OunTravela is a resource and inspiration center allowing you to prepare your overland adventure abroad
What destination for your next overland travel?
OunTravela specializes in countries with little tourism, including large areas which only limit is your imagination! On our website, we strike to be concise and to give you practical and useful information for you to plan your Road-Trip.
You’ll find maps and route suggestions for a 12-days overland travel. The suggested routes are to be modelled once there according to local factors (weather, meetings, road conditions).
Each OunTravela article is built the same way:
- Why did we choose this country or region for the selected overland travel?
- Our itinerary on a schematic map and a satellite map (GPS tracker) with some explanations about the organization of our selected Road Trip.
- Our favorite ones: landscapes, treks, cultural events, monuments…
- Practical information specific to each country you should know before heading off (cost of living, visa, transportation…).
- Our budget (fully transparent).
Our Overlanding Tips?
We don’t claim to be Mike Horn or a group of Paris-Dakar experts! However, our many 4x4-and-motorcycle travelling experiences have allowed us to learn from our mistakes, both in terms of driving in rough surfaces (desert, mountain, etc.) and in terms of the basic mechanical problems that we have learned to fix by ourselves.
We are thus sharing in our “Practical sheet” section several information that will be very useful to you: choice of the vehicle, mechanics, driving on sand, etc. Each sheet is summarized and available in PDF format. Download definitely before going on an overland adventure!
Improvise & get adapted
Unlike the classic Road-Trip, the OunTravela trip is done without a specific itinerary, according to the landscapes and the meetings. We believe it is way more than an adventure. It’s a philosophy (see the Philosophy of the tiny path article).
Improvisation and adaptation are the key words of this philosophy. So, don’t you forget to let your imagination run and get adapted to the environment, culture and people around you.
Warning: travelling on vehicles, such as 4x4s and motorcycles can seriously damage the environment, especially in off-road. We rely on you to be respectful.
