With 25 years of expertise in planning and operating safaris, the Acacia team has pinned down the best dates to explore some of East and Southern Africa’s most exciting destinations – from the world-renowned Masai Mara to the Bazaruto Archipelago – tipped to be one of the world’s dive meccas.
Garden Route Express – Save £182pp
With meteorologists claiming Britain is about to be hit with its coldest winter in 30 years, a journey across South Africa’s Eastern and Western Cape is looking all the more attractive. Offering a Mediterranean climate in reverse, from November to March you can expect generally dry and hot summer weather with day time temperatures of 25-35 Celsius and an average of 10 hours of sunshine a day.
Book the NEW four-day Garden Route Express, visits to the coastal paradise of Tsitsikamma, the Klein Karoo’s Cango Caves (its dripstone caverns opening into vast halls of towering stalagmite formations), Hermanus, the “Whale Watching Capital of the World,” and a local winery near Cape Town included on the itinerary.
From only £183pp + Adventure Pass from £20pp. Starts Port Elizabeth – ends – Cape Town. Twice monthly departures. Full tour price before discount £365pp.
Mozambique & Zimbabwe Explorer Southbound – Save £917pp
Explore Mozambique’s Southern coastline between September and November and you’ll hit the jackpot when it comes to the ultimate underwater safari. Calm and warm weather means increased visibility for divers, and the whale migration will be in full flow – the humpback whales returning from Antarctica to have their young.
Lauded as a global hotspot for shark and ray diversity by National Geographic earlier this year and on GQ’s list of the “Coolest Places to visit,” there’s even more reason to flipper up in Mozambique, the Bazaruto Archipelago an eco hotspot – African Parks managing its 1,430 square kilometres, the organisation working to create a conservation-led economy that benefits local communities.
14-day Mozambique & Zimbabwe Explorer southbound from only £918pp + Adventure Pass from £160pp. Starts Victoria Falls – ends – Pretoria. Max group size 12. Twice monthly departures (March through November). Full tour price before discount £1,835pp.
Kenya & Tanzania Adventure – Save £697pp
The annual migration and the chance to witness over 1.5 million wildebeest and roughly 30,000 zebra stomping across the Masai Mara is still one of Africa’s all-time favourite safari experiences. Its bucket list popularity shot up this year, the game reserve’s first polka-dotted zebra drawing her own fan base.
Grab a seat on the 13-day Kenya & Tanzania Adventure, and should luck strike twice there’s always a chance you might spot the Serengeti’s Golden Zebra (first sighted in February), both parks visited alongside the Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar. While the migration is dependent on the rains, June through September is the best time to visit.
From only £698pp (no single supplement) + Adventure Pass from £1,130pp. Starts Nairobi – ends Dar es Salaam. Twice-monthly departures. Full tour price before discount £1,395pp.
Troop To The Gorillas – Save £362pp
If you want optimum conditions for gorilla trekking (the activity taking anything from two to six hours), aim for the dry seasons (January through February and June through September) as you will be tackling dense undergrowth.
In 2019, Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park was ranked as the most beautiful place in the world by CNN travel and it made National Geographic’s list of the top travel destinations to visit before you die. Still the best country for budget backpackers, even with the recent increase (from 01 July 2020), permits in Uganda are much more affordable than in neighbouring Rwanda.
the Acacia Africa Six-day Troop To The Gorillas trip starts from only £363pp + Gorilla & Chimp Permit £560pp. Starts Kampala – ends – Kampala. Twice monthly departures. Full tour price before discount £725pp.
Kruger Safari – Save £187pp
Getaway with Acacia Africa at South Africa’s premier game reserve, the Kruger has retained its position as one of the most popular wildlife haunts in Africa – especially with first-time safari-goers – the high density of animals, including all the Big Five, the main reason for its allure.
With Acacia Africa’s 2 FOR 1 offer you can fix up a peak season stay in the national park, for a fraction of the usual price.
The NEW four-day Kruger Safari includes two full days of game drives. From only £188pp + Adventure Pass from £110pp. Starts Pretoria – ends Pretoria.
Twice monthly departures. Full tour price before discount £375pp.
