Questions of Overland Safari
Do I have to do chores on tour?
Most overland tours are limited participation tours and your participation in chores is limited: taking turns to assist with washing-up duties, putting up and taking down your tent and loading your bags.
What meals do we get on an overland tour?
We cater for vegetarian, halaal and other dietary requirements in Southern and East Africa. Just let us know in advance and we will be able to organise your preferred meals.
Tour guides are trained to cater for different types of tastes. This is a unique adventure in itself where you get to dine under the stars with your newfound friends and experience the real sights and sounds of Africa!
They do have meal plans which they should stick to, to ensure that there is variety on a day to day basis.
As breakfast is served very early in the morning (if there is driving or activities to be done) it is a simple but filling breakfast: Tea and coffee, breads and spreads, cereals, yogurts, fruits and on occasion, when there is time for a later breakfast, guides will serve a hot breakfast of scrambled eggs, porridge, bacon or beans.
Lunch is generally served at a picnic spot next to the road en route to a destination. As the guides only have approximately 45 minutes to get everyone off the truck, prepare lunch and then get everyone back on the truck again.
Lunches consist of sandwiches and salads (rice salad, pasta salad, tuna salad or green salad) which are quick and easy to prepare but which are quite filling.
This is when the guides get time to prepare a delicious meal and they focus on a substantial protein, vegetable and carbohydrate dinner. We serve traditional cuisine consisting of braais (BBQ), potjie (stew), bobotie (mince), spaghetti and fish and chicken dishes.
