Egypt & Sudan overland tour

Really experience Egypt and Sudan as we follow the Nile and explore the gems of the ancient civilisations along this mighty river. This trip of course visits the Egyptian highlights of the Pyramids of Giza as well as Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel, but offers so much more. We take an overnight Felucca to experience the life of the river, visit the bustling city of Alexandria and relax on the Red Sea coast. In Sudan we explore the deserts, towns and the great temples and pyramids of the Nubian region, learning about the Kingdom of the Kush. In Khartoum we have the opportunity to witness one of Africa’s geographical highlights, the confluence of the Nile. Locally known as Al Mogran this is where ...Read more >

Annapurna and Chitwan overland truck tour in Nepal

This beautiful little journey shows us some of the less visited parts of Nepal and includes a couple of rural heritage visits to small settlements, with wonderful heritage stays at Nuwakot and Bandipur. No visit to Nepal would be complete without exploring Kathmandu or Pokhara and, of course, the plains of Chitwan National Park in search of rhino, bears, deer and tiger. Although this trip is not designed as a trekking trip, we have a three day period in the Annapurna Region for hikes and village walks along a ridge with marvellous views of the high Himalayas. Here we stay at a remote retreat with yoga, cows to milk and other calming activities.Read more >

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.

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’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 no visit to Rio de Janeiro 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 join a Samba School in full costume for the parade; an incredible experience. Read more >

China to Laos overland truck tour

Southern China and northern Indo China are extraordinary regions and should be seen together. This trip takes the traveller from some of China’s real tourist highlights such as Xi’an and the Terracotta Army and the Giant Pandas at Chengdu, to some of its wonderful hidden gems such as the trekking in the beautiful Tiger Leaping Gorge or climbing to the summit of Wudang Shan, birthplace of Tai Chi.

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 ...Read more >

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 >

Kathmandu to Delhi overland tour

There is no better way of visiting Northern India, than balancing it with Nepal…. chalk and cheese, or chaos and calm. In Nepal, we hike through the gentle foothills, through rural villages, overlooked by the mighty Annapurnas; we stay in beautiful heritage homes in remote towns and villages and we look for the tigers and rhinos of Chitwan National Park. Crossing into India, the frenetic pace of life is amplified to a crescendo on the banks of the Ganges at Varanasi and in the hustle and bustle of Delhi. Our route takes us through the heartland of the Mogul Empire with its fabulous monuments and forts; the Taj Mahal may be the most famous, but Agra’s Red Fort and Akbar’s great city of ...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. Most stunning of all is the dramatic expanse of the salt plains of Salar de Uyuni and we will cross the Altiplano along remote, seldom travelled routes, criss-crossing wild plateaux studded with volcanoes and lakes full of flamingos; it is truly spectacular. Bolivia was the economic engine of the Spanish empire and nowhere more so than the historic city of Potosi with its giant silver and tin mines and the political centre of La Paz. We descend from the Andes into Chile’s Atacama Desert, to visit the atmospheric town of San Pedro before ...Read more >

Laos, Cambodia and Thailand overland truck tour

This is a great trip that links Laos, Cambodia and Thailand together. With over 10 days in Laos, we have plenty of time to slowly explore this beautiful and serene country, with its history, beautiful people and amazing landscapes. By the time we get to Cambodia we will be fully in tune with the Mekong and its stunning sunset views, but there are few better than at Kratie in the northeast of Cambodia. Cambodia’s modern history is not a happy one, but Phnom Penh wears it with resilience in public and no visitor can be left unmoved by their visit to this lovely Mekong City. Of course, no trip to this country would be complete without a thorough exploration of the many incredible temples ...Read more >
