Overland tours are perfect for both seasoned backpackers and first timers. You’ll get to see a country in a very unique way, and the other people on-board will become your second family. Most things are provided for you in the truck, such as bedding, a kitchen and space for storage, which means you can pack next to nothing and keep that budget to an absolute minimum.
Overland tours are a great option for seeing countries that can be otherwise difficult to travel around, such as Africa and the Middle East. You’ll also get off the beaten track and see some sites that backpackers and travellers rarely get to see, all from the comfort of your own truck!
Overland tours are one of the safest, most sociable and cost effective way of seeing a country. The average overland tour runs from two weeks to eight weeks, making it perfect for a stop gap, especially as your itinerary is planned for you, leaving you to concentrate on having fun.
See the wildlife of Africa on your own safari; bump through Botswana; head to Iran and Iraq to see how different Arabic culture can be; and drive to Victoria Falls in Zambia, the world’s largest waterfall. You can do all of these and more with an overland truck.
