Overland trips Africa are an amazing way to explore this vast and beautiful continent on a budget and make new friends.  Overland journeys mean hands-on, dust-in-your-hair travel. You need a taste for adventure and a sense of fun. On most overland trips, you put up your own tent, and help with cooking or buying supplies along the way. When the truck gets stuck in mud, you help push it out.

This has got to be the best way to see Africa in a short period of time – brilliant” Jennie and Stuart, Sweden, aged 32 and 34.

I didn’t know I could become such close friends with people in just a week. The trip attracts a great group of people who are so easy to get along with. It was an experience of a lifetime and I will definitely recommend this to my friends and family” 
Sara, Canada/Malaysia, aged 20.

A truly life changing experience, working on wildlife and community volunteering projects in Africa over eight years ago, convinced Gemma Whitehouse to give up her job as a Marketing Manager for an international organisation and use her skills and expertise to set up a company that would offer others the same amazing opportunities with a service second to none - thus Amanzi Travel was born.
