View the values that make the team awesome.


Magical Memories. There are so many magical moments to experience on an Africa tour as you travel between amazing highlights.

Experience Diversity. See diverse landscapes, visit natural wonders and iconic national parks as you relish every spectacular sighting.

Challenge yourself. While there is lots of adventure along the road, whether you travel solo or in a group, your tour is sure to be challenging and fulfilling.

Unique Experiences. Yet, we can collectively agree that these experiences have fundamentally affected us and how we live our lives.

Take a Moment for yourself. You’ll have the opportunity to get back to basics and really take stock of your life and truly lean into being grateful for the parts that bring you joy and get clarity on the elements that you might be looking to change.

Give yourself some perspective. Surprisingly, your Africa tour will have a profound effect on how you see yourself and will give you an amazing sense of perspective. Since we have each experienced this effect on our own lives, we have taken great joy in helping others find the same adventure, clarity and freedom for themselves which is why we have one purpose…

Adventure Experts

Let’s talk goosebumps moments! Yes, Africa offers them up in bucket loads and we have experienced them all during our travels as guides in Africa. We are adventurous people who believe that the journey is sometimes more important than the final destination.


Best Pricing

You can trust us to offer the best pricing with our Price Beat Guarantee and No Booking Fees.


We Know Africa

We have travelled on 99% of the routes in Africa – (not many people can say that). As ex-Africa Overland guides and world travellers we are experts in offering the most amazing guidance and insight so that you are well equipped for your journey of a lifetime.


Private Charters

We design all types of adventures from special interest charter tours, school group charters, private family tours, to groups of friends heading to festivals. Your tour will be in an overland truck or smaller luxury private vehicle ready to take on the roads in Africa while keeping you comfortable and safe.



It’s vital that you know what type of travel you are getting into as Africa is an adventure and not necessarily a typical holiday. You can always rely on us to be honest and clear so that you know what to expect.

Why African Overland Tours?

The team at Escape 4 Africa Travel and African Overland Tours, have travelled along an adventurous African road from North Africa to Cape Town, covering Africa from top-to-toe.

African Overland Tours Team

We’re here to help you plan your journey of a lifetime, every step of the way!

Our passion is twofold; we love the African continent, and we give honest advice to help you plan the most amazing adventure tour to Africa.

We want you to experience this extraordinary continent, as we have, with its breathtaking scenery, colourful cultures, local cuisine and of course, amazing wildlife.

  • We profile your needs by stepping into your shoes,
  • Provide unbiased, honest and clear, yet personalised information
  • Backed by knowledgeable service (we have travelled on all the routes)
  • Save you hundreds of hours of research
  • Reduce the overwhelm of information

An easy way to explain what we do is this:

We are similar to a mobile/cellphone store that stocks both Apple and Samsung. We can tell you about the differences and advantages of either and therefore have the benefit of an unbiased opinion. Plus we can give it to you at an extremely competitive price, if not cheaper.

Escape 4 Africa Travel owns the brand African Overland Tours .com and was started by Andrew Walton, and collectively our team has over 70 years consulting experience in Africa and pride ourselves on having ex-Africa tour guides on our team.
