Africa is home to a diverse collection of exciting holiday destinations. From the wildlife safaris of the East to the cultural sights of the West, and from the deserts of the North to the idyllic beaches and big cities of the South, Africa is an unforgettable continent just waiting to be explored.

This vast and varied continent has something to offer everyone. Arguably the most popular holiday destinations are centred around the wildlife rich game reserves of East Africa. Kenya and Tanzania have over 40 game parks including the famous Masai Mara and Ngorongoro Crater National Parks, along with many miles of beautiful coastline dotted with luxury beach resorts. West Africa has a uniquely different culture both rich and colourful including vibrant French-speaking Senegal, and Gambia - a birdwatchers paradise. The sandy deserts and Berber dominated mountains of Morocco in the North offer another, Arabic dominated side of Africa, along with Libya and Tunisia. For a more cosmopolitan side to Africa a visit to one of South Africa's modern bustling cities is a must. Combined with its great natural beauty and varied sporting and adventure activities it makes the perfect destination for a truly memorable holiday.
