Leo Wolanin – Impressive Tanzania Lodge Safari – November 2018

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by Overland Africa

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

I’ll definitely contact you again the next time I visit Africa. I really want to return in May but I don’t think it’s going to happen. I’ll share your name with anyone who asks. You’ve been awesome!

“We are both very grateful for the efforts that you both made on our behalf in trying to get our bag back.  We fully accept responsibility for losing it in the first place, but we never thought that once the bag was identified that we would have so much trouble getting it back.  Your efforts, and those of others, really add to the absolutely amazing experience that we had on our travels.

I know that I have expressed it many times and you may be sick of it, but we really do appreciate the efforts that you both went to in organising the tour that you did for us.  Your advice and genuine efforts to make it a great experience for us was second to none, and something that we will cherish for a long time.  I would like to stay in touch as we will definitely be back to South Africa at some stage.  I am not very good at Facebook, but if you have an account, I would love to have you both as a friends.

I hope that you and your families are both well, and that business is booming.  I am definitely spreading the word on our African experience, probably to the point where people are avoiding me”

Everything Taken Care Of

Posted on November 6th, 2017 by Overland Africa

WOW Gelle is amazing. After planning a wedding, planning a holiday was the last thing we wanted to do. We had been talking to one of our friends who was also thinking about going to Africa and told us that they had been talking to Gelle Richie from Go2africa who was based in South Africa. We emailed Gelle to see if she could help us and we got a reply back within hours asking us a few questions on what we wanted to do, time, price range. The only things that we really wanted to do was see the big 5, some camping and trek with the Gorillas within a 6 week period. Not knowing much about Africa we asked Gelle what she would do. So Gelle organised us 21 day TransKalahari Adventure where we saw the Big Five and amazing landscape. From there we went to Kenya and Tanzania were we camped in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro crater. Now this is where Gelle come in, two things i have told everyone that is thinking about visiting Africa is have a travel agent based in Africa and the other is only have Gelle to do it for you. While we were on our way back from Tanzania to Nairobi – Kenya we got a email and phone call telling us about the fire at the Nairobi International Airport. Our flight was the next day at 1240pm. Gelle gave us updates via emails and mobile phone. Having Gelle giving us information we felt comfortable that we still had our flights. Gelle also was in contact with our next tour in Uganda giving them updates so everything would run smoothly.

Also at the start of our trip we had our bags go missing at the Australian end. We let Gelle know just to give a update. Gelle was right on the case ringing the airport giving us updates via emails, this was all done outside of office hours, some time 11 pm at night. Gelle thank you so much for helping us see and experience Aftrica. We will be telling everyone that has been thinking about Africa to do it and go though Gelle at Go2afica.com. The only thing we had wish we could of done was to meet Gelle face to face.

Thanks again!
