Our expeditions are tailored to your desires. On the expedition pages you find modular routes and areas that we travel. You can select from these modules and create your ideal safari, that we can hone to meet your personal wishes in terms of the exact routes, accommodations and length of time.

Expeditions start on Alkmaar Farm close to Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, South Africa. This is the base of the Bushlife operations in South Africa. All expeditions are run from here by Johann Sippel and his wife Wanda. Johann was Chief Marshal of the Camel Experience in the nineties, created the LandRover Driving Experience for Land Rover South Africa and was the host of a TV show on off roading and overlanding.

Expedition base - Alkmaar 4x4 training 2 days

This is a two day compulsory start of every expedition. On occasion we may do this part on a location closer to the start of the expedtion. You stay in the guesthouse on the farm and go through a professional 4x4 training. We cover both the theoretical side as well as the practical side on the obstacle course on the farm. Here you will practice the basic of offroading and the skills you will need for your particular expedition. The practical training will take most of the second day. Further you will have some time to yourself and you will meet your guide for the expedition.
