Oasis Overland adventure travel company was founded in 1997 by Chris Wrede and Steve Crowhurst. Their extensive knowledge of Africa, the Middle East and South America had been gained by leading tours for larger established companies, as well as their own independent travelling adventures. By 1997 Steve had driven several Trans Africa expeditions and had designed and built a number of overland expedition vehicles. Chris had cycled across Africa and South America followed by work in the travel industry which involved sales, operations and tour leading. They are based in rural Somerset on an old WWII airfield and are one of the few UK based overland companies to maintain their own UK workshop where vehicles are adapted and built for overland use and where crews and trainees receive hands on training.
