Varying levels of accommodation are offered to suit different budgets and preferences.

Customer feedback

"The crew were tops! Very knowledgable and helpful in everything and being so down to earth! the layout of the truck alone puts all other overland trucks to shame. I had comments from people on the other tours and they all said they were very jealous of our truck. i have enjoyed my time immensely... would do it all over again!"

Ms. Adele Samuel (Istanbul to Cairo - overland expedition)
