The Right Way To Travel

Buying and preparing a vehicle for a prolonged overland journey is a difficult thing to do. Not only do you need to choose a vehicle that is appropriate for your route but it also needs to be reliable.

After buying a vehicle it may need equipping, roof tents, storage, water tanks, spare tyre mounts. After equipping the vehicle it needs to be insured and shipped (most likely with a carnet de passage). All of this takes a huge amount of time and money.

Expedition Planning

Safari Drive have been operating vehicles in Southern and Eastern Africa since 1993.

There are very few roads in these parts of the continent that we don’t know, so instead of planning a route from scratch, talk to one of our experts and let them put our experience into your trip. We’re sure you’ll find this invaluable.
