Overland travel allows for soaking up culture, environment and wildlife in an equally exciting and awe-inspiring way. Our tour guide Nash made a special effort to find out what our special interests were and was able to made us all feel like family after a short time. We were spoilt by everything Africa has to offer, whether it was in the trip notes or not - an unforgettable adventure!

This is a relatively economic way to explore Africa. Even though we are mostly camping, it is very comfortable. The crew is fantastic - food is always tasty and plenty; the driver's driving skill is excellent and the group leader shares with us lots of lovely and good stuff. I like the itinerary very much - during the 27-day trip I was able to see lots of animals and unique African landscape and witness the lives & culture of some local people. I highly recommend this trip.
