Isak Dinesen wrote, ‘When you have caught the rhythm of Africa, you find that it is the same in all her music.’ And it's not just the tribal drums, but the rhythms of the land: the sound the Serengeti makes as it wakes each morning, a mountain gorilla rustling through the Rwandan jungle or the thunder of wildebeest hooves across the Masai Mara. Kick back on the chalk-white beaches of Zanzibar, chat with vendors in the spice-filled souqs of Marrakech and watch plodding elephants from the snowy summit of Kilimanjaro. Africa is calling. Come and get rhythm.
New trips in Africa
There's so much more to Africa than the classic safari. This year we’re tracing our way through the wind-sculpted sand dunes and petrified forests of Namibia, chilling with green sea turtles in Zanzibar and stargazing among the moonlit dunes of Morocco. Throw in world-famous canyons, ancient rock paintings, spice-filled markets and the haunting stillness of the Namib and you’ve got yourself one cracking land of adventure.
