In the words of Rudyard Kipling – “One cannot resist the lure of Africa.”
It’s a life changer. From the vibrant sunrises and sunsets to the passing parade of wildlife and the warmth of the people, a holiday in Africa will stay inside you forever.
Safari is Swahili for ‘to journey’ and this where most travellers to Africa start, especially to spot the Big Five (rhino, elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard). South and East Africa have amazing high-end how-on-earth-do-they-do it type of safari lodges that will virtually leave you spellbound. Seeing your first elephant or lion up close and personal is a moment to treasure.
Kenya and Tanzania are perfect for a front seat at ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’ – the wildebeest migration across the Mara River. You can take a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti, or if you’re born to the saddle how about a horse safari. Uganda and Rwanda are where you need to head to trek in search of the endangered mountain gorillas, Namibia is a great place for desert landscapes with big game and don’t miss Victoria Falls in Zambia and Table Mountain in Cape Town (not to mention Stellenbosch the renowned wine region on Cape Town’s doorstep).
Africa also has its share of incredible islands and beaches. Become a castaway in Zanzibar, the very name conjures up mystic or what about an uber-luxurious resort in the Seychelles or Madagascar.
Let Africa touch your soul.
