I just came back from a 7-day Small Groups accommodated tour from Johannesburg to Vic Falls with Acacia Africa. This was one of my best travel experiences ever! The itinerary was great as it allows you to see all the main highlights along the route. We were able to see four out of the big five - just because leopards are very difficult to spot during the day. We stayed in very nice places and the lodges/guesthouses/hotels were nice and clean. Our tour guide, Lawrence, was incredible - with a great sense of humor and he made sure everybody's interests were met. He was fantastic at creating a true family spirit within the group despite that the composition of the group was changing along the way. All local tours in the national parks were amazing as he provided lots of information along the way, even taking us as close as possible to the animals. At some point, we were as close as 5 meters to white rhinos. Oh, and the food was amazing! I didn't expect steaks, nice big salads etc. included in the package. If I ever decide to take another tour in Africa, Acacia will be my go-to company. Well done! I will definitely recommend this to other travelers.
“BEST TOUR EVER!” I did a 14-day overland from Vic Falls to Johannesburg including Mozambique and it was the best two weeks I have ever spent! We saw all the attractions you could ever want to see and had plenty of time to do our own exploring if we wanted to. There were also plenty of opportunities to do our own activities and have as much fun as we could. The camping facilities were amazing! Tents and food were provided including a cooked breakfast every morning and dinners to die for. Our tour leader Shingi was the most enthusiastic person I have ever met and is really knowledgeable, helpful and flexible. (We love you, Mama). Our driver Jairos was equally lovely and drove our truck amazingly on the bumpy roads of Africa. I would definitely recommend this tour for 18-39-year-olds and is a must do adventure.
We are a German family with 3 teenagers and had a wonderful tour through South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Acacia has put together a very exciting trip through these three countries, visiting Kruger NP, Victoria Falls, Chobe NP and Okavango Delta. We were travelling with a small group of German, English and Italian people, all very nice. We had the perfect tour guide, Simon, who was always very supportive, calm and reliable in all situations. A big, big thank you to Simon. The lodges were clean and comfortable, we enjoyed the African style and friendly people. We booked the tour via the agency African Budget Safaris, which also was very good, providing all information about the tours. Especially the agent Claire Monson helped us a lot, a big thank you. We really recommend this tour, if you are looking for an adventure trip for the whole family without driving on your own. The National Parks were amazing, we never saw so many wild animals so close in nature, the rangers were very skilled and explained all details.
I just finished the overland camping trip from Cape Town to Victoria Falls/Livingstone. Amazing!! The guide and driver - yo Big Sam! - were great, nothing was too much trouble and they really worked hard to make sure we all had an incredible time. The itinerary was perfect, we got to see and do so many amazing things - the Okavango Delta, dune 45, sandboarding, skydiving, Chobe National Park, Vic Falls... I could name so much more! And the campsites were incredible, think watching shooting stars on a huge rock in the middle of nowhere, or camping literally next to a elephant watering hole with no fences around you! If you have doubts about camping please don't - the mattresses were A LOT more comfy than i expected, the tents were HUGE and i had hot showers most of the time! And the FOOD. I definitely put on a few kgs. Overall it was an incredible experience with an amazing group of people that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend! Thanks acacia!
The highlight of our tour to Victoria Falls was our excellent guide Simon. He really went above and beyond to keep us happy and safe. Simon's enthusiasm is infectious, he is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about show what Southern Africa has to offer. We had an unavoidable change of itinerary due to the political situation in Zimbabwe and Simon was able to keep us well informed and make alternate arrangements. The tour itself was a great way for us to see Kruger, Botswana and Victoria Falls. There are some long days driving but the spectacular views of Victoria Falls are worth it. The accommodation is adequate, with the first 2 nights at Nsele Lodge a highlight. The host are very welcoming and the food amazing. We would recommend Acacia Africa to anyone looking for a guided tour in Africa.
From Vic Falls to JoBurg - camping all the way. So much fun and what an experience. Great guide! Beautiful places to visit. Highlight was Elephant Sands!!
The whole trip was spectacular from the border crossings to the safaris in the truck every bit of it was cultural and enjoyable. The scenery is something from a story book, from lush rainforests to salt lakes and sand dunes it's incredible that you get to see so much in one continent.
As a solo woman traveler I would totally recommend booking with this company! You get to meet a lot of people on the truck and the tour guide makes everything so much easier and pleasant.
Fantastic tour from joburg to Victoria falls. Very knowledgeable guide who gave great facts without personal opinion. Fantastic value also.
I can't pick my favourite moment - Sleeping under the stars at Spitzkoppe, skydive in Swakopmund, swarms of elephants in Chobe, rafting on the Zambezi, bushman walk in the Kalahari, scenic flight over the Okavango Delta. These incredible experiences will stay with me for the rest of my life.
