(10/11) ''Africa – continent of contrasts'' South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana 15 days
It is a trip for experienced and tenacious travelers of unsaturated nature. The adventure at every turn and plenty of experience. In addition to breakfast in the hotel restaurants, we prepare daily meals according to African cuisine. Sometimes we find ourselves isolated from civilization, sometimes away from the nearest village, so to make expedition successful, we expect from you understanding and active participation in events. Bring sleeping bag, which sometimes you will need, also flashlight, binoculars, mosquito spray, sun protective lotion, cap or hat. Occasionally we plan to dance at the fire, but the suits are not welcome. Do not forget a swimming suit-the darkness will not be necessary. Take as little luggage as you can, you will have to carry it yourself. A small backpack to pop trinkets very useful
