The best time to visit South Africa
Updated: 13th May 2021
With our Overlanding range, we give you amazing adventures, on and off-road, through Africa's most loved destinations. Travelling aboard large, purpose-built trucks, with all the equipment necessary for camping and cooking onboard, overlanding allows you to cover large distances and explore multiple countries in an affordable and fun way. As well as taking in key highlights, our Overland tours are able to get off the beaten track, getting under the skin of the countries you visit.
Whether it's going in search of the Big Five in Africa’s flagship national parks, floating through the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, or scaling the Sossusvlei dunes in Namibia, spend your days enjoying a wide range of exciting activities and camp out each night under a blanket stars.
Group sizes tend to be a little larger on our overland Camping Safaris (with an average of 24), providing a social and fun travel experience with like-minded travellers. Group participation is all part of the experience, helping to set up camp, shop for local produce and cook meals, all creates great camaraderie.
Our Comfort Camping Safaris are slightly different. You won't need to lift a finger, as your experienced three-person crew sets up camp, prepares your meals and cleans up, so you can relax. In addition, you’ll enjoy the comfort of a camp bed rather than a roll mat and travel in a small group (maximum size of 16) escorted by a licensed African guide.
All of our Overlanding tours include a local payment. As well as keeping up front costs down for you, it means that even more of your money stays within the local area. Cost-effective trips and great for the community; can’t be bad!
On our Handpicked range we bring you the most iconic experiences in destinations where you’ll join travellers from other travel brands on your tour, safari or sailing holiday. Collaborating with our carefully handpicked portfolio of local partners, these holidays represent exceptional value and there’ll be plenty of cultural experiences shared with other like-minded travellers.
Group sizes and accommodation standards vary by destination where typical group size is 28 travellers and hotels, boats and safari lodges are of a 3-4 star standard.
