Children the world over possess a natural curiosity, thirst for adventure, care for nature and love of freedom. But as we grow up, somehow we start to loose it – from spending years in school/university to partying and social lives in our late teens and early 20’s, and then pursuing careers that leave most of us desk bound. We’re too busy now to stop and feel the pulse of nature, too educated to stare at the night sky in awe and wonder. If we have a question we google the answer. Smart devices and social media have us seeking another “fix” every few minutes like the addicts we are. We need to escape!
“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” – Henry David Thoreau
That feeling of freedom, a search for adventure and deep longing for a connection with nature. That’s what overlanding is all about to us. Join our growing company of like-minded individuals.
Festina lente – make haste slowly
It isn’t about tearing up remote tracks in excessively modified and overloaded 4WD’s seeing how fast you can get from point A to B.
It is about responsible travel in sensibly equipped vehicles with as light a load as possible to minimise damage to the environment, while taking the time to explore, discover and adventure – creating lifetime memories.
