The vast continent of Africa is enormous and there is something about this wonderful place that makes you feel alive and touches your soul.

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.
