Africa Holidays
Straddling the equator, Africa offers you variety and extremes without parallel. From the rugged island beauty of Cape Verde to the vibrant coloured dunes of the Namibian desert, the contrasts of this vast and dramatic continent are astonishing. We have game parks, battlefields and mountains, the spectacular white sand beaches of Seychelles and a fascinating exploration of magical Kenya.

Go walking in South Africa and you’ll see it is a land of captivating contrasts. The bush and grasslands are full of exotic plant life and unique safari opportunities. The cities are bustling cultural centres with individual character and charm. The whole country is an enchanting mixture of the old and the new, organic and man made. Come with us on one of our holidays walking in South Africa and be blown away by the diversity, culture and passion alive in the country.
