5 Days Mount Kenya Climbing safari
  1. Tropical beaches that rival some of the world’s best.

There are so many beaches in Africa that it is impossible to pick the greatest one. The beaches in Zanzibar, a small island off the coast of Dar es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania, would, nonetheless, be a top choice.

This tiny island is the ideal place to relax after a safari or climb Africa’s tallest peaks, Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya. It has pure azure waters, white coral sand, and plenty of diving and snorkeling options.

  1. Vibrant cities.

Ancient and modern towns coexist in harmony throughout Africa. Discover the crowded, mediaeval city of Marrakesh in Morocco, which was formerly a part of the Berber empire. As you peruse hundreds of elaborately hand-woven rugs from the diverse souks, you won’t be able to escape the thought of a magic carpet thanks to the maze of lanes and bustling markets that bring to mind Disney’s Aladdin.

In contrast, Cape Town, South Africa, is a contemporary, cosmopolitan city with a rich cultural history and a stunning coastline. The city is unquestionably stunning, both for its location next to Table Mountain, one of the new seven wonders of nature, and for its revitalization of industrial areas, Dutch, Malay, and British-influenced architecture, as well as historic structures.

  1. Geological wonders.

 Discover the tallest sand dunes in the world in the Namib Desert, the largest and most impressive waterfall in the world, Victoria Falls, in Zambia or Zimbabwe, and the lush aquatic environment of the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

Visit Fish River Canyon, the second-biggest river canyon in the world (after the Grand Canyon), or explore Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest unbroken, unflooded volcanic crater in the world.

The African continent offers a tremendous diversity of nature, culture, and adventure, making for genuinely remarkable encounters.

  1. Camping, glamping, and everything in between.

 Camping in Africa is a revitalizing safari experience that provides an intimate connection to the land, nature, and wildlife but not buffalo and lions, we’re talking about birds and beetles here.

The best thing about camping safari in Africa is that there are several levels of camping, so it’s not just bare-bones camping with a bush tent, although that is an option as well. Africa has it all, whether you’re eager to pitch a tent to get a true sense of the great outdoors, desire a little extra luxury, such as bush showers adjacent to your campsite and fully serviced camping, or high-end camping in lavish dome tents with full beds and an ensuite.

  1. Head to the waters for a different safari experience.

 Despite not being frequently linked with the country’s arid nature, there are thrilling water-based activities available, such as canoeing down the Manambolo River in Madagascar, which is teeming with rare birds, and exploring the Okavango Delta by mokoro. Through a limestone plateau, access the magnificent Manambolo Gorge, which is comparatively unexplored. It’s a fantastic alternative to a typical wildlife drive safari.

Africa provides all you need and more if your inner water-child asks for a vacation filled with aquatic sports.

  1. Its brimming full of big things.

Africa, the second-largest continent in the globe, is home to some of the biggest items on the planet:

  • The Sahara Desert, the largest desert in the world (learn more about it on our Morocco itinerary).
  • The Nile River, which is 6,853 kilometres (4,258 mi) long, is the world’s longest river.
  • The Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world (visit it on our Botswana itinerary).
  • Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest freestanding mountain in the world and one of the Seven Summits (climb it on one of our Kilimanjaro excursions).
  • The Namib Desert in Namibia, which is the oldest desert in the world (visit it on our Namibia travels).
  • Serengeti in Tanzania hosts the largest wildlife migration on Earth, with over 750,000 zebra leading 1.2 million wildebeest across this extraordinary environment (visit it on our Serengeti Explorer).
  • The African elephant, which may weigh up to seven tonnes, is the largest land animal still alive and resides there.
  • Four of the top five fastest land species can be found here, including the Thomson’s gazelle (around 50 mph), wildebeest, lion, and cheetah (70 mph).
  • It boasts more rock art locations than any other continent, making it home to the largest outdoor art collections in the world. The Sahara Desert, Namibia, Zimbabwe, the Kalahari, and Botswana have all seen significant amounts. Because they are located in isolated desert locations or are infrequently frequented by people, many, however, are still unexplored. The earliest art that has been discovered is thought to be between 27,000 and 40,000 years old, providing insight into the beliefs, way of life, and myths of the prehistoric people.
  1. Over 3000 fascinating tribes and cultures.

There are about 3000 tribes in Africa, and each one has a remarkably unique language, culture, and tradition. Some of the tribes are well-known, including the Zulu, which has 11 million members and is also Africa’s largest ethnic group; the Maasai, who have deeply ingrained traditions and culture and are well-known for leading a nomadic lifestyle and raising cattle; and the San and Batswana people of the Eastern Kalahari, who have a more than 20,000-year-old cultural heritage.

While there are many more, each has equally intriguing communities and traditions that will enthral the modern world for all time.
