Fitness Level

Africa

To get the most out of your Small Group Touring Co. tour, you will need a good level of fitness. Our Africa tours require you to be able to walk at least 2-3 hours on uneven ground and climb several flights of stairs. It’s not every day that you come face to face with Africa’s natural beauty, local wildlife and bustling city centers in the continent’s harsh environment. We want you to be able to soak up every moment of your tour and create lasting, fond memories of your time in Africa. If you are affected by dusty conditions, please ensure that you come prepared and are fit enough to cope with the conditions.
