Nights are spent camping in the National Park (Camping will be done in appropriate areas with ablution blocks and warm showers) while all meals are prepared by the accompanying chef. In Lusaka we will be lodging in a good level accommodation.
Motorcycles and assistance included in the organization:
We will be using our “Big five” motorcycles, reliable Honda Transalp 600cc completely refurbished and properly equipped for on- and off-road stretches.
The group will be led by a motorcycle-riding professional guide and will be followed by a 4×4 support vehicle that will offer assistance, carry all luggage and camping gear, as well as motorcycle passengers who might decide to “take it easy” for a day or two.
