Book Later & Give More Back To Africa With Acacia Africa`s August Discounts

By SOP newswire2

Overlanding has always been the best option when it comes to value added Africa, but Acacia is slashing its August departures by 40%, allowing adventurers to spend longer on the continent and splurge more of their hard earned cash on the holiday.

Optional activities are available throughout the complete portfolio of tours, so whether it`s viewing the Victoria Falls from a microlight, enjoying Lake Malawi on horseback or volunteering for a day in Jinja, travellers will be able to tick off a few more of those once in a lifetime experiences in Africa.

Heath Ashcroft, Marketing Director at Acacia Africa, comments:
Overlanding is concerned with seeing the real Africa at the coal face, up close and personal. 

Community visits, exposure to wildlife conservation projects and `chewing the fat` with the locals are all part of the plan. And with greater tour discounts, you can not only do more in Africa, you can also do more for Africa, as Acacia travellers can pay for additional activities in the destination, the money directly benefiting communities and projects across the continent.
