Style Style Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.
Retreats Similar to a self guided tour but staying in one location only with activities and day outings included as a part of the stay.

This overland tour is inspired by the diversity of wildlife East Africa has to offer. The tour gave me the incredible opportunity to experience Rhinos and Gorillas in a peaceful and calm environment in their natural habitat. The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and Ruhengeri National Park serve as wonderful surroundings to see these stunning animals up close and personal without crowds. I also got see Elephants, Lions, Zebras, Hyenas and various birds in Murchison National Park. They're optional activities the tour allows for in Uganda. Their is canoeing and village walks to a school in Lake Bunyoni and many adrenaline activities in Jinja.

Intrepid provides a driver, tour leader and chef that were very professional and helpful. The Overland Truck never broke down and the tents were good quality and easy to put up. I had the option to upgrade to a room most nights. This tour is an easy way to travel between three countries without the hassle of flying or public buses and witnessing plenty of sights and wildlife along the way.
