Websites for lifts - overland travel expeditions


I am looking for websites where one can search for lift on overland expeditions like driving down through Africa or South America. I am not looking for tour companies but for private people/charities driving down through Africa looking for people to share petrol and costs with....it could be for an expeditions for charity, for making a documentary film or just people looking for adventure.

Thanks for your help

Sorry, but I cannot help. No TripAdvisor forum would work as it's against the posting guidelines for all forums. Try googling, or Lonely Planet's Thorntree forum, of Craiglist.

I'd say it would be extremely unlikely that any officially recognised charity would get involved with offering lifts as well, even if you pay your own costs.

Good luck,
