Leisure Activities

Victoria Falls, Zambia

Victoria Falls in southern Africa lies on the Zambezi River, at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. This is the largest body of falling water on earth - an amazing sight to behold and columns of spray can be seen from miles away.

Wildlife

Take a trip on one of the many safaris offered around the continent, to flourishing lagoons, waterholes and much more. Discover what nature has to offer, as well as taking a glimpse into a day in the life of some of the most beautiful animals in the world - it's the photo opportunity of a lifetime!

Table Mountain

This flat-topped mountain is a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town. You can hike to the top or take the easier option of the cable car. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park and, once again, it is a photographers dream!

About Africa

The vast continent of Africa is enormous and there is something about this wonderful place that makes you feel alive and touches your soul. From the beautiful beaches in Zanzibar or Mozambique, to the everyday adventures the vast continent has to offer; Africa will simply take your breath away. Enjoy the twists and turns of the ultimate safari experience, whilst soaking in the sun and taking in the scenery and wonderful wildlife.

More About Africa

Of course, one of the main attractions for visitors to Africa is the chance to see the famous ‘Big Five’ – the lion, African elephant, cape buffalo, rhinoceros and leopard. The rolling plains of Kenya are full of wildlife and plenty of game viewing safaris are available which will leave you literally open-mouthed with awe.

South Africa has wildlife, amazing landscapes and unspoilt sandy beaches. Cape Town is an ever-popular choice for visitors as it lies between the glistening ocean and the magnificent Table Mountain. If you’re a bit of a wine buff, you could take a indulgent food and wine tour. Perhaps exploration and scenery is more your thing? If so, we’d highly recommend a leisurely drive down the beautiful Garden Route.

Morocco brings you the delights of Agadir, Essaouira, Marrakech and Casablanca as well as the spectacular Atlas Mountains. Experience the bustling souks, luxury hotels, traditional rhiads and all inclusive resorts.

Foodwise, there’s an array of cuisines available with unique African tastes including the Arabian-influenced curries and traditional South African recipes which will keep you coming back for more. Accompanying your meal with a sample or two of wonderful South African wine makes for simple perfection.

Many two-centre holiday choices are available for this destination too so, for example, you could combine a safari break with a luxury stay in a city or at the beach. You could also twin a South African stay with a visit to the Maldives, Mauritius or the Seychelles – a wonderful option for honeymooners.

We can find you the best deals available for your preferred destination or arrange a bespoke holiday tailored to your specific requirements… our travel experts are committed to doing their absolute best to make your holiday dreams come true.
