Awesome Overland Adventures and How to Start Your Own

Overland adventures are becoming more commonplace today, but most people do not know that Overlanding adventures have been undertaken since the 40s.

If you’re planning your own Overlanding adventure or are curious how your adventure stacks up against other Overlanders, what better way than to look at other adventures? 

We’ve compiled a list of both past and present overland adventures that inspire us to help you gauge other Overland adventures.

Colonel LeBlanc Overland Adventure

What is considered as one of the first motorized Overlanding expeditions took place in 1949 when Colonol LeBlanc took his then brand new Land Rover Series I 80 inch from England to Abyssinia, which is now known as Ethiopia.

London to Singapore

Not long after Colonel LeBlanc completed his journey, Land Rover was the center of attention again for another daring journey about to get underway.

This time, a group of students convinced Land Rover to provide them with two brand new series I’s to travel almost 10 000 miles from the UK capital to Singapore.


A more modern take on Overlanding in a Land Rover Defender is being undertaken by Leigh and Steph in their Defender 130 on their journey to Overland the world.

The couple started their journey in their first Defender in France, which was sadly later written off in Portugal after being hit by a truck.

Luckily nobody was injured, and the daring couple soon found themselves behind the wheel of another 130 to continue their journey of Overlanding the world.

After taking their new Defender to the talented team at Newman 4×4 in France to make the vehicle Overland ready, they were soon on the road with quite the Overlanding adventure in front of them.

Their journey sees them cross many countries with breathtaking terrain with many ups and downs along the way. 

Check their Youtube

Epic Family Road Trip

If you think Overlanding with your family is not possible, this family of 5 has been on an Overland adventure for over five years and even acquired a new family member in the form of a dog along the way.

Their two trusty Rubicons they like to call home for most of their time are affectionately known as Worsley and Vandi. 

The family has traveled extensively through North America and appear to be particularly fond of British Columbia. Their well-equipped vehicles have taken them to some extremely remote areas and awe-inspiring scenery that not many people will ever see.

Living on the road for as long as this family has, comes with certain challenges, but always the optimists, this family used the road to their advantage and documented their journey.

Learning many skills along the way, from mechanical to video editing, it’s easy to see this crew doesn’t take anything half-hearted and gives everything 100%

To see the exceptional video quality and follow this family’s Overland adventure check them out on Youtube.

The Road Chose Me

The Road Chose Me is the name of Dan Grec’s Overlanding adventures that sees him traveling some of the more extreme places on this earth.

Dan’s first journey took him from Alaska   down to the south of Argentina in nothing but a stock Jeep Wrangler .

After saving for a few years, Dan was at it again, except this time in a land less traveled by Overlanders, Africa.

For this Overland adventure that would circumnavigate Africa, a little more suitable vehicle was required. Dan purchased a Rubicon and added some extras to accommodate for a more comfortable journey.

The addition of a pop-top roof would make it easier to camp in unknown territory. 

From watching Dan’s videos, it seems that this was quite a harrowing journey. From crossing fields with active mines to navigating corruption, it’s not a journey for the faint of heart.

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Dan took it all in his stride and bonded quite well with the locals.

Check his Youtube

How to start your own Overland Adventure

If these stories have got you eager to take on your own Overland adventure, we’re here to tell you that you can do it.

Find the proper vehicle –  There is no one vehicle suits all. There are many people Overlanding in many different vehicles, and sometimes it comes down to personal taste. Today I Overland in a Land Rover Defender , but I’ve previously traversed Canada in a Toyota 4Runner and a Dodge Ram 1500.

Plan the route – The second step is to plan the route. There are many apps available today to help you do this. You can use Gaia Gps or OnX maps to show you trails that you can travel. They are both fantastic GPS’s and which you choose is a personal preference.

Whichever you choose, you can use it in conjunction with iOverlander, where you can find great locations shared by other Overlanders. You can even find locations shared by the Epic Family Road Trip

Equip your vehicle – Now that you know where you are going to be traveling, you can equip your vehicle for that type of journey and terrain. Ask yourself questions like, do you need 4WD or will 2WD work, or will you need a locker ?

If you are planning on Overlanding for weeks or months, you may need a fridge or solar power .

Recovery gear is always needed, and if you are planning on spending considerable time off-road or are alone, I recommend you equip your vehicle with a winch.

You are now ready to take your Overlanding adventure. Even if your first adventure is just a weekend away, it’s a step in the right direction. We all have our own ideas of the perfect Overland adventures.

Take inspiration from the adventures above and learn from the experts. 

Get out there, enjoy it, and Tread Lightly .

Overland Trucks & Travel

overland travel adventures

We are Pete and Kirsten, and we are overland travel addicts. Having been lucky enough to work in the overland tour industry for many years including owning our own overland travel company, we are now heading off on independent overland adventures with our 2 kids.

Overland Trucks

We love overland trucks.  As in, we *really* love them.  Have pictures of them on our walls.  Had models of overland trucks on the table at our wedding.  You know, that sort of love.  After we had kids we sold off all our old overland trucks and we were truck-free for a couple of years.  But the lure of overland trucks was too much for us to resist and so Pete started building us a very different type of overland truck for us – designed as a home on wheels for our family of 4.

Meet “ Odyssey ” our awesome new truck!  Follow our adventures on Facebook and Instagram , and on our blog posts .

Overland Tours

Overland tours & safari adventure holidays.

Our adventure overland tours take in many of their region's cultural, scenic and wildlife highlights, often travelling through several countries to give you a truly in depth experience, seeing many places off the beaten track as well as the highlights you don't want to miss. Many operate in both directions, so please feel free to ask us about extra dates and routings. Although arrangements within each tour vary slightly in principle we offer these tours in two ways, either camping based, or 'accommodated'. The camping tours are the lower budget option, while the accommodated tours use comfortable mid-range local hotels, permanent camps (with beds) and lodges. We want you to enjoy these tours in comfort while still retaining a genuinely adventurous experience.

We travel in comfortable, fully equipped and specially designed expedition vehicles, giving you a great vantage point from which to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. All have seatbelts, mobile chargers, and carry two or three experienced crew who will drive, guide and cook for you during the tour. We also keep the maximum number of people on each tour relatively low, with maximum numbers on accommodated tours ranging from 12 to 18 people which means plenty of window space as well as plenty of personal contact with your guides. Camping tours may have up to 24 people in the group.

Overall, these overland adventure tours offer great value for money whilst giving you the comfort and security of an organised trip. We're sure they will give you a great opportunity to chance to create lasting memories, which will keep you dreaming of returning for more. These tours are not just for the young and intrepid; our accommodated tours have an average age of around 40, and we regularly carry people in their 60s and 70s, as well as 20s and 30s, making for interesting mixed groups. So as long as you're relatively mobile (there are steps up into the vehicles), and have a 'can-do' attitude, then they'll be fine for you.

With overland tours there is often one main long route that the expedition vehicle will follow (for example, Cape Town to Victoria Falls). You can either do the full trip, or if you have less time available or a particular interest in just some of the countries en-route then you can choose one of our tours that just forms a section of the full route. The group makeup may therefore vary slightly as you go along with some people joining or leaving along the way.

In the process, they became the first Indians to drive around the world and also created multiple world records on this unprecedented journey.

  • Dates & Prices

This short Moscow tour will give you a true taste of the history, culture and incomparable urban vibe that define one of the world’s largest metropolises. In just three days, this Moscow itinerary takes in all the most iconic sights of this attraction-packed destination. After two and half days getting acquainted with the city, we’ve set time aside for you to explore Moscow your way and discover your own favourite hang-outs in a city overflowing with hidden treasures

3-Day Moscow Tour Highlights:

  • Panoramic Tour of Moscow: See Moscow beyond the postcard images on a private excursion by car through the city streets including a drive along the banks of the Moskva River. Visit the famous Bolshoi Theatre, pass by Gorky Park and the Novodevichy Convent, and admire the city from on high at the Sparrow Hill observation platform.
  • Moscow Historical City Centre Guided Walking Tour : Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of one of the world’s biggest metropolises and discover local haunts on foot, including the Red Square, the Kremlin and the multi-coloured domes of St Basil’s Cathedral.
  • Armory Chamber tour: Explore the endless treasures of this unique museum, displaying the wealth accumulated by Russian rulers from the 12th century until the October Revolution of 1917. Walking through the exhibition halls is a journey through the centuries.
  • Moscow Metro Tour : Go deep underground on a subway tour of the famous Moscow metro. The world’s deepest metro system is renowned for its palatial, art-adorned stations, complete with marble columns and chandeliers.

On your first day, you’ll be treated to a panoramic, drive-by tour of Moscow to get a feel for the immense scale of one of the world’s most rapidly developing urban centres. The city’s history unfolds in real-time as you pass lavish imperial mansions, solemn Soviet structures and luxurious modern shopping centres.

Day two kicks off exploring Moscow’s historic centre on foot, followed by a tour of the Kremlin, the seat of Russian power and political intrigue for centuries. Stand in the Red Square, surrounded by the stunning architecture as you hear stories of the people and events behind many of Moscow’s most iconic landmarks.

On your final day, we’ll head beneath the city for a tour of the Moscow Metro and its famously ornate underground stations. Art lovers should hit up one of Moscow’s many world-class galleries such as the Tretyakov State Gallery, the Pushkin Museum or Garage, Moscow’s cutting-edge contemporary art museum. History fans can follow a Soviet trail through the city including Stalin’s Bunker, while those seeking a more indulgent experience can browse trendy neighbourhoods like Kitay Gorod or shop for everything from fashion to kitsch souvenirs at the enchanting Izmaylovo Flea Market. Foodies can head to one of the countless speciality stores sampling vodka, caviar and chocolate.

If you only have a few days to spend in Moscow, this tour will ensure you make the most of your time in the city. Let the experts navigate you through this complex and occasionally overwhelming capital, giving you plenty of time to soak up the city’s most unmissable attractions.

Russia Moscow Tour

Day 1 Panoramic city tour

Welcome to the glorious capital of Russia, Moscow! You’ll be met by your driver at the airport and taken to your centrally located hotel.

After check-in and rest, meet your private guide at the hotel lobby for a comprehensive tour of Moscow by car. Visit the starkly contrasting Theatre Square to see the stunning Bolshoi Theatre, pass Tverskaya Street, the city’s main boulevard and home to the landmark Yeleseyevskiy Grocery Store.

You’ll enjoy a panoramic drive along the Moskva River, where a huge, controversial state of Peter the Great was erected. Pass by the legendary Gorky Park and the White House before a stop at the architecturally stunning Novodevichy Convent, and the observation platform at Sparrow Hills, for a bird’s eye view over this staggering megalopolis.

Day 2 Red Square and Kremlin

After breakfast at the hotel, your guide will take you on a walking tour of the historical city centre. Stroll through the Red Square, the hub of cultural life in Moscow, with its elaborate ‘stone flower’ fountain and fantasy-like St Basil’s Cathedral – a postcard-perfect symbol of the nation. Admire the grandiose façade of GUM, the city’s most luxurious shopping centre, and visit Alexander’s Garden, with its eternal flame and the chance to watch a changing of the guards.

Break for lunch before continuing on a tour of the Kremlin and Armoury Chamber, famous of its collection of tsarist fashion, with regalia such as jewel-encrusted crowns, orbs and sceptres as well as arms and armour, exotic gifts from the leaders of faraway lands, and an illustrious case of Imperial Faberge eggs.

As an option* spend an evening on a sumptuous dinner cruise, taking in the stunning sights and city lights of this mesmerising metropolis by night.

Day 3 Metro and Arbat Street

Start a day with a tour of Metro, stopping on the way to marvel at some of the most elaborately decorated stations of the world-famous Moscow subway system. Take a stroll along Old Arbat street - the most famous street in Moscow. Through the centuries Arbat used to be one of the most bohemian places in Moscow. Today Arbat is a promenade full of small cozy cafes and street life.

The afternoon is free for you to either enjoy the rest of the day on your own or choose among optional excursions to explore more of Moscow. Visit the Tretyakov Gallery or Pushkin State Museum to admire Russian art. Join locals for a stroll at the Gorky or VDNH park.

Visit beautiful Kolomeskoye Estate or Izmailovo Kremlin, or spend a day exploring the beautiful city of the Golden Ring (Russian province) - Sergiev Posad. In the evening you will be transferred to the airport for your departure to your next destination.
