Michaël Theys, Founder of AfricaFreak has teamed up with tour operator, Acacia Africa, the specialist travel blogger agreeing to host a 30-minute virtual tweet up on Saturday 19 March. Adventurers logging into Twitter from 2.45pm (GMT) will be able to quiz the expert on Acacia Africa’s 58-day Ultimate African Overlander, Michaël’s recent expedition covering eight countries including, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.

One explorer who definitely knows his way around the continent, Michaël has spent over 20 years living in Africa, his unwavering passion for the wildlife resulting in the creation of AfricaFreak: a URL featuring tips and more general information on the safari experience.

Michaël Theys, comments, “I’m looking forward to sharing my travel insights in the “twittersphere” as I brought back some amazing overland memories including, my first giraffe kiss! We covered a great deal of Africa in a short time span, the game parks we visited leaving us with more than a few Big Five moments. Our group caught sight of no less than three prides of lions in the Mara, but the pièce de résistance would have to be spotting two magnificent black backs in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Park.”

Before the tweet up kicks off, virtual nomads will be able to catch up with AfricaFreak on Facebook®, daily updates from Michaël’s overland jaunt going out live on Acacia Africa’s page from now through March.
