About Savannah Overland

Savannah Overland Expeditions Ltd is owned and operated by Gary Baker.

Gary was born in Africa and went to school in Zimbabwe and South Africa before emigrating to Australia.  He is a fully qualified ‘A’ Grade mechanic / diesel fitter and worked in the mining industry for almost 10 years. Maintaining the overland safari truck will be no problem – it’s all in a day’s work!

He moved to London in 2002 for a change of lifestyle and to travel more. Since being in the UK, he had the opportunity to work in the overlanding industry in Africa, South America and the Middle East. Each continent is amazing in its own right but Africa holds a special place in his heart.

Any spare time he gets, he likes to spend it travelling independently and has now been to over 94 countries on all continents and is amply experienced at travelling on a budget.

He decided to start his own Savannah Overland expeditions company because he believes he can offer a unique African adventure to anyone who has an adventurous spirit. Gary has gained a lot of experience throughout his own travels and understands what it is passengers are looking for when they embark on the journey of a life time.

Gary would like the opportunity to help you experience all Africa has to offer.
