Traveling to Africa is a life-changing experience and one that will be totally different to anywhere else you’ve been before. Being the world’s second-largest continent, Africa has the longest river in the Nile, the largest desert in the Sahara, the tallest freestanding mountain in Kilimanjaro and the biggest land animal in the African elephant.
Wildlife is a huge draw for visiting Africa, and safaris will introduce you to the likes of rhinos, lions, hippos and leopards. It truly is an outdoor paradise, with activities such as trekking, rafting and canoeing in abundance.
Given that Africa is made up of 54 individual countries and numerous ethnic groups, you’ll also discover some widely-different cultures, lifestyles and wellness traditions too.
