With Encounters Travel you can expect to travel in comfortable, fully equipped and specially designed expedition vehicles, giving you a great vantage point from which to enjoy the scenery and wildlife.
People often describe their first solo trip as an almost religious experience - to take in new surroundings unfiltered by the prejudices, tastes, or preferences of a travelling companion can be heady stuff.
It’s no secret that taking on Africa in the form of an overland safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The rewards are rich and varied; endless horizons, unspoilt bushveld, truly wild places and truly wild animals.
The big question is, are overland tours expensive? Some say overlanding is among the cheapest ways to visit Africa, and provides a great introduction to the continent for first-timers, while others strongly disagree.
