Who hasn’t dreamed of running away to Africa? Lions stalking wildebeest, hippos chillin’ in waterholes – it’s a wild, wild world out there. Thing is, for a lot of young people, Africa can seem just that bit too expensive or far away. Not with Geckos.

It’s been a while since our last safari, but we’re back, baby – back with new adventures through Botswana, South Africa, Tanzania and more. Ride with us and you’ll get the value of great overland trucks, a stellar local leader, driver and cook, and the epic, unforgettable experience of camping in the African wild with people your own age (and maybe a few curious zebras). And to sweeten the deal even more, we’re offering 15% OFF all Africa tours if you book before 15th December.  Terms & conditions
