Overland Adventure Travel

Overland Adventure Travel

Overland adventure travel is the ideal way to spend a few weeks away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Such a trip can encompass cultures and places that you would usually only see on a television special. Overland adventure travel allows you to get involved and get to know the world around you. From helping to set up camp under the stars to choosing which activities to do, this is the type of vacation for you if you want something more than what a generic holiday package can offer.

The Practical Side of Overland Adventure Travel

Overland adventure travel offers amazing experiences, but it is also very different from any other type of holiday and has many practical aspects that need to be considered:

  • Insurance – While travel insurance is always a good plan, it is particularly important on an overland adventure travel trip. These trips usually take place over an extended period of time and can traverse some rugged and remote landscapes. While no one expects anything to go wrong, it is always better to be safe than sorry and insurance can help you out in the event of any emergency, no matter where in the world you are. It is a requirement on any Oasis trip that every person has their own personal travel insurance.
  • Visas – Most overland adventure travel tours can move through a variety of different countries, each requiring a visa. Most of these visas can be obtained en route, but it is advisable to check with your tour operator before you leave. If they can be obtained at each border, make sure that your passport is valid and that you have enough US Dollars to pay for each one.
  • Climate – Overland adventure tours travel to some far-flung places, each of which often has very different weather conditions. Finding out beforehand what each place is like at that particular time of year can be extremely helpful when packing. Overland adventure travel often involves hiking and packing light makes things much easier. Once you know the climate, you can pack properly and eliminate any extra weight.
  • Vaccinations – Many remote regions that can be safely explored on overland adventure travel trips do require special medical precautions and vaccinations. Malaria is prominent in many African countries and many other areas require tetanus or yellow fever vaccination certificates. You should always check with your GP or Travel Clinic before leaving, so that you’re prepared.
