Donna "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..."

    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
