The newest addition to the Travel Marmot and very much a work in progress, this collection of articles looks to answer any questions about overlanding.

Having completed more than a year of my life on contrasting overlanding trips and spent another year working for a small, specialist firm, have learned some valuable lessons on what lies ahead, how best to prepare and – believe me – how not to do it.

Over the coming months (or when time and inspiration allows), we’ll look at what overlanding is, how to pick your perfect trip, who your travelling colleagues might be (and how to live with them for several months) and try to answer any questions.

Until then, check out this video from the Oasis Trans Africa adventure of 2014-15, told from the view of probably the most important part of the whole trip – the truck.
