Hi! I’m Vicki, a UK law graduate who has taken the long route to a regular 9 to 5 job in her field. Originally from a small town outside Manchester in the UK, I settled in Melbourne, Australia after 4 years traveling around the world. In that time I worked for Walt Disney World in Florida, USA, ran 5 different hotels in the French, Swiss & Austrian Alps and spent any spare time I had exploring the globe.

Overlanding as part of a guided group is easily one of the best ways to travel – particularly in Africa!
We recently joined a budget overland safari which took us through 5 countries. Notwithstanding all the border crossings, having a local guide was invaluable in what is affectionately known as the ‘dark continent’.
From shopping and money/currency advice, to finding suitable campsites and cooking with limited facilities – everything was (on the whole) seamless and well organized. I normally like to book everything myself individually, but taking an overland guided adventure allowed me to relax and only having to make minor decisions gave me stress-free time to really enjoy Africa.

Travelling as a group can be tough sometimes, and it’s probably not the ideal option for everyone, but if you’re heading to Africa, I can highly recommend it.
If you want to know more, have a read of my post about what to expect on an overland safari in Africa – I cover all the basics and some things you wouldn’t think of!
