Africa Overland Tours

Our Africa Overland Tours combine some of the best wildlife on our planet with adventure activities, outstanding natural beauty and magnificent Indian Ocean beaches. Travel is in safe, roomy, superbly equipped 4x4 adventure trucks. They incorporate everything that you and your companions will need: food, drink, tents, camping equipment, individual lockers, book library, USB ports - and lots of leg room. That is not to mention your brilliant, experienced driver guides, whose only job is to take good care of you and show you the time of your life – and do the cooking. All food is included. Soft luggage bags are required but there are no weight restrictions.
 
You can camp in self-erected tents or take the accommodated option. This version includes en-suite chalet or permanent safari tents, hotels, hostels, and traditional huts. The self-erected tents are standing height, heavy duty with built in mosquito nets. They are easy to erect and you get to set up your own home each evening. Accommodated facilities are 2 – 3 star and provide a little more comfort, including beds. Whichever you choose and wherever you go, the group stays together, with the guides and your truck! You can go for one, two or three weeks, or even longer.
 
Our African overland safari tours are available all over Southern & East Africa, with individual tours roaming through as many as eight countries. From Cape Town to the Victoria Falls on the Zambia/Zimbabwe border; Nairobi in Kenya down to Johannesburg, South Africa’s commercial and cultural capital; relax on Mozambique,’s stunning beaches or trek to marvel at the mountain gorillas in Uganda. We offer a wide range of Africa overland tours, so call us on 01582 766122 to start planning an unforgettable journey.
 
Selling Africa overland tour for over 15 years.
ALL AFRICA OVERLAND TOURS ARE FINANCIALLY PROTECTED wherever in the world you live.
Take the grand tour of lovely South Africa, including Zululand and stopping off in tiny Swaziland. See the iconic Drakenberg mountains and Durban, with its ethnic, port town buzz and superb beaches. Drive across the fabled Masai Mara or the fabulous Kruger Park, with their unrivalled big game. Would you like to motor across the deserts of Namibia and Botswana, before heading north through Zambia and Tanzania to the island of Zanzibar on the Indian Ocean? Not all combinations will be possible of course, but the variety is enormous and the choice is yours.
 
African Overland Tours provide a fantastic way to meet new friends. After each day of exploring or adventure activity, everyone enjoys sitting around the campfire before retiring with the sounds of Africa in their ears. Our tours are an unforgettable way to hear, see and feel Africa. If you have never been, then this may be the best way for you to begin to explore this fabulous continent. Tours take between 4 and 18 people, of all ages but all with the same curiosity and spirit of adventure.
 
The driving is not non-stop! You will have lots of time to linger and enjoy what is on offer wherever you go, and there is something for everybody. There are marine cruises to see dolphins, sharks and turtles, big game fishing, bird watching, horse riding, snorkelling and scuba diving, quad biking, white water rafting, local markets, ancient ruins, culture, local villages and traditional pastimes and displays. That is in addition to Africa’s stunning scenery and natural features, plus hallmark safari game drives, in open-top, 4x4 go-anywhere vehicles. The wildlife in Africa is unequalled and you will explore for the Big Five, and dozens more, before heading home after relaxing with a sundowner in the glow of a beautiful African sunset. There are night drives too, to seek out the innumerable fascinating creatures which hide or sleep during the day.    
 
Our Africa Overland Tours are adventures. They are road trips, but with a difference. The roads can be long, bumpy and muddy, but overland tours are really about every aspect of the journey, not the destination. These include not only the animals, birds and unbelievable scenery, but also your fellow travellers. You are in it together, for the same reasons: to have fun, experiences, to wonder and learn. So relax and maybe get to know them. It’s all part of what we promise will be the trip of a lifetime.
