Since Acacia Adventures Holidays first set off on their first trip more than 23 years ago, their passion and focus has been on adventure. While the company may have grown, with more trucks, more staff, and more experience, the closeness between Africa and it’s people has grown even stronger. With a wide variety of tours, Acacia is one of the experts to look to when considering a trip to Africa. They offer the traditional overland trips, as well as small group safaris, treks and beach stays. Even though they offer a variety of tours and trips these days, the focus is still on exciting, affordable adventures for those who want to explore the wonders of Africa.

    Dear Mr Deng, Our sincere apologies for the late response to your feedback. Our offices were closed over the festive break and I was on leave. Thank you for your feedback following your recent Acacia tour. We do certainly appreciate your taking the time to complete the questionnaire. The accommodations used for the tour are selected either for their location or security or – in some cases – because there is little choice available and they are the best in the area. In some areas facilities (such as Wifi, air conditioning) vary in standard, largely due to varying infrastructure and local conditions throughout. I am sorry you feel the cost of the upgrade was not good value. The fact is you will have been given the best room available and while we will speak each property the difficulty – as I say –is that in sometimes choices are limited. In regard to driving, our tour dossiers/ trip notes give estimates for the number of hours you can expect to drive on each day – but again it varies according to conditions pertaining locally. We will look to see if we can emphasise this more for future clients, however. We will also use your comments regarding the tour leader (Shingi) for training purposes. All tour leaders - whether working alone or in pairs – must communicate fully with group members and this is something they normally enjoy. I have reviewed other client feedbacks, and no one mentions anything about communication but we will speak to Shingi in any event and I sure your comments will be helpful. On a more positive note, I am grateful for the comments on the food and friendliness of the local staff. Thank you again for taking the time to help us with your feedback. Kind regards Michelle Lewis (Sales and Marketing)
