Wild Africa: Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia

This program was my fourth sub-Sahara African safari (previously: Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa). My experiences in each safari was different, but this program ranked with the best. Highly recommended. Read more

Had a good time! October 2015


Zanzibar to Cape Town

Just come back from my amazing 34 day Zanzibar to Cape Town trip. It flew past - I had such a good time. Sam and Julius, my trip leader and driver, were awesome, really helpful and funny and had lots of interesting stories to tell. Had a great group too and have so many fantastic memories. From the white sands of Zanzibar, the smiling, waving children of Malawi, walking with lions and swimming at the top of Victoria Falls, gliding through the reeds of the Okovango Delta in a mokoro, elephants wandering through the campsite, seeing all the wildlife drinking from the watering hole at Etosha, skydiving over the Namibia dunes in Swakopmund, climbing up Dune 45 through the mist only for it to clear with the sunrise to going up to the top of Table Mountain and feeling on top of the world in Cape Town. Really want to go back and I've only been home a day. If you are hesitating about booking - just go for it! I loved every second, well maybe not taking down tents at 5am but practically every second! Acacia are a really good company, our truck seemed so much nicer than some others who didn't even have lockers inside the truck. I will be back to do the Kenya to Zanzibar leg of the trip at some point in the future and know I won't even bother looking at another company to do the trip! Read more

We booked our safari through Ker & Downey and we have been super impressed with the most perfect trip! We travelled to Botswana Linyanti region. It truly felt like an exclusive game viewing experience in absolute luxury. The staff were 5* and made us feel immediately at home. Biggest tip is spending a sunrise or sunset in their incredibly picturesque pool. Food matched the incredible surroundings and one of the most magical places we have ever stayed. Really wish we there still! Read more

We enjoyed the tour October 2017


Cape to Falls - 22 days

Long days as expected on the truck for the first week we weren't sure if this was the part of Africa we expected. It was mostly geology, which while interesting made everyone wonder when the animals and wilderness camping would start. After that it did start and was amazing and just got better each stop after Swakopmund. Amazing experences and close proximity to wildlife. We would have liked more nights of back country camping such as we had in the Okavango Delta and Chobe and thought most nights would have been in these type of locations rather than urban campgrounds. That said, it was a rewarding adventure with a great Crew of David, Ian and Munya. Read more

Wonderful Wildlife of Botswana August 2016


Wildlife & Wilderness of Botswana

This trip certainly delivered with regard to the quantity and quality of wildlife viewing with the help of the knowledgeable guides.
Being almost in touching distance of lions and leopards with their kills while they pretty much ignored us. And this in an open sided vehicle !

The leader was an excellent cook with good organisation. He also turned his hand to bush mechanic when the support truck needed repair.

There are long drives in open vehicles so be prepared for wind. Also there are times it is dangerous to leave the tent at night so be prepared for that too.
Travel light - you can get laundry done at Victoria Falls.

We may have been lucky with the amount of wildlife we saw but it made the trip well worth while.
The camp beds are pretty comfortable.
