There is an amazing way to travel the length and breadth of Africa and that is overland. This amazing continent offers so many stunning and unique places to visit. By far the best way to travel on your Safari Holiday is in a Safari Expedition Truck. They are custom designed and purpose built for the harsh terrain of the continent. They are completely self-sufficient, carrying enough fuel, food and water to last for days before the need to stock up again, hence offering the opportunity to get off the beaten track and out into the wilds of East Africa. Overland travel is a great way to meet new friends, most of the safari trucks offer seating for about 20-30 passengers. Accommodation is usually camping, with tents and mattresses carried inside the vehicle. Stools are stored in lockers and once you have arrived in camp and set up your tent then you can grab a stool and sit around the camp fire with a cold drink.
Cooking is shared by everyone on a rota basis; some amazing culinary delights are produced over a charcoal fire or a simple gas burner. The expedition truck kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you will need to prepare food and beverages on route. The vehicle has a battery system that will run interior and exterior lights so that even when it is dark you can see your way around. Quite often you will find a fridge on board, a great asset to keep the food and drinks fresh and cold. For long drive days there is a music system and speakers onboard so that you can enjoy some driving tunes. A lot of the overland routes are popular and once you arrive in a campsite you will meet other likeminded travellers to share a beer with and a story or two. Voluntourism is becoming increasingly popular and should you decide to embark on a Uganda Safari you may certainly get to travel in one of these incredible vehicles and enjoy the opportunity of seeing many miles of this breathtaking continent.Travelling Overland is the Best Way to see East Africa by Pat Mitchell
