My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another great book and one that is FREE from authors Andy Robinson and Kirsty McGregor at Blackfrog Publishing. These two authors have worked with overlanding tour companies in over 100 countries covering 5 continents.
This useful guide explains that it’s about the experience of the journey and not necessarily the destination. Overlanding was started in the 1960’s by mad Brits, Aussies and Kiwis. Today it’s become a very popular commercial enterprise with purpose built vehicles and tour guides. Travelling this way is no longer just for the young or gap year market, you’re never too old for an adventure.
The book offers advice, explains different style of tours, tells you what to expect in different continents and how to tell if you’d be right for a tour. There’s a list of different companies that provide all sorts of different style tours and there is the reminder that overlanding requires participation. “You get out what you put in”. A tour can be a challenging, fun adventure if you let it. If this sounds like the ideal tour for you there are several links to further reading to wet your appetite.
