Acacia Africa Campaign Against Plastic Pollution In Tanzania

The Tanzanian government has taken the decision to ban plastic bags (as of 01 June) and reduce the use of plastic. Keen to join the cause, Acacia Africa has signed up to help their local suppliers in a bid to limit the number of single use plastic bottles.

The Serengeti & Ngorongoro safari vehicles used by the tour operator are being fitted with new 20 litre water dispensers, each one filled with safe potable drinking water from Arusha.

Arno Delport, Sales & Marketing Manager at Acacia Africa, comments, "Now, we’re asking clients to come on board, by bringing along their own refillable water bottle instead of buying plastic bottles locally. If we have 100% of clients refilling it will significantly reduce the use of waste – our combined efforts helping to combat the threats associated with plastic pollution.”

If you’re keen on keeping Africa green, Acacia Africa also suggest sharing a bott-flie from your tour with the hashtag #Bringyourbottle to encourage other safari-goers to do the same.

In light of the their new commitment, the safari specialist is discounting several of its Tanzania focused tours including the 11-day Highlights of Tanzania. SAVE 20% (£263pp): The itinerary features game drives in the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, and a relaxing beach stay on the island of Zanzibar. From only £1,052pp (two sharing) + Adventure Pass from £700pp including transport, camping accommodation, most meals, services of a tour leader/driver. Departing 01 July and 29 July. Full tour price before discount £1,315pp. Starts Dar es Salaam- ends Nairobi. Book by 30 June. Excludes return flight as Acacia is land only. Independent flight price available on request.
