Waypoint Tours have the experience, qualifications & equipment
Only Waypoint Tours have a dependable track record providing consistently high quality, unique fully catered 4X4 self-drive adventures to interesting African and European destinations. We are the only 4X4 tour operator with the specialised equipment, qualifications and experience to serve our clients gourmet food daily.
We work very hard to bring you the best 4X4 experience available, and our quest for continuous improvement is recognised by both our new and returning clients alike.
Focussing on customer care, and consistently delivering top quality products and services, have always been the priorities of our business. We take pride in every gourmet meal we serve, on each and every unique overlanding adventure we run.
Our groups are small and personable, ensuring you get the best quality experience.
Over the past three years, there have been repeat clients on every one of our tours.
Wiltshire weekends - the ideal opportunity to experience our unique catered service.
Our European tours are particularly popular with families and great fun for the kids. For those more adventurous, our Morocco expeditions include three different routes.
And also on the itinerary is our fully catered Botswana & Namibia 4X4 fly drive safari.
What types of people come on our trips? Various ages, genders, professions and nationalities. All with something in common: outdoor enthusiasts passionate about exploring nature with their 4X4, and enjoying lots of good food at the end of each day.
Are you a beginner and concerned your ability may restrict you or hinder progress?
Not to worry, we regularly have first timers along, and our service includes in-situ coaching and training for those who want it. We always stop at the more technical sections to spot and guide the group through, avoiding the risk of vehicle damage.
By the end of our trips, clients are well practised in off-road driving and recoveries.
Must your vehicle be equipped with a winch, bullbar, bash-plates, snorkel, and all those other expensive accessories? No, it just needs to be in good mechanical order. (Tampering with original factory systems results in reduced dependability.)
Why subject yourself to tins and packets when you could be feasting with Waypoint.
Cost? Do the sums, you will find that joining us is not much more than going alone.
If you value and appreciate quality, trust Waypoint Tours to fulfill your requirements!

Waypoint Tours fully catered 4X4 overland expeditions in Africa
We get up after sunrise, pack away our tents and check the vehicles, before enjoying a breakfast of bacon & eggs, sausages & beans, milk & cereals, pastries & muffins, or whatever else is on our menu that day, which is always followed by freshly brewed filter coffee or tea. We leave camp around 9am and head out to the tracks, driving at a comfortable pace which suits everyone in the group. There is no need to rush, you are not on a rally-raid, though in Africa expect one or two long days behind the wheel.
The emphasis of our trips is on exploring, so we continuously plot new routes and we never back-track, preferring to overcome the challenges which nature presents.
Consequently we experience the most diverse off-road driving conditions, through varying terrain, where some road-building and vehicle recoveries will be required.
Waypoint Tours are well known for avoiding the over-touristed hotspots frequented by others. We concentrate our activities in the more remote, unspoiled and seldom visited areas. You will not encounter any mass-tourism hordes on a Waypoint Tour.
It's not all about driving though, we like to spend plenty of time out of the cars, visiting places of interest, meandering around the villages, and generally exploring the local culture as much as the environment. Markets provide a good insight to everyday life.
Midday sees us parked up in a pleasant setting, where the kids can play safely and adults take a break in the shade, while we prepare the lunches. Our four fridges are always well stocked with cheese & tomatoes, coronation chicken, tuna & sweetcorn, cold meats etc all of which go nicely with the local bakeries' fresh breads. Whenever available, we buy delicious fresh fruit and salads, for refreshment against the heat.
We usually finish the day's driving around 5pm and depending on location, we either stay at a campsite (often with swimming pool) or make a bivouac in the beauty of the wilderness. We offer a combination of wild camping and commercial campsites on all of our trips. It is often possible to upgrade to a room should you not wish to camp.
While you put up your tent and do your vehicle checks, we will be firing up the BBQ or heating up the tagine, for the evening meal. Whether we are at a campsite near town or a bivouac in the middle of nowhere, you will be served a hearty gourmet feast and often followed by a tasty desert. Ice cream in the Sahara? Yes, with chocolate sauce!
Our evenings are spent gathered around the fire, marvelling at spectacular shooting stars and discussing the heroics of the day. Or mercilessly having a chuckle at the next person's expense. It's usually a bit of both, and lasting friendships are forged.
