  • Hop on board an exhilarating safari through Kenya’s national parks. Glide along the waters of Lake Naivasha and attempt the peaks of Mount Kenya. Visit local communities and swap stories with fellow travelers around the campfire.
  • Tour the endless grasslands of Masai Mara in Tanzania, discover amazing wildlife at Ngorongoro or take in the spices and aromas of the balmy seaside town of Zanzibar.
  • Trek in search of endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda and enjoy the company of crocodiles and hippos as you cruise along the Kazinga Channel.
  • Spend time in Botswana where buffalo, wildebeest and zebra can been seen gathering around waterholes on the prairies of the Etosha National Park.
  • Catch a glimpse of South Africa’s attractions including Cape Town and the Cederberg mountain district.
  • Experience the ultimate overland truck adventure as you crisscross the length and breadth of Africa for months on end, roughing it over harsh terrain, withstanding unexpected obstacles but having fun all the way.

Tips

  • Factor in which countries you want to visit; your interests, budget and the number of days you want to travel. With this you can then opt for a well-rounded guided tour.
  • Be prepared for a bumpy ride as not all roads are sealed in the remote areas you’ll be exploring. Always wear your seat belt and do not travel in the dark, especially in rural areas.
  • Adventure can be found around every corner. You’ll never know when or where you’ll have to deal with a breakdown or a delay in the itinerary due to situations out of your control. Pitch in wherever you can and remember, it’s a team effort!
  • Brush up on your social skills and make friends with your fellow travellers as you’ll be traveling with the group for days and weeks on end. Remember that you’ll be cooking, washing, packing and cleaning as a team.
  • Toilets are very basic and you’ll probably have to relieve yourself in the bush. Don’t forget to pack anti-bacterial soap, toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
  • Pack books, board games or a deck of cards to keep yourself occupied while you’re on the road.
  • Take a quick shower at every given opportunity as it will help you stay fresh and relaxed.
  • Stock up on snacks and beer at stops. Beer can be chilled in the chiller, on board the vehicle.
