What Types of Vehicles are used on an African Overland Safari?


There are two types of vehicles used – Custom built adventure overland vehicles (i.e. overland trucks or safari midi-bus) and smaller East African safari vehicles (i.e. land cruiser or mini-bus).

Each vehicle is uniquely designed to travel comfortably and safely, on varying types of African road conditions. The vehicles are fully serviced and well-maintained before each departure to ensure comfort and safety.

* Adventure overland trucks can comfortably seat a maximum of 24 to 30 travellers

* Overland safari midi-buses can comfortably seat a maximum of 14 travellers
