Hi there!
I am planning to book an overland tour from Nairobi to Vic Falls. Does anyone have any experience of any of the companies? - I think, due to my dates, I have narrowed it down to Acacia and Overland Club. However, I'm slightly concerned that at 30, I might be too old for Club Overland? - It is about £350 cheaper - could that just be because they 'rough it' a bit more? The brochure seems to be targeted more at a younger crowd? Also, I am booking through Travel Nation, and they had never heard of Club overland - and assumed it was not a tour operator. Any advice would be appreciated!

I am booked with Overland Club from Nairobi - Cape Town departing on 3 July. I chose them as it was considerably cheaper than most others and the representative was excellent, even giving me a 100 pound discount!!

PS 30 is not old!! I dont think you should choose a company because of your age! Im sure you still know how to have a good time

Hi There, I've just returned after doing a Bukima trip from Nairobi to Cape Town. Absolutely GREAT, the best part was they only carry a maximum of 20 people, we had 15 on ours and we did see other companies with over 30 on board. The other thing was everything was included even the all the game parks. Im in my 30's as well and highly recommend them. Have fun.
