Overland Adventure Trucks Central Asia

The majority of our vehicles are Scania 93 series 4x2 trucks of between 220 and 280 horsepower. They are custom built trucks made to handle and deal with the terrain and climates we encounter along the way on our trips. Our Central Asia vehicles return to the UK each winter to be serviced in our workshop.

In Central Asia our trucks have glass windows which slide open due to the varied temperatures we experience. Trucks seat between 20 and 24 travellers.

The diagram below provides a general idea of the layout of an Oasis Overland Adventure vehicle in Central Asia.
