Meet the team behind World Overlanders

World Overlanders is owned and operated by Pete & Kirsten Deverson. From 2008 – 2016 we were the owners and operators of Odyssey Overland, a UK-based company which operated group overland tours on three continents, specialising in running some of the biggest overland trips in the world including Istanbul to Singapore (6 months), Cape Town to Cairo (5 months) and a loop around South America (7 months).

We took a break from the travel industry when our kids arrived, but the lure of overland travel proved to be too much for us and during the lockdowns of 2020, we built ourselves a Family Overland Truck which we used to explore southern Africa with our kids.

Fast forward a couple more years and we have started World Overlanders to give us the opportunity to indulge our passion for epic road trips and all things overland travel. Pete can’t wait to get back on the road and do what he loves best – guiding groups and sharing the unique sights, sounds, tastes and experiences that he knows so well. And Kirsten is looking forward to getting to know all our new clients before, during and after their journeys, and helping more people discover the joys of overland travel.
