Martin was born and raised on the north coast of Zululand and learned to drive on the remote beaches at the age of 10 in a VW Beetle “beach buggy”, made by his father from electricians conduit and sheet metal. Ever since, 4×4 overlanding has been a way of life and he has adventured extensively across Southern Africa’s safari territory. Having been the founding partner of Avis Safari with a fleet of 110 premium safari vehicles under exclusive license from Avis global, Martin established Overland360 six years ago with business partner Stephen Becker to offer a specialised guided safari tour service.
Gill Steer is an accomplished African overlander, camping and traversing the length and breadth of southern Africa. There are not many places she hasn’t travelled to or through and after a successful 25-year career in publishing and photography Gill is now an important member of the Overland360 team.
Fredie was born in France and moved to Cape Town with her parents many years ago. There she discovered, and fell in love with, the natural wonder of the ocean; a love for wild, open spaces which was kindled anew 10 years ago, when she first set eyes on the vast and wild African bushveld. Africa has a way of seducing one like that. She has since travelled extensively through sub-Saharan Africa, exploring, learning and intensifying her relationship with Mama Africa. Fredie has spent the past 17 years in the tourism and hospitality industry making holiday dreams come true. From first contact to destination planning, and securing the right transport and accommodation for her guests, Fredie is passionate about delivering first-class, friendly service.
