In 2014, a few well-traveled and experienced gents had the idea of getting the best expedition team in the world together and offering training and expeditions. 7P International was formed. They provide world-class instruction with ex-military and globally experienced instructors in all types of terrain. Their training covers technical driving and recovery, as well as the non-technical elements of overland travel from logistics to navigation. In addition to instructing at Overland Expo, they offer boutique, guided trips to some of the most challenging and interesting destinations in the world including the Central American jungle and the deserts of Africa staying at a combination of remote camps and luxury lodges.
