    4.0 - Good

    Overall, this was a good tour. Some days we were in the van for endless hours...but I understand that this was necessary. The location in Maun, although good in many ways including the food there, caused a lot of extra driving to the boat depot. Many of us wished that there had been more time to relax ...as the schedule didn't allow for much. I was very impressed with our driver/guide, Simon, who was extremely conscientious and worked long & hard every day . The accommodations ranged from excellent to adequate. The last place in Botswana would be fine in the summertime, but the "open air" rooms were quite chilly when we were there.

    Absolutely loved my southern Africa overland tour with Acacia. Sam and Liz were amazing and we all felt like a little family. My favourite day was the okavango delta in beautiful Botswana. Might even be the best day of my four month trip around Africa

    I just got back from a 14 day Southern African Magic (Accommodated). The trip was absolutely amazing. My best vacation so far. This was my first trip alone. Thanks to the guide I felt safe. We saw all the attractions you could ever wish to see and had plenty of time to do our own exploration if we wanted it. We were able to see the big five. Our guide Simon was terrific. He made sure everyone was doing well, and if someone complained, he always tried to find solutions. That man always had a big smile no matter what, and sense of humor. He was our wikipedia on the trip. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about showing what South Africa has to offer. His enthusiasm was very infectious and he was great in creating a true family spirit within the group. Would definitely recommend Acacia to other travelers :-)

All accommodations are clean and exactly what I expected from a safari style holiday. The food was also excellent to exceptional in all locations we stayed. The weather at this time of the year was perfect for us; cold in the mornings/evenings and 25 to 30 during the day, always with blue sky.
