          What is overlanding?

          Overlanding is a type of adventure travel in which the experience of the journey is the primary purpose. Typically involving off-road travel in rugged vehicles such as 4x4 trucks or SUVs, overlanding embraces self-sufficiency and camping in remote areas. Whether you’re off-grid for a few days or have adopted it as a full-time lifestyle, overlanding is all about relying on your preparation, vehicle, and as you immerse in new cultures, connect with nature, and explore destinations off the beaten path.
