Is This Trip Right for You?
This is an active trip. Our small group covers a lot of ground each day, and we spend most of our time driving over roads that are often rough and bumpy. Game drives will be performed in small safari vehicles or boats that cannot be air conditioned. Only "bush toilets" are available during game drives. Some of our tours require walking or stairs between huts or tents. Small boats, a mokoro canoe, and our safari vehicles require agility to embark and disembark. We have many early mornings. Visitors to Zimbabwe and Botswana are encouraged to consult their health care providers regarding malaria prophylaxis. We suggest you check with your health-care provider before signing up for this tour.

Oh my gosh.....how much time do you have for me to tell you how wonderful it was. I wish I had done it 20 years ago when my limbs were stronger and my energy level higher. "I went to Africa" and I'll never be the same. I now know how it feels to be awed and have moments that take your breath away..... Many thanks for an experience of a lifetime...Gate 1 and Discovery Tours "rules"Nancy M. Jax Bch, FL
We had a fantastic trip to South Africa. For all of us it was a lifetime experience. Every stop, every meal and all the adventures will forever be a memory to tell all our friends and family. We saw every animal we had previously seen in zoos except for cats. They seemed to be hiding but we heard them roaring at night. Elephants, Hippos, Giraffes, Wart hogs Wildebeastes, crocodiles, Cape Buffalo, Zebras, Elands, Impalas, and many beautiful birds. All in large numbers. Everyone we encountered, treated us as if we were royalty, but particularly our guide for the whole trip Roger. He saw to our every need and by the end of the trip we felt like he was family our at the very least an old friend. For all of my family, thanks to Gate 1 for an amazing trip, and cannot wait to do another with you.William G. Gastonia, NC
The trip was absolutely perfect and an amazing experience. Our tour guide, Tesse, was extremely knowledgeable and just created an unforgettable trip for all. She has such a love for Africa and did a beautiful job of sharing this. The group meshed and we all want to do a Discovery tour to the Serengheti in a few years together. The accommodations and food were fantastic. We will highly recommend your tour to friends and acquaintances.Jean J. Tucson, AZ
