Why visit Africa
Embark on an unforgettable journey through the heart of Africa, and witness nature in its rawest form! Whether it’s a two-hour bus ride or a weeks-long trek across the wilderness – no safari is complete without experiencing incredible wildlife like lions and elephants.
By the way: The term safari has been used as far back as the 1800s to describe voyages that last weeks on end! With origins from Swahili, any type of exploration can be classified as one; whether you’re traversing two hours by bus or circumnavigating around the world.
But don’t limit yourself to a safari; countless other magical moments await those willing to explore deeper into the African plains. Immerse yourself in local culture, discover hidden gems & marvel at stunning landscapes far from civilization.
Our favorite wildlife experiences:
The beaches of Africa offer an unparalleled experience. From the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean on its east side to the golden sands beaches hugging the Atlantic on its west side, you’ll find 19 thousand miles of dramatic coastal scenery with endless opportunities for exploration and discovery. Here, you can immerse yourself in a vibrant mix of culture and the beauty of nature. Whether you’re looking to relax on white sand beaches or search out your next adrenaline-filled adventure – there is something here for everyone.
Our favorite beaches:
African culture is so much more than just a few attractions for tourists to visit, take pictures of and leave once your stay is over. It is full of little complexities, nuances, and stories that need to be experienced and heard firsthand to understand its culture’s history, richness, and beauty.
Visiting Africa can open our eyes to a rich and vibrant culture beyond what we’ve been told or even imagined, filled with people whose stories will move us, delight us and educate us.
An African cultural experience is about coming together and building relationships for an adventure you will never forget. Actual cultural experiences are found in authentic interactions with locals, be it stories shared over a campfire at night or firsthand learning of a region’s history and customs. Even something as simple as sharing a meal together with locals can provide a deeper insight into African culture than any shallow touristic activity ever could.
