Strap in and prepare yourself for the ride of a lifetime, crossing deserts, jungles and even entire continents on an overland tour. This is adventure travel redefined, as you head way off the beaten track into remote communities, challenging environments and destinations with little or no tourist infrastructure. An overland tour is not a luxury holiday, with accommodation ranging from comfortable hostels to wild camping under the stars. You’ll travel in a small group by truck, van or train, accompanied by expedition-hardened tour leaders and local experts. It’s a communal experience, with everyone expected to muck in and help with tasks like cooking and pitching the tents, and you can expect to make friends for life as you travel through countries as diverse as Sudan, Bolivia and Uzbekistan.
