Name: René Neethling
Where are you from: Cape Town, South Africa
How long have you been working for Acacia: Recently joined Acacia Africa in the Operations Department.
What is your favorite Acacia tour, highlights and activities: KTA13 – from game viewing in the Masai Mara & Serengeti to the beaches of Zanzibar, this is definitely a great combination of experiences all rolled in to one! Game drives in the Serengeti & Ngorongoro… Love it!!
What is your favorite country and your top highlight of this country: If I had to choose, I’d say Namibia, just for its scenic beauty which is beyond comparison. Dune 45 at sunrise, challenging but so worthwhile as well as the guided walk in Sossusvlei… This place is absolutely amazing!
If you could choose a favorite activity and game park what would it be: Jumping out of a plane at 10000ft in Namibia
What are some of the common misconceptions about Africa that passengers have: There will be food, quite good food in fact and there will be shops to purchase anything from basic amenities to luxury items.
What travel tip would you give to first time overlander’s: Keep an open mind. This is an experience of a life time and probably the best way to experience Africa!
Where would you like to see Acacia travel to in the future and why: Mozambique… After only a brief visit to the country a while ago, I definitely would like to learn more and think it has potential to be a popular destination.
