I am a 75 yr old solo female and I’ve just completed Acacias 41-day overland tour from Cape Town, S. Africa to Nairobi, Kenya with our wonderful tour leader, Chrispen and driver extraordinaire, Harmony. I made the right decision to pay more and be accommodated in a room instead of a tent for my trip and it was definitely the right decision for me!

This trip is barebones with everyone helping out with the day to day chores of cooking, cleaning and packing up almost daily. Expect very long days in big overland trucks that are not too comfortable for 10-16 hour driving days! Often the toilets are a bush beside the road! But, if you are looking for a life changing adventure through the real Africa, this is it. It is not just a “tour” for “tourists” who want to see Africa and still have the comforts of home!

Whenever something didn’t go as planned, we just said TIA (this is Africa!) I can highly recommend this trip and would not want to do it with any other leader (Chrispen) and driver (Harmony)!! And, I was fortunate to have a small group (9 max), so we could really stretch out on the truck during those very long days!

This trip was even more amazing than I thought it would be. Tour leader and driver Pili and Khumbu were fantastic, great cooking and support all the way. Exemplary. The campsites were really good, either wild or with a much needed pool at day’s end - it was hot! Impressed with the included trips and options. Highlight was the skydive with Ground Rush and rafting at Victoria Falls. Saw a lot of amazing wildlife. Can’t wait to book on again with Acacia from Victoria Falls to Nairobi!

Absolutely amazing from start to finish.
We did a tour from pretoria finishing in livingston and it was hands down the best experience of my entire life.
i honestly don’t think the trip wouldn’t have been the same without our fantastic guide kingston and brilliant driver moto. these guys deserve all the credit in the world because of their hospitality, knowledge and the 10 star treatment.
the experiences we had over the course of this tour were just absolutely unbelievable and we had no set backs what so ever.
i will never ever forget this trip, the people we met and friendships made along the way and most importantly kingston and moto…

Pete and Francis were incredible! They were so kind and knowledgeable and really went above and beyond to make sure we all had the best trip possible. The entire trip ran smoothly and the food was also delicious! We had an incredible time in Uganda.
