Acacia’s 13-day Small Group Kenya & Tanzania Accommodated Adventure combines classic Africa with stays in inexpensive, yet comfortable lodges and tented camps. The complete itinerary includes game drives in the Masai Mara, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, a Masai Culture village walk in Arusha, and a stay on Zanzibar. The tour is priced from £2,115pp including a 10% discount, transport, accommodation (including comfortable lodges and tented camps, plus bush camping in the Serengeti/Ngorongoro), most meals and services of a tour leader and driver.
Arno Delport, Marketing Manager at Acacia Africa, comments: “Priced from only £602pp for a four-day Kruger Safari, every Small Group Adventure is packed with immersive experiences from seeing the wildlife to engaging with local communities. All the memorable African experiences of Acacia’s Adventure Tours will remain – but without the crowd!”
Delport also notes that while the continent’s classic safari destinations, including Kenya’s Masai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti are still expected to be popular this year, travellers are keen to see more of Africa. He says: “Bucket lists are expanding, and we are seeing growing interest for more out of the way places, for example, Eswatini and Lesotho.
“Overall travellers are more confident about booking longer trips, and well ahead of their departure, the pent up demand for travel to Africa refueling the coffers of worthy conservation and community projects.”
