FAQs

  • Does this tour allow travelers over the age of 40 join the tour?

    Acacia Africa specifically markets their tours to 18-39 year olds exclusively as they encourage backpackers and young travellers. This is simply so that first time travellers or other young people can be comfortable that they will be travelling with people their own age only.

  • What is the Adventure Pass?

    Every Overland tour has an Adventure Pass which is paid to your tour leader in Africa at the beginning of the tour (or pre-paid by arrangement prior to your tour). This is separate and in addition to the Tour Price, and covers selected park entries, activities and excursions along the way where payment goes directly to the supplier to ensure local suppliers benefit directly from the income.
