Africa is an incredibly diverse continent, rich in wildlife, natural landscapes and indigenous culture. From the Mediterranean-influenced north to its stunning Indian Ocean islands, it offers the discerning traveller the opportunity for new experiences on every visit.
And, there's luxury accommodation aplenty, particularly in the continent's game reserves and national parks, where ultra-stylish safari lodges bring you up close to the Big Five and more. In Botswana, see hippos and crocodiles amid the papyrus-lined waterways of the Chobe National Park or head to Tanzania for epic game viewing in the world-famous Serengeti. Whichever you choose, it's all complemented by the likes of private gourmet dining and sundowners in the savannah.
Namibia's epic landscapes span everything from barren salt pans to the wild, shipwreck-laden Skeleton Coast, while South Africa offers big game safari parks, famed vineyards and culture-packed cities, linked by epic road trips and luxury rail journeys. And, once overlooked in favour of the big hitters, Rwanda is firmly on the must-visit list – it's here that you can come face to face with the majestic mountain gorilla.
