African elephantThe past two months has seen a huge increase in inquiries and bookings for Acacia’s small-group safari programs in Southern Africa.
With most borders now open to vaccinated travellers, without the need for additional testing, travellers are more confident about securing safari tours for 2022.
The increase in bookings and inquiries has enabled Acacia to schedule weekly departures for many of its small-group safari tours and to guarantee dates for the coming 4-6 months. The most popular itineraries so far have been the 14-day Southern African Magic, 12-day Delta and Chobe Waterways, 7-day Kruger & Victoria Falls and 7-day Okavango Wilderness Trail.
Currently, Acacia has its first adventure tours on the road, namely the 19- and 25-day Desert Tracker, as well as 12-day Desert and Delta Express, and 11-day Cape Desert Safari.
Acacia Africa Director, Vivian McCarthy said “it is great to see such a fantastic increase in bookings across Southern Africa. Clearly, travellers are ready to tour Africa again and we are so excited to be hosting them. In addition to our small-group programs, we’ve also seen a great uptick in our city breaks and short stay safari programs which operate on request with daily departures for a minimum of only 2 passengers.”
Acacia Africa offers more than 130 different tours and packages across Southern & East Africa and is represented in Australia by Evolution Travel Collective (ETC).
As is the ETC model, all reservations enquiries will be directed back to an expert within the Acacia Africa reservation team with the ETC team to provide the on-ground training and support to travel agents across Australia.
