So if you want to travel in South America, are open to experiencing some unchartered territory, and want to travel with an organised tour, then this could be the ideal trip for you.
Your accommodation includes camping in remote areas, sleeping in hammocks, basic riverboats on the Amazon to occasional local pousadas (guest houses) and hostels in cities.

The advantages of travelling with an Oasis Overland tour is that you don't have to worry about booking transport or accommodation. All your travelling is taken care of in the Oasis Expedition Truck, and all your accommodation is included (approx 50% camping & 50% simple hotels or hostels). You won't have to buy cooking and camping equipment as that is provided. About 50% of the food will be provided by Oasis Overland and is prepared by the group, and the other 50% you pay for yourself, giving you the chance to try out local cafes, restaurants and food stalls. You will also have the experience of 2 Oasis Crew to call on, who will be with you on the whole journey to guide and support you.
