Overlanding West Africa

Not everyone inclined to overland has the appropriate vehicle, or the time to plan and execute a good trip. Overlanding tours have been around since the first days of recreational travel and once again have seen renewed popularity. They offer the comfort of pre-planned travel, guided by experts who know the land, the people, and the experiences no traveler should miss. Overlanding West Africa is one of a handful of premium tour companies offering the overlanding experience to the everyday adventurer.

Sure, it may not have the romance of building your dream Series I and setting out behind the wheel on your own, but for those inclined to take these tours, they’re actually out there––exploring while others tinker on trucks in the driveway and drag fingers over maps. Is travel by brawny tour bus, any less an adventure? Doesn’t look like it to me.
