“You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.” – Karen Blixen, Out of Africa
The continent where the first humans beings existed, Africa is a place with a strong cultural heritage, natural beauty, one-of-a-kind wildlife, exquisite coastline and a few hidden secrets.
Vast, wild and exciting, Africa offers visitors some of the best wildlife spotting in the world; from the famous big five – lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino – to gorillas in Rwanda and Uganda, from herds of migrating wildebeest to dancing lemurs in Madagascar.
It’s colourful, spiritual, and one of the only places where it is possible to spot herds of elephant from your front porch. This is Africa – we’ll help you get under its skin.
