My experience with Overland Africa on my recent safari was off the charts exceptional.

Posted on October 29th, 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!

We took the Southern Sun overland camping trip (from Vic Falls to Cape Town).

Posted on October 29th, 2019 by Overland Africa

We took the Southern Sun overland camping trip (from Vic Falls to Cape Town) in Oct 2016 with our kids and had a great time! Gelle did an amazing job helping us book the trip and answered all our questions in a timely manner. She is very professional, pleasant and always ready to assist. She had indeed helped us 13 years ago when we booked a similar trip. Our Kenyan crew were wonderful. River rafting in Vic Falls was great. Kids favorite was the Okavango Delta! Saw lots of animals at Chobe and Etosha. Climbing the sand dune in Sossusvlei was an amazing experience. Will definitely be contacting them for a future trip.” – Janti

How to Choose the Perfect African Overlanding Tour Just for You!

Posted on October 29th, 2019 by Overland Africa

Overland Camping Tours – Large Groups

If you consider yourself the outdoors camping type, and don’t mind sharing your experience with other like-minded travellers from all around the world, then this option could be perfect for you. You’ll be provided with a dome tent and rollout mattress for accommodation and will participate in helping your crew around camp. This is the most budget-friendly option and is great for backpackers and adventure travellers who don’t mind a bit of elbow grease. Why not consider something like our South East Adventure Overland Tour?

 

Overland Fully-Serviced Tours – Small Groups.

If you find that you don’t mind spending a little bit more in order to secure a tour with a smaller group of people, are 40 or older, and want a few conveniences while still camping under the stars, then this type of overlanding tour might be the one for you. The crew will take care of setting up your tent and preparing all of your meals. These types of tours are usually grouped in 7 day experiences. For example, have a look at our Wildside Tanzania tour.

 

Overland 3 – 4-Star Accommodated Tours.

If you’re actually more of an adventure traveller who prefers the comfort of 3 – 4-star accommodation, with en-suite bathrooms and all of the perks, then this type of tour is a great fit. You’ll still get to enjoy the social aspect of overlanding with your group while spending your evenings in luxurious surroundings. These types of tours are usually grouped in 8 day + 14-day experiences. Consider our 10 Day Kenya & Tanzania Adventure as an example of what to expect.

We had a most excellent adventure! Thank you! We saw every animal on the Big Seven listand so much more! We soared in the hot air balloon over the Serengeti and had a fabulous champagne breakfast. The Maasai tour was so interesting and the people were so welcoming. Our guide went out of his way to make my birthday a real celebration. Thank you again for planning such a fabulous 32 days that we’ll never forget!

Overland Africa responded very quickly!

Posted on October 29th, 2019 by Overland Africa

I contacted them pretty last minute for a trip (hopefully) to Mozambique. Overland Africa responded very quickly and while it was not possible to make it to Mozambique they were very receptive to what I wanted to do and booked a wonderful trip to Tanzania for me instead. The team was amazing and kept in touch with me the entire time. I had a wonderful first safari in Tanzania with an incredibly knowledgeable safari guide. The resort in Zanzibar was perfect as well…great to relax a bit after being on safari. Overall everything was perfect and I will definitely be contacting OVERLAND AFRICA again for future trips to Africa!
