It’s been said that every person should visit Africa at least once- but why? What makes this a continent that calls everyone to experience it? Is it the utterly unique wildlife we will be celebrating this 4th September with National Wildlife day? The majestic elephant’s and mighty lions? Is it the generally friendly locals, or the magnificent and unmatched landscapes? Is it a longing to return to the continent that birthed mankind? Whatever the magic, Acacia Africa certainly believes everyone should experience the unique continent we call home at least once.
Unparalleled vistas, remarkable wildlife and exceptional culture are the name of the game when you visit Africa. Here are just a few of the reasons you need to add Africa to your bucket list today.
Be it the iconic elephant [be sure to celebrate them on Elephant Appreciation Day, 22 September this year], majestic lion and kooky giraffe, or the smallest buck, meerkat and ‘dassie’, the wildlife of Africa is iconic. Many come for the Big 5, but the dazzling array of animal life is truly staggering. Rainforest, beach, savanna, desert and semi-desert, riverine valleys…each landscape boasts its own special animals for you to discover.
