Africa overland vacations

For some people, one country is not enough and indeed, one can never get enough of Africa. Which is why Africa overland vacations appeal so much, usually traveling in small groups, with expert guides taking you on tried and tested itineraries on extraordinary African odysseys. Crossing the Sahara, Victoria Falls to Cape Town or indeed a bit of both, going from Cairo to Cape Town are all popular and perfect routes to really get the most ‘out of Africa’.
