Africa
Many great men, leaders, writers, poets, explorers have glorified the mystery and suspense of what is still known as the Dark Continent. Or more fondly described as the Mother Continent, Africa invokes on it's natives a fierce sense of belonging that burns deeply into the soul. However, for the visitor the connection is even more mysterious. Now you too can explore.

Blessed with majestic landscapes that carry the noblest of wild creatures, Africa's natural environment has defined its own fascination. A place of vast struggles, it is also our most magnificent and diverse continent - with more cultures, more languages, more human history, and more varied and extreme habitats and wild animal creatures than any other continent on Earth. But it is without doubt the people of Africa that are at its core, both in struggle and in hope. Nowhere but in Africa, can you fall in love with nature and life itself.

Whether you are planning your first visit to Africa, or are a serial visitor with Africa boldly coursing through your veins, there is always more to experience.

For the 'beginner' standing on the southernmost tip of Africa overlooking the mythical mingling place of two great oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, enjoying world-class cuisine at a 'Top 10 in the world' hotel, and getting close to a herd of Zebra running free and unbounded is as good a start any. South Africa, the Rainbow Nation, full of overwhelming beauty and spectacular contrasts, be cosmopolitan, be wild, be adventurous.

For the visitor that just has to go back to see more - the choice is endless. There are few wide-open places to compare with the desert country of Namibia. The red, shifting, drifting sands of Sossusvlei are symbols of weather, harsh and relentless. Desert adapted Rhino and Elephant, a Skeleton Coast with real shipwrecks, pelicans and seals, ghost towns, the second largest Canyon in the world and a route through to Botswana, Zambia, and Victoria Falls.
The miracle of the Okavango Delta (Botswana) begins as the heavy rains of the tropical Angola flood into the Quito and Cubango rivers, which bring the water each January to the Okavango River. Here the river floods into the yellow sands of the Kalahari Desert, a huge flat basin, the water spills out over the sands to form the largest inland delta in the world. From this great snaking river, a myriad of channels, pools and lakes grow to support a web of life that is magnificently diverse.
The Coconut Coast - Mozambique a land of seafarers and adventurers, the natural beauty of the coastline is legendary. Etched by tall palms, the sea appears like a glittering jewel, full of promise. Dipping, turning and bowing Dhows pirouette like dancers on the calm Indian Ocean. This stretch of ocean boasts some of the worlds most un-spoilt diving, remote barefoot paradise island escapes and arguably the freshest, bestest seafood to be found. A map of Zambia will display great expanses of green that denote game reserves. Kafue, Lochnivar, South Luangwa, North Luangwa, Kasanka, Manda to name a few. Your walking safari will be guided by drill-parade smart rangers in crisp uniforms, polished boots and the mandatory rifle and huge, white-toothed grin. 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - 'the Smoke that Thunders' Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, not to be missed.
Find it impossible to not to open your heart to the warmth and frankness of the people of a nation who wear their hearts so unashamedly on their sleeves in the tiny country of Malawi. 'The Lake' is synonymous with Malawi, explore the exquisitely colourful reef life, meet the local fisherman, sail, kayak, relax, explore. If you started your game viewing visits in South Africa or Botswana, the word Tanzania you may hear as a whisper holding the quiet assurance of its place. Those of us imbued with the certainty that man cannot live without wild things and wild places find themselves eventually in an African Wilderness. One day you will come to East Africa, to the plains of the Serengeti where there is a continuous thread of life offering a glimpse of paradise; wild, pristine and unblemished.
The first reaches of the Nile as it flows out of Lake Victoria, on down the hill where on a broad sweeping bend the river courses fiercely down a series of rapids and is now 200 meters wide, swift and deep. And onto the misty Virunga Mountains rising on the divide between Uganda, Rwanda and The Congo, they create a natural barrier of inordinate beauty and a fitting home for the mountain gorillas.
In the faded red of pre-dawn Kenyan light, whilst driving toward the shores of the Mara River, you will notice wildebeest and zebra in every direction, moving purposefully, with heads down. In the far distance on the horizon you can make out the light grey streaks of falling rain. The animals gather on the banks of the Mara River..... until after a few false starts thousands of animals storm the river and begin their migration towards the distant promise of rain.
It is a quintessential African road that leads to Mana Pools; the isolated, thickset Baobabs lend an iconic African definition to the land that seems poised waiting to come alive again - Zimbabwe.

Although it is not possible to get to know Africa's splendid diversity in one lifetime, it is a place that nevertheless invites and challenges you to engage in a personal exploration of some kind
