What is an African Overland Tour all about?
It’s an adventure! A tour that lets you experience Africa authentically.
If you up for a challenge and love to live life with an open mind while getting a taste of what it’s like to be a travel nomad, then this is the tour for you.
Grab your seat in a custom-built vehicle and get ready to travel to remote regions while enjoying amazing encounters with wildlife and discover African cultures and history as you embark on the trip of a lifetime!
Get in touch with nature on a Camping Tour
Our budget camping tours ensure you will have an authentic adventure in Africa. Camping under starry night skies and spend your days exploring the bush on foot or in a safari 4×4 vehicle. Get hands-on and participate in camp life by taking part in setting up camp and food preparation. Enjoy campfires and fun times getting to know your fellow travelers as you forge new friendships and share travel stories.
Travel in comfort on Accommodated Tours
Accommodated Tours will still meet your budget and ensure you have an adventure in Africa while enjoying a bed to rest your head at night. Our affordable accommodated tours consist of lodges, hostels, bungalows or chalets, permanent safari camps and hotels. Either way you will appreciate the added comfort available to all age groups.
Stretch you legs out on Small Group Tours
Our budget Small Group Tours offer you a more personalised experience with maximum 17 travelers per vehicle. Enjoy flexibility and more space as you explore Africa and get to know your fellow travelers and crew on a more personal level.
Step it up a notch on a Tented & Lodge Safari Tour
So you like a bit more comfort and personal touches, we get it! That’s taken care of on a Tented & Lodge Safari which offers a more targeted experience of wildlife. Small groups of travelers are catered to with more comfort while enjoying lodges, guesthouses, hotels and semi-luxury permanent tents which are still budget friendly yet with a unique touch.
