A Quick Guide To Africa

Vast, wild and unpredictable, Africa has always had a rugged mystique, enticing travellers to its tropical jungles, game-rich savannah lands, exquisite beaches and undulating deserts. For many years the continent was ravaged by war and unrest – between indigenous people and colonial powers, as well as internal factions – and there are still certain parts of Africa that are considered no-go zones, but many previously hostile regions have settled into peace and opened up to tourism, providing a brand new set of adventures for the intrepid tourist. From the beaches of Cape Town to the historical ruins of Great Zimbabwe, and the plains of the Serengeti to the coral gardens of the Egyptian coast, Africa offers some of the most striking scenic, natural and cultural attractions in the world.

Track the ’Big 5’ in some of the continent’s fabulous game parks: the vast game-filled plains of Tanzania’s haunting Serengeti, the Hluhluwe Game Reserve in South Africa, or perhaps Kenya’s Shaba Game Reserve, still renowned for its links with the ‘Born Free’ lioness, Elsa.


Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant & Buffalo

These animals got their name as they were considered the most difficult and dangerous to hunt. Although the ‘Big 5’ can be seen in most reserves and national parks, it is never guaranteed, after all, you are in the wild! Remember, it’s not just the ‘Big 5’ that makes you safari experience; it could be the numerous other animals, bird life, insects, vegetation, breath-taking scenery and the overwhelming feeling of returning to the wilderness.


  • Masai Mara in Kenya – the sheer scale of this game reserve is breath-taking.
  • Sunrise from Kilimanjaro’s Uhuru peak, the highest point in Africa.
  • Water-based game viewing from aboard a Chobe river cruise, Botswana.
  • The thundering waters of Victoria Falls, one of the seven wonders of the natural world.
  • Picnic lunch by a hippo pool in the lush surrounds of Ngorongoro crater in Tanzania.
  • Cape Town – one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
