Sorry for not being in touch sooner regarding the trip but I just wanted to let you know that we had the most amazing experience. I appreciate everything that you did for us to make this a reality.

“OMG Leisha what an amazing trip!

Posted on October 29th, 2019 by Overland Africa

I loved every second of it. Yes, there were some rough and ready bits but what an experience.I have done safaris before so didn’t expect much new but I saw so many different species and behaviours.

 

The landscape was beautiful, the people so friendly and the wildlife epic! We trekked and saw gorillas, chimps, rhinos, shoebills, elephants, hippos, warthogs, antelopes and birds, as well as the tree-climbing lions. We even saw a gorilla still chewing on its new-born baby’s umbilical cord. How lucky were we! Such close encounters throughout.

 

The truck and guide were amazing. Hats off to Takalani for keeping such a mixed group’s spirits so high throughout. We bonded so well and made contacts for life. I can’t put into words how much I’ve enjoyed this trip and can’t recommend it more highly. I’ll never forget it and I’d love to do another tour!”

3 Reasons To Overland Africa Instead of Flying from Country to Country

 

1. The Journey

 

As a continent, Africa IS “the journey”. There are few other places in the world where life, people, and commerce revolve so specifically around the road as it does in Africa. From produce stalls to food markets, butcheries and pubs, to livestock and even a round of pool or some dancing over a beer, there’s always something happening on or near the road here.

 

2. The Wildlife

 

Have you ever dreamed of experiencing mountain gorillas in the rainforests of North Africa? How about searching for the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard) in the Masai Mara? Then don’t rush through it all with quick drop-ins!

 

3. The Landscapes

 

You’ll also find yourself experiencing a range of vehicles from well-appointed safari trucks to minibuses and even sturdy 4x4s, all while tackling some of the most adventurous landscapes in the world.

The trip over all was phenomenal

Posted on October 28th, 2019 by Overland Africa

“I don’t usually take the time to write a travel review unless my experience was extremely bad or extremely good.  In this case my experience with Overland Africa on my recent safari was off the charts exceptional.

An African safari was always on my bucket list, but could never pull the trigger until I spoke with Leisha de Villiers from Overlandafrica.  Leisha painted a very realistic picture of what I could expect on my travels.  She explained thoroughly every facet of their excursion.  She shared the animals I would expect to see and she was dead on, she shared tidbits, such as there would be a stop for souvenirs and how much the end of the day beer would cost  She went into great detail on what to expect from our guide and what the accommodations where like.  She also covered things I would never have thought about such as visa fees and immunizations.  Leisha did an excellent job of setting expectations.  When I go back for another visit I will definitely use Leisha again, and I would send my friends and family to her, when their ready for their safari.

The trip over all was phenomenal, a once (hopefully more) in life time experience. It way way exceeded my expectations.  The accommodations, even out in the wild were exceptional, actually better than I expected and better than some hotels I stay at here in the states.  The only thing I would change is next time I will have Leisha book the travel also.  The airlines in Africa were not the easiest to deal with, but I learned, next time Leisha will handle everything.  Best wishes on your trip and feel free to contact me with any questions

Cheers!

Leo Wolanin”
