Avon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 11, 2009 -- Heath Ashcroft, Marketing Director for Acacia Adventure Holidays, comments: âCamping is not all rough and ready. Our four-day Call Of The Kruger Small Group Safari includes two full days of game viewing in the national park and the campsite comes with a pool, shop, restaurant and bar. The accommodation is close to the perimeter fences and itâs not unusual to hear the roar of a lion at night or chance upon a spotted genet at the evening barbeque. If youâre looking for somewhere otherworldly thereâs always Spitzkoppe in the heart of Namibia. The dramatic red rock landscape is ideal for a little impromptu âbouldering and travellers can camp out under the stars.â
Part of Acacia Adventure Holidaysâ recent questionnaire also focused on the best campsite experiences:

Best for getting off the beaten track: Wooden wind chimes are accompanied by rhythmic music, the ambient sounds drifting out across the Zambezi.

Best for wildlife action: In Etosha, adventurers can carry on wildlife viewing back at camp as the site is famous for its floodlit waterholes.
