OVERLAND TOURS

If you would like to follow the footsteps of the big adventurers and discover the beauty of Southern and East Africa – then overland travel is for you! Our choice of African overland tours allows you to choose a trip based on your budget and time and the countries you would like to visit. A long African Adventure of 56 days from Cape Town to Nairobi is the trip of a life-time whilst a quick 7-day Vic Falls and Kruger overland camping safari is just the thing for those who have limited time. Many of the overland travel companies offer a choice of camping or lodge accommodation and there are also lots of opportunities en-route to participate in adventure activities, safaris and make great new friends. Overland tours are typically done in customised Overland Trucks which are specially designed for comfort and excellent viewing of game and the stunning landscapes you will come across while on the road. Overland travel is probably the most authentic way to travel through the vast distances of this awesome continent and really feel it’s heart.
