Schools & Youth Groups

If you are looking to arrange a unique adventure in Africa for a youth group, school/college party, sports team, corporate event or even just a large group of family and friends then we have a fantastic option for Southern/Eastern Africa..

We can arrange for the private hire of an overland truck that can hold up to 24 people and you can choose the places to visit! If there are more than 24 people, don’t worry we can get you additional trucks! The trucks we use are some of the best available across Africa and travelling in these large vehicles allows you and your group to enjoy the experience all together instead of splitting into different 4×4 vehicles. It is also a lots cheaper than hiring multiple vehicles.

The benefit of travelling by overland truck is that the high seating position in the vehicles means you have unobstructed 360 degree views as you travel. You also have the ability to move around the truck during the day, and can access your luggage at any point as it is with you in the truck. There are also fridges and cool boxes inside to keep food and drinks chilled as your travel through beautiful Africa.

You can use these trucks purely for travel purposes to different accommodation across the region, or if you prefer these trucks can be used (and are designed as) full-purpose camping vehicles. The trucks come with large amounts of storage space for tents, water tanks, food preparation areas, cooking equipment, tables and chairs. There will be a well-trained staff member on hand throughout the tour to assist you with the camping and to provide and advice and guidance throughout the trip.

Facilities provided when hiring the trucks are as follows:

  • Driver
  • Fuel, truck maintenance, permits and road-tolls for the truck
  • Camping equipment (tents, mattresses, chairs, tables)
  • Cooking Equipment (pots, pans, jerry cans, crockery, 120l fridge, cool boxes)
  • 20 Charge Points on the truck for cameras, phones etc


Any length of hire is possible whether a few days or a few weeks…

Both directors at African Star Tours have travelled across Africa in this style of vehicle and can confirm it is a hugely enjoyable experience not to be missed. So if this sounds like something of interest then just drop us a message and we can help you decide on the perfect route and places to stay each evening. You just need to let us know what you want to see and experience and we will get back to you with a detailed breakdown, including costs.

"The entire family has had the best safari experience imaginable. The hotels were fantastic and our driver was outstanding throughout and everything was seamless. We saw many animals including a giraffe drinking from our lodge swimming pool which was unique in itself! As you said it was a stunning place with such lovely people. I will be sure to recommend your business and will be in touch should another trip be on the cards."
