Africa Overland Tours

True adventure is not measured by the time you spend, but rather the experiences you have. Every day is a chance to do something new and, with that in mind, we’ve put together a stunning catalogue of overland adventure tours for all types of wanderers. Whether you want to travel into the heart of Africa, summit the continent’s highest peak, or bungee jump in amazing surroundings, we have the excursion for you.

If you’ve got the time, our 42 day Cape to Nairobi safari is an epic adventure that sees you travelling across almost half of Africa. You’ll cross deserts, travel down rivers, and marvel at all the sights Africa has to offer along the way. If you’re looking for something just as epic, but are limited by time, you could explore the Okavango and Chobe Trail (South), travel South Africa’s famous Garden route, or trek Kilimanjaro for breath-taking views at its summit.

No matter which of our overland tours you find yourself on, you can set off knowing that you’re going to experience the real Africa, and return with memories and experiences that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
