Mention Africa, and for most people it immediately conjures up images of leopards stalking a herd of zebra on the Serengeti, crocodiles wallowing in muddy rivers, and brightly painted warriors with spears and animal fur clothing. Of course there are areas with all of these things… but not many as most people imagine.

Exploring Africa
In reality, Africa is a huge continent that is impossible to pigeon-hole into any particular style or category. From the ancient pyramids in the north, to Table Mountain in the south, it is a fascinating, intriguing, and above all, welcoming land to the lively exciting cities of Cape Town, Johannesburg, Lagos and Nairobi.

What to See

For all its amazing scenery and unbelievable wildlife, it’s the people that make Africa what it is. Fiercely proud and strong they may be, but they are warm hearted, unendingly cheerful, and have an amazing ability to see the bright side of everything. Everywhere you go there will be singing and dancing at the first sign of a foreign face. They will offer you there last morsel of food as a gesture of friendship, and sleep outside to offer you their bed.
