Overlanding is a word synonymous with adventure. If you’ve never travelled in Africa before, don’t want to go solo, or prefer the friendship, togetherness and certainty that comes with a small-group adventure, then an overland safari tour is a fantastic option. Long regarded as the most authentic way to explore Africa, Overlanding in Africa is all about travelling by road in specially adapted expedition trucks and immersing yourself in the culture and environment of the countries you visit.
Due to the long and sometimes difficult conditions, our overland safari trucks are custom built with comfortable seats and an ample leg room. Each overland safari truck carries everything needed for an adventure safari that includes a fully equipped kitchen with cooking equipment, a fridge, enough food, cutlery, pots, pans, gas stove and so on.food and water supplies plus tents, camping gear , tables, chairs and spare parts.
Overland tours in Africa are usually camping and group participation trips: all group members assist with camp chores which include setting up tents, cooking and washing up. The safari trucks have secure lock up facilities for your bags and a safe for your valuables, a power inverter with a 220v – 240v socket to charge the phones, cameras, laptops and so on. Accommodation is in tents but if you prefer not to camp, we also offer accommodated overland adventure tours where travel is still by overland trucks but you’ll be staying in budget hotels and lodges. If you are looking for a group tour and great value for money, an overland tour would be the most suitable option for you.
Kenya’s capital Nairobi is usually the starting point for Overland trips where you can explore the land itself as well as neighboring countries on budget group tours. This offers travellers the option of combining a safari in Kenya with either gorilla trekking in Uganda or a safari to Tanzania’s famous Serengeti National Park or the Ngorongoro Crater.
