My husband and I are in our early 30s and joined Acacia Africa in February in Nairobi for the ‘28 days overland experience’. The correspondence from Acacia in the run up to the trip was great and we had a good idea of what to expect. Our guide met us at the hotel the day before the trip as planned and we had no problems meeting up with the group the next day. Everything about the trip went brilliantly. Our trip went back on itself a fair bit, in order to fit in both the Maasai Mara and Serengeti NPs and to pick up/drop off people doing smaller parts of the big trip in Nairobi – we were in Nairobi three times in our 28 day trip. However, it was worth it as it was good to meet new people – it was just a shame that the Nairobi campsite was our least favourite (although it had the best wifi we found in Africa!) Our guide Maya and driver Masai were incredibly knowledgeable and were both amazing cooks as well, treating our small group to their tasty home cooking. I went overlanding in Africa fully expecting to be on ‘Africa time’ – but we were very rarely delayed and managed to have time to do all of the activities we had picked this trip to do. That said, the traffic in Kampala is the worst I have ever experienced! Our guides stopped along the way to buy local produce from people selling on the road which we fully supported and felt we were properly supporting the local population during the trip. It was a very cost-efficient trip leaving lots of cash over for the activities. My advice to anyone booking is to do as much as you can afford to do! We decided early on what activities we would focus on (nature and landscape and cultural history) and we weren’t short of things to do. There were too many highlights to list – and the guides and drivers were good at providing advice as well. The wildlife encounters on the trip were phenomenal – we spent the whole time thinking we were on a David Attenborough show! This trip truly shows Africa at its very best.
