A holiday in Africa is an unforgettable experience. This diverse multicultural country is breathtakingly diverse in landscape and visitor experiences. Many first-time visitors make a beeline for the well known South African regions of the Cape, the Garden Route and Kruger National Park, and with good reason, but this amazing land rewards a longer-than-usual stay, giving you a chance to enjoy less well-known adventures.
To truly get the best out of your holiday, Africa is also a wonderful destination to use as a base when exploring the world. You can even combine a Kruger safari with a stay on the sugar soft beaches of Mauritius, if you have been bitten by the travel bug.
