Souqs, savannas, safaris and the Sahara – the lure of Africa is its diverse wildlife, thousands of cultures and breathtaking landscapes.

Originally meaning ‘to travel’ in Arabic and Swahili, the word ‘safari’ can describe many types of epic adventure in Africa. There’s the ancient Egypt kind – discovering the lost city of Abu Simbel and the Valley of the Kings. The nomadic one – veering away from Morocco’s souqs and medinas and being hosted by a Berber family in the Sahara. The local village version – cherishing moments of interaction with Maasai, San and Malagasy cultures. And, of course, the wildlife way – heading in search of the Big Five in any number of game reserves and parks: Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Kruger and Lake Nakuru, to name a few. What does your African adventure look like?

Overlanding in Africa

Travelling overland is something special. There’s very little between you and the world – and on safari, that world is pretty captivating. Across the plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, through cornfields, mountains and remote villages: take a drive on the wild side, Intrepid style.

What to do in 7-10 days in Africa

In a short amount of time in Africa, you can get an insight into a place, learn about local communities and check out some of the hotspots, with a couple of game drives thrown in for good measure. You might like to mix up a Serengeti safari in Tanzania with time to chill out by the pristine northern beaches of Zanzibar. If Morocco’s your thing, why not consider a city and coast short trip that gives you a taste of this majestic country.

Whether it’s taking in the mighty Victoria Falls from multiple angles, seeing the best of Okavango or discovering the parks and Maasai communities of Kenya, this diverse continent can give you a quick taste of some key places, or form part of a longer adventure.

What to do in 3 weeks in Africa

Three weeks in Africa opens up the possibilities of contrasting experiences or a more in-depth immersion into a number of places. How about this: once you’ve headed on a safari and followed the migration route in East Africa, head further afield into the thickets of the Ugandan or Rwandan jungle to meet a rare silverback on an unforgettable gorilla trek.

You have time to discover Madagascar’s unusual wildlife and Avenue of the Baobabs, take to the mighty south of Africa through Johannesburg to Vic Falls, or venture down the Namibian coast to southern Cape Town.
