What to Expect
Moderate activity level
Very Different Cultural Immersion

Each Vantage Adventure is designed to help you fully experience local culture and to get out and explore while keeping active. We find these are the two most fulfilling and rewarding ways to transform any trip into an adventure, and into the experience of a lifetime. To that end, we’ve rated each trip to indicate the level of cultural immersion and physical activity, with “1” being the lowest and “3” being the highest.  

PACING

  • You’ll visit 6 destinations in 2 countries in 15 nights, with seven 2-night stays and one 1-night stay
  • There are seven transfers between destinations and several 5- to 8-hour days in safari vehicles
  • All transportation is conducted by motorcoach and 6-passenger wildlife safari vehicles, providing guaranteed window seating with pop-up roofs for photo-taking

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

  • This trip is rated active and not wheelchair-friendly or appropriate for passengers with neck or back troubles
  • There is easy to moderate walking on this adventure, but travelers should be able to walk 1-2 miles unassisted. 
  • Travelers who use CPAP machines should be aware that the rugged and bumpy conditions we’ll experience on some of the roads we’ll use to transfer between destinations have caused damage to (and even broken) many machines. In addition, while electricity is available everywhere you will go, it is not always reliable. Distilled water is generally not available, either. We will certainly be as careful and accommodating as we can, but travelers who use CPAP machines should be aware of these facts when considering a safari

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION

  • Vantage will provide African safari bags for this journey, as there are weight and size restrictions on luggage in the vehicles. Roads in East Africa can be very poor and rough, especially after rain.
  • Travel speed throughout your African safari tour is greatly reduced for safety and comfort, and distances can be tiring and very bumpy at times.
  • You will travel by small coach in Nairobi and 4x4 Land Cruisers with pop-up roofs in Kenya and Tanzania. On safari game drives, you will spend 5- to 8-hours in safari vehicles. 
  • All transportation is conducted via motorcoach and 6-passenger wildlife safari vehicles, each providing guaranteed window seating with pop-up roofs for photo-taking. Vantage will provide African safari bags for this journey, as there are weight and size restrictions on luggage in the vehicles.
  • Roads in East Africa can be very poor and rough, especially after rain. Travel speed throughout your African safari tour is greatly reduced for safety and comfort, and distances can be tiring and very bumpy at times.
  • Surfaces encountered will include dirt roads, paths, paving stones, and tile. Rough roads mean bumpy rides, so this tour is not appropriate for passengers with neck or back troubles. 

Important Notice: The above day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Vantage Adventure Leader or regional expert.

Please Note: The hotels listed are preliminary and subject to change. Although we contract our hotels a year in advance, unforeseen situations do occasionally occur. Should it be necessary to change a hotel, one of equal quality and value will be substituted. You will receive verified hotel information with your final itinerary.
