An astoundingly diverse continent showcasing varied landscapes from vast deserts, swathes of forest, sensational mountain ranges, and great lakes and powerful rivers, an abundance of wildlife, and a smorgasbord of peoples and cultures, each country in Africa has something unique and amazing to offer - from the mysterious ancient monuments of Egypt which have fascinated travellers for centuries, and the bustling souks and walled medinas of Morocco to the vast wilderness areas Tanzania and the Rainbow Nation of South Africa. Enjoy boat safaris in Botswana, gorilla trekking in Uganda, marvelling at the staggering Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, world-class scuba diving in Mozambique, meeting the indigenous Damara people in Namibia, admiring the great Lake Nakuru and bird-watching in Kenya, or exploring a hillside complex of royal palace and burial grounds in Madagascar.

Botswana

One of the most exclusive safari destinations in Africa, Botswana may be largely swathed in sandy valleys and the Kalahari Desert, but there are many pockets of land full to bursting with wildlife, while the Okavanga Delta becomes a lush animal habitat during seasonal floods, and the Chobe offers fantastic opportunities for boat safaris.

Kenya

A coastline on the Indian Ocean, a mixture of landscapes from savannah to lakelands and mountain highlands, as well as views of Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, Kenya is breath-takingly diverse, and rich with wildlife.

Mozambique

Boasting world-class angling and scuba-diving opportunities, truly tropical islands and pristine beaches stretching along a coastline on the Indian Ocean, Mozambique is a must for beach-lovers and diving enthusiasts.
#

Egypt

Egypt, an ancient land dating back millennia to the pharaohs, whose legacy still remains visible along the fertile Nile Valley River. While these ancient monuments are popular draws, there are also Ottoman landmarks to be admired in Cairo, as well as fabulous beach resorts, Nile cruises, and modern sporting activities to be enjoyed too. ​

Zimbabwe

For stunning views of Victoria Falls by foot or by helicopter, or for the thrill of white-water rafting or bungee jumping in Batoka Gorge, Zimbabwe is the place to go.
#

Namibia

One of Africa's hidden treasures, Namibia is an unique country of spectacularly crimson, undulating sand dunes and vast deserts, ancient basalt mountains decorated with rock art, and a strong German colonial influence in its capital, Windhoek, and the coastal town of Swakopmund.
#

South Africa

From the shrublands of Kruger National Park, home to Africa’s Big Five and more, the forests and lagoons of the Garden Route, and the lush Winelands to the wild beaches and rugged cliffs at the Cape of Good Hope, the historic battlefields and dramatic Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu-Natal, the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town beneath Table Mountain... South Africa is a treasure for travellers of all interests.
#

Tanzania

Best known for its vast wilderness areas, Tanzania is a must for nature lovers. The seemingly endless plains of Serengeti National Park are populated by the Big Five game, while chimpanzees can be found in Tanzania’s west across Lake Tanganyika in the luscious Mahale Mountains National Park. Tanzania is also home to Mount Kilimanjaro, and the tropical island of Zanzibar

#

Morocco

​From the peaks of the Atlas Mountains to vast desert dunes, walled medinas, bustling souks offering traditional ceramics and other goods, Morocco is a vibrantly diverse country, strongly influenced by Berber, European and Arabic cultures. Bordering both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, Morocco is blessed with miles of fantastic sandy-white beaches which attract surfers, sun-lovers and families.
#

Madagascar

The wealth of rainforests, beaches and reefs on this island off the southeast coast of Africa makes Madagascar an ideal home for thousands of unique animals, most famously lemur - while Madagascar itself remains a largely untouched gem.
#

Ethiopia

​Proclaimed the World's Best Tourist Destination in 2015 by the European Council on Tourism and Trade, Ethiopia is nonetheless a largely undiscovered gem! It's a treasure trove of ancient and tribal cultures - an entire smorgasbord of historic landmarks and fascinating tribes in the lowlands of the southwest - and a country of astounding landscapes: dramatic mountains, the remote, harsh and remarkably unique Dallol Depression, desert-like wilderness, vast lakes, and the birthplace of the Blue Nile. ​
#

Zambia

As one of Africa's undiscovered treasures, a Zambian adventure will be all the more special and memorable - whether taking in the spectacle of the Victoria Falls off the beaten track, experiencing a walking safari, or simply exploring one of Africa's most pristine and unspoilt wildlife havens.

Rwanda

​One of Africa's smallest and most beautiful countries, Rwanda is synonymous with gorillas; it's an absolute 'must' for any wildlife enthusiast. Home to the world's last remaining mountain gorillas, and the rare and playful golden monkeys, Rwanda is primate capital, with the Volcanoes National Park the jewel in its crown.
