Crew Focus : Tour Leader Danny


How long have you been overlanding? Since 2012

What was your first overland trip? Rio to Quito Kingdoms and Carnivals. I really wanted to go to Macchu Picchu and Iguazu Falls and this trip went to both those places…and a lot in between! I wasn’t very well prepared and didn’t even bring a sleeping bag, or roll mat!

Funniest Overlanding moment : there have been a few:

  • Being asked what the altitude is when camped up on a sandy beach
  • a monkey poo-ing down my back in Puerto Maldonado

Happiest overlanding memory: again, there are a few

  • waking up to put the kettle on in the morning, and someone’s already done it! A great feeling!
  • getting a full load of dry laundry back!

Favourite place/activity: El Chalten, Patagonia -beautiful walks, ice climbing, stunning scenery, artisan brewery next door and Patagonian lamb for dinner! Perfect!

Recommended destinations for 2018: The Guianas, and, Patagonia in winter

Best truck meal: Have had so many excellent truck meals. My worst meal stands out more: cheesy pasta…cement! Inedible!

Advice for Oasis travellers:

  • Don’t hook up with another traveller on day 1….day 2 …….in fact any day before day 7!!
  • Bring wet wipes, a head torch and a headphone splitter with you

Final Words of Wisdom: Hydrate before you dehydrate!
