African Wildlife from an Overlanding Truck

Monday, May 9th, 2011
  • Google+

Africa's wildlife spectacle is actually quite easy and inexpensive to access, if you've got the mettle of an overlander. Of course there are silver-service bush camps dotted throughout the wilds of Africa offering bespoke game viewing experiences, but unless you're on a film star's salary, chances are these types of safaris are something you'll save for later, and besides we've got an option that is infinitely more entertaining. Budget African travel from Overlanding Africa is definitely your best opportunity to experience Africa, her wildlife, landscapes, cultures and cities, plus you'll do it with a bunch of like-minded people whose agenda begins with fun and ends with good times.

Here's a fraction of the wildlife roaming Africa:

Although there's no best time to visit Africa, generally the Southern Hemisphere winter tends to offer better game viewing in Africa, the sparser vegetation and general decline in water availability means wildlife is easier to spot and animals reliably congregate around water holes.

If you're interested in visiting Africa on a budget holiday see our Overlanding Africa Tours page, or get in touch with one of our overlanding travel consultants, they're veterans of overlanding Africa trips and will excite you into an itchy feet frenzy about experiencing Africa from a truck.

A Time Lapse of the Night Sky in April 2011

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011
  • Google+

A Sahara sand storm, the milky way, stars in abundance, the dance of clouds shifting shapes and formations and the ever changing vistas of immense beauty is what photographer Terje Sorgjerd managed to capture when he undertook a photographic project in El Teide, Spain. As is mentioned by the artist himself, his goal was to capture the intense beauty of the location, and showcase the splendour in a series of time lapsed images. The result is breath-taking, and inspiring, see it for yourself. Night Sky Time Lapse

One thing is certain, the world we live in, in its fullness of beauty, is to be taken care of, by each and every one of us. Let’s build... Each one teach one!
