African Overland Tours Team

We’re here to plan your journey every step of the way!

Our passion is twofold; we love the African continent, and we give brutally 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 (sometimes brutally honest) and personalised information
  • Backed by knowledgeable service (we have travelled on all the routes).

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.

We were all born and raised in South Africa and work closely with our trusted network of operators within the Africa overland industry.

Escape 4 Africa Travel was started by Andrew Walton, we have collectively over 50 years consulting experience in Africa and pride ourselves on having ex-Africa tour guides on our team.

  • We are SATSA Bonding and SATIB insured, providing financial protection with all monies paid
  • We have a 24 hour emergency number
  • We offer a Price Beat Guarantee
