Africa

Africa tailor-made holidays

Overview

Africa is the archetypal travel destination and Africa holidays often appear high on people's wish lists as they go in search of dramatic, raw travel experiences.

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.

Alternatively, take to the Indian Ocean islands, including Zanzibar, to relax in style, or explore Madagascar, the 'Eighth Continent', for an insight into a world that developed in isolation.
