With such a diverse world, there is no limit to the places we find captivating. This site is primarily about information and experiences, but we do occasionally organise trips to places away from the mainstream. In the past we have taken groups to Algeria and Niger in the Sahara, and ran an 'oldies' overland trip from the UK to Kathmandu. See also Africa OverlandSaudi ArabiaIraqi KurdistanChad and Lebanon


For a different overland route back from Africa to the UK, why not drive across Tibet? Doing this in our 30-year-old Land Rover was one of our most exciting adventures yet!
