I booked this trip with Guerba where they call it "The Wilderness & Wildlife Safari". It is a 29 day trip through the Southern part of Africa together with a group of people of mixed nationalities. For transport we used a big Mercedes truck which can hold about 26 persons and one driver. In 29 days we travelled a distance of about 4.971 kilometers.
