From the Mediterranean to the southern oceans, the vast continent of Africa steals the heart of all those who set foot on her soil. Here, where the sense of space is stronger than anywhere else on the planet, majestic wild animals roam the plains, from the Great Rift Valley to the Kalahari. Seeing them in the wild thrills and humbles in equal measure. That is why a safari – whether based in a tented camp or a luxury lodge – should in our opinion be the lynchpin of any African adventure.
But Africa has infinite variety. The Skeleton Coast of Namibia, the Cape winelands, Madagascar’s extraordinary indigenous wildlife, rainforests and white beaches… All this and much more are there to be discovered. Yes, Africa is romantic. But it’s also real: vibrant, spiritual, colourful, proud, free. Are you ready to lose your heart?
