Comparing Our Styles

Basix: for travellers on a budget

Created for travellers of any age on a budget. Intrepid uses centrally locate accommodation, local transport where possible, and include lots of free time. So you can do what suits your interests and fits into your budget, without paying for inclusions you don't want.



Simple, clean, and centrally located with 2 to 2.5- star average rating. Typical accommodations for this style include budget hotels, local guesthouses, camping, or homestays.



Mostly uses local transport, giving you a taste of local life and giving back to the local economy. Specialist overland and safari vechiles in some areas.



Plenty of free time and optional activities, so you can spend your time and money how you want to. Meals are normally not included, but your local leader will have some great recommendations!


Original: the classic Intrepid experience

Perfect choice for those who want both an independent experience and guided time. Original trips use centrally located, locally run accommodation and include some meals.



Local guesthouses and homestay experiences are highlighted on many itineraries and you may even have a camping experience from time to time. Expect 3-star accommodation on average.



Uses a mix of private and local transport like tuk-tuks, camels, private safari vechiles, and canoes. Whatever is the best and most sustainable way to get around.

Comfort: a bit more... comfortable

For those that enjoy more of the finer things in life. We've smoothed away some of the rougher edges that come with adventure travel. This way you can enjoy a more relaxed pace, inviting accommodations, more included activities and many meals along the way.



Hotels at a 3-to-4 star level, with private amenities but still plenty of local character. Some itineraries also feature homestays or unique accommodations.
