Overlanding - Meals

Staff preparing a mealThere is nothing like a good meal to keep you energised for all the adventures and activities Africa has to offer.

Will you have enough food for me?       

Those whose main concern is whether or not they will be fed enough on their overland in Africa will be relieved to hear that the overland vehicles are well stocked with staple foods at the beginning of each expedition. They try to maintain as much variety throughout the expedition as possible and restock from stores and markets along the way. Fruit and vegetables are fairly easy to obtain on all the routes, overland companies make special provision for vegetarians!

What's on the menu?

In the morning:

Toast, spreads, yoghurt, cereals and fruit for mornings and at mornings not on the move it could be time for a good fry up.

At Lunch time:

Cold meats, salads and sandwiches

In the evening:

A selection of casseroles, lasagnas, stews, roasts and grills with a compliment of salads and vegetables.

Everyone helps out

Pax helping out on tourYou can also perk up your cooking skills while overlanding. Whilst the crew do the lion's share of the organising, they do divide all overland participants into cooking teams who'll find themselves wearing the chef's hat once in a while.
