Why go to Africa?
Home to some of the most diverse wildlife preserves on earth, teeming with activity, it is little wonder that enthusiasts come time and time again to witness Africa’s most captivating animal spectacles.
Here, the checklist of spine-tingling experiences is endless. Watch the might and energy of the biggest migration on earth throughout Kenya and Tanzania. Track endangered gorillas
in the atmospheric mountain ranges found in Rwanda and Uganda, or the bai’s of the Congo and Central African Republic. Track rhino on foot in Namibia, or indulge in an exhilarating walking safari in Zambia or Zimbabwe. 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.
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.
Whatever your focus, Africa puts you in the heart of where the planet’s most magnificent and gracious animals roam freely and elegantly in their natural habitat.
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.
