AA took me from Nairobi to Vic Falls and I really enjoyed the experience. The group had people from different ages and backgrounds, from uni students to retired ladies. After a few days you feel very familiar to your travel buddies and there is a general feeling of cordiality and warmth. The food was great and I could make it healthysh. There is options for vegetarians, lots of fruits and vegetables if you like.
The truck is fine if you keep in mind that an overland camping tour in Africa not supposed to be comfortable. I felt safe all the time and reafirmed my belief that dangerous places are not necessarily those where many people live a very simple life.
The only thing I missed was having contact with local people. But I understand that this is a group tour, and a deeper contact demand a different travel style.

Had the time of my life reminded me that I was still young (in mind). V and Kanyo where out of this world made everything really easy for us all (even if I beat Kanyo in the chilli challenge) ok we will call it a draw as we both ate the hottest chilli Africa had to offer raw. I can't recommend the 58 day trip from Cape Town to Nairobi highly enough everything you could wish to do is all there for you my personnel highlights were trekking to see the mountain gorillas, the Ngorongoro crater, trying surfing, white water rafting on the grade 5 Rapids on the Zambize, winning 150 000 in the casino in Uganda ( don't get excited was only enough for 20 beers). Thanks V, every game drive had something new to see. What really made the trip was the like minded people who all went to have great experiences and lots of fun. The 4 day stay on Zanzibar was another highlight, sometimes you need a holiday from your holiday just to relax and recharge the batteries. All in all a great holiday with memories and friends I will remember all my life.
Absolute thanks for a great time, only one downside I had to go back to work after wished I could have stayed forever.
Hope to see you soon

I did Killi first; superb - organized like a dream & then moved on to Nairobi to start the trek to Cape Town; 72 days of pure, unadulterated bliss. We had a full bus (not a truck!!! haha) most of the way and although the dynamics changed a little Vee kept it all together with a very laid back hands on approach. After every 'special' day we all commented that was the best day ever - think we got to 22 best days ever - superb. Patrick and BJ the drivers where serious contenders for best supporting act. I've already got some people who want to do it; might do part again myself as need to see the crater lake in DRC - before or after. Superb value for money, great team work, hassle free - I haven't really come down yet and that's over a month ago. Book it and enjoy an experience of a lifetime.

About Absolute Africa

Founded in 1979, Absolute Africa has been operating expertly led overland tours throughout Africa for over twenty five years.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They are staffed by an entirely local crew, letting you see a different side of Africa through local eyes. Apart from their popular overland tours, they also offer gorilla treks, Kilimanjaro climbs, and add-ons such as a beach stay on Zanzibar Island.

Who Travels With Them?

Typically younger travelers take these tours - though there is no age limit. Do be prepared to chip in and help with setting up camp, cleaning, and cooking. Overland tours involve some camping, and days can be long and not always comfortable - so go with an adventurous spirit!  

Where Do They Operate?

They focus exclusively in Africa, with tours ranging from 9-11 weeks to 1-3 weeks.

Why Travel With Them?

If you’re itching for an adventure, and are looking for a completely unique experience, Absolute Africa is sure to deliver. You’ll meet like-minded adventurous travelers who enjoy overland travel, and get to truly be a part of making the trip meaningful as you contribute to all aspects of the journey.
