This tour is operated in partnership with our sister company Grand American Adventures (GAA), as such the group may be a mixture of Exodus and Grand American Adventure clients.
This trip is booked through Exodus and you will receive the same award winning customer service that you are used to. GAA operate with the same core principles used by Exodus and champion the benefits of small group travel.
There are some long drives involved and a substantial time difference. By North American standards the journeys are not considered to cover a big distance, but on some days the time 'on the road' will be approximately 6 hours.
This is a participatory camping trip - you will be expected to assist with setting up tents, helping with the shopping and cooking, washing up after meals, etc. Most families greatly enjoy the team feeling that comes from getting involved with these activities. There is a wide choice of activities on this trip to cater for the whole family, so we hope that there will be something for everyone!

Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
Mixed Activities: Activities may range from the ordinary (for example walking, cycling or whitewater rafting) to the damn right extraordinary (including caving, camel riding or canyoning).
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
All Exodus trips are active but some may have different activities scheduled every day. Activities we offer include kayaking in Slovakia, trekking in the Drakensberg, cycling in the Tuscan countryside or canoeing along the Zambezi River.
