We are Alice and Chiara, two young Italian entrepreneurs that want to help you hold the world in your hands through meaningful eco-travel experiences.
Before becoming business partners, we have been good friends for years and share a passion for travels that are enriched with volunteering and helping the community.
The idea to create Overland Travels was sparked at a young age as we dreamt of traveling the world to discover new places and cultures. After living in Bali, Kenya and India, we always knew that our close experience with the locals was far too special to keep for ourselves. We wanted to provide the opportunity to other passionate travelers to expand their minds and their souls in a way that no normal vacation could ever do.
We launched our first Kenya Tour in 2016, then expanded the collection of handpicked experiences to other extraordinary destinations, to introduce you to locals and make a lasting impact.
