Acacia Africa

Acacia Africa asks agents to support its green message

In line with the Tanzanian government's decision of banning plastic bags (as of June 1), Acacia Africa has signed up to help their local suppliers in a bid to limit the number of single use plastic bottles.

The Serengeti & Ngorongoro safari vehicles used by the tour operator are being fitted with new 20-litre water dispensers, each one filled with safe potable drinking water from Arusha. 

Now, Acacia is asking agents to spread the message and urge travellers coming to Tanzania, to bring along their own refillable water bottles instead of buying plastic bottles locally. 

Arno Delport, sales and marketing manager at the safari specialist, said: "If we have 100% of clients refilling, it will significantly reduce the use of waste - our combined efforts putting an end to plastic pollution."

The safari specialist is also suggesting travellers coming to Tanzania to share bott-flies from their tour with the hashtag #Bringyourbottle to encourage other clients to do the same.

A 20% discount is on offer currently for Tanzania focussed tours including the 11-day Highlights of Tanzania. The itinerary features game drives in the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, and a beach stay on the island of Zanzibar. Pricing starts from £1,052 per person based on two sharing plus Adventure Pass from £700 per person including transport, camping accommodation, most meals, services of a tour leader/driver. Bookings must be made before June 30 for July 1 - July 29 departures.
