“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.
