Even in the 21st century, there is something magical and mysterious about Africa. This vast, wonderful continent, with its sprawling deserts, amazing great lakes, glorious mountains and wealth of fabulous cities and towns, is quite unlike anywhere else on Earth, and the sheer variety of culture and history across the continent is unrivalled. The best way to see and experience the delights of Africa is to take a planned tour, and we’ve found one that we believe is head and shoulders above the rest.
It’s organised by Africa4US, a highly-regarded outfit with extensive knowledge of the continent, and it is a rare and unique opportunity to experience all of Africa’s many faces. This exciting and rewarding African tour is something that will stay with you for a lifetime, such is the variety you will enjoy along the way. What can you expect on your travels? Let’s have a closer look at the amazing landmarks and sights you can see along the way.
From the Serengeti to Victoria Falls
The tour takes you on a quite exhilarating route through Eastern Africa, combining a variety of countries and stopping at some of the most iconic places in the world. You get the full splendour of Victoria Falls – known for good reason by the locals as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ – and follow in the footsteps of the great David Livingstone, the explorer who was the first Westerner to see this unrivalled spectacle. The largest waterfall in the world, it is accredited as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, and is a recognised World Heritage site.
In Tanzania you will be treated to the quite magnificent sight of the Serengeti, famous for the migration of many rare and endangered species who traverse the plains to match the seasons. Perhaps the most special sight of all in the Serengeti are its famous lions, as this is known as the best place of all to observe prides in the wild. Gazelles, zebras, hippopotamus and many more amazing mammals and birds populate the area, and you will be given a good chance of observing them on your tour.
Stunning Namib Desert
Another of the African safari packages provided by Africa4US takes you to the stunning expanse of the Namib Desert in Namibia. This beautiful country, one of the largest in Africa, has been home to the San people for thousands of years, and the fascinating bushmen have a culture all of their own. The desert is home to some of the tallest sand dunes in the world, and there are few more visually stunning scenes than when you first see the desert meeting the sea on the Atlantic Coast.
These are just two of the many exciting safari packages that you can choose from, and we recommend that you browed the Africa4US website carefully, as there is a great deal of diversity across the continent. A safari tour remains the best way to experience the real Africa, and what could be better than a night spent under the glorious African night sky, a world away from the daily drudgery of home.
