Acacia Africa Launches Accommodated Overland Tours In East Africa

Travellers taking on their first solo adventure in Africa have always been drawn towards overland travel, Acacia Africa’s escorted holidays appealing to 18-39 year olds who are keen on experiencing more of the continent with a guide. In 2014, the safari specialist broadened the age range and invitied everyone from tweens (eight to 12 years) to seniors to get in on the action with the launch of their Accommodated Overland portfolio. This summer the tour operator extended the collection from Southern to East Africa the private group tours, which take a maximum of 18 passengers, ideal for the growing number of multi-generational travellers.

With a softer form of overlanding, the accommodation for these tours is based in local B&Bs, hotels, backpacker lodges and ready made campsites where there's no need to pitch. This style of travel also covers more ground than the traditional one stop safari with families of all ages on a constant journey of discovery, whether they are learning about new cultures or finding out about the resident wildlife.

The 11 day Best Of East Africa expedition includes game drives in Tanzania’s Serengeti, the national park featured in the Lion King movie, and the Ngorongoro Crater, home to more than 30,000 wildlife year round. Starting and ending in Nairobi the itinerary also incorporates visits to Lake Nakuru, the Masai Mara and one of Kenya’s undiscovered gems, Lake Elementaita.

Acacia Africa offer accommodated overland expeditions in Southern and East Africa, the itineraries ranging from five to 20 days. Private group tour departures and costs are available on request and prices include transport, accommodation, most meals and services of a tour leader/driver. Land only, the tour operator does not offer return flights.
