London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 11, 2009 -- Real adventurers are always in search of the next off the beaten track location. So whereâs the next hot spot for true explorers?
South Africa might be an unlikely candidate, however, Acacia Africa has incorporated several of the countryâs lesser-known locations in its new brochure, along with some hidden treasures including, the landlocked kingdoms of Lesotho and Swaziland. Spurred on by news of the cross party power sharing agreement the tour operator has also decided to incorporate a Zimbabwe based small group safari in the portfolio.
The launch of the new brochure ties in with Acacia Africaâs âGo Wild Onlineâ campaign, which will run from now through to the end of March 2010.
Heath Ashcroft, Marketing Director at Acacia Africa, comments: âOur new brochure offers some truly wild pursuits, challenging terrain and emotive experiences. Whether adventurers are pony trekking through remote Lesotho, swimming with elephants at the Antelope Private Game Reserve in Zimbabwe, volunteering at the âRace Against Extinction Projectâ in South Africa or animal tracking on foot in Swazilandâs Milwane Wildlife Sanctuary â we can promise an unforgettable African adventure. Our âGo Wild Onlineâ campaign will take these and other novel experiences into the virtual world, allowing adventurers to research, converse and actively participate with other Africa fans on Facebook, Twitter and our blog. Travellers can even journey with us online when they book â as our new online reservations system is up and running.â
The 7-day Rediscover Zimbabwe itinerary is aptly titled; and even if youâve seen the Victoria Falls, the tripâs starting point, itâs a well-known fact that they are best viewed from the Zimbabwean side. Safari central, the Hwange National Park is said to house the largest number of wildlife in southern Africa and the location is ideal for animal fanatics, as a visit to the Wild Dog Project is included in the experience. Bush walks to view rhino and antelope are available in Matopos National Park, adventurers opting to walk with lions and swim with elephants in the Antelope Private Game Reserve. Â£475pp + local payment from Â£182pp. Accommodation: two person tents in designated campsites with shared facilities (6nts.)
