Tailor-make this trip

All our sample tours on this website are merely suggestions as we specialise in tailor-making itineraries. This gives you an idea of a possible routing but feel free to add days or change the route slightly. If you have time, you may want to add a third night on safari. It all depends on your interests.

We can also easily upgrade the accommodation used if you prefer. (Similarly we can make some downward adjustments if you need to trim the budget.)
