/Cecilie from Denmark


Hello Cecilie, my name is Tim, and I'm going on the African Odyssey trip in September. I'm really looking foward to it! Have you done an Overland trip before?

Tim (England)


hey tim and cecilie, i'm curtis 31 and am going on the african odyssey in september as well


Hi Curtis and Tim

Thanks for your comments - I can't way to go. I am 25 and from Denmark. Will be travelling with my boyfriend Morten; we are going to travel around the world starting in Africa.

 For once I wish the summer pass quickly:)

 See you in September.

 Best regards

Cecilie (and Morten) 


Hey Tim, regarding flights I'm in the process of booking flights as well,  have a look at and

From what I have found I think Emirates are the cheapest about at the moment, but their flights are quite long due to them stopping of at Dubai.


Hi, I'm Jon and I Thinking about doing this trip. Just need that finial push! Sitting at work it seems a little hard to imagine nearly 3 months on the road!


Hej Jon

Go for it! I really don't think you will regret it. Morten and I have once before left our jobs to travel for 4½ months, and we didn't regret a second of it! So please join us.

Looking forward to September. We are leaving for Kilimanjaro on the 6th of Sept - not much more than 2 months to go. Hurrah!

 See you



Hope that you decide to go on the trip, I'm sure it will be fantastic. I was cautious about travelling for three months too, but I have decided to bite the bullet and am going to stay in South Africa for a couple months after the trip ends as well. Anyway hope you decide to go and hopefully see you in nairobi


Hi I'm Vickie, I'm going to be going on this trip to! It's good to speak to others who are also going.


Hey vickie, glad to hear that your coming too, should be an amazing trip, see you in nariobi.


Hi Vickie. 

 GREAT - I hope it will be an amazing trip, and that more people join.

 See you in 2 months+

Is anyone on facebook? I've created a group 'Exodus African Odyssey 2008' if people want to join. I've finally made the choice and am coming along on this trip!


Have people booked their flights? Just wondering what the best deals are out there. I see Virgin are doing a direct flight from London for £450 (but you have to buy a return, the single is £750. Not sure how that works...)



hey jon, try, or

I believe that swiss air or emirates are two of the cheapest around at the moment.


Hey - my name is Bob - just taking a year out from work and joining the trip to fulfil a long held dream of experiencing africa. looking forward to meeting everybody. just booked and off to sort out flights - thanks for the tips.

see you there
