Adventure holidays to Africa to satisfy your inner explorer

Adventurously explore the wonders of Africa

Few, if any parts of the world invoke the spirit of adventure more than Africa. Tales of explorers walking and sailing around the continent go back as far as Vasco de Gama discovering the Cape of Good Hope in the 1490s as he tried to find a passage to India. Since then, the length and breadth of Africa has been explored, allowing modern day travellers to invoke the same spirit of adventure, albeit with a more luxury angle on their trips.

For many, a modern-day adventure is all about getting off the beaten track and exploring less well-known destinations and here we have you covered. Ethiopia fits this bill really well, with some incredible areas to visit in both the north and south of the country and our partnership with a local luxury camping company will mean you can explore in the lap of luxury.

Sao Tome & Principe offers visitors the chance to sit on deserted beaches and trek through virgin forests, whilst the vast island of Madagascar is a great place for adventurers looking to enjoy unique wildlife and stunning landscapes. Indeed, it is even possible find the road less travelled in more “mainstream” destinations across the continent.

The north-western reaches of both South Africa and Namibia remain firmly off many tourists’ radar, as do the western expanses of Tanzania and Zambia. Despite having a rich history of tourism, Zimbabwe remains somewhat off the beaten track as a whole right now, so there is the feeling of being a pioneer on any trip you take here.

Ultimately, what you deem to be an adventure is totally your choice and we are here to guide you to getting the perfect trip for your needs put together. Whether you are looking to venture where few other tourists tread, enjoy more remote sections of popular parks or simply spend a night or two away from the crowds, we have the knowledge and the contacts to make the perfect trip happen for you.
