Years ago, I read amazing stories about people driving across the globe, from London to Cape Town or across an entire continent. Just looking at them, I used to wonder: how do they do it?
In those days, I would have had trouble just getting through the states of my country on my own.
I remember the first time I went on a serious road trip – it was a logistical nightmare.
Of course, I had fun, but just the thought of going through that experience in another country or continent… no thank you.
I mean, I want to do it, too, but invariably my mind comes up with hundreds of reasons why I shouldn’t. Or maybe couldn’t.
But that was before.
Now, things have changed drastically. For people like me, who love to drive and who dream of exploring the world on four wheels, a motoring expedition is the answer.
A motoring expedition is an organized journey that has a specific purpose. While a road trip can lead you to a wide variety of places, a true expedition usually takes you somewhere that’s not easily accessible or someplace where the terrain and natural habitat can pose serious challenges.
A real motoring expedition requires professional handling who comes with a loads of experience.
While a lot of planning does go into a road trip, it probably isn’t going to be at quite the same level as an expedition. These motoring expeditions aren’t a walk-in-the-park. They’re serious journeys with a specific purpose and require professional backup.
A New Way to go on a Holiday
An overland expedition gives you a chance to see more of the country you are visiting, rather than restricting it to fancy hotels or resorts, tourist traps, and souvenir shops. Booking a normal holiday includes a whole lot of logistics right from hotels, transfers, local tours and interesting activities. This takes a lot of the stress and uncertainty out of the planning portion of the vacation, especially when it’s in a country you’ve never been to before. That’s where we come in and easy out all these uncertainties and making it a wholesome life-changing experience.
Here are the reasons to consider a convoy driving vacation:
So, what are motoring expeditions really all about?
There’s only one real answer: it’s all about adventure.
Motoring expeditions are the best way to discover different landscapes and soak in the culture of a place without stressing yourself too much. The routes here are pre-tested and all the vehicles move in a convoy under the watchful eye of the expedition management team. Things like culinary experiences, the places to stay and the ideal set of activities in each destination are thoughtfully planned, which gives you the time to do what you really have come to do – just keep exploring without any hassle or worry about what’s going to happen next or the logistical nightmare.
Exploration and having new experiences are a major part of these worldwide expeditions. If you are looking for a new experience, try going on a motoring expedition holiday. You won’t regret it.
