Avon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 11, 2009 -- âAfrica: Stuck On Youâ (africastuckonyou.blogspot.com) is a new blog being rolled out by Acacia Adventure Holidays.
Heath Ashcroft, Marketing Director comments: âMost people dream about travelling to an exotic continent like Africa, but the main issue for adventurers is usually "where" to pitch the tent. The choices are endless, but we can promise once youâve set foot on either the plains of the Mara or the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, youâll be hooked. Our new blog, âAfrica: Stuck On Youâ is a fresh virtual guide that will help you pinpoint your dream spot on the continent.â
However, this isnât simply another blog being added to the endless mass of travel related content â âAfrica: Stuck on you,â is hoping to offer a deeper less commercial insight to potential travellers. Two larger than life characters will be making regular appearances â adding a human element to the blog. âAndy, the great outdoorsman from the Veldt,â a laid back adventurer who is crashing on the continent and Amelia Smith, a âBridget jones-esque singleâ with an unrivalled passion for Africa are alter egos representing the expert knowledge of the Acacia team.
There will also be excerpts from case studies and local points of interest backed by the usual deals, tour information and news that is more common to branded blogs.
Heath Ashcroft, comments: âOur new website (www.acacia-africa.com) already features detailed itineraries and dossiers and we didnât want our blog to be a mirror image. Instead âAfrica: Stuck On Youâ is similar to a virtual branded magazine which adventurers can dip into when they are fine-tuning their travel plans. We'll also be looking for comment from key Africa travel bloggers, clients out on tour or those who have recently returned - in fact, anyone who has something useful to say about travelling in Africa. For example, the 43-day Kenya to Cape Town âoverland tour,â will be coming live and direct from Dan, âOur Man In Africaâ in August. You can check out Danâs blog and his Acacia itinerary at: http://www.dansadventure.co.uk. In a way weâre looking to create a virtual map of the destinations we cover by tying local points of interest and experiences to our 150-strong list of itineraries. Our team will also be working closely with our tour leaders on the ground to make sure the information is current.â
