THE Best Africa Overland Tours for More than 30 Days

Looking for Africa overland tours for more than 21 days? Without doubt, Nairobi to Cape Town is the most exciting overland tour that I have ever experienced. It takes you through multiple countries and endless encounters with wildlife, locals and stunning landscapes. With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best Africa overland tours for more than 21 days.

Note: You will notice I recommend a specific company for these overland tours. I might receive a small commission for anything you might book through them but please know, the reason for this recommendation is because I believe their are the most reliable tour operator on the market. You can rest assured they have excellent transport, equipment and knowledgeable guides.

1. Serengeti to Cape Town (40 Days)

This incredible adventure was actually my own very first overland tour in Africa. You begin with game safaris in Serengeti National Park and a fun trip to the beaches of Zanzibar. Malawi offers a very local experience and South Luangwa NP promises more wildlife encounters. There is so much to see and do in Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta is one of the wilder experiences that you can find in Africa. The desert landscapes in Namibia is another highlight for many travellers and a lot different to everything that comes before it. You will then travel down through winelands to the city of Cape Town to round off what is truly a once in a lifetime adventure.

2. Cape Town to Serengeti (40 Days)

This is the same overland tour as the one mentioned above except you take the trip from south to north. You may want to consider this option due to the price of flights or simply because you want to spend time in Cape Town before the beginning of your tour. The choice is yours but if I had to choose, I would start the trip in Nairobi and finish in the beautiful city of Cape Town.
