An overland safari tour is the ultimate most authentic way to explore Africa, Overlanding in Africa is all about travelling by road in specially adapted expedition trucks and immersing yourself in the culture and environment of the countries you visit. Kenya’s capital Nairobi is usually the starting point for Overland trips as this offers travelers the option of combining a safari in Kenya with either gorilla trekking in Uganda or a safari to Tanzania’s famous Serengeti National Park or the Ngorongoro Crater.
Our overland safari trucks are custom built with comfortable seats and an ample leg room. Each overland safari truck carries everything needed for an adventure safari that includes a fully equipped kitchen with cooking equipment, a fridge, enough food, cutlery, pots, pans, gas stove, food and water supplies plus tents, camping gear , tables, chairs and spare parts.
Overland tours in Africa are usually camping and group participation trips: all group members assist with camp chores which include setting up tents, cooking and washing up. The safari trucks have secure lock up facilities for your bags and a safe for your valuables, a power inverter with a 220v – 240v socket to charge the phones, cameras, laptops and so on.
Overland safaris accommodation can vary from bush campsites in the middle of a wilderness to fully luxurious hotels and lodges; it usually depends with the choice of the group and what is available. On a normal overland adventures route, accommodation is usually in campsite with optional budget hotels and lodges on the way.
A tent is usually shared by two people; they are large enough for two, with mosquito nets over the door and window areas, a sewn in ground sheet and a separate flysheet; You will have to provide your own sleeping bag, sleeping mat and a pillow if you need one.
