The Sphinx and Pyramids in Egypt

Bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, on the north by the Mediterranean Sea and on the east by the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, Africa is a vast plateau filled with wonder. Its sheer scale, natural beauty, diverse landscape, vibrant flora and fauna and welcoming people make Africa one of the most exciting and enchanting continents on the planet.  [ReadMoreMob]

From the tropical rainforests of Uganda and Zanzibar’s pristine coastlines to the rippling dunes of the Namib Desert and the Great Rift Valley’s jagged mountains and deep canyons, the continent has a bewildering range of breath-taking scenery. The savannah of the Serengeti, the snow-capped peaks of Kilimanjaro and Cape Town’s Table Mountain – all await the intrepid traveller. On the continent where human beings first came into existence, traditions and ancient rites can be found at every turn. From Egypt’s pyramids to Bedouin treks and Morocco’s Medina, interaction with Old Africa’s illuminating past is unavoidable.  [ReadMoreDesk]

For many, the continent’s safaris are its biggest draw: the possibility of seeing lions, rhinos, hippos, elephants, gorillas, leopards and flamingos in their natural habitat is possibly Africa’s greatest asset. An African safari may be viewed as a travel cliché these days, but just watching wild beasts in action in the Masai Mara, or a battle of wits between predator and prey in the Kruger National Park, still has the power to reduce visitors to a state of complete astonishment.

Travelling within Africa can at times be challenging, but one thing is for sure, one cruise to Africa simply isn’t enough. The breadth of experiences that await discovery across this mysterious, majestic continent demands any number of journeys through its land.
