You’re ready for an overland adventure off the beaten track across Africa if you: like to travel with friendly like-minded people, believe the journey is as important as the places you visit, don’t mind roughing it a little, or helping with the day to day chores, or you’re a solo traveller who doesn’t want to pay any single supplements.
If you like the sound of this then Acacia Camping Overlanding is for you.
Overlanding is arguably the ultimate way to experience Africa! Acacia’s fleet of self-sufficient, custom-built trucks are some of the finest in overland travel.
Camping on your safari offers the opportunity to get out under canvas in the African wilderness. We supply canvas dome tents with a metal framework, sewn in ground sheet and mosquito netting on the windows and doors. A fly-sheet is provided for rainy days and we provide a mattress too! All you need bring is your own sleeping bag, soft-side luggage and your sense of adventure.
Staying in tents means you'll save cash otherwise spent on accommodation, so you can budget to enjoy the activities, shop for souvenirs and enjoy a sundowner at the bars along the way instead.
Participation camping means you help out with the daily chores - you and your tent-buddy put your own tent up and down, and you'll be divided into teams to help with cooking and cleaning duties on a rota system. This is great to help you get to know your fellow travellers!
