Africa Overland Trucks

What to Expect from your Overland Truck

Equipped Africa Overland VehicleAll trucks have long distance fuel tanks, water tanks and contain all equipment needed for an overland tour, such as: tents, camp stools, tables, kitchen equipment and much more. There is also a safe available for all of your valuables, a stereo for fun times and internal and external lighting. A few vehicles are even equipped with tables inside the actual truck! The seating arrangements vary from vehicle to vehicle. Some of the seats face each other inwards, others face forwards and some face backwards. Overland trucks generally have space for approximately 24 passengers. If you're on a small group overland trip though, you can expect your overland vehicle to seat about half of that.

What happens if we break down?

The overland trucks carry an extensive array of spare parts which, combined with the crew’s mechanical knowledge, should be enough to get you on the road again in the event of a breakdown.

Picking a Truck for Africa Overland Travel

Africa Overland Customised TruckOnce you have decided which African countries you would like to visit on your overland tour, then we suggest you browse through the different types of overland trucks and safari vehicles used for touring Africa. You will discover that there are a variety of overland trucks and each tour will not use the same truck. Therefore, it is important that you spend some time viewing the overland trucks as much of your time will be spent around or on your overland truck.
