Overland truck & dome tent

More than a truck


An overland truck is much more comfortable than you would imagine. But you do have to spend quit a few days on it so it hás to be comfortable. Specially with long days of driving from one destination to another. 

Sleeps 2 but has space for 3


  • Dome tents with integrated mosquito nets
  • Tents are three person dome tents. To ensure a good amount of space only two people sleep in each tent
  • The tents are made from rip-stop canvas and have a sewn in ground sheet
  • Mostly provided with a large separate fly sheet to give you extra protection in heavy rain


We offer different group tour with different overland trucks. Specifications will be found in teh Tour Dossiers of the trip. Not every overland truck has a personal locker in the truck itself. 

Camp mattresses

We provide individual 4 inch thick high density foam mats covered in rip-stop material.

Tables and stools

Camp stools and trestle tables will be provided.

Dietary requests

Vegan, lactose or vegetarian? Please tell us in advance so we can inform the tour leader. We can cater for most allergies or dietary requirements. However, please be slightly flexible in your requests. Africa is still primitive so fresh veggies are not a problem but vegan pre-made hamburgers etc. you cannot expect.
