Africa holidays are an unforgettable experience, from the fascinating Islamic culture and spectacular Egyptian ruins in the north to the inspiring landscapes and breathtaking wildlife you'll encounter further south.
North of the Sahara desert, the distinctive call to prayer rings out from minarets in Islamic countries stretching from the more liberal Morocco and Tunisia to the shores of the Red Sea. Egypt is the star attraction here thanks to the world-famous Pyramids and the Sphinx, but sites such as Luxor, Abu Simbel and the Valley of the Kings are every bit as remarkable.
Kenya, South Africa and Namibia are the most popular countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Cape Town is perhaps the pick of the cities. But for many visitors, the biggest attractions are the epic scenery and the chance to see wonderful animals such as lion, giraffe, elephant, rhino and buffalo in their habitats.
