Be a happy camper & catch the annual migration

Known as the “Seventh Wonder Of The World,” the annual migration has always been a wildlife high for safari-goers, but according to Acacia Africa, this year it’s going to be a sell-out event.

Heath Ashcroft, Marketing Director at Acacia Africa, comments: “Even Kenya’s Tourism minister, Najib Balala, has been turned away – the majority of hotels already being fully booked. While accommodation in the Mara is undoubtedly an issue, anyone thinking of heading overland will still be able to reserve a front row seat for the annual migration; in fact, as long as you’re a happy camper there’s absolutely no reason to change your plans.”

The tour operator has also guaranteed over 500 overland and small group safari departures from now until the end of the year, allowing adventurers to book with complete peace of mind.

Heath Ashcroft, comments: “When it comes to the annual migration the idea of having to switch to an alternative tour would be unthinkable. Of course, spotting the Big Five is a major draw card in Kenya, but from July to October it’s the country’s number one wildlife spectacle that tops the list.”

Acacia Africa’s 13-day Kenya & Tanzania Adventure includes game viewing in the Masai Mara and the Serengeti, the overland tour ending with a beach stay on Zanzibar. £595pp (no single supplement) + local payment from £332pp. Save 40% off the tour price if travelling in July (£238pp), 30% off the tour price if travelling in August (£178pp) and 20% if travelling in September or October (£119pp). Acacia Africa has guaranteed the following departures: 25 (July); 01, 08, 15, 22 (August); 05, 12, 19, 26 (September); 03, 10 (October).
