Tailor-made tours are personalised and offer great flexibility. As opposed to group travel, private tours allow you to travel alone or with your own party. Set itineraries are available which you can customise to suit your own individual interests and needs, or we can compile an itinerary for you from start to finish. Tours are escorted by an English speaking driver-guide in a private vehicle. Tailor-made tours allow for your choices of interest, accommodation and modes of transport and you can decide how long you stay at each destination. Because you have your own driver and vehicle you can be more spontaneous and stop at the local village or craft market en route if time permits.
These tours depart on set dates, they have pre-planned itineraries and involve you travelling with a group of people. Scheduled tours are great value as tour operators can spread the cost of running the tour over a group of people. Accommodation can range from five star lodges and basic cabins, to camping, and tours can range from two to 73 days duration. This style of touring allows you to stretch your budget further but you are restricted to a pre-planned itinerary which offers little flexibility.
Planning a trip to Africa takes time. First think about what you want to see or do most and find out the best time to experience it. That process will highlight when it’s best for you to travel. Next, consider your budget and what style of travel suits you best (options are outlined below). In your planning you will also need an appreciation for distances as Africa is the world’s second largest continent and travelling around it takes time.
