Transport & Accommodation

View of the deployed Taurus and its tents.

 

Taurus the Truck will be your transport and accommodation for the itinerary you select. You must understand about what is Taurus all about and what it offers.  The space and resources have some limitations for being a ‘mobile camping’ but its 5Star for those who love outdoors.

DESIGN & FACILITIES

It begins and ends with Taurus; the GDE fully equipped and special-purposed built overland expedition truck. With ultimate logistics, Taurus seamlessly provides transportation and accommodation with all the logistics for outdoor life in comfort throughout your expedition. Taurus has unique arrangement for sleeping with dome tents on rooftop along four innovatively designed ‘tray tents’ with single or double foam mattresses as well separate dome-tents for those who seek total privacy on such tours.

COMFORT We have done our best to ensure the basic comforts are available which are missing completely on other overland trucks.

Taurus is 5 Star for those who are passionate for outdoors,

not for those who seek 5 Star comforts.

  • Inner lining for the hygiene of sleeping bags is to be used by the individuals, which shall be given by us.
  • Inside Taurus, we have two long seats for meeting and discussion in case of bad weather; these are used by the crew.
  • STORAGE FOR BAGGAGE: We provide one large size locker for each guest.  But guests are requested to bring ONLY soft bags which can collapse and can be stowed away into the lockers allotted to each individual for the journey or even our static camps. On arrival, everyone shall get mesh bags (returnable) to transfer clothing which can be stored in individual lockers. We shall not be able to accept anykind of suitcases on board, as we have no space.
  • Toilet and Bath The toilet onboard to be used by ladies ONLY while travelling and in bad weather for all. Outdoor tented toilet to be used when camping. Incase, time is not permitting, one should be willing to use the bush.
  • If one needs extra space for baggage then book in advance at extra cost, provided we have space available.
