What You Need to Know About Overland Tours
How comfortable is the overland truck? And where do I sleep?
This will differ depending on the company you choose, but you can generally expect comfortable coach-style seating, lockers for your personal items, and air-conditioning. As for accommodations, you’ll likely be sleeping in a tent for the majority of your trip (provided by the tour company). If you’d prefer to sleep in a hotel or lodge, explore our full range of overland tours and use our filters to search for trips with the type of accommodations that suit you best.
How often do you have access to wifi? Is it easy to keep your electronics charged?
If you’re heading into remote or off the beaten track areas, your access to wifi will likely be limited — which is the perfect opportunity to disconnect and live in the moment! Alternatively, you can contact your mobile service provider prior to your trip to see if they offer data in the destinations you’re travelling through. You’ll have access to charging facilities at most campsites, with the exception of wild camps.
Why do prices differ so much between companies?
The cost can vary depending on a range of factors, including your destination of choice, the length of your trip, and your travel style. Luckily, TourRadar has hundreds of overland trips suited to every budget.
