Here at Overlando we specialise in self-driving overland adventures. Our aim is to share our passion for road trips through new territories by providing you with everything you could ever need in our fully equipped overlanding vehicles.
We’re located in Tbilisi, Georgia, on the divide between the East and the West. Tucked away from the world in the heart of the Caucasus mountains, Georgia is the ultimate road-trip destination. Despite its small size, Georgia has more than its fair share to offer. With landscapes ranging from soaring mountains to lush green valleys, temperate rainforests to year-round snows and glaciers, it inspires awe in all who visit. No matter what you’re looking for, there’s something here for everyone. If outdoor activities are your thing, then there’s plenty for you too, such as hiking, rock climbing, horse riding, or even paragliding! If you’re just looking to escape and relax, then head on out to one of Georgia’s famous wine regions, or have yourself a beach holiday along the Black Sea coast.
No matter what you choose, all our 4×4 vehicles are fully equipped and maintained to get you there safely and in comfort. Currently we offer custom-converted UAZ Buhankas and fully equipped 4×4 Lada Niva camping cars for rent, but we will be increasing our range in the future to allow for even more types of adventures.

Overlando was founded by travel enthusiasts and experienced overlanders, so we understand fully that sometimes you want to explore even further. Contact us if there’s something that you’re interested in doing that we don’t list here on our website – We’re sure that we can work something out!
“Overlanding is self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, but not exclusively, it is accomplished with mechanised off-road capable transport (from bicycles to trucks) where the principal form of lodging is camping, often lasting for extended lengths of time (months to years) and spanning international boundaries.” – Wikipedia
What our guests say
We have enjoyed 2 trips in an Overlando Buhanka
We have enjoyed 2 trips in an Overlando Buhanka. It is the best way to see some of the off-the-beaten track parts of Georgia. And these are some of the best places to visit. Overlando are efficient, friendly and informative. The campers are great vehicles, well provisioned and well maintained. I could not rate them more highly.
Our journey in Georgia was one of the most memorable!
Our journey in Georgia was one of the most memorable! We loved everything about it. The Bukhanka, the beautiful nature, camping in ‘the wild’, the people, the wine, the food, the culture and the history. What a lovely country. We would recommend it to everyone! #bukhanka #overlando #georgië
Overlando, a true adventure
We had a beautiful trip with the Toyota Hillux, the car had everything we needed and was in really good condition. The owner, Joris was very helpfull while planning our trip; we always got a quick and elaborate answer to all our questions.
Travelling this way was an amazing experience, the car could go everywhere and with all the supplies on board (stove, gas, shower, water, electricity). We slept in beautiful nature and could go on many adventoures, thanks to the car. Would really advice this way of travelling with Overlando!
The Lada Niva was better equiped than expected and it found a little space in our hearts
We traveled with the Lada Niva for 2 weeks and tried to explore every aspect of Georgia, with succes. If I have one recommendation for Overlando, it would be to expand their number of rental cars. Because I will tell all my friends, colleagues, family… about them and they will come to Georgia after looking at the pictures. The communication was great, the Lada Niva was better equiped than expected and it found a little space in our hearts. We made it really difficult for us to look for an even nicer holiday next year.
We had a fantastic trip using Overlando’s lada Niva in Vashlovani NP.
The car was very efficient on every paths, and surprisingly comfy. It comes with all the needed camping gear.
The rooftop tent was easy to set up and really water resistant despite the storm we have experienced.
All in all we can only be positive with this rental company. The owners are very professional and extremely friendly.
We miss already this car and can’t wait to book it again.
We absolutely recommend them in case of a adventurous trip in the lands of Georgia
We ranted a Uaz Buhanka for 10 days. The van has a fascinating rough and wild look, but is equipped for every need if you have to stay for some days in some remote locations of Georgia. The roof tent allowed us to sleep comfortably (we were 3 adults). Georgia is a beautiful country and Georgian people are really friendly and hospitable.
Overlando’s team has proved itself very efficient and ready to respond to every question or need we had. Their advices were very helpful and perfect.
Thanks a lot!
Great experience – good service
We really enjoyed our 2 weeks holiday in Georgia with the uaz buhanka camper. With the uaz we were able to reach all places we wanted and service from the team was good!
We really got a taste for off road driving
Hi! We had such a great experience renting a Lada Niva from Overlando. Joris was very helpful and kind and the pick up and drop off of the car felt very trust based. Really appreciated it. It made our pick up easy and fast and the drop off very convenient for us.
The car is equipped with everything you could possibly need – reading material (LonelyPlanet + a book written by Georgians about Georgia), and the classic gear; a stove, table and chairs etc. + coffee and spices (which is a small – but lovely gesture).
The tent is easy to rise, the bed is very comfortable and the view changes from day to day. We really got a taste for off road driving and loved being able to set camp wherever we wanted and being close to the wind, weather and the call of hyenas.

Overlando provides probably the best way to explore the beautifully diverse landscape of Georgia.
Overlando provides probably the best way to explore the beautifully diverse landscape of Georgia. We rented the UAZ Buhanka for 17 days and did not regret it at any point of our journey. Even though the roads in Georgia and Armenia are not up to German standards, the Buhanka is the perfect car to deal with it and climb even the tallest mountains on the bumpiest roads.
The camping equipment contains everything you need and overall, a lot of thought and labour has been put into the interior accessories (dimmable LEDs!).
Joris answered every question we had during our trip immediately and the overall service provided by the Overlando Team is just excellent.
Would highly recommend, we already think about coming back to explore Armenia aswell
We rented a Buhanka van for ten days for a roadtrip around Georgia. The van took a day to get used to, as the design of the car itself is rather rudimentary and you have to expect a few querks… BUT, once we got a hang of it we really had fun driving through all kinds of mountain passes, offroad tracks, cow pastures and lonely meadows! It took us anywhere we wanted to go! The interior has everything you might need for your holiday in the nature and the companies customer service was really great! No question left unanswered. Would highly recommend, we already think about coming back to explore Armenia aswell
We rented the UAZ for 10 days and made an unforgettable trip. The contact with Overlando was very pleasant. During our trip we could always send a message if we had any questions. Would definitely recommend renting the car here!
Original review in Dutch
We hebben 10 dagen de UAZ gehuurd en hebben een onvergetelijke reis gemaakt. Het contact met Overlando was erg prettig. Tijdens onze reis konden we altijd een berichtje sturen als we vragen hadden. Zou het zeker aanraden om hier de auto te huren!
Overlando is echt een ontzettende aanarader. Het contact verliep erg prettig. Van te voren hadden we goed mail contact en konden we alle vragen m.b.t. mogelijke routes, maar ook m.b.t. huidige Covid-regels. In Georgië konden we via Whatsapp altijd vragen stellen die snel werden beantwoord.
Het is gaaf om in de UAZ rond te trekken. De wagen is van alle gemakken voorzien. Vooral de koelkast is een fijne bijkomstigheid, want na een dag hard rijden is er niks lekkerder dan een koud wijntje of biertje.
We totally recommend this service and for sure we will take it again next time we’re back in Georgia.
We rented a 4×4 Lada Niva with Overlando. The rooftop tent was perfect for exploring Georgia’s mountains. The car is compact but agile enough for the roads we faced. The car came extremely well equiped with table, chairs, stove, cutlery, plates, glasses and even a coffee mokka. The guys at Overlando were very attentive and quickly answered all our questions about the car and roads in Georgia. We totally recommend this service and for sure we will take it again next time we’re back in Georgia.
We had an amazing time!
We rented the Lada with a rooftent and what shall I say… We had an amazing time! The car was great, the rooftent was very comfortable and the guys at Overlando were very nice and professional! This is the best way to see Georgia off the beaten tracks.
Thanks Sasha, Shash and Joris!
We will come again!
Just the best! When can we do it again……
WE LOVED OVERLANDO!!!. The entire experience was just a delight from start to finish. The team were incredibly helpful the entire trip and the van was tremendous fun. Stylishly decked out, super comfy and we had everything we needed. It was honestly one of the best and most fun holidays we’ve ever been on.
Great job Overlando team!
Reliable and fun
We have been travelling from Tblisi to the impressive Kaukasus mountains. Our camper drove us everywhere without any trouble. And some of the roads are off-off roads!
The Buhanka was cosy and has everything you need. It was a great adventure and a nice way to explore Georgia.
The staff from Overlando were very helpfull before and during the trip.
It was a great trip!
together with my wife and 2 friends of mine, we rented 2 Buchanka at October 2021. I want to give a short feedback regarding our experience: First of all, we enjoyed our trip to Georgia with the Buchanka very much. Although Buchanka is not a common vehicle, that´s what we wanted to get to know. As Automotive engineers I think we were able to handle it! To provide Internet-Connectivity as standard equipment simplified travelling a lot – and it worked pretty well. I want to give just one proposal: Due to the fact, that 2nd fuel-tank should (could) not be used and dirt roads without fuel stations come upon many times, it would be calming to know a jerrycan inside the Buchanka (5 – 10 liters would be ok). Especially in Kaukasus, there is no buffer for unexpected situations (diversion, …). It was a great trip!

The highlight of our trip to Georgia!
The tour we made with the Lada was the highlight of our trip to Georgia! Everything was fixed very well for a very affordable price – the car was delivered to our hotel, and was picked up again as well. The rooftop tent was setup within seconds, and Overlando provided us with all necessary camping gear. 5 stars!
Awesome Niva and a rooftop tent!
Rented Niva Lada for a week to travel in Borjomi/Tabatskuri area and to Kakheti. Had an amazing experience. Niva is cool and comes with everything one might need for hicking. Sleeping in a tent that is installed on the roof of the car was an awesome thing and something I had never seen before. Customer service was also great! The staff was very well organized, responsible, and punctual. Overall 10/10!! Highly recommended!
Wonderful experience! If you love camping, roadtrips and a little adventure, you should definitely go Overlando:)
We had a fantastic 10 days driving around Georgia’s wild scenery. Outside Tbilisi the roads were very quiet and you could stop and sleep almost anywhere. Overlando were always available and quick to sort out any issues.
The van was very comfortable and well equipped. WiFi was included and seemed to work everywhere.
The car takes you everywhere!
We rented the Lada Niva for 21 days and enjoyed every moment! The car was fully equipped with great camping gear and the tent was popped up (and in) very quickly. The car takes you everywhere! The team of Overlando was really friendly and made renting a car a fun and trustworthy experience (compared to the bad experience I had with bigger companies across the globe). Highly recommend!

Best way to travel in Georgia
We rented the Lada Niva with roof tent for 2 weeks. In retrospect, I can’t imagine a better way to explore the country.
The very well maintained Lada took us reliably everywhere, was easy to drive and really grew on us during the 2 weeks. The roof tent was amazingly spacious, easy to handle and a super sleeping accommodation even in wind and rain. And for even more comfort, there are even camping chairs, a small table and a kitchen box. There is thought of everything, even oil, pepper, salt, soap and garbage bags are included. In the glove box there is a small handbook with the most important information and also the hotline we have been able to reach immediately in case of questions. Also in advance, the communication by e-mail was easy, fast and uncomplicated.
Thank you Overlando for this great package and an unforgettable time in Georgia. I can highly recommend it to anyone who wants to travel to Georgia and we will definitely come back soon to discover more of the country.

The trip with the overlando was awesome!
The trip with the overlando was awesome! Everything was perfect.
The communication with the crew from overlando was very easy. Such nice people!!!?
The bus is just awesome and imcludes everythi g you need for camping. We recommend minimum three nights, but a week would be amazing.
Thank you to the team! It was incredible!♥️?
We had a truly amazing experience!
Our family with 2 kids (aged 7 and 10) rented an UAZ with rooftop tent for 2 weeks this summer. We had a truly amazing experience! The car was well-equipped with proper high quality camping gear, the UAZ was technically in good condition and the team at Overlando was super friendly, helpful and efficient in their communication. We felt safe camping in Georgia, the local people are friendly and always helpful. As as soon as you are used to driving this kind of car, the driving on Georgian roads is comfortable. We hope to return one day !

Overlando provide with everything I was hoping for
I’m used to overlanding and adventure trips and Overlando provide with everything I was hopping for. The Buhanka is maybe not the best car in the world but it’s a great load of fun to drive and it will take you where you want. I really enjoyed it a lot! The work that Overlando did with the car is very fresh and functional. The Buhanka was my home for 22 days and every time I needed it, Overlando did not hesitate in giving the extra mile. They are young, efficient, and very much service oriented. I would definitely recommend Overlando and not hesitate to book again with them if I would plan another trip in this part of the world.

Best way to explore Georgia
We rented the lada niva and we absolutely loved it. We had no experience with wild camping or driving off road but the well equiped car and Overlando’s support made it really easy. It is a great way to explore Georgia. Highly recommended!
Driving with the Lada Niva through Georgia was an unforgettable experience. The owner Joris was super helpful and gave us a great introduction for the car and many helpful tips for the trip. Best thing about the Lada is that I can go nearly everywhere, so you can find super nice and remote camping spots. We were happy that the car had AC and the rooftent mattress was comfortable enough to spend two weeks in the car. Only thing we missed was a coolbox. We’ll definitely go again!
If you plan a trip to the remotest corners of the Caucasus, I would definitely recommend you to go with one of Overlando’s Nivas.
We rented a Niva this summer. The camping equipment included is everything you might need to stay out of civilization for a few days. The roof tent is easy to handle and super comfortable. The car comes with power steering and air condition. Other than with many rental companies in Georgia, offroading is not contractually excluded. If you plan a trip to the remotest corners of the Caucasus, I would definitely recommend you to go with one of Overlando’s Nivas. For a road trip, the Niva might not be the car to go with… But take him offroad and boy, you will be impressed!
Definetely a great experience!
We had the honour of driving one of the Lada Niva’s of Overlando for 10 days back in August. Driving around Georgia in the Lada was really fun and easy! With the travel tips of the Overlando crew we saw some amazing places and really enjoyed sleeping in the rooftop tent. Definetely a great experience!
If you love outdoor life and camping, it is definitely the best way to explore Georgia.
Awesome experience with Overlando!
Awesome experience with Overlando! We hired a brand-new roof tent for our 4WD road trip in Georgia. Good and clear communication, really thoughtful and he helped us with the set up of tent on the roof of the car. I would recommend Overlando if you’re looking for an epic trip in Georgia and the Caucasus! 🙂
I strongly recommend this company.
We hired a rooftent at Overlando to place on top of the 4x4WD car we rented elsewhere. Great service and clear communication. The tent was in perfect shape and really easy to set up and use. When their minivans are rented out (as is our case), a perfect alternative would be to rent a rooftent and the camping gear at Overlando, to place on top of a car rented elsewhere (discuss this with them to make sure it fits:)). I strongly recommend this company.
Excellent, well equipped and powerful vans
Excellent, well equipped and powerful vans, paired with great support from Joris, the owner of Overlando. If you’re looking for an experience of a lifetime exploring the beauty of Georgia in a 4×4 – look no further. We went with a UAZ Buhanka, and boy was it an experience – the charm of an Sovjet union technology vehicle, combined with a high attention and vision from Overlando, turning it into a proper campervan, with a fridge, a cooker, coking utensils, a comfortable bed, and more than enough storage space. Highly recommended, when we return to Georgia, we will def. rent an Overlando vehicle again. Thank you Joris and team.
