See more of East Africa on an overland safari

An overland safari is an excellent way to discover Africa. Mileages are quite long and road conditions can be poor on occasion, but you’ll get to see much more of your chosen destination and the wildlife viewing is unforgettable.

Even on our scheduled small group safaris, we only allocate a maximum of 6 passengers per vehicle, ensuring everyone gets a window seat for excellent wildlife viewing and standing space through the roof hatch when game viewing.

Most our overland safaris are 4x4 safaris. 4x4s can be more comfortable and are able to cross rivers more easily – particularly beneficial in the green season when this can equate to a quicker route. In Kenya, we also offer the great value option of a minibus on some of our shorter itineraries, like our Big Five Safari. In both Kenya and Tanzania you have the option to upgrade to a private vehicle. This is ideal for families or those travelling as a group.
