Why Must You Visit Africa

Beautiful sunsets, wide savannah grasslands, rich biodiversity, amazing wildlife, spectacular mountains and beautiful vistas, Africa is one continent that has it all. The sheer diversity of Africa's cultural, ethnic and geographic landscape is simply staggering. Let’s explore the many reasons to visit Africa.



Unforgettable Safari experiences


With its stunning landscape and captivating wildlife, Africa is one of the top Continents in the world for wildlife viewing. A lot of people go to see the “Big Five”: lions, leopards, elephants, African buffalo and rhinos. You can catch them in action at Tanzania’s Serengeti, Kenya’s Masai Mara and South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Within Africa there are numerous countries that offer exceptional safari experiences. Botswana’s Okavango delta offers unparalleled water-based safari experience, while Uganda and Rwanda are the two countries in the world where you can see the wild mountains gorillas. Take a road trip to Lake Nakuru, covered with thousands of pink flamingoes or take a water safari at Okavango delta. The options are endless.


Pristine beaches


When we think beaches, we hardly think Africa. With 18950 miles of coastline, Africa has several incredible beach destinations. In fact, it is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy some of the best beaches in the world. From South Africa to Zanzibar, and Tanzania to Mozambique there are numerous beaches brimming with sparkling waters, and powdery sands. They offer the perfect escape after a week of Safari. The island of Seychelles with its endless white beaches, giant boulders and corals are popular for both honeymoon and family travel.

Natural wonders


From the hottest desert in the world to the greatest sheet of falling water in the world, Africa is the land of many wonders. Star gaze in Sahara Desert while on a trip to Morocco; admire the majestic Victoria falls in Zimbabwe; and float along the Okavango delta, one of the world’s richest and most bio diverse eco systems. The Ngorongoro crater in Tanzania is a world heritage site and home to more than 30,000 animals. It is the world’s largest inactive, unbroken and unfilled volcanic caldera. Picture yourself visiting this beautiful paradise, also known as Africa’s “Garden of Eden”.


Contrasting cities


Live it up in South Africa with its vineyards, cafés and cosmopolitan vibe. Cape town is the epitome of European chic in an African continent. In complete contrast, the enchanting city of Marrakesh in Morocco, with its colorful and heady souks filled with fragrant spices, multicolored rugs, antiques, lanterns, and silk kaftans, evokes a feeling of history and authenticity.


Different African cultures


The African cultures and customs are a big part of what makes Africa a unique continent. Home to an estimated 3000 tribes, each with its own distinct customs, traditions and languages, visiting a tribal village is the best way to interact and learn about their way of life. Some of the iconic tribes are Zulu which are Africa’s the largest tribe, Maasai are the warrior and semi-nomadic tribe in Kenya and Tanzania and the San are the oldest tribe in the world living in the East Kalahari. The San people are renowned for their excellent tracking skills and have developed skills to hunt and survive in the most barren desert land. The Tuareg are a tribe of Berber ethnicity and are a nomadic tribe occupying large parts of the Sahara Desert.

Glamping


One way you can add on to your wild life viewing experience in Africa is luxury glamping. It offers privacy, remoteness and aims to bring you closer to nature in a luxury setting, where the night sky is lit up with stars, in a vast African landscape. There is silence and calm in a more than comfortable setting.
