Holidays in Africa
Africa is vast and there’s so much to see. Tailor make your trip and combine destinations for an unforgettable holiday to this enchanting continent.
The very nature of Africa – diverse landscapes from charming cities to wide-open wildernesses, modes of travel including road, rail and light aircraft, and a huge choice of places to stay – means that it’s perfect for a tailor-made holiday. We can help you create a personalised itinerary that’s right for you as well as recommend excursions and extensions.
Africa is perhaps surprisingly well connected, with a number of direct flights operating within and between countries. It’s the ultimate destination for a safari-and-beach holiday, with the exotic shores of Zanzibar, Mauritius and the Seychelles offering the perfect end to an action-packed adventure. Or if you’re all about the wildlife, combine a more traditional Kenya or Tanzania safari with the ultimate off-the-beaten-track wildlife experience: gorilla trekking in Rwanda. In Southern Africa, the landscapes of neighbouring countries couldn’t be more different. Pair Botswana’s waterways with the dramatic Victoria Falls − on either the Zambian or Zimbabwean side − or discover the diversity of South Africa’s game reserves, Winelands and world-class cities before flopping on a white-sand beach in Mozambique.
