How many people are on you expeditions?

Our groups generally range between 8-12 individuals, depending on the expedition. You will be accompanied by our expedition leaders and expedition management team on each expedition.

Can my friends join in my car?

Yes, if you are OK with it. For a comfortable drive we recommend that there should not be more than 4 people (including the driver) in a vehicle.

WILL I GET TO DRIVE THE CAR?

Yes, you get to be in control of the steering, all along. We wouldn’t want it any other way! However, if you wish to explore the country on wheels but don’t want to drive all the way, we can arrange for a chauffeur as well.

HOW GOOD A DRIVER DO I NEED TO BE FOR ONE OF YOUR TOURS?

You don’t need to be an expert in driving a 4x4 to be part of our adventures. All you need to have is a good driving experience and a basic understanding of machines. Our expedition team will teach you how to drive on off-road terrains during the journey and help you get familiar with the machines.

WHAT TRAVEL GEARS DO I NEED TO CARRY?

Our expeditions cover a wide range of terrains, hence multiple climates. For each expedition you will be given an advisory on the weather and the kind of gear to bring. It’s best to read and abide by the same. Be sure to bring any cameras, iPods, iPads etc that you wish but please ensure they are appropriately protected from the elements.

DO I NEED AN INTERNATIONAL DRIVING PERMIT/LICENSE?

Most countries have varying requirements for the same. You will be notified much in advance about the same. Wherever mandatory you will need to arrange for an International Driving Permit/License.

IS IT ADVISABLE TO BRING CHILDREN?

It is entirely up to you. If you feel that they can enjoy the drives, they are most welcome. The charges may vary depending upon the age of child and hotel policy. Children above 12 years are treated as adults. It’s best to notify us at the time of booking. We do not encourage infants to travel.

WHAT IS THE ACCOMMODATION LIKE?

Our accommodation ranges from ‘interesting’ to quite comfortable indeed. We always try to stay in the nicest place available and we look for things like hot showers and free wi-fi – we are not always successful though keeping in mind that some of the locations are remote. In such remote places, the accommodations would be basic, but of course, it will be nice and comfortable.

WILL I BE SHARING A ROOM?

Yes. Our rates are based on twin share accommodation. Unless you are bringing a spouse or riding buddy, you will be paired with a fellow adventurer. Single rooms are available on request for extra charge.

WHAT ARE THE MEALS LIKE?

Surprisingly good actually, keeping in mind the remote corners that we travel to. Breakfast is usually a hotel buffet. Lunch tends to be the least predictable meal as we never quite know where we will be at lunch time. Sometimes we will have a packed lunch; other times we will be in a small town somewhere that can meet our needs. Dinner is our main meal and besides local dishes, there are other options..

WHAT IS THERE TO DO OTHER THAN DRIVE?

One of the main highlights of our expeditions is going beyond driving. We try to include the opportunity to engage with the local people and culture where possible as well as ensure we visit interesting and historical sites. Once we reach at the day’s destination it is entirely up to you to participate in the arranged activities, for example, take a boat tour on the lake, or you can just put your feet up and rest. Besides those sort of things, it is great just being with other like-minded enthusiasts.

HOW LONG ARE THE DRIVING HOURS?

They vary. We try to keep them not more than 6-8 hours on any given day (avg. 3-4 hrs per day). But there will be days which can be longer of the weather is bad. We also make sure we have either rest days or late starts/early finishes mixed in. Itinerary is designed in a way that you can explore the location as well as enjoy the driving experience.

IS IT SAFE TO BE DRIVING ALONE?

Yes. You are actually never alone, cars are usually are in a convoy making it absolutely safe. We give you your privacy to explore places on your own, but we are never far behind.

IS THERE A SUPPORT VEHICLE?

Yes. We run a 4×4, support vehicle to carry, spares and tools, extra fuel etc.

IN CASE OF BREAKDOWN, WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO BE TAKEN?

Usually the support vehicle and the mechanics travelling with us are able to take care. Under an extreme circumstance where that is not possible, you will be provided with a backup car.

INCASE OF DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE, DO I HAVE TO PAY?

The vehicles are insured, including third party liability. These are of course subject to the laws of the land and we have to abide by that. Incase there are some damages that are not covered or you fail to inform in time, you may be liable to pay. But we have all the safety element factored in, so there is little probability that this situation may arise.

CAN I HAVE A CUSTOMISED ITINERARY?

We would love to create your dream route for you. Just send in your request and we will make it happen.

CAN I BRING MY OWN VEHICLE?

We take pride in ourselves in arranging the best vehicles at the given destination. Take this opportunity to give your vehicle a rest. In our experience the paperwork involved and the transport cost is usually prohibitive, making it an unviable option. But if you are still keen to drive only your car, we can make it happen as well.

IN CASE OF UNAVOIDABLE CIRCUMSTANCES, CAN I CANCEL MY BOOKING?

Yes, if circumstances are such that you are unable to make it, you can cancel your booking. Cancellations are subject to our cancellation policy.

WHAT WILL I NEED TO PAY EXTRA WHILE ON the EXPEDITION?

Our expeditions are an all inclusive experience except for your international flights, VISA costs and other items of personal nature like, travel insurance, tips, laundry and alcohol. And during the expedition, we would have some days which are left free where you can indulge in experiences of your own choice – eat, shop, buy local souvenirs, and indulge in activities that are not mentioned in our itinerary. All these would be additional. Before each expedition, we will inform you about what all you can do during the trip, so that you can be prepared for it in advance.
