Where we pride ourselves on offering something a little bit different to the adventure tours offered by many other overland 4x4 tour operators because we, the owners, personally join and guide all our overland adventure tours.

At Southern Africa Overland, we use only the quintessential Southern African overland adventure vehicles, Land Rover Defenders and Discovery’s, see our overland 4×4 vehicles here.  As a result of our unique guiding and vehicle policies, we are able to get to more places and help you experience more of Southern Africa than the big overland tours in trucks used by most other tour operators, giving our clients a richer overland adventure experience.

On each trip, we take only a maximum of 4 clients per 4×4 vehicle, and we keep our tour groups small and personal; so that you never feel as if you are joining a ‘package overland tour’.

If you would like us to tailor make an overland adventure 4×4 trip in Southern Africa to suit your needs, or would like us to contact you with prices and suggestions for your Southern African overland adventure experience or wilderness trail holiday; please click here to use our handy contact form to tell us more about what you’re interested in.
