West Africa Overland Travel: Our Ethos
We are overlanders. We do this because we love being on the road, discovering new places, setting up camp amongst a beautiful backdrop, meeting fascinating people and the camaraderie that doing all this together with a group of like-minded people creates.
We know about the nitty-gritty, nuts and bolts logistics of running overland trips; we know how to maintain an overland truck, drive it and fix it when it breaks down; we are passionate about adventure and getting out there to those far-flung places that people rarely see to experience them as they really are.
We work hard to make sure you get the best out of the trip, but we are not tour guides or hand-holders. Our job is to deal with the day to day logistics of running the trip and to take you to those hard-to-get-to places. We believe in letting you decide what you want to do when we arrive in a place, not what we think you should do.
We try to make sure that the communities we travel through benefit from our trips as much as possible and that the local suppliers we use get a fair deal. We don’t profess to be saving the world, we are not a charity, but we are committed to sustainable tourism initiatives and help out when we can and where we hope it will make a positive difference.
Overlanding with us is a unique and exciting way to experience the beautiful landscapes, fascinating culture, music, art and crazy chaos of West Africa.
It is becoming increasingly difficult in our regulated world to do anything truly adventurous and different – we don’t like that – we enjoy the challenges, the excitement, the highs and lows, and the friendships that are forged on overland trips.
