We’ve compiled a list of reasons why you should consider overlanding through Africa, and why you should make the journey with us, African Overland Tours.


Overlanding is basically like taking a road trip – and you know how fun road trips are! You’ll travel through many different parts of the continent, depending on your chosen tour, and will be travelling with like minded travelers who will soon become friends for life. The beauty of the overland experience is that you are free to stop and take photos, visit the markets and purchase souvenirs and chat with the people from the local villages that you pass along the way. It’s an adventure that really fills the void of feeling like a tourist. Instead, you feel like you’re one with your surroundings because you’re free to explore without boundaries, and able to interact with others. If you want to get the most out of your African trip, then this is certainly the way to do it.

A few other reasons why overlanding is a favourite:

  • It’s budget friendly
  • You will see the “real” Africa by taking the road less travelled
  • Meet new people and have someone to share your experiences with
  • Be accompanied by experienced African travellers who know the best kept secrets and who will ensure you get to see and experience these hidden gems
