Africa is more than a place. It’s a feeling, one that never leaves you. Warm smiles, stirring heritage, endless landscapes, astonishing wildlife—we invite you to learn more about the wild and beautiful heart of Africa, and how it will capture your own.
What is it about Africa, this continent of contrasts, that leaves a traveler forever changed? The “feeling” of Africa is hard to sum up—but we can try. This is our love letter to the Africa we know, the land we’re proud and privileged to call home. Here’s how Africa will touch your heart:
Fall in love with the landscapes
When most travelers think “Africa,” the mind goes to wild, wide-open spaces that remind you of the vastness of this world—and your small yet singular place in it. This is the Serengeti, the Maasai Mara, Africa’s great plains.
But this iconic image of Africa is just the beginning.
There’s also the heartbreak of a single leafless tree silhouetted against the parched, rust-colored sands of the Kalahari Desert. There’s the lushness of the Okavango Delta when the rainfall from the highlands finally floods the plains, where watery blues and greens run together. There’s the mist that clings to the mountains of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the coral that studs the coastline of the Seychelles, the water that thunders over Victoria Falls.
And there is, of course, so much more. It’s up to you to discover it.
Fall in love with the wildlife
Africa is a wonderland of wildlife, with animals you’ve only ever seen in the pages of National Geographic parading right in front of your eyes.
The only question is—how will you choose to encounter them?
Spy the Big Five—lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo—on a game drive deep into the bush. Wake to giraffes and zebras grazing past your window at your luxury safari camp. Paddle past crocodiles on the Zambezi River, or swim with sharks on the South African coast. Hike through bamboo forests to encounter mountain gorillas and chimpanzees.
But no matter where you go or what you do, you’ll fall asleep each night to the wild sounds all around you … the chirps, whirrs, and growls all mingling into your own unforgettable African lullaby.
Fall in love with the people
Our confession? It’s Africa’s people who keep us coming back. The expert safari guides who remember our names and greet us with a quick smile. The chefs and sommeliers in Cape Town who turn Africa’s bounty into culinary treasures. The fiercely dedicated rangers and conservationists preserving the wild land. The resourceful bushmen and remote tribes keeping centuries-old traditions alive.
Their warmth is palpable, their humility infectious—and their welcome forever cherished by our team and our clients.
