Passenger Profile #11: Leon - African Trails 'Ultimate Trans Africa' Overland Trip

  • Name: Leon
  • Age: 30
  • From: Cape Town
  • Aliases: Happy Hippo, The Love Walrus, Leon Lumemberg (a Squirt original),
  • Most likely to say: "You know it!"
  • Trip leg: Morocco to Cape Town

Dryest sense of humour you'll ever come accross - sometimes hard to tell the difference between real and joke; I just take eveything as a joke until told otherwise.

Knows everything about South Africa - is a fount of knowledge.

Spent 80% of the time in the truck sitting up front in the cab and couldn't be budged.

A REAL ginger and proud of it.

It was so hard to tell if Leon was asleep or awake through the shades - the open mouth was the only proof!!

Posing in front of an abandoned oil rig in the Namib desert (shortly before Kyle fell through the ceiling!)


Looking a bit scared perhaps before the Canopy Walk??

Camera happy

Letting a donkey squeeze past in a narrow alley of the Morrocan Souks

The Zaffers took a side excursion into Senegal and LOVED it

Best. Picture. Ever.

Such a friendly bloke!

Leon in red!
