I recently returned from the 19 day trip from Cape Town to Livingstone with Acacia Africa and I could not recommend it more!
Myself and a school friend joined 10 others on the Truck Mara with guide Darlington and driver Sam. What a group! We couldn't have asked for a better bunch of people to travel with. Darlington was incredibly knowledgable about all of the sites that we visited, an AMAZING cook (the food was incredible - healthy, varied, tasty) and always up for a laugh. Sam had some really long driving days during the trip, but was always happy, relaxed and willing to chat when we were on the campsites.
The itinerary was incredible, a trip of highlights. There was one small change from the itinerary I had been sent, but I don't think this impacted our enjoyment at all. 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. Thank you Acacia, and thank you Team Douche Canoe!! #PABU
