“Most people call it Africa… we call it home.”

At Escape 4 Africa Travel and African Overland Tours, we have travelled along an adventurous African road from Morocco to Cape Town, covering Africa from top-to-toe.


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 are here to profile you and provide first-hand unbiased, personalised and knowledgeable service when planning your African tour. 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 over 20 years consulting experience in Africa and pride ourselves on having ex-Africa tour guides on our team.

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

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.



Our Mission Statement

To be the number one adventure travel website for booking and finding out information on African adventure holidays that is personalised, honest, seamless and a better deal than booking direct.

Complete Service

We cover all services from flights, pre- and post-accommodation, pre- and post-transfers, advice and adventure trips.


Adventure Experts

We have guided in and explored Africa. We are adventurous people who believe that the journey is more important than the final destination.


Best Pricing

Best pricing Price Beat Guarantee. The tours are listed in the currency that offers the best pricing. Trips are often converted into GBP or AUD from a ZAR or USD currency, therefore, the trips are then priced higher to factor in foreign exchange changes. We believe in offering the best tour prices.


We Know Africa

We have travelled on 99% of the routes in Africa we consult on (not many people can say that). We haveex-Africa Overland guides and round the world travellers as experts.


Private Charters

We design all types of adventures from special interest charter tours(photography, battlefields, etc.),school group charters, family charters, to groups of friends going to festivals. They can be run in overland trucks or smaller luxury private vehicles.



It is vital that you know what type of travel you are getting into. Africa is an adventure and not necessarily a holiday. You benefit from a team thattells it straight.
