- 2014-01-01 - 2014-12-31
See Africa encompassed, touring from Kenya to South Africa.
Want Africa with the lot? That's just what you'll get on this epic adventure across eleven countries. See Africa encompassed as you tour though Kenya, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi, Zanzibar, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda and South Africa. Get breathtakingly close to animals more often seen in zoos and nature documentaries: endangered mountain gorillas, lumbering elephants, ferocious lions and tiny dik-dik antelopes. Along the way, meet people from a range of cultures and communities: the spice growers of Zanzibar, friendly fishermen on Lake Malawi and the fascinating San Bushmen. This trip will leave you humbled and amazed by the breadth of life and culture – and the beauty of nature – on this ancient and spectacular continent.
