Our good friends at Wikipedia defines overlanding as: “self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, but not exclusively, it is accomplished with mechanized off-road capable transport, the principal form of lodging is camping, often lasting for extended lengths of time (often months) and spanning international boundaries.”
If we at Acacia Africa Tours were to extract one phrase from the above it would be that, “the journey is the principal goal.” Moreover, we would argue that the journey is as important as the places you visit. To this end, cultivating an extraordinary a passion for Africa on all levels has always been our chief ambition.
We are of the opinion (and so are our past guests) that the sociable and outgoing nature of our loyal, dedicated team of staff go a long way to securing exceptionally well-run tours into Africa. Our Camping Overland Tours have the habit of forging like-minded and inquisitive nomads from the initial strangers that arrived on our doorstep. There definitely is something to be said for confined spaces being an ideal platform for social ice breaking. Whether it be in a tent, travelling in the back of one of our self-sufficient, custom-built trucks or convening for one of our legendary pre-departure meetings – Acacia Africa Tours’ travel mates soon become your newfound family.
The camping part of your Acacia Africa Overland Tour offer the humbling experience and amazing opportunity to settle under canvas in the African wilderness. “Tenting it,” means you’ll save serious cash which alternative accommodation would’ve swallowed whole. This allows you the budget to enjoy additional activities, shop for souvenirs and enjoy a few extra “toots” at the taverns along the way.
So in closing, if you’re a passionate traveller looking for guaranteed personable, attentive and flexible experiences – stop looking and start booking!
