If Michelle Lewis, a.k.a. the Acacia Wild Bunch, was Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex In The City” her motto would probably be “single & adventurous” as opposed to ‘single & fabulous”. If you’re looking to bag an out there experience as opposed to Mr. Right this Valentines, here are five sensational singleton Africa pursuits.
Dune it! Forget about twelve red roses, get your heart pumping in Namibia’s Swakopmund and sand surf at speeds of up to 70 miles an hour! Head overland on the 19-day South West Safari £545pp + local payment from £256pp. Book during February and save 20% (£109pp) off the tour price.
Ditch Mr. Might Be, go it alone and “rap jump” at the Victoria Falls in Zambia. With no need for a significant other you can face the challenge head on and run solo down a 54-metre sheer cliff wall. Try the 21-day East African Explorer overland trip £745pp + local payment from £228pp. Book during February and save 20% (£149pp) off the tour price.
Who needs to cuddle up when you can get closer to the animal kingdom in the Serengeti. A 24/7 game viewing experience, singles can game drive in the early hours and catch the sights and sounds of Tanzania when night falls; the resident wildlife taking leisurely strolls through the campsite. Catch up with the Big Five on the 11-day Highlights Of Tanzania overland tour £495pp + local payment from £102pp. Book during February and save 20% (£99pp) off the tour price.
Why opt for candle lit dinners when you could be camping in the wilds of Africa and brushing up on your braai skills. According to one recent adventurer, overlanding grub is not concerned with roasting endless wieners on the fire - in fact, everything from stew to lasagna and even stir fry can be served up on the truck; and if you’re in Kenya it’s best washed down with a nice cold, aptly named Tusker beer. Go overland on the 31-day South East Adventure £1,095pp + local payment from £520pp. Book during February and save 20% (£219pp) off the tour price.
“Seeking partner with a fine tuned sensory system this Valentines”. If your pre Valentines speed dating was a wash out, Acacia Africa can always set up a cage dating session with the Great White, a sea dwelling creature who has a sixth sense. Extend your stay in Africa with a 3-day Cape Town Shark Dive extension from £225pp.
All overland prices (excluding Cape Town Shark Dive Extension) include transport, roads tolls and taxes, camping accommodation and cooking equipment, most meals and services of tour leader and driver. Excludes return international flight, visas, departure taxes, transfers and optional payment excursions.
