STEER CLEAR OF STAGED SAFARIS AND TASTE REAL AFRICA
With Overland Tour Specialist Africa-In-Focus
For first-time travellers and safari aficionados wanting to experience the grass-roots of Africa, while ensuring value-for-money, Africa-in-Focus offers affordable, small group mobile camping tours throughout East and Southern Africa from just £1,275 per person. Providing everything from 14 to 55-day itineraries, each offering expert tuition and workshops in photography, these exciting overland adventures are a great way to almost exclusively experience the iconic wildlife, striking scenery and vibrant culture of this vast continent.
Offering a breath of fresh air to the stationary, often staged safari camps, intimate groups of up to 16 travellers join a friendly crew of three on board custom-built safari vehicles. These offer exceptional comfort, security and facilities, panoramic side views and personal rooftop viewing hatches. What’s more, vehicles provide twice as much leg-room as similar safari models.
In addition to offering travellers an exciting, on-the-road perspective of real Africa, every tour with Africa-in-Focus includes special complimentary highlights, including game drives, river cruises and visits to wildlife conservancies and national parks. There are so many enlivening experiences available, from wine tasting in South Africa, to trekking with gorillas in Rwanda and taking tea at a local tea plantation in Tanzania.
What’s more, these incredible overland experiences are combined with photographic workshops and tutorials from the expert guides along the way. They will demonstrate how to compose and capture a photograph, about colour theory and the themes and moods in photography. Travellers can explore night photography, abstract photography and learn to take panoramic images from the comfort and safety of the vehicle. There is also the opportunity to download the digital photos to an on board Apple Mac Mini, from which guests can burn their images to CD for safe keeping.
With a plethora of destinations to discover, including Kenya, South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Botswana, Rwanda and Uganda, Africa-in-Focus’ tours are ideal for travellers wanting a participatory and experiential African adventure. Tours include:
