Africa is a continent of life-changing experiences, played out against a backdrop of awe-inspiring landscapes and fantastically diverse cultures and traditions. Wildlife is the number one reason why most travellers come to Africa, whether it’s the thrill of a South African safari or an up-close encounter with the gorillas of Uganda. Dynamic cities like Cape Town and Dar Es Salaam symbolise the modern face of Africa, but there are still many regions where people live a deeply traditional way of life, with fascinating tribal customs, costumes and beliefs. And the continent is fringed by spectacular and mostly unspoilt coastline, with beautiful islands such as Zanzibar and Madagascar just offshore.
South Africa is the perfect introduction to the continent, home to many of its top safari parks, as well as cultured cities and world class wine regions. The Great Migration across the Serengeti and the Masai Mara is the main draw for visitors to Tanzania and Kenya, while the wetlands of the Okavango Delta offer a different perspective on the continent’s varied wildlife. Africa’s iconic landscapes are too numerous to list here, but highlights include Victoria Falls, the Great Rift Valley and towering Mount Kilimanjaro. The north of the continent is dominated by the arid expanse of the Sahara Desert, while to the south you’ll find the Kalahari and the rust-red dunes of Namibia. Africa is also littered with the artefacts of great civilisations, including the fascinating rock churches of Ethiopia, the pyramids of Egypt and the legendary city of Timbuktu.
