Overland Adventures

Our overland adventures celebrate the world’s most intriguing destinations. To thoroughly immerse ourselves in these destinations, from India to Namibia, we rely on several modes of travel, from 4x4 vehicles to local motorcoaches/mini-vans and boats. Our overland adventures typically include iconic regional accommodations and world-class urban hotels. In Africa, the camps we choose combine outstanding wilderness experiences with comfortable lodging – imagine strolling from your room to a deck overlooking a watering hole for elephants and rhinos. In Mongolia, you’ll stay in a traditional ger camp, nomadic-style tents set in remote wilderness. And while searching for tigers in India, we find ourselves at a romantic jungle lodge, with modern amenities and proximity to the wilderness we seek. The itineraries we offer vary from year to year; below please find our upcoming overland adventures.
