Africa Adventure Holidays

Africa is an against the odds story of survival that will warm your heart. This continent of contrasts combines unrivalled wildlife, rich jungle, deserts, snow-capped mountains and stunning coast  to form one of the world’s most endearing lands.     

Take a Kenyan safari, or experience the hustle and bustle of Nairobi while immersing yourself in the Maasai tribal way of life. Conquer Africa's highest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro, enjoying a host of adventures and discoveries along the way; pushing yourself to the very limit.

Watch wildebeest migrate across the Serengeti, track chimpanzees in Uganda or come face to face with a mountain gorilla in Rwanda; the opportunities to marvel at nature are endless.

Pole your way through Botswana’s Okavango Delta, go tracking with the bushmen in Namibia and chill out on the shores of Lake Malawi.

Travel to Cape Town, swim near the gushing Victoria Falls, explore ancient Zimbabwean ruins, or camp on beautiful beaches of Zanzibar in Tanzania. Immerse yourself in a thriving music culture, chew into some of the world’s wildest meats and dance the night away with village tribes; this incredible continent is like nothing you have seen before.
