Africa is a land of myriad contrasts. This is where you will find everything from arid deserts to bountiful rainforests throbbing with life, from mighty waterfalls gushing down high mountains to sun-kissed beaches against azure waters, and from valleys of beautiful flowers to snow capped peaks.

The birthplace of mankind and a cradle for various species of wildlife, Africa manages to constantly baffle the mind. From the world's largest and heaviest beetle, the Goliath Beetle, to the smallest butterfly with half-inch wings, the Dwarf Blue Butterfly, and the mighty cats – lions, cheetahs and leopards – Africa has them all!

The impressive mix of vivid landscapes, wildlife, thrilling adventures, interesting history and vibrant culture preserved by the lively local tribes will leave you with an urge to return to this great continent again and again for unforgettable holidays in Africa.
