Amazing Africa

It's easy to see why Africa became the birthplace of mankind. From its friendly and welcoming people to its dramatic beauty, this continent is a modern-day Garden of Eden that will capture the heart of everyone who visits.

From the ancient wonders of Egypt in the north, right down to the seductive beauty of Cape Town in South Africa, Africa is filled with more than enough wonders to keep even the most ardent adventurer busy for several years.

Site Seeing And Safariing

Lake Victoria is the world's second largest freshwater lake and is situated in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. The lake has been a premier tourist destination for centuries and with a range of world class resorts situated on its banks, it's the perfect place to relax and enjoy Africa.

The Fish River Canyon in Namibia is the world's second largest, and Africa's largest, canyon and is known for breathtaking scenery stretching over 160 kilometres. Sculpted millions of years ago, the canyon is now home to welcoming lodges and provides extensive hiking trails.

The Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and it's not difficult to see why. Bigger and deeper than the Niagara Falls, it's Africa's over-sized take on the much-loved waterfall.

Big cities mean tremendous character in Africa. Johannesburg, Cairo, Casablanca, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Lagos - all distinctly African cities overflowing with culture and a unique African take on urbanisation.

Safaris are undoubtedly as integral a part to the African holiday as sand is to the beach. There is no better way for you to get up close and personal with some of the world's most majestic creatures including the Big Five (Rhino's, Lions, Elephants, Buffalo and Leopards).

Emergency Assistance

We are fully committed to safeguarding our customers on holiday. With this in mind, we offer 24 hour help and support.
