    This IS the ultimate trip to explore Africa, the countries you will visit are Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa (there is also the opportunity to visit Zimbabwe as well) My favourite moments were spending an hour with a family of beautiful mountain gorillas in Uganda, volunteering to paint the outside of a school also in Uganda and walking with two adorable lion cub brothers in Zimbabwe. Our group varied from 11 people on the Kenya - Uganda - Kenya leg to 21 and 23 people on the other legs. The age group was mainly young people in their 20's and 30's from Australia, New Zealand and Britain with the odd European and American thrown in for good measure. Our truck was really comfortable, at various times we bumped into other trucks run by other companies and compared to ours they looked very uncomfortable and some even had plastic walls, not good on the bumpy, dusty road I bet!! If you want to see the real Africa with an experienced and very professional organisation then go with Acacia Africa.

    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.
