My fiance and I completed this tour and had a great time. The National Parks were amazing, the scenery incredible and we loved the included activities.
The truck and tents were very comfortable and our guide Crispen was very knowledgeable and let us know in advance what was coming up and when we should buy things / withdraw more money etc... Our driver Harmony was just lovely and I always enjoyed having a chat with him at our campsites.
The camp sites were all really nice - it was great to fall asleep to the sound of lions roaring or sleep under the stars in the desert.
The only downsides were - on other overland trips I have been on they take a tipping kitty at the start and the tour leader manages the tips along the way. I found it tricky trying to figure out what the appropriate amount to tip was.
Also other tours have guidelines aout what to tip the guide and driver which is re-iterated by the tout leader at the end of the tour. In this case it wasn't andmany other people on the tour just used this as an excuse to not tip at all, or very little- which I think was pretty poor form and made me feel like I had to tip more to make up for them.
The other downside was the duty roster - sometimes I felt like I was held back from going in the pool or going for a walk because I had to stay and cook - It felt to restrictive - I prefer when the people on tour just work it out together rather than have a roster. The roster also meant some people barely cooked at all because they always fell on days where we didn't have to, yet others had to cook all the time. Perhaps a different system would work better.
