the average person lives a life of quiet desperation, trapped in the rat-race
of a city, but there are those who now and then, feel the need to break free
of those bonds and seek adventure. Explore uncharted territories. Discover
wild and remote places, where each dawn and sunset heralds a new
experience." - African
The only way to truly appreciate Africa is to sleep on its earth, bake in its sun, touch its grass and smell the rain. If you want scented paper towels - stay in the city!

Overland adventure tours are for people who love life and want to embrace it with a passion, who care about culture, people and wildlife. As all of our scheduled departures are participation trips, it is very important that travelers have a positive attitude and are prepared to put in their fair share towards various everyday camping activities. Joining in is what turns a great trip into an unforgettable journey. With the right attitude we can guarantee that travelers will get the most out of their overland experience!
Our belief is that it’s not so much just the arrival at a destination, but the total experience of the expedition that is important. We travel together, learn from each other’s cultures and form a strong, supportive and fun team. Although our guides are Field Guide Association SA registered, they are not “heroes” and won’t pamper you. They are, however, enthusiastic and ready for anything and will always get you through the tough times with a smile.
For a successful expedition, all we need is space under the stars and your eagerness to join in!
typical day with us starts when the sun comes up - we live by nature’s
timetable and use as many daylight hours as possible. If you are camping,
tents are set up by nightfall, kettles are boiled, the smell of cooking scents
the air and we sit around the campﬁre chatting about the happenings of
the day and the excitement of tomorrow. For those on the accommodated option,
the only difference is that you sleep on beds. Evenings are for writing
diaries, playing cards or board games, or just listening to the African night.
Every single trip is different - we like it that way!
Be ready for the experience of a lifetime as Africa does not tick like clockwork, so be prepared to pack your sense of humor as there are sure to be a few surprises, which is why Africa is so endearing... We will show you the way!
An overland expedition is a journey along a suggested route aimed at the more adventurous and budget conscious traveler.
It is generally not on the beaten track, and many of the areas visited do not have the infrastructure that the package tourist may require.
The route taken may also vary from time to time due to various factors.
