Fitness & Health
All travel involves some physical exertion, even non-trekking tours. Altitude, extremes of heat and cold, the duration of a trip or difficulty of terrain are all factors which affect people differently. However, most of our trips are designed to be within the capabilities anyone who enjoys good health and most importantly adaptable. If the trip you’ve chosen involves long distance trekking as an integral element, then you should exercise regularly to prepare yourself physically and mentally for an active outdoor experience.
Our Safari group size varies depending on the nature of activity and is indicated on each tour. Anyone who enjoys the rewards of exploratory travel will appreciate the great feelings of freedom and personal fulfillment such trips inspire. English is the common language spoken but we also outsource good guides who speak other languages when need arises.
Depending on the objectives of the tour we use a variety of transportation, often on the same trip. Every effort is made to use the means of transportation described in our itineraries. However, sometimes a specific mode of travel may have to be changed. We’ll do what we can to minimize the effects of any changes or delays brought about by flights, weather conditions, etc., but we cannot be held responsible for unexpected delays or changes in travel plans.
when camping we provide all necessary equipment. However, you may need to bring a sleeping bag, towel and other personal gear, if this is specified for your trip. We use 2-4 person tents (unless stated otherwise) and camp meals are included while camping or trekking. Meals are usually prepared by our own cook.
Hotel/camp rooms are provided on a shared basis, usually double, twins or triples with in-room toilet facilities. In general, a room should be vacated between 10am, irrespective of trip arrival or departure times.
All our tour prices are based on shared accommodation, but single rooms can be arranged upon request and payment of a single supplement.
Special meals can be pre-arranged and dietary restrictions can be accommodated subject to advance notification. We maintain high standards of food and water safety during our trips.
Most of the Adventure trips pass through very remote and undeveloped areas where lifestyles and conditions are very different from what visitors are accustomed to. The unpredictable nature of such travel is exhilarating, but it’s not for everyone. A trip maybe unexpectedly delayed or forced to re-route for various reasons, climatic, to mention the obvious.
