Rio De Janeiro to Cuzco tour by overland truck

This trip is perhaps the best kept secret of our South American offerings and is (we believe) offered by no other operator. It is an extraordinary journey from Rio, across the heart of Brazil and into the Amazon Jungles of Brazil and Peru. It then climbs through pristine cloud forests, up into the Andes and onto the Peruvian Altiplano, before finishing in the beautiful Urubamba Valley and the heartland of the Inca Empire, Cusco. En route, there is trekking in the beautiful Brazilian table top mountains of Chapada dos Guimaraes, Amazon jungle trips, time to explore the wonderful wetlands of the Pantanals to hopefully find a jaguar and the opportunity to visit unique local communities on ...

Silk route, Bishkek to Beijing tour by overland truck

The western end of the Silk Route, is arguably the most historic. This was the end that started it all, when the Han Chinese emperor Wudi commissioned Zhang Qian to open up trade to Central Asia and to map the route. The link between the Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan and China is the remote Torugart Pass, and our route takes us through this high Tian Shan mountain pass to the fabled city of Kashgar with its unique Sunday Market. Then there is the vast Taklimakan Desert, the western end of the Gobi and some stunning scenery complete with oasis towns of major historic importance to the Silk Road. The route then climbs onto the lower slopes of the wild Tibetan Plateau through ... Read more >

Rio Carnival small group tour

Rio’s annual Carnival is the greatest party on Earth and a once in a lifetime experience with six days of street festivals, pulsating samba rhythms and a city at one with itself, having the most amazing time. And of course no visit to Rio would be complete without a visit to explore Sugar Loaf and Corcovado. The highlight of the week is the “premiership” Samba School Parades in the Sambadrome. We take our places in Sector 11, the party sector, to really soak up the atmosphere. If you want to get totally involved, you can take the option of joining a Samba School in full costume for the parade; an incredible experience. Read more >

La Paz to Buenos Aires overland truck tour

From Bolivia’s high Altiplano to the heart of Argentina’s grasslands, this trip takes you through some of South America’s most beautiful landscapes.

West African overland tour, Dakar to Freetown

This has to be one of the best overland routes in West Africa, due to its diversity. Starting in the Sarhelean country of Senegal, at the fascinating city of Dakar, and travelling south through to the stunning beaches of Sierra Leone, a country that is beginning to really embrace tourism, there is so much to see along the way. With wonderful trekking to remote waterfalls, canoe trips to local villages, great opportunity for wetland birdlife and some absolutely stunning beaches, this trip really will surprise travellers.

Sudan small group tour, 8 days

As a destination, Sudan is so often overlooked but to journey through the beautiful Nubian desert is a wonderful experience. Clustered along the banks of the Nile, are some of the greatest sites of antiquity. They may not rival Luxor or Abu Simbel in grandeur and scale, but in sheer, artistic beauty and isolation, they are second to none. The petit temples of Naga and Musawwarat are simply lovely, and the experience of camping under the stars in the wilds of the desert behind the Pyramids of Meroe is serene. Add in a boat trip across the Nile to the Temple Of Sulb, with its towering columns and you get a true sense of what is hidden in the Sudanese Sahara. Khartoum, sits on the confluence ... Read more >
