The sheer scale of Africa is the first thing that strikes you. The immensity of Africa’s deserts, savannah and rainforests, its endless horizons and diverse wildlife. Africa’s dizzying sights, sounds, smells and colors surround you the moment you arrive on your Africa adventure vacation.
Africa is best known for its wildlife. Home to the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros), Africa boasts some of the world's greatest wildlife reserves, including the Serengeti, Etosha, Ngorongoro, Chobe, and Kruger national parks. Join one of our Africa wildlife safari tours for a chance to spot some, or maybe all, of these iconic creatures in their natural habitat. You can also find gorilla and chimp foraging in the lush mountains of Uganda or immerse yourself in exotic wildlife on the ‘The Lost Continent’ of Madagascar.
Africa also offers a wide variety of challenging walks and hikes. Trek into the spectacular Atlas Mountains of Morocco to summit Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa, tick the colossal Kilimanjaro off your bucket list or head beyond the beaten track with a hike into the lush green Simien Mountains of Ethiopia.
For a more cultural African experience, book a trip to Morocco. Meander through a maze of bustling souks and ride on camel-back through the Sahara. Alternatively, head to Ghana to meet local tribespeople and explore their mudhouse villages, and book a trip to Benin to discover a country barely touched by the outside world. Or for a once-in-a-lifetime iconic road trip, travel along the South Africa Garden Route to watch the sun rise over Table Mountain and spot penguin at Stony Point.

Africa is probably best known for its wildlife. It is home to the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros) as well as a host of other wildlife. Some of the world's greatest wildlife reserves, including the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, the Maasai Mara, Moremi, Chobe, the Kalahari and the Kruger, can be found in eastern and southern Africa. As if mainland Africa wasn't enough for wildlife-lovers, off the south-eastern coast lies the remarkable island of Madagascar, home to some of the planet's most unusual species. A wildlife safari in Africa is an experience second to none, whether you're observing the wildlife on foot, by four-wheel-drive or from a boat.
A rich tapestry of cultures and tribes has evolved throughout the continent: there are dozens of ethnic groups each with their own customs, traditions and language. No visit to Africa is complete without meeting its people and witnessing first-hand the extraordinary wealth of the culture, from the Berbers and Tuareg of the north to the Maasai in the east and the Zulus and San Bushmen in the south. Africa's diversity of music, dance, art, architecture, clothing, religions, traditions and beliefs is truly amazing.
