Africa Arrival & Departure
OverlandingAfrica.com can assist with accommodation, car hire, flights and any day tours and activities in one cheap and easy package.
Accommodation in Africa
If you arrive a few days early in the departure city of your overland tour, OverlandingAfrica.com is able to organize your hotel or Africa hostel accommodation at very affordable rates. Please contact your overland consultant who will be able to assist you with accommodation ranging from low-budget hostels to more up-market hotels/lodges.
Generally speaking, our clients do not pre-book any accommodation in Africa for after their trip. You will find that you meet many travelers and you might end up sharing accommodation with them. However, for complete peace of mind, OverlandingAfrica.com is able to book you post-tour accommodation too.
Africa Car Hire
If you are in a city for an extended length of time then you may wish to hire a car or even try out a day tour in that city. We can arrange any activities and tours that you need help in organizing.

I'm quite curious about your tours. I'm in my middle 50s; but very fit and live in the Midwest USA. I'm seriously considering a 2-3 week trip. So this is my first contact and in the coming weeks I plan to investigate your programs more closely.

Hi Tanya; There is no exact answer to this question. On an overland trip; only you know how much you are likely to spend; do you smoke/drink/love shopping? An average of about USD 20 â€“ 30 per day on top of any optional activities is a good rule of thumb. It is also a good idea to make sure you have an accessible emergency fund just in case. Happy trails!

1; Please organise me a direct trip(if possible)flying from durban to the place I will meet your crew in Namibia. 2. I want to do the budget 'windhoek to windhoek' trip. 3. I however need to meet with San people somewhere along the line for an authentic experience with them. I need to interview them for research.I need to avoid at all costs a 'contrived' setup. Can you devise something that includes the rest that you offer? 4. I am a partial vegetarian but eat fish and chicken. 5. I am happy to share a tent; but need a bit of a comfortable lie down place at night. Dont have any other particular fancies. Happy on any road worthy truck. Please email me on my gmail to inform me and to suggest something. Thanks Patricia

Hi Jackson; the weather temperature during the coldest months in Sudan changes between 5 and 15 degrees. Mountain area gets colder and the temperatures are lower when compared with lower areas during the coldest months is between 7 and 17 degrees. I would recommend you contact the local weather bureau for more information. The terrain in Sudan is generally flat; featureless plain; mountains in far south; northeast and west; desert dominates the north. So depending on the areas that you will be living in will determine what you will wear. Happy trails!

Hi Shuree. This will all depend on the airline you decide to book with and naturally where in Africa you will be flying to. Africa is a huge place with many countries and destinations. Flight costs range to time of year; the route the airline will use getting to the destination in Africa and so forth. I would recommend you contact your local travel agent in your town for more assistance on flights to Africa. Happy trails!

Hi Rok; How many overland trips there are in Sudan I can help you with.... How much rain exactly; I have no idea. I guess you will need to get hold of the local meteorological service or weather centre - I am sure they can assist. Cheers;

Hi Nikkos. What a great adventure you have planned. Traveling through Turkey and the Middle East is stunning!! We have 5 or 6 trucks traveling through Sudan every year one of which came through heading south just a few weeks ago. Some take the main tar road and some take the 'Nile route' through the desert. We have not had any problems either way. Most smaller vehicles take the tar road and you will meet other people in 4WD vehicles along the way down to Egypt that I would recommend you get together with and arrange to travel Sudan and northern Ethiopia together if possible. Do not take the 'Nile route' unless you have FULL off road equipment; space to carry extra food; lots of water and extra fuel and preferably go with a support vehicle; (another similarly kitted 4WD vehicle). Keep an eye on the news reports and chat to other people coming north to see what the current situation is when you get there - obviously things can change very quickly. Call me in the office anytime if you need more info. Happy trails!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
