Itinerary disclaimer

Occasionally our itineraries are updated during the year to incorporate improvements stemming from past travellers' comments and our own research. The information given in this itinerary may be slightly different to that in the brochure. It's very important that you print and review a final copy of this Essential Trip Information a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans. If you have any queries, please contact your travel agent or our staff in Australia. We are here to help you!

Please note that while we operate successful trips in this region throughout the year, some changes may occur in our itineraries due to inclement weather and common seasonal changes to timetables and transport routes. This can happen with little notice so please be prepared for modifications to the route. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary from time to time.

ROAD CONDITIONS AND INFRASTRUCTURE IN AFRICA:
Roads in Africa are often in very poor condition, which makes it hard on our vehicles. Our vehicles are serviced regularly and are generally in good condition, but breakdowns can and do happen. Sometimes the going on this trip is quite tough, the distances covered fairly large and some of the roads and tracks are not exactly smooth or free from dust, but the rewards are exceptional. The travelling times indicated in our Trip Notes is just a rough guide and is dependent on various factors that may be outside our control, such as road conditions, weather and time spent at borders which is what dictates our drive times.

It is also important to note that our vehicles are not air-conditioned, but all vehicles have windows that can be opened to allow for fresh air.

DRIVE TIMES:
The travel times listed in the day to day itinerary are a guide only. Please be aware that delays may occur and please be patient - it's all part of the experience afterall!
The travel times do not include time spent on game drives as these can vary with each departure.

Essential Trip Information

Important notes

SINGLE SUPPLEMENT:
An optional single supplement is available on this trip. Please Note: the single supplement does not apply to the nights spent on the Houseboat (2 nights) or at Dqae Qare San Lodge in Ghanzi.

HOUSEBOAT:
It is important to know that the cabin sizes in the houseboat are smaller than a standard room. It would be best to pack a day pack for these 2 nights and leave any excess luggage with the truck. This will make it easier for you to get on and off the houseboat and to store a day pack as opposed to your backpack.There are no ensuite rooms on the houseboat, so the bathroom facilities will be shared.

DQAE QARE SAN LODGE:
The lodge supports the local San D'Kar community and is owned and run by the San Bushmen people. This is a unique, cultural Kalahari experience and the standard of accommodation may be below what you would expect on a Peregrine trip - but the experience is well worth it.

FINISH TIME:
Your tour ends on the final day in Cape Town. Please do not book any flights out of Cape Town prior to 10pm on this day.

Medical and health information

Vaccinations may be required or recommended for this trip so you should consult with your travel doctor to obtain the latest up-to-date information. It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain any vaccinations or preventative medicines for the countries you are visiting – or any which may be required by your home country upon your return.

For travellers from Australia and New Zealand, we recommend the Travel Doctor-TMVC clinics (seehttp://www.traveldoctor.com.au or phone 1300 658 844 for an appointment in Australia). Travellers from countries other than Australia and New Zealand should contact similar organisations or their travel doctor for advice. General health and vaccination information is available to all travellers at
http://www.traveldoctor.com.au/travelreport.asp?UnqID=0.4630191&amp;Page...

Some vaccines require more than one dose, so arrange for your visit at least 4-6 weeks before you travel.

Malaria: There is no vaccination against malaria, which is transmitted by mosquito bites and is a risk in many less-developed tropical areas in Africa, Latin America and South East Asia. Protection against mosquito bites is essential and where the risk is considered high, anti-malarial medications are recommended. Anti-malarial medications should be discussed with experts as there are different medications available and not all medications suit all people or all destinations. Where malaria is considered prevalent in mountainous regions we prefer that trekkers to altitude try to avoid the use of mefloquine (Lariam) if possible.

Accommodation

Comfortable hotel, Comfortable lodge, Houseboat, Cultural village

Transport

4WD vehicle, Custom-built overland vehicle, Houseboat, Mokoro, On foot, Private vehicle

Money matters

It is difficult to give an accurate recommendation, as we all have different shopping, eating and drinking requirements so we remind you that this is a guideline only. We suggest that where you need to purchase lunch and dinner, you allow approximately US$15 to $20 per person per day for these meals. This does not include snacks and drinks. On average, people spend anywhere between US$50 and US$100 on souvenirs and between US$500 and US$750 on additional activities.

Meals

21 Breakfasts, 16 Lunches, 17 Dinners
Budget for meals not included:
USD 480.00

Most of your included lunches will be at a designated road side picnic area or gas station. Your crew will stop every couple of days to buy supplies so that you will always have fresh food and bread. When possible, the crew may stop daily for your bread to ensure it is always fresh. Lunch is prepared from the truck by your crew and clients are expected to clean their plates and cutlery used.

On this trip, we have included gratuities for the essential services that you will receive as part of your tour package. This will cover tips to drivers, specialist local guides (where applicable), restaurant staff for included meals, porters, bellboys and other hotel staff, including room-cleaning staff. This amount DOES NOT include a tip for your tour leader/safari leader, so you may wish to set aside some funds for this.It is customary to tip your tour leader/safari leader for outstanding service throughout your trip. The amount is entirely a personal preference, however as a guideline US$4-US$5 per person, per day, can be used. Of course you are free to tip more or less as you see fit, depending on your perception of service quality and the length of your trip.

You may also wish to put aside some money for your own tipping, such as when you are doing our own optional sightseeing or activity that involves local guides and/or drivers or when joining in optional groups meals or dining out on your own. In these instances, we advise you to carry small notes of local currency each day to make tipping easier. The amounts can vary greatly according to destination, so we suggest that you ask your tour leader to give you guidance on what are appropriate amounts to tip. With local markets and basic restaurants, we suggest you round your bill up to the nearest US$1. More up-market restaurants we suggest 10% to 15% of your bill.

Please don't tip with coins, very small denomination notes, or dirty and ripped notes. This is regarded culturally as an insult.

BOTSWANA
The unit of currency is the pula (BWP), which is divided into 100 thebe. The pula is a strong currency and any excess currency can easily be exchanged in Johannesburg. Banks, hotels and major curio shops in Botswana accept some major international credit cards, although camps and lodges in the region will only accept payment for bar bills, laundry, etc in local or foreign currency (cash). We recommend you travel with US dollars.

NAMIBIA
The unit of currency is the Namibian dollar. One Namibian dollar equals 100 cents. The Namibian dollar is pegged to the South African rand and the rand is also a legal tender in Namibia.

SOUTH AFRICA
The South African rand (ZAR), divided into 100 cents, is the basic unit of currency of South Africa.

ZIMBABWE
The currency of Zimbabwe was the Zimbabwe dollar. In April 2009, the collapse of the economy led to the collapse of this currency. Only hard currencies (ie. US Dollar, South African Rand) are in use for day-to-day transactions in Zimbabwe.

You will need to take money with you to cover any additional meals/drinks not included in your tour cost. Other costs to consider are drinking water approx. US$1-2 per 1.5 litre bottle, tips, laundry, souvenirs, additional sightseeing and possible delays. It is much better to come with more than you would expect to spend and to end the trip with a surplus, rather than being caught short.

EMERGENCY FUNDS: Please make sure that you have access to at least an additional US$500. This money can be drawn upon in unforeseen incidents or circumstances outside our control (eg. a natural disaster, civil unrest, etc) that result in Peregrine necessitating a change to our planned route. It is always useful to carry an additional amount for emergencies that could happen en route. If there is a medical emergency you are sometimes required to pay at the source and reimbursement will be made later by your insurance company. This is a situation where having a credit card can be useful.

BOTSWANA
Botswana offers modern banking facilities in larger towns such as Maun and Kasane. The commercial banks in Maun are usually opened Monday to Friday from 0815 to 1245 and on Saturdays from 0815 to 1045. There are also a number of foreign exchange bureaus with longer operating hours. The best foreign currency to take with you are US dollars. The South African rand is also widely accepted. Cash can easily be exchanged in banks and exchange bureaus. Traveller's cheques are not recommended as they are very hard and sometimes impossible to cash. ATM machines are not easy to find in Botswana on this tour and should not be relied upon. There are some available in Maun and Kasane that accept MasterCard or Visa connected to the Cirrus or Maestro network. Credit cards are widely accepted for payments, but there may be fees associated with their use. The pula (BWP) is the local currency and also a very strong one; any excess can easily be exchanged in South Africa. There will be very little need to spend money whilst on safari - and few chances to exchange any. If you want some local currency, please ask your safari guide immediately upon arrival and take his advice as to how much you require. You may export up to BWP500 on departure.

NAMIBIA
The Namibian dollar and the South African rand can both be used in Namibia on equal rates. All transactions in Namibia are generally conducted using the local currency. Please note that Namibian dollars are only worth 90% of their face value in South Africa, so for this reason it is suggested that you change your leftover Namibian dollars to South African rand before leaving Namibia. This can be done at most retail outlets and also in banks. All major currencies in cash are easily exchanged at the airport and in Windhoek and other large towns. Cash is certainly the most convenient way to carry money, however please be aware however that most insurance policies will not cover for loss or theft of cash. We recommend that apart from rand, you carry your cash in foreign US dollars. Bring a variety of denominations including some smaller bills and ensure that all notes are in good condition. Notes that are tattered or torn are sometimes not accepted. Small bills (US$1, $5 or $10) can be useful for tips and small purchases. It is advisable not to take US$100 bills or bills that are pre-2006, as some vendors will refuse to exchange them. Visas obtained at the border must be paid for in US dollars cash only. Changing foreign cash (other than rand) can also sometimes be difficult in small towns and you may need to find a bank to complete the transaction. Providing you exchange your money into local currency at regular intervals, you should not encounter any difficulties. Major credit cards are widely accepted in most hotels and shops. In parts of Namibia cash can be drawn from ATMs in local currency. They are most commonly found in major cities such as Windhoek and Swakopmund. Cash can either be drawn on credit with Visa or MasterCard or directly from your savings account if it is linked into the Cirrus or Maestro network. Look for ATMs displaying the Cirrus, Maestro, Visa or MasterCard symbols. Otherwise, ATMs are not readily found and should not be relied on. Please note that your PIN number should be restricted to 4 digits as some ATMs will only allow entry of a maximum of 4 digits. Traveller’s cheques can be changed in banks in the towns although this is usually a very time-consuming process and sometimes we do not have that time available to us when travelling, so we actually do not recommend that you rely on traveller's cheques for funds. Please ensure that you only use banks, licensed money changers or hotels. Do not change money with street touts. This is illegal (and often an easy way of being ripped off). We also suggest you keep your receipts

SOUTH AFRICA
On arrival into South Africa it is suggested that you use your ATM card to access cash in South African rand (ZAR). Alternatively you may change any major currency into South African rand. All transactions in South Africa are conducted using rand. All major currencies in cash and traveller’s cheque form are easily exchanged at the airport. Major credit cards are widely accepted in most hotels and shops. ATMs are widely available throughout the country using MasterCard or Visa connected to the Cirrus or Maestro network. Foreign cash and travellers cheques can be changed in the banks of each town although this is usually a very time-consuming process. For this reason, we do not recommend that you rely on using traveller’s cheques for funds, as there are very few, if any, opportunities to change them when travelling. Please note that if using US dollar cash to change into rand, please do not carry bank notes that are issued before the year 2006, as these are generally not accepted because of rampant counterfeiting.

ZIMBABWE
The Zimbabwe dollar has been withdrawn from circulation for the foreseeable future. It has been replaced with foreign currency - the most convienent being the US dollar and the South African rand. Botswana pula is also accepted for payment of goods and services in the Victoria Falls area. All departure taxes and many entrance fees must also be paid for in US dollars cash. Credit cards are now accepted in Zimbabwe and in some areas you can withdraw US Dollars from the ATM, however this is not always reliable. To get an up-to-date report of the situation, it is suggested that you stop in at our local office on arrival in Victoria Falls. They will be able to assist you with general advice as well as book extra activities and excursions.

On all our tours you will depart Botswana by land border and hence no taxes are applicable.

Any airport taxes are included in the ticket cost of the flight.

Airport taxes are generally included in all international and domestic tickets.

Packing

Please Note: It can get very cold at certain times of the year and often along the coast.

LUGGAGE RESTRICTIONS
The weight of baggage that can be brought on this tour is limited by the packing space and weight restrictions of the truck.

The weight limit for luggage on all of our trucks is a maximum of 15-20kgs per person, plus a maximum of 5kgs for your day pack. Backpacks shouldn’t have an external frame unless it can easily be removed and stored separately to avoid damaging other people’s luggage. We strongly advise passengers to travel with a backpack or a duffel bag, and it is essential that no hard suitcases be brought on tour.

For valuables, like passports, we offer a safe on each vehicle that is shared by all passengers to keep their documentation safe during their journey.

When you pack your clothing, consider the climate at the time of year you are travelling and any specific requirements for your trip as at certain times of the year some of the items suggested in the list that follow may not be necessary. Laundry facilities are available at some camps and lodges along the way.

Below is a general list of equipment and documentation that we suggest you take with you. Please use this checklist as a guide when packing for your holiday.

Safety

It is recommended that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information prior to your departure.

Peregrine strongly recommends the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safe-keeping of your passport, air tickets, cash and other valuable items. Please leave your valuable jewellery at home - you won't need it while travelling. Most of our hotels will have a safety deposit box, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.

Your leader will accompany you on all included activities, however during your trip you'll have some free time to pursue your own interests, relax and take it easy or explore at your leisure. While your group leader will assist you with the available options in a given location, please note that any optional activities you undertake are not part of your itinerary, and Peregrine makes no representations about the safety of the activity or the standard of the operators running them. Please use your own good judgement when selecting an activity in your free time. Please also note that your group leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the trip itinerary if it's deemed necessary due to safety concerns.

FIRE PRECAUTIONS:
Please be aware that local laws governing tourism facilities in this region differ from those in your home country and not all the accommodation which we use has a fire exit, fire extinguishers or smoke alarms.

TRAFFIC AND DRIVING CONDITIONS:
Depending on where you come from please note that drivers in this part of the world may drive on the opposite side of the road from what you are used to. Look both ways before crossing any road. Be aware that traffic can be a little more chaotic than you might be used to at home.

PETTY THEFT AND PERSONAL SAFETY:
While travelling there is always the risk of pick-pocketing and petty theft, particularly in the more touristy cities. We recommend that you exercise caution when walking alone at night and encourage you to walk together and only on main, well-lit thoroughfares. Be particularly vigilant on public transport. Simple measures like carrying your day pack on your front, not hanging your bag over the back of your chair or putting it on the ground and wearing a money belt will reduce any chance that your valuables should go missing.

SWIMMING POOLS:
You may stay at hotels with unfenced pools and no life guard on duty.

BALCONIES:
Some hotel balconies don't meet UK standards in terms of the width of the balcony fence being narrower than 10cm.

SEAT BELTS:
Please be aware that local laws governing transportation safety may differ from those in the western world or from your home country and not all the transport which we use provides seat belts.

A couple of rules

Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on our trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land, but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter and in particular, the local people who make our destinations such special places. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader or local representative has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.

Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.

Travelling on a group trip

As you travel on a group trip you will be exposed to all the pleasures and maybe some of the frustrations of travelling in a group. Your fellow travellers will probably come from all corners of the world and likely a range of age groups too. We ask you to be understanding of the various needs and preferences of your group - patience with your fellow travellers is sometimes required for the benefit of everyone's travel experience. Remember too that you have responsibilities to the group. If you are requested to be at a place at a certain time, ensure that you don't keep the rest of the group waiting. We have found time and time again that the very best trips we operate are those where the dynamics within the group work well - this takes just a little effort on your part. Sharing a room can be a great way to get to know people quickly and make close friends. It just takes a little effort on your part.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory for all our trips. We require that, at a minimum, you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.
When travelling on a group trip, you won't be permitted to join the group until evidence of travel insurance and the insurance company's 24 hour emergency contact number has been seen by your leader.

If you have credit card insurance your group leader will require details of the participating insurer/underwriter, the level of coverage, policy number and emergency contact number rather than the bank's name and credit card details. Please contact your bank for these details prior to arriving in-country.

PLEASE NOTE: Some travel insurance policies are not recognised by some Namibian hospitals; you should check with your provider if their product is accepted in Namibia before you travel and seek alternative coverage where necessary.

Responsible Travel

Travelling responsibly is all about making good choices. It's about ensuring you have an incredible trip while also having a positive impact on the local environment, community and economy you're travelling in. How can you be a Responsible Traveller? See our tips below:

- Choose to travel with a responsible travel company like us! We've already offset the main carbon emissions of your trip, so your footprint is already lighter.
- Consider offsetting your flights when you book your trip/flights with us or your travel agent.
- Bring a refillable water bottle and some water purification tablets (or a Steripen) to cut down on plastic bottle waste.
- Be an animal-friendly traveller. Only go to venues that respect animals by allowing them to live normally in their natural environment. Steer clear of venues that use animals for entertainment or abnormal activities and/or keep animals in poor and unnatural conditions.
- Eat at local restaurants, buy from regional artists and support social enterprises so you can contribute directly to locals and their economy.
- Always be respectful of local customs and ask permission if you want to take a photo of someone.
- Learn a few words of the local language and engage with the people around you.
- Carry a cloth or re-usable bag so you can avoid plastic bags.
- Give back by making a donation to a local project via The Intrepid Foundation.

Share your thoughts with us by completing your feedback form after your trip. This helps us to continue to improve our commitment to responsible travel.

The Intrepid Foundation

The Intrepid Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation set up to enable our travellers to help make a difference by supporting local communities, projects and non-government organisations in the places we travel. The smallest contribution can make an enormous difference and all donations to The Intrepid Foundation are matched dollar for dollar (yes, we’ll double your donation!). We support a range of initiatives – from wildlife protection and environmental conservation to supporting vocational training for underprivileged individuals – all with the aim of helping to improve lives and empower communities across the world to make meaningful change. All administration costs are covered by us so you can be assured 100 per cent of your donation will reach your chosen project. To learn more about the projects we support, ask your trip leader for more information about projects in the region you are travelling in or visit www.theintrepidfoundation.org
