How many people on a coach tour?

The tour will depart once we have received 20 passengers as confirmed bookings. The group size will not exceed 38 passengers. The groups normally average around 28 to 32 passengers.


How big are the coaches?

The coaches are rented as required - and the seating capacities are 26, 36, 44 and 48. We rent coaches because we arrange tours - we are not transport experts. We will use a coach that fits the group size, but we also guarantee that there will always be some open seats!


Are children allowed on the coach tours?

Only children over the age of 16 are allowed on our coach tours.


How do I know that the tour is going to depart?

Once we receive your booking we will keep you updated as to the progress of other bookings on the same tour. Once the tour has the required 26 passengers - it is confirmed.


How do I pay?

You pay Touch Africa Safaris by Electronic Funds Transfer through your own bank. Banking details will appear on your invoice.


When do I pay?

A booking deposit of €50.00 is required on booking - this way we know you are serious about booking the tour and not just making an enquiry. (€35.00 is refundable should the tour not depart or you decide not to move your booking to another departure date). This deposit forms part of your tour price. When the tour is confirmed - 50% of the tour is payable. The balance is payable 30 days before departure.


Are there excursions and fees not included?

Everything as per the itinerary is included. Some meals are also included in the tour price - please check the itinerary. Some optional seasonal activities are not included - e.g. boat-based whale watching, and activities that you may arrange for yourself during a free day.


Are tips included in the tour price?

No - tips for the Tour Guide and the Coach Driver are not included. Neither are tips for supplementary tours - e.g. the safari guides in the Kruger National Park. Tips for hotel and restaurant staff are also not included - HOWEVER  - tips for the porters doing the luggage IS INCLUDED. Please take a look a the General Information Page for guidelines on tips and tipping procedure.


Are flights included?

Flights to and from South Africa at the beginning and end of the tour ARE NOT INCLUDED. These flights you need to arrange yourself. Flights during the tour - e.g. from Durban to Cape Town, and the return flight to and from Victoria Falls on the 15 Day Five Countries Spectacular are included.


What happens when I arrive in South Africa?

A representative from Touch Africa Safaris will meet you at the airport and you will then be taken to your hotel. This is Day 0 on the itinerary. On Day 1 your tour guide will be at the hotel to start the tour with you. We will also meet you earlier than Day 0 should this be the case.
