To travel is to take a journey into yourself.

And with Off Road Adventure Safaris you benefit from over 30 years experience providing personalised small group tours across Australia. 

We specialise in private charter / soft adventure touring with customised itineraries. Our charter trips are tailored to meet the specific needs or special interests you may have and our tours encompass all the major sites – as well as some amazing hidden treasures.

Our nationally qualified Tour Guides have extensive touring and driving experience and are committed to providing you with more than just a tour, our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience.

With Off Road Adventure Safaris you have a maximum client / guide ratio of 12:1. You will travel in a safe, modern, air-conditioned 4WD vehicle. For our camping tours our vehicles will be towing a safari trailer equipped with all the creature comforts (in our world camping is spelt ‘ luxury’) whether utilising the facilities of designated sites or ‘roughing it’ in the bush.

Off Road Adventure Safaris is also able to provide basecamp logistics for Television and Film Crews, Researchers and Scientists in the field.

What our guests say

Mark's knowledge and understanding of the country, the people, the flora and fauna was outstanding, and his knowledge of hidden gems off the beaten track added to our overall enjoyment. To say nothing of his capacity to anticipate all our needs and desires! The accommodation and meals were fantastic.

“Mark's experience and expertise, as well as his knowledge of the Cape, the people, flora and fauna made you feel you were in good hands."

“Would recommend Mark and Off Road Adventure Safaris for whatever trip you have in mind."

“This was one of the best tours I and my wife have been on. 12 days from Cairns to Cape York visiting a wonderful part of Australia with a terrific guide in Mark."

“Mark did a great job of timing our visits so that we basically had all of our stops to ourselves and avoided the masses which made the trip feel that little bit special; like you had paradise to yourself."

“Mark made it clear that no effort was too much, nor no unconventional approach to the tour too difficult. He provided a dedicated, passionate approach to the traditional tour guide."
