Who Goes Overlanding on a Trip to Africa?

You will need a sense of adventure and flexibility. Our itineraries are designed to show you most of the highlights for the area you will be travelling through, however, local conditions cannot always be predicted and your crew might have to alter the itinerary due to unforeseen circumstances such as a bridge that was washed away, a large herd of elephant on the road or a mechanical breakdown of the vehicle. As long as you keep your sense of humour, these changes often make up for the most memorable of stories of your trip to Africa.

Budget tours in Africa

If you are looking for an adventure, want to experience the real Africa and are not afraid of living life to the fullest then budget tours in Africa is the travel for you. If you also enjoy travelling in a group, experiencing wildlife, nature and mingling with fellow travellers and locals alike then Overlanding is definitely for you! Age is not a barrier and nor is fitness - all you need to be is adventurous and young at heart! Overlanders are usually more ‘travellers’ than ‘tourists’. Next to the main highlights of Africa, you will also be travelling off the beaten track, haggle with the local salesmen in the fruit & vegetable market, help your crew dig the truck out of a muddy patch and put up your tent up the wilds of Africa. A sense of adventure, flexibility and keeping your sense of humour is all that is needed to become an overlander on a trip to Africa.

Africa Group Travel Trip to Africa

OverlandingAfrica.com offers a number of Africa budget tours that cater for a variety of travellers with varying budgets. Whether you choose to go on a low-budget tour or a more luxury one, your fellow travellers will all share one thing with you: a passion for exploring Africa! We often get asked whether it’s a problem that somebody is travelling on his or her own. No, not at all, half our clients are individual travellers. The other half book their trip with friends or as a couple. If you come on your own, you will normally be sharing a tent with somebody from the same sex. Overlanding is a great way of meeting like-minded travellers and we at OverlandingAfrica.com are firm believers in the saying: Strangers are just unknown friends!
