Travel is in our fully equipped expedition truck and it’s camping all the way. Each day is different – sometimes we may spend the whole day driving from one place to the next, sometimes we spend 2 or 3 days in one place eg Victoria Falls, so you have time to bungee, white water raft, horse-ride etc! All these kinds of activities are optional.
We provide cooking equipment, eating utensils and tents, all you need is your sleeping gear and personal stuff. The Oasis truck is fitted with comfortable coach seats and tarpaulin sides that roll up so you can see all that wildlife. And then there’s the ‘beach’, a raised area at the front with mattresses and an open top so you can sit up and get a panoramic view of Africa or relax and top up your tan. Everyone in the group mucks in with shopping for food at local markets and stores, cooking over the camp fire and cleaning the truck. The trip is led by two Oasis crew all the way, a tour leader and driver and they’ll help you get the most out of your trip. Don’t worry about joining the trip on your own – many do and you’ll soon find you have friends for life!
