We at Hippo Adventure Tours book all accommodation, cars, organize the food. Pick up at the international airport Hosea Kutako and drive to the car rental company where excess and insurance needs to be paid before embarking on the journey. Our recommendation is, to also take out windscreen and tyre insurance at the car rental company. Please make sure drivers have international drivers licences. Thereafter all cars are equipped with radios for communication. Drinks and fuel are not included in the tour price. We will stop at a supermarket to shop for drinks and personal items. We will stop at a supermarket to shop for drinks and personal items.

The guide car with an experienced and well trained guide will take the lead, all guests will follow within the speed limit. The idea is to give clients the opportunity to drive their own car but with an experienced and knowledgeable guide taking the lead.
