EXPEDITIONS INTO AND THROUGH AFRICA

Although we may still be chartered for shorter expeditions, in 2005 we decided to specialise in extended Trans-Africa Expeditions (our forte) and expeditions to countries of Central West and East Africa.  Our regular expeditions are the Christmas Serengeti and our Trans-Africa Expeditions.

Dave van Graan has successfully completed eight (8) “true” Trans-Africa Expeditions, each with clients.

He is a registered paramedic (ANA 1651) with the HPCSA and this comes in handy on these expeditions as hospitals and medical provisions are few and far between.  Our expeditions are based on camping, and although campsites are utilised as far as possible, true ‘bush camps’, somewhere in the bush (mostly close to the road) and staying in hotels, are often a necessity.  WARNING – our expeditions are not, what has become known as a ‘colonial safari’ – roughing-it is the rule of the day, in order to truly experience Africa…

We are a self-drive company, i.e. your vehicle and your camping equipment – you basically determine the level of luxury with the equipment you take along.  However, we can also provide transport for you in our vehicle should you not have a 4×4 vehicle or should you rather prefer to relax as passenger.  We also offer shorter tailor-made (chartered) expeditions in our vehicle for couples, families, LGBTI and naturists groups alike.

TOURS IN THE LIMPOPO PROVINCE OF RSA

We also run one (1) day to extended period tours within the Limpopo Province of RSA exploring the Soutpansberg and Komatiland Forestry areas.  The tours may include some travelling in the Mpumalanga Province, e.g. the southern parts of the Kruger National Park.

One (1) day tours are usually run from our base, Camp Africa, in Louis Trichardt.  All the evenings on an extended tour, e.g. a long weekend, may be spent at Camp Africa; or at other accommodation en route; or a combination, depending on the chosen itinerary.

Places of interest that are visited (itinerary dependant) include:  Bergpan Saltpans; Thathe Vondo Sacred Forest; Lake Fundudzi; Tshatsingo Potholes; Dzata Ruins; the Big Tree (Baobab); Tshirovha Waterfall; … and so much more…
