Planning your next overland expedition? Log on to Google.com and type ‘overland trips’. What do you get? A screen full of African and European overland travel companies! There is no doubt that Africa, Europe and South America are all great overland destinations. They have a lot of both offbeat and popular destinations and some great companies to travel with. Now that you have explored Africa, South America and Europe as overland destinations, have you thought about India? It is much like a continent in itself. From the game rich national parks like Africa, the hot steaming rainforests like South America and the old colonial charm reminding you of Europe, India offers a taste of everything. There is the Himalayas with its endless peaks and mountains which are much more beautiful, picturesque and much more difficult to conquer than the Kilimanjaro, the Andes or the Swiss Alps. There are the Deserts of Rajasthan and Gujarat which is much more colourful than the Sahara and with a biodiversity so rich that it supports the lions, wolves, wild asses, leopards, numerous tribes and a lot more. The broad leaved forest of Central India looks very similar to the European forests but is much richer with game. On addition to all this, there is the celebrated Indian culture, different languages, mouth watering cuisines, a multitude of festivals which offer an overland traveler a complete platter.
Now for the first time in India, we have taken the initiative of exploring the possible overland circuits and starting the first India based overland company named Prayaan India Overland. There are destinations which have never before explored, tribes that have never been met before and the roads less travelled which are all awaiting you. Come and join us on one of our expeditions as we explore and discover more of India.
