Pillars of Positivity

Lion drinking from road side potholeAt the helm of the Overlanding Africa team is Minette Thiart, with over a decade of experience as an overland tour leader. Minette's expertise stretch from Eastern and Southern Africa all the way over to South America: this betty knows her stuff.

As Overlanding Africa's senior travel consultant, Minette and her years of field experience have perfected the art of campfire cake baking and matching the perfect trip to each enquiring traveller. We say that's an art too; modestly she says it's a skill.

From surviving being trampled by an elephant, rammed by rhino and walking in on fresh leopard kill, Minette has grown a pair and uses them to get clients great deals - always delivering on finding a trip within a client's budget.

Her undying love for overland travel brought her to Overlanding Africa's travel consultant desk where she has booked clients from all over the world a seat on the journey of a lifetime, a thousand times over. Her passion, enthusiasm, infectious laugh and extrovert personality are a constant pillar of positivity, making for happy, satisfied clients all the way. Go Minette!
