Africa

Africa, the world’s second largest continent, is made up of 54 recognized countries and the largest populations of wild animals. In Africa you can track the Big Five - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros - as well as hundreds of different species including giraffe, hippos, hyena, zebra and countless others. Not only great for game viewing, Africa is a continent that is rich in history, a perfect place for a culturally enlightening travel experience.

For most people, Africa evokes images of sun-drenched plains, nomadic tribes, and vast game parks, and though all of this is present, Africa offers visitors more than just safaris and sunsets. Exceptional sailing and scuba diving awaits you on the east coast and if you like breathtaking views with your adventure, then Mount Kilimanjaro is for you. Cape Town is a prime shopping destination where you can buy everything from crocodile teeth to gold bracelets, and if you are interested in seeing other people's riches, then a trip to the Egyptian Pyramids will put a sparkle in your eye. Africa will surprise you with its wealth of experiences and although you may come for its beasts, you will stay for its beauty.

Alongside the incredible experiences are luxury accommodations throughout all of Africa. Unique and incredible game lodges are nestled deep within national game reserves combining authentic safari experiences coupled with ultimate luxury.
