When Do You Want To Go?

Africa

Known for its outstanding wildlife, no trip to Africa would be complete without a Safari, and spotting those incredible “Big 5” – lions, leopards, buffaloes, elephants and rhinos – whether in Kenya’s famous Masai Mara or the stunning Serengeti or Ngorongoro Reserves in Tanzania, is truly the things dreams are made of. But this is just the start of the incredible sights and wonders that await on this truly spectacular continent…

There is the mighty Kilimanjaro, the exotic islands of Zanzibar, the extensive Lake Victoria and of course, the vast and powerful Victoria Falls straddling Zambia and Zimbabwe’s borders. There is the exceptional beauty of Namibia’s rippling desert dunes – the oldest and largest in the world, and Botswana’s resplendent and UNESCO recognised Okavango Delta, another of Africa’s best regions for wildlife spotting.

And then, of course, there is South Africa. With stunning beaches lapped by two oceans, rippling deserts, jagged mountains and desert-like star-studded skies it’s no wonder it is one of the most popular destinations on the continent. It's home to another top Safari destination thanks to the impeccable Kruger National Park, it is also home to the epic Kalahari Desert, the iconic Table Mountain, and the unmissable Garden Route – 200km of utterly spectacular coastline, taking you past lakes, lagoons, stunning beaches, rolling hills and striking mountains.

The perfect combination of culture, cuisine and landscapes makes Cape Town a city you’ll not want to leave. But just a little further afield and you can enjoy the spectacular Winelands, hopping on and off the wine tram in Franschhoek or sampling the joys of Stellenbosch enjoy a spot of prime whale watching in Hermanus, or visit the infamous Robben Island to learn more about the country’s famously troubled history.
