"We were very happy to connect with African Overland Tours as we began our search for a trip to Namibia. We knew a few things we wanted and a few we did not. While it took a bit longer than expected to get our trip organized, Tammy found a perfect compromise with our desires and pocketbooks. The on line process was simple and we received prompt information about this. We can’t wait to finally experience Namibia."

"We are first time travellers to southern Africa. We consulted AOT who were able to offer us a variety of tours to choose from within our budget and time parameters. There was no hard selling whatsoever and they were excellent at answering all our questions promptly. This helped us to make our decision. The support has continued throughout, with nothing being too much trouble. Our tour commences on 30/01/2019. Based on our experience we are very happy to recommend AOT."

"All staff have been very helpfull, answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect tour for me. Even though they were very busy, they always kept me informed of the proces. The only down side was that the tour I picked turned out to be more expensive because the additional costs were written in really small letters so I did not see it. I was dissappointed but they told me they are working on showing this in a different way on the website and helped me find a tour that would fit my budget. Very satisfied!"
