Im an ex passenger, i wouldnt advise using them in Africa at least, a group of ex passengers have set up a website to reveal the truth about them, visit

I would say go it alone. I have never been on an Overland bus so can't really comment, although I haven't heard many/any good stories about them. I think it is a for more enriching experience to tackle the challenges yourself.
