On our African Overland 4×4 Safari Tours, we use Land-Rover Defenders and Discoverys so we can go way off the beaten track. Of course you are welcome to join us in your own 4×4 vehicle.

We have lots of ideas and suggestions so check out our own planned routes that you can join.

On each trip, we take only a maximum of 4 people per 4×4 vehicle, so you never feel over-crowded.

Self-Drive African Overland 4×4 Safari Tour Options…

We understand that some people like to feel in control and would prefer a self-drive option.  Therefore if you want the pleasure of driving yourself, and would like to join one of our Southern African Safari Tours in your own 4×4 vehicle, we can accommodate you.

With our self-drive options, you can tell us where you want to go or join one of our scheduled tours.  We will arrange a tour for you as you drive along with us.

What makes African Overland Safari 4×4 Tours Special?

However you decide to join us, we will do all the planning, including bookings and meals to make your adventure hassle free.

As a result we will help you to experience more of the real Southern African wilderness than the bigger ‘packaged’ overland tours in massive trucks used by most other tour operators can offer.  This gives our guests a richer African overland safari tour experience.
