Chantal & Friends – Cape Town to Windhoek

Posted on June 7th, 2019 by overlandafrica

To Leisha,
My travels through Namibia this past May was an extraordinary discovery!
You had given us an itinerary and list of activities and we were not disappointed. The tour was extremely well organized. We travelled in a bus/truck hybrid, which was perfect for the dusty and bumpy Namibian roads. We were accompanied by 3 staff: one in charge of the food (Stanley: great chef), one of transportation (Alington: a fabulous chauffeur) and one to guide us and explain the wonders we were seeing, Norman: what an amazing and knowledgeable guide! All three were pleasant, kind, professional and fun. We felt well taken care of throughout our trip.
The complete itinerary was very well set-up. We hit all the top destinations we wished to see, the travel was well paced, with regular stops in places that were safe and clean. We all had the opportunity to see and experience things as we wanted. Some like to take many pictures, others prefer long walks, etc. There was space and accommodation for all which contributed to excellent spirit and vibe.
The accommodations were as announced, well appointed, clean and spacious. Some were more striking than others (usually because of there setting) and most – but not all – had wifi. I’ll never forget drinking a cup of tea while listening to the mountain zebras running, spending a quite time in front of the watering hole looking at elephants and giraffes going about their day or enjoying a sundowner in front of the magnificent African sky.
Namibia was an amazing discovery, the desert, the canyons, the flora and fauna, Etosha, the sand dunes: WOW! I had never seen an oryx before, what a beautiful animal!
My most memorable moment was waking up at dawn to drive to Dune 45, climbing the spectacular dune as the sun rose and returning at the bottom to be welcomed with a warm breakfast prepared for us at the foot of the dunes. Amazing.
Thank you for organizing our trip and being so easy, clear, attentionate and accommodating and for making it such a memorable experience. I will not hesitate to recommend this trip to friends and family.

Nadia Coeur Benouddane – Cape Town to Vic Falls

Posted on May 7th, 2019 by overlandafrica

Hi Leisha! I have been fortunate to travel overland this March 2019, the trip started in Cape Town and ended in Victoria Falls.
The planing of my trip with Overland Africa has been professional, Leisha was my contact travel expert, she has been amazing communicating all informations needed and always answered all my questions very quickly. The whole voyage has been a lifetime experience, the landscapes never stopped surprising us, the wildlife has been entertaining, the sites we stayed at or camped at were great with all facilities needed, Our Guide Anthony was knowledgeable, kind and prepared for us the best food and served it with a story of it origin.
I am very happy with my Overland trip in Africa and would definitely recommend the overland truck travelling for both budget travellers, solo travellers and also anyone that look for something more than the classic. I think it is one of the best ways to experience Africa, it is safe and social way of travelling, saves time and gives you the opportunity to just enjoy what every country in Africa has to offer instead of using much of your time planing and stressing with all the questions that could pass by your head.

Have a good week and thank you again for great service

Best Regards

Leisha and the overland Africa team were extremely helpful in arranging the perfect Safari adventure for my daughter and I. We planned it at the very last minute, and yet she was able to find us the ideal trip on the ideal dates, and it could not have worked out better! Leisha and team were with us every step of the way, including helping us coordinate with the airline after they delayed the arrival of our baggage. They were recommended to us highly by a friend, and I am so glad we put our trust and our trip in their hands. I want to thank them for an adventure and memory that will last a lifetime!

Hi Leisha,

yes we had an amazing adventure!

Okavango Delta, Chobe and the Falls were all just fabulous. We would definately have enjoyed longer time in the Delta and Chobe. The crew on the truck were fantastic – friendly, informative and great food – couldn’t fault them at all. We would certainly consider future  tours through other parts of Africa!

Thank you,

Georgia Cavallari – 20 days Vic Falls to Cape Town Accommodated – March 2019

Posted on April 2nd, 2019 by overlandafrica

Hello Leisha!

It’s really sad that the tour is over, because I was having such a great time and loved it all from to first to the last second!

And by the way, the experience for me started even before Victoria Falls. It started with all the booking process and you were amazing! You were extremely helpful and efficient and during the trip I had in mind that I was thankful cause you took care of everything, so I had nothing to worry about.

The tour itself was perfect! I highly recommend it! There were many long road periods, sometimes entire days, which at the begining seemed weird, but at the end I was enjoying a lot! It’s nice spending time with the group (I was very lucky for having a great one) and the landscapes are breathtaken, so I enjoyed the time on the road.

The activities were also fantastic! I personally love this kind of trip where you’re in contact with nature, wildlife and different cultures, so it was all I could ask for. It’s very very hard to pick one highlight, but I can tell you a few moments that were special: the day at Chobe (with on land and cruise game), the day at Okavango delta, riding at the mokorro and walking around, the Namib desert (both in Swakopmund where I did quadbike/sandbording and at the dunes) and both days at Etosha. Basically everything! Haha

The crew was also very very nice! Kind, helpful, fun and had lots of knowledge to share with us.

Again, I had an amazing time! I’d love to come back again and I’ll reach you if I decide to, for sure! Thanks a lot for all the help! Have a wonderful day! ?

Hi Leisha

What can I say about your service? Well let’s see: it was always accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable and prompt – and, even though I couldn’t see you, always done with a smile.

If/when I’m going to do this all again, you’ll be the first person that I’d contact!

I had contacted several safari companies before finding Overland Africa. I’m so glad that I found them. Overland Africa was able to find the perfect safari experience for a solo traveler. Leisha was incredible at responding to all my many questions prior to the trip. There are so many details that go into planning a once in a lifetime experience. Overland Africa made it easy. I would recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Africa. Kirsten Clements November 2018

Greetings, 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.  Cheers!

Good morning Gelle,

Spot on!!! 😀 Kenya and Uganda have been amazing!!! Such a heartwarming and touching experience. We have encountered thousands and thousands of animals. I got shivers down my spine so many times. I have experience countless of special moments. The wildebeest migration was surreal and interacting with gorillas was out of this world. I may be back in Malta but my heart is still in Africa. The memories will surely last a lifetime and the feelings experienced will be felt for a very long time.

The feedback we are getting from the group is also positive. They have all been left in amazement 🙂 thanks to you and your excellent team. You had said that the safari operator have chosen their best 2 teams! They were so right Gelle!! Moses, Francis, Caroline, Solomon, Patrick and Charles are amazing!! Such a dynamic team, so passionate about what they do. Their skills are exceptional Gelle. They bonded very well with the group, they lead the group excellently, they were so so flexible, so responsive to our needs…at times even a step ahead. They took care of every little detail, were always available and the group simply loved them. I cannot pinpoint one single negative feedback about them. Truly exceptional Gelle!

I am still settling in and will send you detailed feedback about the logistics of the trip in a week. I would really like to thank you for making this possible!

And hey…Mozambique seems very interesting 😀 I have came across some of your photos. It seems it has been a great adventure for you. Make the most of your last few days.

Speak soon,

Kim ( August 2018 45 travellers Kenya and Uganda Overland private charter )

Hi Leisha!

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. The time at the end at Vic Falls was definitely enough and I am grateful that you were able to work to ensure we had the full day of activities to do once there. Our guides were wonderful and we felt safe and informed the entire time. Truly couldn’t have asked for a better time!

Thank you thank you thank you!! Will definitely be recommending Overland Africa to friends.


Thank you
