What comes to mind when you think about Africa? Do you envision a great desert and animals fighting over the last remnants of water as they wait for the rainy season? Do you envision Great savannas of brown grass where animals compete for resources? If you answered yes, then you are like most people. For many of us our only experience with Africa comes from the Discovery Channel. We have seen lots of shows about wildlife in this context. But Africa is an extraordinarily diverse continent composed of 46 separate and unique countries. When one says a vacation to Africa sounds like fun this could mean anything.
The best African tours take full advantage of this diversity, working destinations with varying features into the vacation gives everyone a taste of ho splendid Africa can be. You might spend a day locking glorious beaches, relaxing with your toes in the sand and listening to the sound of waves crashing on the shore. You can spend hours basking in the sun, but be sure to bring sunblock as too much that could be dangerous. It is not uncommon for travelers to experience heatstroke or extreme sunburn’s. There are beaches that are animal sanctuaries where you can experience beautiful marine life. Eco tours are available that provide education opportunities for those interested in how to preserve the natural world we love.
Another stop on the perfect tour are waterway trips where you can see breathtaking waterfalls, a rich variety of wildlife such as hippopotamus, crocodiles, zebras, and even lions if you’re lucky. Birdwatchers will especially enjoy the many species available to see. These trips often take handmade canoes down seasonal waterways where visitors can experience first-hand how tribal people travel. You will find options to spend the night out under the stars or you may choose a final destination at a luxury resort. It is easy to choose the comfort level you want to experience. Africa is the perfect mix of all that is old and the modern world.
