Local Payment & Tour Cost


The tour cost and local payment includes transport in a fully equipped expedition vehicle, road taxes and tolls, services of the driver-leader. Plus use of camping and cooking equipment, campsite fees, entrance to gameparks as specified and two meals a day while on the truck.

In towns or places where the vehicle will be parked up, although the kitchen will be available for you to cook with, food during this time will not come out of the Local Payment. This normally happens in places where we are for a few days; for example, Arusha, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Victoria Falls, Okavango Delta, Swakopmund. At these places cheap food is available at, or near, the places we stay. Generally at lunchtimes we eat at small cafes or restaurants where you can try cheap and tasty local food. If no local food is available we eat on the truck.
