Accommodated tours make use of lodges, hotels, bungalows, chalets, permanent safari camps, traditional African huts and dorm rooms situated near or inside national parks and reserves, on the foot of mountain ranges or comfortably nestled on the shores of white sandy beaches overlooking the endless ocean or the gentle lapping waters of an African lake. The accommodation varies between 1 and 4 star grading. Some have en-suites, while other venues will have shared ablutions.

The places are chosen for their location, service and comfort. These tours are for adventure seekers looking to experience just a bit more comfort by sleeping in a comfortable bed. Bear in mind, however, that when you travel through some rural areas in Africa, options for luxury or higher end accommodation is not necessarily available. But that is the beauty and nature of an overland adventure tour; the fact that you are seeing areas of Africa that 5-star luxury seekers will never see. Essentially accommodated tours allows for that perfect balance between camping and expensive lodge tours; spending your evenings writing your adventurous memoirs, playing board games and listening to the sounds of Mother Nature.

Although the crew do most of the work, the nature of these tours is not that of a beach holiday. A little assistance from the group can make a real difference as it means that the guides have more time for you and more time to make the tour amazing so getting involved definitely enhances the tour experience. This is an adventure, not a holiday.

You’ll be asked to help out with the following:

• Assist with washing up duties
• Offer your help with the food preparation if time is pressing
• Loading and unloading the truck
• Loading and unloading your own bag
• Help keeping the truck clean (it is your home after all for the next days and weeks)
• Help setting up camp (chairs etc.)

Our accommodation combines all of the outdoors and adventure that a camping trip brings but with the added comfort of bedded accommodation. All you need to bring is your own towel. The accommodation varies from place to place, making use of hotels, hostels, lodge style bungalows, chalets, permanent tented safari camps and traditional huts all with en-suite bathroom facilities. Your en-suite bathroom facilities do include flushing loo and hot water showers.

We do make use of 2-man dome tents and shared ablutions in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater as these are two park sin Africa that currently do not provide affordable bedded accommodation.
