Escorted Tours to Africa
Africa is an enticing continent, and once you’ve visited you’ll find that you are drawn back time and again. Thrilling adventures are the norm here, in particular if you’re an animal-lover, so on a holiday to Africa get ready to notch up plenty of wildlife spots. Head east for a tour of Kenya, where one of the most famous game reserves is the Masai Mara. This is home to the ‘Big Five’ – that’s lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, rhino and leopard – as well as loads of other species from cute-looking meerkats to enormous ostriches. Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park is another top safari destination. And together they form the stage for the annual Great Migration when hundreds of thousands of animals make the hazardous journey between the two on a quest for fresh pastures. A stone’s throw from Tanzania is the paradise island of Zanzibar. This is the ideal location in which to linger on a white-sand beach and ease yourself into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
Another ultimate destination when deciding upon a holiday to Africa has to be South Africa, the Rainbow Nation, which was divided for many years by the system of apartheid. Names like Kruger National Park, Table Mountain and Stellenbosch tumble off the tongue, and all are accessible on a tour of South Africa. While you’re in this neck of the woods, a visit to Zambia makes perfect sense, too. Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River are wonderful natural attractions to rival anything you’ve seen so far.
