Big 5, small 5, climb Kili and give me high 5. There’s plenty to see and do in Africa. Stay under canvas for a true wilderness experience (although there are plenty of fixed builds available). Private vehicles, some open-sided, walking, boating or ballooning safaris all get you close to the action. Enjoy boutique beach hotels for barefoot luxury or head to fully inclusive resorts (if you have to).

The countries in Africa are as diverse as the landscapes within it. In East Africa, Tanzania and Kenya are home to the wide open plains of the Serengeti and Maasai Mara, respectively, which hosts the great wildebeest migration. Tanzania and Kenya also benefit from stunning white sandy beaches making them ideal safari and beach destinations. As you head south, southern Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia or South Africa, the landscape changes to mopane woodland, a pristine wilderness rich in game. Add the deserts of Namibia, the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda, home to the mountain gorillas, the urban cool of Capetown and you can see the need for a genuine Africa specialist.
