Ask Gerry

Meet Gerry the Giraffe…a new addition to the African Overland Family. With a ginormous sense of adventure for fun and freedom, I am also an encyclopaedia of general knowledge for the travelling community. I am here to answer all your questions or confusions about what it is like to go on an African overland adventure. So if you have any questions or mere hesitations, why not drop me a line. I will be as refreshing as the Victoria Falls, as wise as an old owl, as honest as a bungee cord and as helpful as a bushman in the…um… bush.
