Africa - Southern and Central

This region covers the southern part of this fascinating continent, from West Africa round to East Africa. Snow-capped mountains, the Sahara Desert, Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti and Maasai Mara all await the intrepid traveller. There is a vast range of cultures and experiences waiting to be explored in this region, but for many, the continent’s safaris are its biggest draw; where else can you see lions, rhinos, hippos, elephants, gorillas, leopards and flamingos in their natural habitat?
You can explore Uganda’s rainforests, the Great Rift Valley, South Africa’s Kruger National Park or take a trek with the Bedouin – the possibilities are endless.
