If you're fit and just wish to see the sights, why not use a guide?
After your Overland Professional guide has discussed your thoughts with you, he will plan a route that is safe and manageable; this will be based on your fitness, experience and your appetite for adventure. Your guide will take care of all safety and navigational issues along with offering advice on clothing and equipment. You may also consider using a guide because they will know the area well and will be able to take you to places that you're unlikely to find on your own, such as caves, old mines, fresh water springs, ancient burial grounds and not least, the best places to photograph a spectacular sunrise or sunset. You may feel that you'd just like to venture well beyond your normal limit and would like a guide to ensure that your goal is achieved both safely and enjoyably.
