Experiences

Explore our African travel experiences

African travel is changing. Traditionally, itineraries were country-based but thanks to improved logistics and accommodation, travellers to Africa are now basing their plans on the experience they want. It could be sitting down with a family of mountain gorillas in a rainforest clearing or sitting down to a silver service dinner on the world’s most luxurious train.

We believe our experiences are Africa’s most iconic and we’ve taken care to select the best tours and accommodation to match your expectations. Gorilla trekking and walking safaris with expert professional guides; lodges that lie on the path of the wildebeest migration; and honeymoon hideaways set on private islands.

African travel experiences can also span several countries, adding different elements of landscape and culture. Romantic journeys combine the sights of Cape Town and Victoria Falls with Big 5 game viewing in the Kruger. Why not book a honeymoon that combines the big game of Zambia with the unfettered friendliness of Lake Malawi? Gorilla trekking can be enjoyed in Rwanda or Uganda – or both, while you can get on board a luxury train in Cape Town and get off in Dar es Salaam, ready for a holiday on Zanzibar.
