All Eyes on the Serengeti and Acacia Africa

Acacia Africa

With UK audiences currently tuning into the BBC’s “Serengeti,” the six-part wildlife drama series airing every Thursday at 8pm, and The Lion King movie scheduled for release later this month, all eyes are on the Serengeti. In their own ways, both use cutting edge technology to tell their story, both offerings presenting the viewer with many compelling reasons to book a safari in the national park.

If you need further convincing that now is the time to take a trip to the endless plains, Acacia Africa has just launched its Three-For-Two promo, which means a total saving of £1,315 or (£438pp) when three friends travel together on the 11-day Highlights of Tanzania camping overland tour.

The Lion King

With the reimagined CGI version of The Lion King scheduled for release later this month, Acacia Africa claims many travellers, especially families, are going to be tempted by the idea of a safari in the Serengeti.

Arno Delport, Marketing Manager at UK tour operator, Acacia Africa, comments, “When the “Lion King” was first released back in 1994, it brought the Serengeti and Olduvai Gorge to life on the big screen, the global Disney hit inspiring viewers to visit the locations on which the animated movie was based. With Beyonce lending her voice to Nala in the remake, Tanzania can expect much the same, if not a greater stampede of set-jetters. Her cult-like following and involvement in the film will no doubt help to boost interest in safari holidays - the power of the music icon's influence evident in the recent 60-million deal she reportedly agreed with Netflix.”

The Lion King is scheduled for release on July 19 in the UK, leaving the main school holidays free for a family safari.

The seven-day Timeless Tanzania is part of the operator's Short Safaris & Treks collection, the tour visiting both the Serengeti and the Olduvai Gorge. From £2,115pp (two sharing) and Safari Pass from £500pp including transport, accommodation (two-nights twin share hotel with en-suite facilities, four-nights twin share lodge with en-suite facilities) most meals and services of a tour leader/driver. Starts Nairobi - ends Nairobi. From eight years. Daily departures.
