Africa

Not to be missed

A trip to Africa is the journey of a lifetime. While climbing the mighty Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, admiring epic Victoria Falls, viewing lions and elephants on a safari or going gorilla trekking in Uganda, you will feel more like traveller than a mere tourist.

A tour in Africa means exploring the Sahara desert or Namibia desert, game driving in large national parks looking for the Big 5 but also meeting the local populations of Ethiopia and getting to know their lifestyle. In northern Africa you can travel through the stunning imperial cities of Morocco or enjoy the enchanting beaches and sea in Tunisia for a completely relaxing holiday.

In central and southern Africa you will be sorrounded by wild nature and animals: you can try and spot chimps and mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda, see the Tsinghy, curious rock formations in Madgascar or the incredible landscapes of the Garden Route in South Africa. And then there is the Kalahari desert in Namibia, the Okavango Delta in Botswana, which is best explored on a local boat, fabulous Kruger Park again in South Africa, the spectacular mountains of Lesotho and Swaziland, the ideal destinations for trekking lovers, without giving up on interaction with local people.

And finally spectacular Victoria Falls, on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, formed by the mighty Zambezi River, a feast for the eyes and an emotion to remember forever.

Africa is thus perfect for tailormade tours in close contact with nature, with game drives and desert safaris: with the help of our travel experts you will just have to choose the destination and the kind of trip and you will be guided step by step around this marvelous continent, while unveiling its secrets.

Perché fare un viaggio in Africa

Africa is one of the most intriguing and fascinating continents on Earth, the third biggest after Asia and America. One single trip is not enough to get to know it completely, since it hosts a huge diversity of climates, ethnic groups, cultures and landscapes including deserts, savannas and rainforests.

The highest peaks in Africa are located in the area around the Rift Valley. Here it is possible to admire the high mountains of Ruwenzori Chain, Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya,  both extinct volcanoes with an ice cap. The Northern area of the continent hosts the largest desert in the world, the Sahara desert. Here the climate is Mediterranean with warm and dry summers and mild and humid winters.

Africa is famous for its diverse unique fauna, including several species of felines, monkeys, herbivorous animals and big herds of buffaloes, gnus, zebras, gazelles and many others. This makes it the perfect destination for a safari, in fact many travellers come here to view the Big 5 from up close in the great national parks, such as Kruger Park in South Africa, Chobe in Botswana, Arusha and Serengeti in Tanzania, just to name a few. Uganda and Rwanda are famous for trekking with mountain gorillas and chimps, endangered species that are close to the human kind.

The African population is made up of different ethnic groups, anyway two main groups can be distinguished, dividing the continent into White Africa, in the South, and Black Africa in the Sub-Saharan area. The spoken languages, most of them not official, are more than two thousand and vary from State to State, although the official languages are European due to past colonization. A trip to discover local populations, visiting villages, learning about customs and traditions of the African tribes, is an experience which leaves an indelible mark.
