Build Your Trip to Africa
What is an Africa Overland Tour?
Africa Overland tours are a safe way of travelling through Africa via road, with a group of like-minded travellers. It is not a bus tour from A to B, it is a way of experiencing Africa, the expected as well as the unexpected. You will be able to say that you climbed the tallest mountain in Africa, did the highest bungee in the world, rafted down the wildest river, but also that you spoke in sign-language with a Masai warrior, that you helped build part of a school for Ugandan children, that you joined the locals in eating “ugali” with your hands!
Your overland vehicle is custom built and designed to deal with travel conditions in Africa. Most overlanding is based on camping adventures. This does not only allow you to experience Africa to its fullest, including the typical night sounds, but also to enjoy the group feeling of sitting around a campfire at night, talking about the experiences of that day, whilst devouring a delicious meal cooked on the coals!
History of Africa Group Travel
People have been travelling overland since the days of Marco Polo, and it’s the best way to feel the rhythm and soul of the country you are visiting. In Africa Overlanding started in the colonial days when the great white settlers travelled from Europe in vehicles laden with their worldly possessions hoping to start a new life on the African plains. Then, it was an arduous task to drive from the top of Africa to the bottom, with few roads, facilities, even maps. These were followed in the 1960s by hardy young adventurers in 4x4s that wanted to achieve the Cairo to Cape Town route and painstakingly eased their vehicles across deserts, through steamy jungles, and along barely-there roads.
Africa Overlanding Tours - A trucking good time
Commercial Overlanding was born in the late 1960s when these first overlanders recognized that there were other people out there who wanted to travel overland but didn’t have the unlimited time or money to go in their own vehicles. In the early days, the concept was simple and cheap: bolt some coach seats into a second hand army truck, stock it with spares, tents and food, sign up some punters and hit the road. Six months later, despite mechanical breakdowns, broken bridges and bureaucratic disasters, 20 weary but enlightened overlanders would gaze upon Table Mountain. From the outset, the difference between Overlanding and conventional package safaris was participation, as it still is today. The passengers pitched in, taking responsibility for food shopping, cooking, putting up their tents, lighting fires, and keeping the truck clean. Early itineraries were loose, if they existed at all, and expeditions developed according to the interests and input of their participants. Many of today’s overland companies are still owner-managed by these first overlanders that a few decades ago pioneered the popular overland routes in their own vehicles.
Creature comforts on your Africa Backpacking Adventure
Over the years vehicles and routes have constantly improved. Largely down to better vehicle design with the passengers comfort in mind, and improved infrastructure in Africa. Where once overland groups would camp in the bush each night, today there is a wide range of excellent campsites catering for overlanders and the vehicles, with activities, bars, restaurants, and facilities. There’ll be few nights where you won’t be able to have a shower or a beer; whether they will be hot or cold respectively is another matter however! Many of the barely-there tracks are now tarred super highways, and where it once took weeks to drive a few hundred kilometres, it now only takes a couple of days.
Two weeks or two months?
Overland trips have become much quicker and it’s now feasible for people to explore considerable parts of Africa in just a few weeks. A few years ago you would have had to jack your job in, say farewell to the family, pack up your home, and commit to several months of hard slog through Africa. Today thanks to a comprehensive range of trips and excellent flight links with Africa and the rest of the world, you can discover the wonders of Africa on an overland tour that can last from just a week to two months. There is a far greater choice out there to suit your budget and time frame, and still keep that job (and possibly the boyfriend) back home…speak to our consultants about what tour suits your requirements. Overlanding has come a long way since then but Africa is still waiting to be explored, just like many years ago.

Hello Jeff, I have sent you an email regarding your Africa Trip. Cheers
- Jeff27 Jul 2012
HI - I'm hoping to get your advice on the best plan with the following in mind: i have a very close friend who works in Arusha, TZ. my wife and i would like to visit him and of course, in TZ, he'll be able to take us around to explore any number of places - serengeti, kili, zanzibar, etc. But, (and i have done a big overland tour in this area way back in 1996 for some 8 weeks that seems similar to the route of some of your longer tours), i really really want my wife to see the wonders of Namibia. I'm wondering what you might suggest that is budget conscious that would allow for a Namibia side trip to a primarily TZ focused overall trip. my goal is to be in africa for 5-6 weeks. Thanks for any advice you can offer. flights between Arusha and Namibia seem super expensive and so the biggest question is getting from Seattle USA > TZ/Namibia > TZ/Namibia > Seattle USA.

Hi Sue! There is not really an upper age limit as long as you are fit, healthy and have a sense for adventure then you will be right as rain. The only thing we do require from any client over the age of 60 years is a letter from your doctor stating that you are fit enough to partake in an overland trip! I have emailed you some information. Happy trails!
- Sue Dawkes12 Mar 2012
Is there an upper age limit to your trips? I am a young 61 year old widow who has deided after 5 years on my own to get out there and have some adventures but it would be nice to have a few people of a similar age.
- Minette - OverlandingAfrica.com29 Dec 2011
Hi Jame, yes absolutely - it is possible for your son to go on one of our Cape Town to Victoria Falls trips. Most overland trips have a minimum age of 18years, however we do have trips available where the minimum age is 10 years. We then have family trips available where the minimum age allowed is 6 years. I have emailed you the perfect trip I have in mind for you! Cheers.

Hi Bev. The maximum age on an overland trip is around 60 years of age, however occasionally a fit older person can come too. As long as you understand the nature of the tour and provide us with a doctors letter stating you are fit enough to partake in the trip then you will be able to join! We are bonded with various agencies however you will still need to take out your own travel insurance so that you are covered for any unforeseen circumstances. Should you wish to have any more information please don't hesitate to email us!
- Bev04 Jul 2011
Hi I am looking at the trip Victoria Falls to Cape Town in Dec. Is there any age limit. I am off the older person and have done overlanding before. Are your company cover with Atol, Abta etc,?

I want to travel overland from Capetown or Johannesberg to Nairobi over 56 or 63 days - altogether I intend to be in Africa for approx 3 months. Do you have a trip that covers this and has variable accommodation as well as camping to make is more comfortable? I would prefer to travel with no more than 20 persons of varying ages. I am a fit 76 who mixes easily with all ages and has backpacked extensively over the world. If you have such a trip for me I would like to hear from you quoting the (all) total expenses. I am ready to travel within the time it takes to obtain my visa. Also do you arrange all the necessary permits into the various countries. Please include these costs .

Hi there, I am looking at going on an overlanding trip in the summer of 2012 departing in july after my graduation. I would have roughly 8/9 weeks for the trip.

Hi Mike, Overland tours dont include the Kilimanjaro Trekking. The trekking tours depart daily and you can add it on to your overland tour or do it before your tour departs from Nairobi.Cheers

Does the Northbound Tour include Mount Kilimanjaro?

Hi Lucie, We have plenty of options between Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam and an overland tour can get you there on average in about 10 Days.To travel overland from Nairobi to Vic Falls with an overland tour would not be possible as most of the itineraries follow a 21 Day tour between these two points. I suggest flying between Victoria Falls and Dar Es Salaam with a cheap domestic airline to save on costs and to suit your limited time frame. Cheers
- Lucie23 Dec 2010
Hello, Just found this site and very interested in overlanding next year! I was wondering if you could recommend a way we could do an overland trip in Kenya/Tanzania but then tack on a visit to Victoria falls. I know that's a flight away but are you able to suggest a potential itinerary even if we have to book it elsewhere? Would also be nice to spend a few days at a beach somewhere but now I might be asking too much as we'd only have 2 weeks. Hoping you can help, Lucie
- Tania - OverlandingAfrica.com07 Dec 2010

- Tania - OverlandingAfrica.com01 Nov 2010
Hi Shirley, Facilities change slightly depending on the tour but generally: Accommodation is either tented or accommodated with accommodated being a range of lodges, safari luxury tents, hotels, hostels and backpackers. All camps have proper bathroom facilities and if you ever find a 'pit toilet' most have a seat at least. Bush toilets are rare and that is where you will dig a hole for yourself. Trucks are not air conditioned. We recommend you buy a sleeping bag rather than rent one - they are pretty cheap to buy and you can always donate it locally at the end of the trip. We will put you in position to see the wildlife early in the morning and at sunset regardless of where the campsite is located. There is minimal walking to be done on any trip however there are some optional activities that can involve hiking/walking experiences. Happy trails!
- Shirley Miller01 Nov 2010
Are tents used exclusively on tours or is there a variation of accommodation? Do you have to sit on the ground or is there a choice of collapsible chairs. Is there a variation of toilet use on the trail. Is there a frame seat over a pit toilet? Are the trucks air-conditioned? Can you hire sleeping bags? Are the campsites close to the gate or inside the games compound? I believe this needs to be the case to enable early and late sightings. What is the approximate walking distance each day?
- Tania - OverlandingAfrica.com27 Oct 2010
Hi Murray, Well... over 700 trips so we have plenty of options but too many to email! Trips range from camping to accommodated, specialty, photography and some have all meals included, some don't. I will email you some questions that will help us narrow down the options for you and we can take it from there :) Cheers,
- murray campbell27 Oct 2010
myelf and my girlfriend are thinking of doing an organised africa trip sometime in the middle of next year. we are wanting to know what the options are? time is not something we are worried about so the longer the better, what are the accomodation options? is it all camping trips? how does the food work? can you send me the different trips you do please. Kind Regards

Hi Rene, There is not a trip that travels through all African countries and starts and ends in South Africa.

Hi Morris, We have many overland tours that will suit you. If you are young at heart and can get on and off the truck without any assistance than this is for you. Tents are normally provided for you and you are only required to bring your own sleeping bag when you take part in a camping tour.We also have many accommodated tour on offer if you would like to sleep in hotels and lodges.
- morris sinor13 May 2010
We are 70 years of age but are frequent backpackers and are in good health. Is this means of travel appropriate for us. What are sleeping accommodations in the cities and is a hotel an option? Do you provide tents or do we bring out own?

Hi there, I read about the overlanding tours and they sound amazing. Im from Mexico I love camping and all the traveling that involves getting close to the culture and the experience that a new place brings you. My boyfriend and I would like to travel to Africa and the overlanding experience seems to suit us. We would like to know what are the prices for the trip and also if you have a package or an offer for the flight to Africa. If you could also tell us the details of everything that is included it would be great. Many thanks and looking forward to your response. Jimena

Hi Margaret, 'Fairly fit' seniors would have no problem at all! We even have trips to suit 'fairly un-fit' seniors (also fairly un-fit travelers regardless of age and even travelers with disabilities)! ,) Traveling on a overland trip is less about having to be super-fit and more about being up for anything that Africa can throw your way. Obviously there are some trips (such as Trans trips) that are pretty tough and can be quite strenuous - if you were considering one of these we would make sure you understood exactly what you were getting yourself into before you decided to book. Email us any time with questions - the more questions answered, the better prepared you are, the more fun you will have! Happy travels!
- MARGARET WILSON11 Sep 2009
How would fairly fit seniors do....have you adjusted for non-athletes. Sounds so amazing.
