What is an Overland Tour?

overland tours south africa

In a nutshell, it is an unforgettable African overland experience for anyone young at heart, has an open-mind and a sense of adventure! They are also tours that cross over from Southern Africa to East Africa, thus combining two regions.

These are adventure tours perfect for people who enjoy camping and the outdoors. You get to experience the “real Africa” by camping out at night, sitting around the campfire, taking in beautiful scenery, visiting local markets and getting to know the locals.

All overland vehicles are custom-built to endure the tough African roads and self-sufficient to carry everything you need for your overland tour: food, camping gear, tents, chairs, cutlery and the kitchen sink!

Sleeping mats are included on select tours – be sure to ask based on your chosen tour. All you need to bring is your own sleeping bag (only on camping tours), pillow, towel, clothing, money and your passport.

We have a range of camping and accommodated tours, small group or larger group tours and younger or older group tours, to suit your travel needs and budget.

Most Africa overland tours are limited participation tours whereby travellers assemble and disassemble their own tents and help out at meal times on a rotational basis. We have a select range of small group accommodated tours which include a crew member, giving you time to sit back, relax and enjoy your vacation.
