When it comes to exotic travel, it’s hard to top our Africa tours. It would be hard to quarrel about Africa being the most exotic travel destination on the planet. With much of Africa being less developed, our Africa tours are the ideal way to see this continent, as the travel infrastructure is not nearly as developed as other continents.
.
Our tours of Africa take care of all the details, so you can focus on enjoying yourself and the fascinating sites and experiences. Whether you’re fascinated by African culture, or have a yearning to see the iconic wildlife of the African continent, a tour of Africa will be one you will remember forever. Are you thinking of travelling to Africa to see the Big 5? If you’re not familiar with the term, the Big Five game animals in Africa are the lion, rhinoceros, leopard, Cape Buffalo and elephant. The term had been coined by big game hunters, but we only hunt with our cameras!
.
In addition to the Big 5, other iconic African wildlife includes giraffes, hippos, zebra, hyenas, gorillas, chimpanzees and crocodiles, just to name a few. It’s one thing to see African wildlife on TV, but nothing compares to seeing these fascinating animals in person! There is so much to see and do in Africa, it’s not all about the animals. Some of mankinds greatest creations can be found in Egypt, in the northeastern part of Africa. From the Sphinx and Great Pyramids, to the Aswan High Dam, Egypt also has a lot to offer. Maybe you’d like to see the truly spectacular Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe? The Great Rift Valley? The real problem is where to go first! So, check out our Africa travel blog posts for inspiration!
