Africa tailor-made holidays
With its sweeping landscapes, iconic wildlife and unique cultures, a holiday to Africa serves up a rich blend of travel experiences unlike anywhere else on earth.
From the cultured northern countries of Egypt and Morocco, with their Mediterranean heritage and association with the desert, to the wildlife reserves and safari holidays of Kenya and Tanzania, with their open savannahs and celebrated national parks such as the Masai Mara and Serengeti, the mysterious west African countries such as Ghana that so often escape peoples' attention and destinations such as Botswana, Namibia and South Africa at the foot of the continent with their contrasting environments and exceptional game reserves including the Kruger National Park and the Okavango Delta, the continent swarms with life and reasons to visit.
