Africa

From the tip of Tunisia in the north to the Cape of Good Hope in the south, no place offers as much adventure, diversity and sheer wonder than Africa.

See nature's most majestic animals in their natural habitat on a safari through one of the many national parks, barter for a bargain in an Arabic souk, dive into the history surrounding things like apartheid and the diamond rush or relax on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You will be mesmerised by the wealth of experiences, the spirit of the people and the breath-taking natural wonders that a holiday to Africa has to offer.

As well as adventures on land, we can also offer cruises that visit an African port or two. You could even combine the two to create the ultimate African holiday.
