  1. Is the 650 added to 3500? Also do I have to purchase my own flight or is it included in the 3500? Thanks in advance.

  2. I have called access africa to make a deposit no one has returned my call. No live person ever answers. Also when you go to access africa website it comes up as not a trusted site . Please advise.

    • Both happy and sad to see inquiries about this tour and that I was not the only one with problems getting through to Access Africa or getting responses. I look forward to meeting others interested in experiencing these countries who are persistent enough to to find the answers to these travel details

    • Greetings Eric. All 2017 tours will be posted to this site; they are still being formulated but will be posted soon. So continue checking back. Thank you for your inquiry.
