Overland Info: General Information

Overlanding in Africa is one of the most affordable ways for adventure travellers to experience the diversity and beauty of Africa. Throughout Africa you will experience breathtaking scenery: from high mountains and tropical rainforests to vast fertile plains and spectacular deserts. You will have the chance to meet a fascinating variety of people; from the Maasai in the east to the Himba and Zulu in the south.

Africa is one of the most rewarding continents for an overlanding tour. During your African overland safari you will also encounter some of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in the world; from the lifetime experience of seeing gorillas in their natural environment to the vast open plains of the Serengeti to the fertile game-filled islands of the Okavango Delta and to South Africa's game-rich Kruger National Park. Our range of African overland safaris and camping trips offer you all of the above and more.

Overlanding in Africa is an unforgetable experience for the 'young-at-heart' traveller and although we have a minimum age limit of 18, we don't have a maximum age limit. African Overland Safaris offers true adventure and roads can sometimes be appaling and schedules sometimes meaningless - so if you prefer luxury and running water every day, then overlanding is probably not for you.

Our African overland safaris are conducted in custom build overland vehicles, suitable for all the different terrains we will encounter on our adventures. An element of participation is involved and group members are expected to join in with cooking and all camp chores. On some short tours we may take along a cook, but we still ask group members to participate in the food preparation.

Whether you have time for only a glimpse or the freedom to enjoy a multi-country overlanding adventure, your experience will let you fully understand the age-old saying: 'You can leave Africa, but Africa will never leave you!
