called bush tours can be undertaken both, as self-
drive tours as well as guided. The route itself
makes the difference to other tours, because it naturally leads through remote areas
which are only passable with off- road vehicles.
Far off the beaten track and the usual infrastructure
That needs to be well prepared: Suitable vehicles and equipment, catering, technical and geographical knowledge, as well as a good sense of orientation (...even a GPS device can fail...), sufficient driving skills, and sufficient knowledge of the climatic condi-
tions to assess correctly.
Of course, you should also know the entry require-
ments for the countries in question.
Some routes can be easily driven with just one vehicle - on others, you should travel with at least two vehicles for safety reasons, because it may take days for someone to help you in an emergency.
However, you will experience the wilderness adventure as you can only if you move yourself in the middle of this wilderness.
Bush tours lead through areas in which dangerous big game - such as elephants, buffalo, rhinoceros, lions, leopards, crocodiles, hippos ... etc. occurs moving
freely and there are hardly any fences - even not around the camps.
Therefore you should keep your eyes open.
