Tour Africa in an unforgettable adventure

27 September 2017

Africa has it all—from beach holidays, safaris and urban adventures, to cultural and historical experiences that will leave you feeling enriched. There are so many incredible things to try out in Africa with that, figuring out where to stay, where to go and how to get there can be a mammoth task. That’s where we come in. Our combination of amazing travel experts and Africa and Middle East Tour operators will ensure that you get the most out of your trip in one of the most beautiful continents in the world.

Why a tour to Africa should be on your Bucket List

Many of our Africa Tours have amazing Bucket List inclusions such as God’s Window, Victoria Falls, Chobe River, Mosi Oa Tunya National Park and more. On top of these world-famous sites is the fact that Africa is one of the few places in the world where you can spend your morning on the beach and your afternoon on a game drive, depending on where you are. Other Bucket List-worthy attractions in Africa include the Big Five, the Serengeti, Cango Caves, Mount Kilimanjaro the Okavango Delta and more. It is impossible to tour Africa without seeing some of the world’s most sought-after sites.

Where to go in Africa

Talk about a loaded topic. Where to go in Africa is entirely dependent on which region in Africa you have decided you would like to go, and the kinds of things you’d like to see and do on your trip. Fortunately, our Africa Tours often incorporate many different destinations into the trip and ensure that tourists are spoilt for choice when it comes to the question of where they will be going—a seven day Africa Tour could include as many as eight stops depending on the itinerary. For example, God’s Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes, Hluhluwe Game Reserve, Kruger National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, Ngwenya glass factory, a stop by Swaziland Village and a St Lucia boat cruise are all par for the course on the Topdeck: Kruger, Swazi & Beach Tour (and that’s just one of many tours on offer).

What you can see and do

Game drives are a must for anyone travelling in and around Africa, even if you’ve been on one before. The beauty of a game drive is that no two are the same, and you never know what phenomenal sight you could be missing out on if you choose to give one a miss in favour of an afternoon nap. Just as it has diverse landscapes and animals, Africa is also rich in culture and history, which means a stop by traditional African villages and a trip to local, historical museums will see you walking away a lot wiser. Africa is so much more that how it is depicted in movies, and there is nothing more exciting than coming to realise this one on your own. On top of all the beautiful places to see and visit, there is an endless selection of activities to partake in. Canopy tours, bungee jumping, kitesurfing and shark-cage diving are just some of the adrenaline-fuelled activities you can cross off on the list of extreme things to try out in your lifetime. There are more low-key pastimes, such as bird-watching, fishing, sunset cruises and more. It just depends which part of Africa you’re in and how much of an adventure you’re willing to have.
