The second edition of this popular guide has been condensed into a more compact 480-page paperback with all the practical detail updated and now featuring colour trip reports by overland adventurers from around the world.


Chris Scott and his band of 50 globetrotting contributors have put together the definitive manual for planning and undertaking a vehicle-dependent overlanding adventure across the wilds of Africa, Asia and Latin America.

  • Planning and preparation
  • When to go, costs, documentation and sponsorship
  •  Vehicle choice and preparation.  Covers everything from adapting a cheap car to equipping a campervan or 4x4 for months on the road, or even building and outfitting your own cabin to mount on an all-terrain truck chassis.
  • Life on the road.  How to handle difficult borders, police trouble, haggle over a purchase, treat a dodgy stomach and cope with crazy driving conditions. Guidance on wild camping, navigation and mapping strategies, vehicle shipping, advice for solo women, travelling with children or with pets, vehicle repairs and trouble-shooting, and off-road driving techniques.
  • Continental route outlines.  Guidelines on both popular and obscure overland routes through Africa, Asia and Latin America - aka the 'Overland Zone'. Includes fuel prices, easiest border crossings and best seasons to travel, visa strategies, danger zones and regional highlights.

From Timbuktu to Kathmandu via Machu Picchu Overlanders’ Handbook covers everything you need to know in one comprehensive manual
