As the world’s second-largest continent, Africa offers an incredible diversity of landscapes, peoples, and experiences. It is a world-leader in sustainable tourism, innovative conservation programs, and preserving the rich heritage of its tribes and regions.
Most travelers initially visit Africa for its wildlife encounters. Whether it’s watching the iconic Great Wildebeest Migration in Kenya and Tanzania, hiking into the forests of Uganda and Rwanda to encounter mountain gorillas, or snorkeling with whale sharks off the coast of Mozambique.
But travelers return to Africa for the people and the shared moments that seem to happen spontaneously: watching a chef prepare dinner at your table in Cape Town, visiting a Maasai village and drinking tea around a fire, or learning to track wildlife from a San guide in Botswana’s Kalahari.
Africa can provide both surges of adrenaline (try the thrilling activities at Victoria Falls) and moments of drama – such as when a hunt takes place right in front of you. But it’s also the perfect place to disconnect to reconnect.
