Unspoiled beauty and wildlife safaris

From the mesmerising shores of Tanzania to thundering Victoria Falls in Zambia, the beaches of South Africa's Garden Route to the magnificent vistas of Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa is a continent that will provide a variety of fantastic experiences and stunning scenery. We love Africa's raw, unspoiled beauty and easy access to wildlife safaris. Watch the wildebeest migration in Kenya, go on safari in South Africa's Kruger National Park, or take an elephant safari in Zambia. A holiday in Africa is fascinating, enlightening, and surprising.   

Things to do

Highlights of Africa

Wildlife Safaris

The wildlife safaris of Africa are as diverse and extensive as this magnificent continent. We love getting closer to nature at Kariega Game Reserve and discovering the wild side of South Africa in true luxury at Pumba Game Reserve. On the Cape Whale Coast, head for Grootbos Nature Reserve to experience the thrill of shark cage diving and see pods of dolphins or watch whales breaching the water. The Rufiji River in Tanzania's Selous Game Reserve is filled with slick-skinned hippos, huge, knobbly-skinned crocodiles, and herds of stamping buffalo. Keep your binoculars ready throughout the open savannahs of Masai Mara in Kenya to see lions hunting zebras or the thrilling chase of hyenas pursuing wildebeest. 

Captivating Cities

The cities of Africa are a surprising blend of modernism and age-old culture. For perfect relaxation on the powdery shores and warm, blue waters head to dazzling Zanzibar in Tanzania. Watamu in Kenya has three spectacular reef-protected lagoons and a stunning coral garden to explore. For a bit more culture head to the spice-scented streets of Mombasa, where you can wander past Swahili, African, Arabic, and European-influenced architecture. The picture-perfect location of Cape Town is ideally placed to show you the culture and history of South Africa. Or head to Nairobi, Kenya, to see wildlife just outside the city at Nairobi National Park.
