Overland Safaris

These Budget Overland Safaris are perfect for people who enjoy camping and the outdoors. You get to experience Africa’s beautiful outdoors by camping out at night, sitting around the campfire, taking in beautiful scenery, visiting local markets and getting to know the locals.

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, cash and your passport.

We have a range of camping and bedded tours, small group or larger group tours and younger or older group tours, to suit your travel needs and budget. Most Overland Budget Safaris 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 bedded tours which include a crew member, giving you time to sit back, relax and enjoy your vacation.

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

These tours are for active people who enjoy getting involved and don’t mind getting their hands dirty. The Budget Overland Safaris are also ideal for adrenaline-junkies because we offer activities like bungee jumping, white water rafting, scuba diving, trekking through gorges, zip-lining, hot air ballooning and the best heart-pumping activity of all: sky diving!
