Africa. Just the sound of the word conjures up images of wild places teeming with wildlife and huge open plains. Wildlife encounters with large game such as the Big Five - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo - are enough to get many visitors hooked. But there’s also great joy in having an expert guide introduce the minutiae of the insect world or in sleeping under the stars at a bush camp.
Beyond the plains, Africa’s shifting scenery can take you to jungles, white sand beaches, coral reefs bountiful with marine life, or snow-capped mountain ranges. A rich array of options awaits, and our Africa specialists keep abreast of developments through frequent trips. Our expert knowledge will help you choose the right safari option, and discover tried and tested destinations in new ways or explore emerging ones.
