What is Overlanding

It is vehicle dependent self-reliant travel over land to remote locations where ‘journey’ is the principal goal. It involves a broad series of skillsets:

  • basic engineering review for equipment selection
  • management and planning skills for expedition logistics
  • strong awareness of how to interact with foreign cultures
  • processes to ensure that there is minimal environmental impact.

Overland travel requires the adventurer to drive or ride great distances in a 4wd or on an adventure motorcycle, demanding competence in varied terrain scenarios and vehicle recovery.
