Its name means “sunny place” in the Berber tongue, but “Africa” may as well be a synonym for “vastness.” A truly massive continent comprising over 20% of the planet’s available land, Africa is home to the world’s largest desert, its longest river, its hottest temperatures, and hundreds of dialects and cultures spread among a billion people. But as mind-boggling as it seems at first, you’ll be amazed how intimate it feels once you get to know it. This is adventure’s last great frontier. Come blaze some trails.

Africa - Tanzania
Africa. It’s on every traveller’s to-do list, but on very few “done” lists. This is a land where the unusual is commonplace and a chance encounter can change you forever. The national parks and game reserves here are so world-famous they’re known by their first names: Kruger, Chobe, Tarangire. 2012 finds us expanding our reach in Africa by digging deeper into Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa’s fabled Garden Route. Africa really is like nowhere else on Earth. Prepare to be amazed.
