Our expedition vehicles are either Renault 4x4's and Scania 4x2 & 6x4 trucks of between 220 and 300 horsepower.
They are custom built in the UK with practicality and comfort in mind, and are designed to handle and deal with the terrain and climates we encounter along the way on our trips. Regular maintenance is carried out by drivers, who are trained at our workshops. You can rest assured that we own and operate all of our own expedition vehicles.

Your Ultimate Expedition Crew
Our crews on our Ultimate Expeditions have gained considerable knowledge and experience of our Overland Adventure trips before they embark on these Ultimate Expeditions, which in turn equips and enables them to deal with any problems and challenges that may arise on these more difficult expeditions. They have a passion and an enthusiasm for their work and for the countries and places we visit.
Except in exceptional circumstances, all vehicles on our Ultimate Expeditions trips have two crew members - a Driver and a Tour Leader.
Their experience and knowledge will enable you to get the most out of your trip and to have an unforgettable experience. Their roles are many and varied and include amongst other things, maintaining the truck throughout the trip, organising group activities and bookings, managing trip funds, overseeing group rosters, organising border crossings and permits, organising the day to day running of the trip and passing on general information to the group.
However, Oasis Tour Leaders are not guides as such, so do not expect them to hold your hand every step of the way on your trip, get out and experience things for yourself, read the guide books, get lost in markets, met the local people and talk to them - its all part of the experience!
