Welcome to African Overland 4×4 Safari Tours

We offer personalized, unique tours of Southern Africa…

To experience the best African Overland 4×4 safari tours and see our amazing African wildlife and scenery you need to join us on a trip of a life time.

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 for your African Overland 4×4 Safari Tour Experience, so be sure to check out our own planned routes that you can join.

We regularly visit some of the most beautiful and wild places in South Africa, Lesotho (Sani Pass is a must!), Botswana, Namibia and other Southern African countries, and would love to have you join us.

On each trip, we take only a maximum of 4 people per 4×4 vehicle, so you never feel over-crowded, be sure to check out our Self Drive Tours Options and our Bronze, Silver and Gold Packages too!

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

While all of our tours offer you the chance to join us in our fleet of landys, 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.
