Without a doubt, the best Egypt trip you can experience is in ‘overland’ style. Embarking on an overland trip offers cheap holidays to Egypt, but promises the richest experience. Whatever length of time you have to spend exploring the North African sands on your Egypt trip, Overlanding Africa can get you there… and back.

These are our three top Egypt trips:

#No. 1 The Best of Egypt Trip

Often it’s not possible to spend a month exploring foreign sands; that’s why our Best of Egypt trip allows you to experience it all in a two week adventure. From missioning across Egypt’s desert, to drifting through calming waters of the Nile in a felucca, the trip’s two week itinerary sends you on a historical journey of ancient discovery and natural beauty. This trip promises 14 days, well spent, admiring the absolute Best of Egypt. You get such value for money when choosing from Overlanding Africa's cheap holidays to Egypt.

#No. 2 Middle East Trek 

Set off on a 5 week exploration letting that open mind of yours absorb the culture of the Middle East. This epic overland journey kicks off in Istanbul and sees you through to oriental Turkey, friendly Syria, Jordan’s desert sands, and ancient Egypt. This cheap holiday to Egypt gives enough time to experience the region’s diversity, sights and culture.


Overlanding holidays in Egypt aren't all about the tombs, temples and pyramids, they're about the humbling feeling you experience when you realise that the bubble you've been living in, is now the size of the globe. All this on a cheap holiday to Egypt! Bargain. *Salama alekum: A common greeting heard in Egypt meaning ‘Peace be with you’. What are you waiting for?

7 Styles of Overland Trips in Africa

Thursday, January 27th, 2011
  • Google+

Overlanding has evolved over the last couple of years and has become a very popular mode of travel for many, not only the gap year student. Trips have been developed to be more inclusive and have branched into different styles of travel. For example physically less demanding trips to suit senior travellers, photography, family, small groups, accommodated, and Trans Africa trips that can take you almost a year to complete.

Below is a quick overview of 7 different styles of overland trips - there is one to suit you!

family overland trips

Family Overland Trips

Africa is a fantastic family holiday destination and the perfect destination for children. Your children will learn about the animals and cultures giving them the learning opportunity of a lifetime on a family overland trip. Small Group Safaris Our small group trips in Africa are ideal for those who want to travel with only a few like minded companions. Groups sizes range from 2 to 14.

Africa Short Breaks

Our short break Africa overland trips are ideal for travellers who don't have a lot of time, or are looking to select their own add-on short tour in Africa as an addition to any of our standard Africa overland trips.

Croc Camp

Accommodated Overland trips

raditionally a camping experience, the Africa overland travel concept has evolved into offering budget accommodated overland trips in Africa.

Photography trips

These specialty photography trips cater for travellers who wish to learn about taking better photographs while still appreciating the culture, history and wildlife of the African continent while on their African photo safari.

Trans-Africa Overland Expeditions

Trans Africa trips cover traditional routes between London, Cape Town and Cairo from 3 weeks to 40 weeks. This is the real overland experience at its best. If you love hot showers and home comforts this style of travel is not for you.


Camping Overland trips

Exactly as it sounds! Camping under a huge African sky, camp fire stories and 'free camps'. Cheap and cheerful. Perfect!
