confirmed proposal (included at most safari camps), road transfers as noted in the itinerary, scheduled daily wildlife drives and activities as described in the itinerary, services of local camp guides and staff at each stop, and all park, camping and conservation area fees and taxes.
Travel to and from the start and end point of the trip, any meals and drinks not specified in your confirmed proposal, services of an NHA Expedition Leader (can be booked upon request at an additional cost), private vehicles if required for children, gratuities, passport and visa fees, optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, any increase in park, camping or conservancy fees, optional travel insurance, and required medical evacuation insurance.
A safari vehicle frequently offers a bumpy ride. Wildlife drives often involve long hours of sitting and occasionally, bouncing around. While we don't consider this strenuous, it can be uncomfortable and may pose a physical demand on the body. All travelers must be able to climb into and out of raised 4x4 safari trucks. They must also be able to walk to and from the vehicle to our camp accommodations, which sometimes involves walking over uneven ground or on boardwalks. Additionally, while any short walks (if feasible given the conditions) are considered optional, you will get the most out of your safari experience if you can walk a mile or two over uneven ground without assistance. Days spent on safari can be long, as mornings typically start before daybreak and evening meals are served after sundown. We recommend that all travelers have an adventurous spirit, as they will often enjoy the closest animal encounters.
Important Information About This Trip
To arrange this custom extension, we will check camp availability for your chosen dates. While you will be traveling independently, you may accompany other guests from each camp as well as share a naturalist guide on wildlife drives, walks and other activities. Our recommended accommodations are located in areas that limit the number of people while showcasing the best of the region's natural beauty and wildlife. These camps and lodges combine comfort and style with the highest quality nature and wildlife experience. Depending on the time of year and the movement of wildlife, camp selection will heavily influence the quality of your safari. Our team of professional safari consultants can help you choose the best camp combination for your specific dates. Call our experts at 800-543-8917.
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
