I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

Who said you can not enjoy a long Overland Safari?

I had a wonderful time during the 7 month Trans Africa. Part of the West cost of Africa was a challenge which I will remember for a long time. The scenery and wildlife from Namibia onwards was breathtaking.

The younger generation on the truck gave me the challenge to do things I always was to scared to do in my live. I did tandem skydiving, quad bike riding in the sand dunes, white water rafting on the Zambezi river, bungy jumping of the Victoria Bridge and the micro light flight over the Victoria Falls.

Our driver Brian was excellent and a good mate.

All in all I can recommend the tour to people who like something more exciting than a standard organised tour. A truly memorable experience of a lifetime.

An organized tour is never going to be quite as “there” as independent travel,

An organized tour is never going to be quite as “there” as independent travel, but this overland operator runs well-organized tours and I had a very enjoyable experience.

It is a good way to get to all the interesting places easily in a short time and the route was well-planned. Apart from the obvious tourist sights, other highlights were playing football with villagers in Malawi, shopping in local markets for group meals, and bushcamping in the middle of nowhere. Although there were some long drives, the travelling did not outweigh the sights and activities. I enjoyed my trip from Nairobi to Jo’burg and thought it was a good introduction to the continent before continuing on my own.
