Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Overall I am very impressed with how virtually every aspect of the trip was well thought out and planned. Health and security policies - like very frequent hand cleaning and sanitizing are a good example. This is no doubt due to your careful attention to years of experience. I realize external circumstances do change some plans. Really enjoyed the interpretive walks like the spice plantation in Zanzibar and forest walks in Okavango Delta, and the San village. The Great Falls of the Zambezi (aka. Victoria Falls). All the drives, cruises, and walks to see animals, especially in South Luwanga and Etosha parks. The great views of the planets and stars - especially stars never seen at home. The fabulous easily seen geology of Namibia.- dunes, pans, fossils canyons, layered, sharp or smoothly rounded peaks, vast plains. Also the rift valley with a great “finger shaped “ Lake Malawi. The canoe and mokoro trips. San rock-art and rhino hikes with a most excellent guide in Matobo Park. The great beobab trees. A camp very near the Orange River after 11 days of (beautiful) desert.

Loved the various adventures and not having to arrange the logistics of the adventure. The days were really full and yet there were some down holiday days too. A nice mixture. Good value for your money.

Malawi Tours and Travel Guide

Malawi Attractions & Landmarks Guide

This small Central African country has been mostly off the tourist radar, but offers an off-the-beaten track experience of splendid landscapes including high mountains, deep valleys, and lush forests. Liwonde National Park is the chief wildlife viewing area, with black rhinos, buffalo, elephants, and hippos, but encounters with the friendly Malawian people, who live mainly in traditional villages, are the country’s top attraction.
