Dear Leisha,

I will give you 5 stars for the rate.

My friends and I absolutely enjoy the vacation in Botswana which Leisha customize for us. It is an amazing trip and cover all we expect to find in Africa. We love the safari lodge, the activities and catering. I have no hesitation in recommending Overland Africa.

Abby Bruce – Uganda Wildlife Explorer – August 2019

Posted on August 21st, 2019 by Overland Africa

OMG Leisha what an amazing trip!

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 gorilla, chimp and rhino as well as seeing the tree climbing lions, shoebill, elephant, hippo, warthog, antelope, birds. We even saw a gorilla still chewing on its new born babies umbilical chord. How lucky were we! Such close encounters through out.

The truck and guide were amazing. Hats of to takalani for keeping such a mixed group so high through out. We bonded so well and made contacts for life.

I can’t put in words how much i enjoyed this trip and can’t recommend it more highly.ill never forget it and I’d love to do another tour.

Regards

Abby

Gina & Family Private Kenya & Tanzania Safari – August 2019

Posted on August 14th, 2019 by Overland Africa

HI Leisha,

We had a wonderful time.  Our guides were very knowledgeable, accommodating, informative and even funny and entertaining – particularly Ben, our guide in Kenya (Masai Mara. Our guide in Tanzania (Hasheem) was a naturalist so he gave us a lot of information, too, and could speak English well (like Ben in Kenya).  We received perfect customer service and our guides really made an effort, went out of our way so we can maximise our experience and see what we came to see. While we were not fortunate enough to see the river crossing, Ben, our guide, waited with us for hours to get the chance to see it – so we really appreciated that.

The itinerary was good and was quite flexible depending on our preference, i.e. time we should start, end, including pee stops and lunch time.  Our driver guides were so considerate and accommodating.

The accommodations were great.  The camp staff  (for all camps/lodges) were truly very hospitable, friendly and accommodating. Thank you in particular for the surprise birthday cake for Christina – as well as the Masai dance that came with it- that really made her happy. Appreciate all your assistance and patience to answer our queries and to make sure everything will go smoothly. Thank you so much- on behalf of my husband Erwin, my cousins, Christina and Ernest for a most memorable safari experience.

Warmest regards,

Gina

Matias & Michaela – Vic Falls to Swakop June 2019

Posted on August 1st, 2019 by Overland Africa

Hi Leisha, how are you? Sorry for my delay to response you, I had the visit of my brother from Milan.
I did a review in Trip Advisor a week ago, my feedback was excellent! In general terms the experience was very good, the work of the driver and the guide were very professional, the hotels were all very good and the places visited one more interesting than the other. The food in general was very good and sufficient, maybe having a refrigerator for the passengers would help more with the drinks agains the cooler. Having already spent the trip, I have no doubt that we made the best decision regarding the format of the tour, the numbers of days and the company we arranged. I sincerely want to go back !!!

The highlights: Ethosha National Park and Okavango Delta, but It is no fair with Chobe, Vic Falls or Swakupmund, or Kalahari desert…

On our next trip to Africa we will surely want to visit Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique and Malawi, with the option of visiting Congo. Regarding your advice and job, 10 points in every way!!!

Best regards,

Matias & Micaela

Lorenzo Salvioni – Mozambique and Kruger

Posted on July 16th, 2019 by Overland Africa

Go2Africa/Overland organized for me a fifteen day tour of Southern Africa which took me to the South of Mozambique as well as to Krueger Park and Johannesburg. The tour was very well structured and organized, plus I was very happy with Overland’s choice of accommodation. The safari that Overland booked for me at the Pretoriuskop Camp was also very much to my liking and the organization at the camp was overall really good.

All the arrangements included in the package were made by Leisha De Villiers whose unique professionalism greatly contributed to the success of my trip. All the while she was very efficient and quick to react and she proved to be responsive even when I contacted her on weekends! Last but not least, after I came back from my trip she helped me get a full refund for two airport transfers that I did not make use of during the Mozambique bit of my trip. Thanks to Leisha’s quick intervention I got the refund money shortly after my return to Europe.

Chantal & Friends – Cape Town to Windhoek

Posted on June 7th, 2019 by Overland Africa

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 Overland Africa

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
Nadia

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!

Elisa Mott and Friends – Johannesburg to Vic Falls – March 2018

Posted on April 2nd, 2019 by Overland Africa

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,

Elisa

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

Posted on April 2nd, 2019 by Overland Africa

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! ?

Georgia

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!

Cheerio,

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by Overland Africa

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
