Africa is a place of superlatives. Thought to be the heartland of humanity, where human evolution likely took place millions of years ago, it covers four hemispheres and is now home to more than a billion people. It is arguably the most interesting and diverse continent on the earth, home to an incredible variety of people, animals, climates and spectacular places.
Africa is compelling and intriguing; from the Great Pyramids to the savannahs of the Serengeti. You can hot-air balloon over the plains, cruise the River Nile and game drive in legendary game reserves. Comprised of desert, tropical, savanna grasslands, jungle and even subarctic climates, you can trek to the home of the famous mountain gorillas, spot ‘the Big Five’, relax on a white sandy beach or even take up the challenge of white water rafting.
From the Cape of Good Hope to Victoria Falls, from Cameroon in West Africa to Kenya in East Africa, no other continent offers the same opportunities to see such diverse wildlife, scenery, culture and history as Africa does.
