Is an overland safari for you?

Affordable and comfortable tented tours exploring the wildlife in Zambia, Botswana, South Africa and mostly in Namibia (The top adventure destination)

Overlanding safari trips in Africa is not for every-one. Working together as a group and overall flexibility are part of the daily workings of these adventures, especially on long duration multi-country trips.

It can be extreme with a multi-national group mix, difficult roads, heat and dust. But it is a reasonably priced travel option, it is safe and definitely a lot fun (well, that is up to you!).

You will cover more places of interests, than if you would have done if travelling on your own, and go to destinations that would be not possible to gain access to without a organized overland safari.

You may discover your inner self, and also end up building lifelong friendships: sharing the good and bad, the buying food and cooking food, the equipment failures and itinerary alterations, all build an amazing connection with your fellow travellers. Africa overlanding trips would always be the absolute adventure.

Some overland trips are in smaller groups and some in larger groups. Namibian trips are generally up to 12 guests in a smaller truck, where the multi-country one's are generally up to 22 guests in a custom overland truck.

Costs? From your meals, reliable transport, top wildlife safari guides, spacious canvas dome tents and comfortable safari mattresses, to the various daily activities as clearly stated on our itineraries.

We will always make sure you know exactly what is included and what is not.
