Olaf Bleibtreu, 37, German - South African From dog-sledding guide in Norway, overlanding in East Africa, sailing all over Europe, to trekking in the Himalayas, anything to get the heart pumping. Extensive knowledge of Africa, guiding and cooking throughout Southern and Eastern Africa. I've run my own Food Truck business in Cape Town and have been a chef on many bush trips. Cooking slow food over the open fire is more than a hobby. I take good food and wine seriously. I'm also a qualified Tour Guide in the southern Cape with emphasis on wine tours :) Paragliding enthusiast since 7 years and avid Paramotor pilot since 2 years. Solo treks in South Africa, Namibia, Tanzania, Peru and Ladakh. ´´Join my trip´´ gives me the opportunity to share my love for Africa with fellow travellers and showcase what wonders, and awe-inspiring moments can be experienced here. I feel most alive when partaking in authentic, awe-inspiring moments with other humans. ‘‘Dreams are the fabric of our purpose, enticing us to embrace hardships for the motivation of feeling alive in an otherwise numbing path of least resistance.´´ Olaf Bleibtreu

The trip with Olaf through South Africa was one of the best trips I have ever made. I think very few people get to experience South Africa the way we did with Olaf. Deserted beaches, remote pass roads, hiking tours with local guides (organized by Olaf), cliff jumping in almost secret places, experiencing dolphins up close, paragliding, breakfast in the elephant park after watching the wild animals and evening barbecues where you can talk about everything. In short, simply the perfect trip with one of the best guides!!!!

The trip was simply amazing, there's not much more I can say, I'll try to mention a few highlights here: - Olaf is super friendly, for me the trip felt like going on a trip with friends. - everything was super organized, you really don't have to worry about anything, Olaf can always help with questions - the food every evening was great, you could also describe the trip as a cooking workshop with really unusual things (mussels, oysters, grilled tuna, lamb etc.) - we traveled very spontaneously and were flexible in terms of the weather (rain was forecast, so we simply went somewhere else) - The landscape of South Africa is simply incomparable, somehow a mixture of the USA, Australia and Portugal, Olaf of course knows the most beautiful spots (even those where you really don't see any other tourists for days). - the vacation was definitely action-packed (lots of hiking, climbing, parachuting, speedboating, watching dolphins and sharks, safari with elephants, zebras etc., in between the most beautiful wine farms) and in between lying on the beach to relax :) I can really only recommend this trip to everyone, the roof tents are great, 3 weeks in them is really no problem! @Olaf: I hope we can really get Namibia or something like that together again :)
