Overlanding - What's it all about?

It’s quite a simple concept.

overland-definition

On an overland journey, you’ll visit the must-see highlights of a region  - the iconic Taj Mahal, the incredible ruins of Machu Picchu or the the phenomenal Great Wall of China. By travelling in a purpose-built truck, you’ll also get well off the beaten track and under the skin of the country. Seeing lots of hidden gems along the way!

The idea of ‘pitching in’ has become intrinsic to overlanding– it becomes part of the adventure!

Camping and Hotels

We use a wide variety of accommodation depending on the trip; from hotels, guesthouses and jungle lodges, to tents, royal houseboats and even yurts! If you've never been camping before, then an overland trip is a great introduction! All of our trucks are fully equipped with sturdy tents and a full compliment of cooking and camping equipment. Your leaders will give you a full briefing about setting up on the first camping night, so it couldn’t be easier.

On some of our overland trips you'll be camping most nights (particularly in Africa), while on others you’ll be staying in characterful guesthouses and hotels with the odd homestay where you can get a unique insight into life in the local community.

We also offer upgrades on some of our trips (booked on the road), so if you fancy having a bit of comfort for a night or two…you can!

Open Age Policy

All of our trips have an open age policy, which we’re very proud of. Our journeys are designed for everyone who has an overland spirit, which makes for a healthy mix of different people sharing their experiences, creating a dynamic and vibrant atmosphere on the road.
