Overland Travel Africa
Drive South Africa is the official car rental supplier for OverlandingAfrica.com.
Although Drive South Africa encourages everyone to explore Africa and South Africa under their own steam (and in their own vehicle!) – we realise that this is not always possible. Limited time, limited budgets and perhaps the uncertainty of traveling though Africa on one’s own.
If this is the case, then why not consider going on an organised overland tour through Africa? As Overlanding Africa’s official car rental supplier, we highly recommend them as an exciting and worth-while alternative to self-drive in Africa.
Visit the Overlanding Africa website or read below for more.
What is Overlanding in Africa all about?
Overlanding is a safe way of travelling through Africa via road, with a group of like-minded travellers. It is not a bus tour from A to B, it is a way of exploring Africa, where you get to experience the expected as well as the unexpected.
You will not only have the chance to climb the tallest mountain in Africa, jump the highest bungee in the world and raft down the wildest river in the world, but also experience the people of Africa.
Speak in sign-language with a Masai warrior, help build part of a school for Ugandan children, play football with African boys and join the locals in eating “ugali” with your hands!
Africa Adventure Travel
Apart from offering great overland tours, Overlanding Africa has excellent information on each of the following African countries, including interactive World Free Maps, descriptions of all major towns and highlights, a list of adventure activities and more:
- South Africa
There is also a wealth of information on overlanding in general… visas and passports, health and vaccinations, travel tips, fellow travellers, travel insurance, money matters, flight advice and more.
