Watch a bull Elephant charge in the Okavango Delta or a lion cub play in the Masai Mara. Raft the rapids of the Zambezi or ski the sand dunes of Namibia. Tucan Travel shares your exploratory spirit, passion for adventure and desire for truly authentic and unique experiences - and is determined to give you the adventure of a lifetime.

Tucan Travel has 25 years' experience leading travellers to some of the most exciting and inspiring destinations in the world.

In Africa, Tucan Travel's overland expeditions use purpose-built Mercedes Benz expedition vehicles for those wishing to travel on a group itinerary. Those wanting a more independent experience can choose from lodge-based safari packages and city stays.

If your idea of the perfect overland adventure involves colourful landscapes, incredible wildlife encounters and meeting fascinating people, then Africa is your ideal destination. You won't have to look hard to find zebras, wildebeest and giraffes spilling across the vast grasslands of the Africa's diverse national parks.

Witness nature in all her savage glory as predators stalk their prey. See red-robed Maasai warriors herding their precious cattle across the plains. Watch incredible flocks of flamingos crowding the shores of Lake Nakuru and feel the spray of the mighty Victoria Falls on your face. Trek through lush rainforest to meet a family of mountain gorillas in Rwanda's Virunga Mountains. The cities of Africa have a lot to offer culture lovers, including cosmopolitan Cape Town with its amazing markets, wonderful museums and stunning sea views.

In East and Southern Africa, Tucan Travel's Overland Expeditions feature a mix of hotels and camping so that you can experience the outdoor element of this great continent. Travel on Tucan's own Mercedes Benz vehicles, view game from Tucan's trucks and smaller 4WDs and mini-vans. Touring in South Africa is also offered using Tucan's own vehicles and staying in hotels only.

Tucan Travel shares your exploratory spirit, passion for adventure and desire for truly authentic and unique experiences. Tucan's travellers Africa are encouraged to get out there and explore for themselves. Most travellers don't enjoy being constricted by tours that push you into shops or tell you what you have to see, so you will see the highlights as a group, do an orientation tour and have access to plenty of advice. You can do as much or as little with the group as you like and your Tour Leader will always be there to give you hand, meet up with the group for dinner and organise any excursions that are best visited as a group.
