What is the local Payment?
After years of travelling through Southern Africa- we found that our clients don’t like hidden costs. Therefore we have tried to make our tours as all-inclusive as possible. We include 90% of the meals, all the accommodation and enough activities and safaris to create life time memories.
Unfortunately when you have to deal with 6 or more border crossings- you end up paying a lot of money for cross border fees and visa’s which need to be paid for in cash. In most countries petrol can also only be paid for in cash, so we decided not include the petrol and cross border fees in the tour price. We have found its better for everybody to carry a small amount of money on them, than for our tour guides to carry around suitcases full of cash.
This local payment is the cash you should have on hand to cover the costs of the border crossings, visas, petrol and the 4 Dinners and 12 Lunches that we have not included in the tour price.

There is no need to bring the full amount with you on the first day and hand it to the tour guide- you can draw it out of ATM’s and swop money as you go along on the tour. Please note that in Africa Mastercard ois much more widley accepted than Visa Card- so try to bring a Mastercard credit card or debit card with you.

You will get a guide on how much is needed for each country and border crossing and the tour guide will point out atm’s and “Bureau de change” en-route

Tour Difficulty

Intermediate

This tour is an “Expedition” and has some challenging aspects. We recommend only doing this tour if you are a seasoned rider. Conditions in Malawi and Tanzania can be rough with lots of traffic, potholes, and livestock on the road. You need to be a confident rider. We recommend being bike-fit as there are some longer days in the saddle (up to 8 hours of Riding) needed to cover over 8,000km Through Africa. However, rest days are scheduled regularly to give the tour a good balance. The border crossings can also be long and frustrating, so patience is key.

After years of travelling through Southern Africa- we found that our clients don’t like hidden costs. Therefore we have tried to make our tours as all-inclusive as possible. We include 90% of the meals, all the accommodation and enough activities and safaris to create life time memories.
Unfortunately when you have to deal with 6 or more border crossings- you end up paying a lot of money for cross border fees and visa’s which need to be paid for in cash. In most countries petrol can also only be paid for in cash, so we decided not include the petrol and cross border fees in the tour price. We have found its better for everybody to carry a small amount of money on them, than for our tour guides to carry around suitcases full of cash.
This local payment is the cash you should have on hand to cover the costs of the border crossings, visas, petrol and the 4 Dinners and 12 Lunches that we have not included in the tour price.

There is no need to bring the full amount with you on the first day and hand it to the tour guide- you can draw it out of ATM’s and swop money as you go along on the tour. Please note that in Africa Mastercard ois much more widley accepted than Visa Card- so try to bring a Mastercard credit card or debit card with you.

You will get a guide on how much is needed for each country and border crossing and the tour guide will point out atm’s and “Bureau de change” en-route
