Acacia Adventure Holidays will be running a Big Five Flash Sale on Friday 14 August, lasting for exactly five hours. The term “Big Five,” was coined by the big game hunters themselves – these predators being the hardest to hunt on foot. According to the tour operator, the Big Five are not a guarantee for safari goers either, but they continue to be the main exotic draw for adventurers.
The Big Five Flash Sale, which will run from 12pm to 5pm, will feature all of the tour operator’s overland tours at a 25% discount.
“Andy, the great outdoorsman from the veldt,” a larger than life character appearing on the tour operators blog (africastuckonyou.blogspot.com/), will also providing live commentary from outside the Acacia office and engaging with Acacia Adventure Holidays’ “tweeps” (or twitter fans) on the day of the Big Five Flash Sale.
In addition, there will be ongoing updates on the best place to catch up with these predators on the tour operator’s Twitter page before the sale begins (twitter.com/AcaciaAfrica).
Adventurers are advised to get in quick as discounts will be treated on a first past the post basis and Acacia is advising its customers to email firstname.lastname@example.org, due to the huge influx of calls it is expecting to receive over the course of the five hour flash sale.
Heath Ashcroft, Marketing Director at Acacia Adventure Holidays, comments: “On my last trip we were treated to the sight of one of the more elusive Big Five, the leopard. As the September rains fell in the Serengeti, we watched the leopard bounding away to the safety of a nearby kopjie dragging its prey behind it. Nothing is guaranteed on an African safari, and we’re hoping that the same sense of excitement which hits game viewers when they catch sight of these amazing predators, will be captured in a our Big Five Flash Sale – a heavy online presence driving the buzz.”
