Traditionally a camping experience the Africa overland travel concept has evolved into offering budget accommodated overland tours in Africa.

> Camping Tours
Our Africa camping tours involve travelling by overland truck and making use of two man dome tents for accommodation in the various campsites in Africa along the way. Occasionally you may even bush-camp. This means the crew find a suitable spot, pull off the road and you are in the African bush.

Our short break Africa overland tours are ideal for travellers who don't have a lot of time, or are looking to select their own add-on short tour in Africa as an addition to any of our standard Africa overland tours. Our short breaks in Africa cover all the major highlights.

Trans Africa tours is real overland travel at it’s best and are a challenge not for the faint hearted or those who lack a sense of humor. Digging the truck out of Ugandan mud, sand matting in the Sahara and still participating in day to day activities such as buying food, cooking and gathering fire wood.
