    This tour was absolutely incredible from the start to the end. Went on the 43 day tour from Kenya to Cape Town and the trip covered everything possible. The tour guide Rachel and truck driver Sam were brilliant, they had so much knowledge and looked after us all - kept us fed very well! All the campsites were better than my expectations, they were cleans, had bars at most of them and occasionally even a pool. I would happily book again with Acacia to do another tour and also highly recommend them to anyone considering travelling around Africa!

    Tony and Sam were most excellent hosts, very knowledgable and informative.The tour was, in the end, a very life changing experience that I will treasure forever.The scenery, the animals, the people along the way were fantastic. It is hard to choose what was my favourite part of the tour, but a few notables would be Zanzibar, Victoria falls,Masaai Mara, Serengetti, The Crater, Namibia. Among individual camping area's Elephant Sands, Canyon Roadhouse, Kande Beach stand out in my mind.Again THANKS to Sam and Tony for making the trip a very warm and pleasurable experience, the meals that these guys can cook up on a 2 burner campstove are amazing, especially Tony's BBQ ribs, they are to die for.

    We were the oldest on this tour (but the youngest at heart)! We could not have been in better hands taking us through the 7 African countries. Our guide was a great cook and made our lives easier for that. She was knowledgeable about the countries, always giving us the facts before we arrived. She assisted with currency exchange, where to shop for the best deals, etc. Our days were full, with lots of them starting at 5:00 a.m. I will forever remember the white water rafting on the Zambezi River and quading on the sand dunes in Swakopmund. The safari's were awesome and I highly recommend the game walk out of Livingstone. It is a surreal feeling to be so close to the animals - the white rhinos especially! I would do this again in a heartbeat! We hope to return to Namibia and do the coast around Cape Town - a reason to return! There were a few issues on our trip which I believe our guide worked very hard to resolve. We had a truck roll over on the Serengeti safari, and 2 very unhappy couples to deal with. I would ask that Acacia bring their tents up to better condition and match poles to tents (same bag numbers). All this aside I would still recommend Acacia for this type of adventure trip. We have traveled for 38 years and I will go out on a limb and say this trip was rated in our top 5!! Well done Sam, you managed to get a group of 24, all having different needs and expectations, safely to Cape Town.

    I'd like to express my gratitude for the experience I had with Acacia Africa earlier this year on a tour from Nairobi to Cape Town led by Prosper and Khumbu. The tour was truly life changing for me and the professionalism and personalities of the tour leader and driver were a big part of this. At all times I found Prosper and Khumbu to be fun, entertaining, helpful and accomodating. They're outstanding attitudes rubbed off on myself and my fellow voyagers, allowing us all to get the most out of our trip. I would also like to thank the whole of Acacia Africa for the smooth journey I experienced. I am sure that there is a mountain of behind-the-scenes work being done for each of these trips. The fact that our most noticeable hiccups were flat tyres reflects very well on the professionalism of everyone involved. Fave place visited: Spitzkoppe, Namibia Fave camp: Chitimba, Lake Malawi Fave activity: Serengeti game drives Fave animal spotted: Secretary birds Best swim: Kande Beach, Lake Malawi Best bar: Orange River stay, South Africa Best drink: Long island Iced teas, Zanzibar (beach stay)

  • Marcia9th August 2018
    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
