What Oasis Overland Can Offer You
Oasis crew  are able to save most of what they earn each trip as their main day to day expenses are taken care of. After 1 year of employment an extra bonus system comes into place.

How do I apply?
Deciding to work in overland travel is essentially a lifestyle choice. We will not promise you rich financial rewards, so if it's a fat salary that motivates you don't read any further. What Oasis WILL offer you is the experience of a lifetime. The chance to travel in many different countries and continents and meet different people from all over the world.

You will certainly miss the comforts of home life and have to put up with some uncomfortable beds, you will probably get ill at times and not be able to call in sick as you will have a group of 20 people full of energy waiting for you. But you will see amazing sights and have to face up to, and conquer many challenges most people would never encounter.    Most of our crew stay with us 4 or 5 years and are able to experience all the 4 continents in which we operate.

Oasis provide comprehensive emergency medical cover while you are abroad with us. All your essential costs, such as visa's, meals, accommodation are covered by Oasis and all our crew are backed up by our Crises Management plans should you be faced with a serious crises on one of your trips.

The Oasis HQ and workshop also has crew accommodation and if we have an overland vehicle in our UK workshop, or are building a new vehicle, we can give you some training in the UK. However, most of our training takes place 'on the road'. This means you will get as much as 10 to 12 weeks training if in Africa.


Contact us at and send us a CV about yourself detailing your travel experience and we will email or post you an application form for a Tour Leader or Driver.

Upon receiving your completed application form we will decide if we think you are suitable and ask you to visit us at our Throope Down Office near Salisbury for an informal interview.
