Experience the people, natural beauty, and wildlife of Africa.
While the first activity most people associate with Africa is the safari, there are endless possibilities for adventure.
Shopping for crafts in local markets, venturing into the Sahara with a Tuareg caravan, visiting pygmy villages, hiking through the jungle to watch gorillas, relaxing on tropical islands in the Indian Ocean, snacking on exotic treats, traveling down a river in a dugout “pirogue”, traveling across the savannah on a colonial-era railway-the list of amazing experiences never ends!
Africa is a very diverse continent, with each country, or even each part of a country having its own unique culture. While it is common for people in the West to refer to Africa as if it were a single country, one should remember the sheer size of the continent, and that Africa is not one country but 54 different countries, meaning that it is impossible to make generalizations of Africa as a whole.
Did you know:
- Nairobi is the only city in the world that is gazed upon by zebra, lion and rhino — in the wild. Nairobi National Park was established in 1946 long before the city burst its seams. Located just 7km from the city center, it is home to black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elands, hippo and more than 400 species of birds. Find out from us where to stay and how to include the National Park in your itinerary.
- A mokoro is a traditional canoe used to navigate the shallow waters of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. If you’re on safari in Botswana we won’t let you miss out on this option offered by many lodges and camps in the area. While you may not see as much wildlife while poling your way through the “hippo-highways”, the tranquility and beauty of the Delta is best to be appreciated from the water.
- Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park is where the majority of the great annual migration takes place, and where you have a good chance of seeing over a million wildebeest, zebra and impala make their circular pilgrimage, in search of good grazing. But given that they cover over 5,000 miles you really have to know where to go and when!
