Where do Africa Overland Trips Go?

Africa is the most exciting continent on earth for backpacking travel. By backpacking Africa overland you can experience its wide plains, extensive wildlife, and ancient tribes from up close.

To experience this continent to the fullest, you have to be in the middle of it. Not only should you make game drives in the National Parks, but you should return from those to a campsite in the bush. And best of all, you should make your trip backpacking Africa, overland.

Backpacking Africa: Travel in Africa

The idea of backpacking travel in Africa is to experience everything this continent has to offer, not only the National Parks, but also the villages, bad roads, and everything else.

When we say overlanding we obviously mean travelling over land. So it doesn’t mean flying from highlight to highlight, but it also doesn’t mean using public transport.
