Trans-Africa Tours

Trans Africa Overland Tours are Life Changing

If you're looking for Trans Africa overland tours, then here's a high five. You've got the spirit... and we like it! A trans Africa overland tour is the most challenging type of overland travel and is most definitely not for the faint-hearted, or anyone who lacks a sense of humor. Being with a group of people for such a long period of time will result in life-long friendships. How can you not form strong bonds with a few of your fellow travellers when you're all in the same truck for months on end and sharing unique experiences along the way.

Africa Overland Expeditions

When you decide to go on a budget overland expedition through Africa, expect a true African overland travel expedition. You'll experience Africa's climate extremes. From the heat of the desert, to torrential downpours in the jungles. You'll often be isolated from the rest of the world, away from doctors and telephones, and at times food and water supplies will be limited. You'll be on the adventure of a lifetime.

Africa Overland Expeditions - It's About the Journey, Not the Destination

As with any overland trans Africa adventure through remote parts of Africa, you must expect a high degree of hardship. There will be times when you'll need to help dig the truck out of mud, keep a smile on your face when you're sand matting in the Sahara, and still be ready to participate in the day to day activities with good spirits. You'll need to help buy food, cook and gather fire wood and you should be the kind of person who enjoys a good team effort day after day.

Trans Africa Overland Tours and Flexibility

Trans Africa overland tours are unpredictable. With an overland travel expedition in Africa it's not always possible to follow the itinerary to the last letter as it's planned from when you first hopped on the trip... but that's half the fun of it!

Trans Africa Overland Trip Admin Ducks in a Row
