The African continent is incredibly diverse, and each country has its own unique qualities. Often you hear the request “we want to travel to Africa”. The next question is to understand what that journey should be, to fulfill that dream, as the possibilities are endless.
I would love to have the opportunity to hear what your interests are so that we can collaborate and curate the journey of your dreams – be prepared though, that first trip to Africa, may result in many more as this Continent can certainly latch on to your heart and never let go.
These photos are just a few of the wild animals I have been fortunate to encounter, with some glimpses of life in rural southern Africa; be assured there are some wonderfully luxurious hotels and tented camps to ensure you have the best experience suited to you.
The Kigali Genocide Memorial in Rwanda may bring tears to your eyes as you read the vivid reports of the tragic 1994 massacre, but it shouldn’t be missed, particularly when combined with hiking into the Parc des Volcanoes and sitting amongst a family of Mountain Gorillas. With just 1004 remaining in the world, opportunities to see these incredible animals are carefully managed in both Rwanda and Uganda.
Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia
Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia all provide stunning safari experiences. The Great Migration in the Serengeti, a sun-rise balloon ride over the Maasai Mara, the sight of hundreds of thousands of pink flamingos taking off in flight from Lake Nakuru, and the frequent sight of a rainbow over Victoria Falls, are just a few of the priceless experiences available.
South Africa offers stunning scenery in Cape Town, vineyards producing some of the best wines in the world, the amazing landscapes in the Midlands Meander in KwaZulu-Natal, and of course the opportunity to enjoy luxurious tented camps from which to enjoy your safari of choice across several Provinces in South Africa.
The Zanzibar Archipelago
The Zanzibar Archipelago, located in the Indian Ocean 15 miles off the coast of Tanzania, is a breathtaking spot to escape from the world. You’ll enjoy clear, turquoise-blue water; shallow sandbars perfect for wading; and many small, nearly deserted islands virtually unvisited by tourists. You will also have the opportunity to experience the hustle and bustle of the Spice Markets of Zanzibar.
Morocco in the North Western part of the continent provides a very different experiences from the countries in Southern Africa. Here you can wander through kasbahs, spice markets, and cities pulsing with energy. Climb onto a camel and explore the edge of the Sahara before admiring the views from the heights of the Atlas Mountains.
Madagascar, just 250 miles off the East Africa coast in the Indian Ocean is known for it lemurs, with over 100 species, many of which are only found in Madagascar. Enjoy an active journey here hiking through the National Parks, strolling along the Avenue of the Boababs and then enjoy time relaxing on one of the beautiful beaches.
