Ever dreamed of driving across Africa?

The ultimate in exploration across “The Dark Continent”, a Trans-Africa expedition is an intrepid and exciting adventure to plan. These journeys by their very nature are longer than the usual safari and we can help you plan all the logistics for trips lasting several weeks or months. We have seven bases located throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and some of the finest vehicles on the continent, so we can help with every stage of your preparation and the trip itself.  Expeditions on this scale can take months of planning and time spent poring over maps and discussing routes and locations to include along the way.  Using our expertise and with the safety net of our network of bases in Africa we can work with you to build a truly bespoke journey of a lifetime. If you have an idea for a journey – no matter how far off the beaten track – it is likely we can help.

Needing the right vehicle

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.

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.
