What are Forty Plus Safaris? by

Forty Plus Safaris are safaris that have been specifically designed for clients over the age of 40. We offer two types of Forty Plus Safaris - Fully Serviced Camping Safaris and Luxury Lodge Safaris. It is important to note that the Safaris are aimed at active clients who want to experience Africa at the ground level, but with a certain degree of comfort and experienced support. The overriding goal is for clients to travel Africa in a safe and secure environment at a great price with like-minded travellers.

Fully Serviced Camping Safaris

The concept behind the serviced camping tours is for clients to enjoy travelling in Southern Africa, without all the hassles of participation and self-drive camping holidays. The safari crew takes care of all the chores allowing clients to simply enjoy the trip and experience the places visited. Clients are not required to participate in logistical or operational activities, such as setting up and dismantling the camps, preparing meals and cleaning up afterwards.

Our clients come from all 4 corners of the World and are generally over the age of 40, yet "Young at Heart". The Safaris are aimed at active, healthy clients looking for an African Adventure. The group size has a maximum of 16 clients allowed which allows for some great group dynamics and one-on-one interaction with the staff.

Food & Drinks

All meals are prepared by the cook using wholesome ingredients and fresh produce, where possible. The menus are carefully planned and only perishables (fruit, vegetables and bread) are purchased along the way. High quality meats are purchased from trusted suppliers (in major towns and cities), then vacuum packed and frozen in our onboard freezers.

Breakfast is usually a continental-style meal comprising of toast with spreads and jams, cereals, yoghurt, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. On game drives a cooked brunch of eggs, bacon, sausages and beans is served. Lunch is usually a light, cold picnic consisting of salads, deli meats, cheeses and fresh bread. The main meal of the day is served in the evening around a lantern-lit table under the stars. Dinners include traditional meals such as braais (barbecues) and potjies (slow-cooked stews) prepared over an open fire. All drinks and mineral water are not included but can be purchased along the way and stored in the cooler box or fridge provided. Tea and coffee is freely available when we camp.

The Guides & Assistants

On each Safari there are three staff members to ensure that things run smoothly, including a cook who prepares all of the meals. The Guides are selected for their in-depth experience of Africa and are a rich source of knowledge about all matters relating to Africa and the African Bush. The tour leaders will ensure you leave the Safari with a far greater understanding of the African Continent and the cultures and wildlife that make up this beautiful continent. The guides are permanent employees and several have been around for 10 years and longer. You will be able to ask the guides almost anything and they will have a ready answer. The safaris are conducted in English, however translators are available on request for larger groups.

The Vehicles

The vehicles are all custom-built Mercedes Benz & Toyota vehicles designed for African conditions on the Camping Safaris. These vehicles have been specially designed to handle the varied roads and terrains of Africa.

Please note that itineraries can change due to changes in local conditions: Travelling in Africa is sometimes unpredictable and participants should be comfortable with changes that might occur, due to unforeseen circumstances. These might take the form of problems with road conditions, weather, mechanical breakdowns or accidents, each of which can delay and change the performance of the safari. However, this is all part of the great adventure of travelling on this beautiful continent.

Camping Equipment

We use large, spacious, comfortable tents, which accommodate 2 people (W2.5m x L2.5m x H1.9m). Each tent is insect proof and equipped with a built-in ground sheet for insulation, as well as two large aerating windows with mosquito nets. Each client is provided with a clearly labelled camping kit for exclusive use during the trip. The kit includes a camping bed, pillow and sleeping bag.

Each vehicle is stocked with a comprehensive set of cooking and camping equipment, water containers, a first aid box and reference library on the mammals and birds of the area. We also carry tables, comfortable folding chairs (with backs) and a set of spare parts on each vehicle.

Accommodated Safaris

The accommodated Safaris are aimed at the client looking for an outdoor experience, but with the comforts of top quality lodges and small hotels situated in scenic locales. The group size is limited to 16 clients over the age of forty, keeping the safaris relatively small and exclusive.

The Vehicles

Transport is in custom-built overland vehicles with slide-down windows that make for great wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities. The vehicles have comfortable high-back seats and a fridge for clients' drinks.

The Guide

On accommodated tours there is one experienced, expert Guide.

Accommodation

Each of the carefully-selected 3 to 4 star lodges and hotels is chosen for its charming setting and scenic location, as well as its excellent service and cleanliness. All of these unique accommodation establishments features en-suite facilities, comfortable beds and full bedding. You do not have to bring a sleeping bag along with you on accommodated Safaris. Accommodation ranges from bush lodgers and boutique hotels to authentic rest camp accommodation inside National Parks.

Food & Drinks

All the accommodated tour options are on a bed and breakfast basis. The well-selected lodges and hotels usually serve fresh continental or cooked breakfasts catering for various tastes. Lunches are for the client's own account and are taken en route at local restaurants and small roadside cafes. In remote areas we stop at local supermarkets where clients can stock up on supplies for a picnic lunch.

Dinner is included or excluded from the tour price, depending on the tour selected. When the main meal is included it usually consists of a extensive buffet at the lodge or hotel. A hearty spread of dishes, including game meat and tasty African cuisine, is served at the buffets which offer starters, mains and desserts. If dinner is excluded from the tour price, then you can usually choose between the reasonably priced buffet ;or à la carte menu of the lodge, with the option of eating out in larger towns and cities. Your guide can assist with bookings at local restaurants, serving a variety of culinary styles.

All drinks are for the clients own account and can be stored on the vehicles in the fridges or cooler boxes provided.
