Our favourite destinations in Africa

  • The Serengeti. Witness the largest overland mammal migration in the world as millions of mammals including wildebeests, zebras and gazelles travel between Tanzania and Kenya.
  • Morocco. From the cities to the deserts, Morocco is an ancient and truly wondrous world of its own. Don’t leave without spending a few days walking the streets of Chefchaouen, the famous blue city.
  • Kruger National Park. You can see all of the animals that make up the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and Cape buffalo) in one place on a tour through Kruger National Park.
  • Victoria Falls. You’ll be left agape at the sheer scale of this 108-metre-tall waterfall. For a unique perspective, take a helicopter flight around the falls.
  • Madagascar. With so many different ecosystems packed into one island, there’s something different around every corner of Madagascar. The otherworldly, eerie pinnacles of Parc National des Tsingy in Western Madagascar have to be seen to be believed.

When should I go to Africa?

Africa’s climate varies a lot from one region to another. In northern Africa, spring and autumn are the best times to visit as the weather is far milder than in summer and winter. In southern Africa, the best time to visit is between May and October, when the monsoons are over and the animals are out in droves.
