What is overlanding?

Overlanding or overlanding is self-sufficient travel with an (overlander) vehicle where the journey itself is the goal. To put it simply, overlanding is about exploration. Whether you travel by truck, 4x4 or motorcycle, it's about driving the roads less traveled and immersing yourself in the environment and culture. Of course there will be plenty of campsites – the only difference is that there are sometimes off-road obstacles to overcome and navigate. That is, “drive”. And, just like life, you will probably go through some kind of process of reassessing life's priorities.

What is the difference between off-roading and overlanding?

While off-road driving and its extreme variants are more focused on the technical aspects of driving/traveling over challenging varied terrain, the overland experience is more focused on the journey and exploration where off-road driving is only a small part.

Do you need a 4×4 for overlanding

You don't need 4wd for overlanding. Most people don't use their 4×4 99% of the time. Invest in quality All Terrain tires, recovery equipment and safety equipment.
