Basic Style
The best holidays are often those which comprise all sorts of exciting experiences. Not everyone can afford the most expensive hotels or luxurious forms of transport, which is why we have created a basic version of our climbs. Enjoy Africa on a budget and stretch your dollars so you can holiday for longer. On basic trips, you get to experience the real Africa, meet some fantastic new friends and still experience the wonders of this great continent. Accommodation will be in clean 2 and 3 star hotels and camping. Meals will be nutritious and healthy and there will be shared transport. On climbs, your safety is assured with a guide and assistant guide. We ask you to pack carefully (see our equipment list) and not bring excessive luggage. On these trips, we still offer airport transfers so that we know that you are in safe hands right from the start. On safari we usually camp under the stars!
