Acacia Africa are experts in their field and passionate about Africa. They offer exciting safaris to a variety of countries and have been doing so for over 20 years. They have grown in size and experience making them knowledgeable and reliable tour operators. The tours we have chosen are budget-friendly thus allowing you to visit places you may not otherwise be able to afford. The company targets 18 to 39 year olds who are fairly active with a group maximum of 24 pax. You will enjoy the tours even more if you go with your friends, but this age group promises to give you like-minded travellers you can meet and make friends with.
Acacia Africa focusses on giving you a genuine feel for the country by camping in the wild and experiencing the unique culture of Africa such as meeting tribe’s people and enjoying bushmen dances around the campfire. These are true African experiences that Acacia Africa wants to highlight.
Acacia Africa also offers Small Group Tours which are perfect if you prefer a smaller, more intimate African safari travelling in a group of no more than 14 people. Small group tours use a combination of camping in 2-man dome tents or rustic bedded accommodation.

The crew is made up of a Driver and a Tour Leader. The Driver will get you safely to your destination and know the rough roads well. They also know the best scenic stops for photographic opportunities. The Tour Leader assists with just about everything from informing you about the country you are visiting, to cooking delicious dinners.
Accommodation and Campsites
On the camping tours you will stay in 2-man dome tents to protect you from the elements with basic ablution facilities. Some will have added facilities such as bars and swimming pools. The tents have built-in mosquito nets and ground covers to keep most of the creepy-crawlies out!
The accommodated tours provide the essence of overlanding, but with the comfort of staying in lodges or tented camps. Some of the locations offer en-suites, while others have shared ablutions which are more rustic.
