Why go to Africa?

  • Wildlife

    Here, the checklist of spine-tingling experiences is endless. Many first-timers will be keen to cover classic game and the famous ‘Big Five’, whilst return visitors may be looking for a specific tour or activity to bring them face-to-face with their favourite animals. Watch the might and energy of the biggest migration on earth through Kenya’s Masai Mara and the Serengeti in Tanzania. Track endangered mountain gorillas in the atmospheric mountain ranges found in Rwanda and Uganda. Track rhino on foot in Namibia, or indulge in an exhilarating walking safari in Zambia or Zimbabwe. Come face to face with meerkats in Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans or a leopard lingering in the branches above you in the world-renowned Kruger. Listen to the distant roar of a lion as you relax with a cocktail by your private pool as the sun sets behind you. Perhaps track myriad of friendly looking lemur species throughout the incredible ‘Red Island’ of Madagascar, itself filled with endemic and curious species.

  • Heritage

    Unsurprisingly for what is the birthplace of the human species, there is a rich cultural heritage which is evidenced throughout the people you will encounter, from vibrantly adorned tribes people whose customs and values remain largely unchanged in the modern world, to Arabic and European descendants in cosmopolitan cities and carefree paradise island inhabitants. This creates a unique melting pot with fascinating experiences for the traveller seeking the real Africa and Indian Ocean, celebrated through lively festivals, events and everyday interactions.


    Africa is a fascinating melting pot of cultures and experiences.

  • Adrenaline

    Africa can also thrill as much as she can impress. Be it flying over the breathtaking Victoria Falls in a micro-light plane, soaring over the oldest desert in the world in Namibia or ascending the challenging 20,000 ft Mount Kilimanjaro, there is no shortage of adrenaline flow. The Indian Ocean too is home to some of the most exhilarating diving and snorkelling in its crystalline waters. However, when it is time to relax, the luxurious sophistication of the lodges, camps, and villas on offer ensures you can unwind and embrace the silence of the savannahs, deserts, plains and beaches that surround you.

    Africa is home to some highly exciting activities, from bungee jumping and rafting, to walking safaris in the wild national parks.
