No Hidden Extras
Our tours include all sightseeing, many meals and even taxes and tips where appropriate. All our Classic small group tours even include the airfares! We don’t like added extras, so our tour, independent and extension package prices include entrance to all national parks and reserves in Africa.
At Bunnik Tours we include multiple special experiences to captivate and take your travels from enjoyable to memorable. Our special experiences are unique, interesting and fun, and the best bit of all? They’re included on our tours at no extra cost. In Morocco, one of our special experiences is a cooking lesson in a beautiful Moroccan riad. Our guests then enjoy the delicious food they prepared for lunch.
To keep things interesting, we like to mix up our modes of transportation, allowing our passengers to experience travelling like a local. We include vehicles such as the bullet trains in Japan, a felucca boat ride down the Nile, a tuk tuk ride to a local restaurant in Cambodia, a 4WD jeep safari in Africa and even scenic flights over the Okavango Delta, Botswana. After all, anybody can give a coach tour, but for us it’s all about the experience.

More Room to Spread Out
Since 2012 we have limited our group size to a maximum of 20 passengers, with some tours as low as 12. We still use spacious coaches throughout and our small group policy means there are always plenty of free seats on the coach.
In Africa, our group size will never exceed 12 passengers, allowing everyone to get closer to the action! In East Africa our 4WDs travel with only 6 people in each, so everyone gets a window seat.
The size of our vehicles may differ depending on the region, but there will always be plenty of free seats, giving you space to spread out.
Tipping Made Easy
When holidaying in a new destination it can often be challenging to know when or how much to tip, particularly for Australians where tipping isn’t commonplace. That’s why we include it on all our small group tours, so you can have a stress-free trip!
Breakfast is included daily throughout our touring program, along with group welcome and farewell dinners. We also include some unique dining experiences and meals at those remote locations where finding a meal can be challenging. We purposefully do not include all meals; however, this allows you the opportunity to venture out and really experience life as a local. Be sure to speak with one of our friendly guides on tour for some great tips!

Our itineraries are made up of multi-night stops to give you time to breathe and take in your surrounds. Getting to the essence of a destination cannot be done when you’re always on the move. This, plus the inclusion of mornings, evenings, or days at leisure, offers you the chance to explore a destination on your own, experience one of our optional experiences, or to just relax with a good book.
Having a small group allows us to select smaller, boutique properties with more character. We use properties that are unique and tell the story of the destination you’re in. After all, if it’s worth the experience, we’ll include it. In Italy we stay two nights in the Sassi Caves in Matera or in the traditional Trulli houses in Alberobello.
