Africa tour specialist Acacia Africa will launch six new overland expeditions covering Southern Africa in June.
Ranging from four to 46 days many of the itineraries include stops in the Kingdom of Swaziland and less well-travelled Lesotho.
Arno Delport, sales & marketing manager at Acacia Africa commented: “Our new overland tours will bolster what are already strong sales for South Africa. Over the last five years sterling has doubled in value against the rand and the budget friendly destination appeals to our core market of youth travellers – the new seven day Kruger, Swazi and Beach priced from only £325pp.
“A great time to visit the province of KwaZulu-Natal, this year the country will celebrate the 200th birthday of the Zulu nation. While it may be southern Africa’s smallest country, experts are also suggesting that the tiny Kingdom of Swaziland could well become Africa’s new adventure capital in 2016.”
The seven day Kruger, Swazi & Beach kicks off with Big Five game drives in the Kruger. A river cruise at the coastal town of St. Lucia, safaris in the Hluhluwe Game Reserve and optional mountain biking in Swaziland’s Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary also feature on the itinerary. From £325pp (no single supplement).
On the 19 day Kruger To Cape Town clients will have the opportunity to peer into the heart and soul of ancient cultures on village visits in Swaziland and Lesotho and explore South Africa’s historic battlefields on a guided tour. Skirting South Africa’s wild coastline and Indian Ocean beaches adventurers will have their pick of watersports, and with the promise of Big Five and Big Seven wildlife watching the expedition is bound to excite safari-goers. From £825pp (no single supplement) + adventure pass from £100pp.
Additional new overland tours include, the four day Kruger Safari, 12-day Coast, Lesotho & Cape Town, 40 day Southern Africa Adventurer and 46 day Southern Africa Explorer.
All prices include transport, camping accommodation, most meals and services of a tour leader/driver.
