Top 5 Africa Tour Highlights

1. Trekking Kilimanjaro
Trekking Kilimanjaro is a challenging yet rewarding adventure that takes you to the roof of Africa. As Africa’s tallest peak, standing at 19,341 feet above northeast Tanzania, Kilimanjaro offers breathtaking views of diverse ecosystems, from lush rainforests to barren alpine deserts. The journey to the summit involves navigating through five distinct climate zones, each with its own unique flora and fauna. With experienced guides leading the way, trekkers experience a sense of accomplishment and awe as they reach the iconic Uhuru Peak, standing atop the continent and witnessing the sunrise over the vast expanse of the African plains below.

2. Victoria Falls
One of the world’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders, Victoria Falls plunges over 300 feet into the Zambezi Gorge, creating a mesmerizing display of mist and thundering water. Known locally as “Mosi-oa-Tunya,” or “The Smoke That Thunders,” the falls captivate visitors with their sheer power and beauty. Whether you view the falls from Zimbabwe or Zambia, witnessing Victoria Falls is an unforgettable experience that leaves a lasting impression.

3. The Valley of the Kings
The Valley of the Kings, located on the west bank of the Nile River near Luxor, Egypt, is an ancient burial ground for pharaohs and nobles of the New Kingdom period. Carved into the desert rock, the valley is home to over 60 elaborately decorated tombs, including that of the famous King Tutankhamun. These tombs hold priceless treasures and offer a glimpse into the beliefs and rituals of ancient Egyptian civilization.

      4. The Great Migration
      The Great Migration is one of nature’s most spectacular events, showcasing the annual journey of millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other herbivores across the plains of East Africa. Starting in the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania, the herds embark on a perilous trek northward in search of greener pastures and water sources, often crossing crocodile-infested rivers such as the Mara River in Kenya. As the seasons change and rains come and go, the animals navigate vast distances, facing predators and natural obstacles along the way. Witnessing this mass movement of wildlife on Africa tours in the Masai Mara and the Serengeti between the months of July and October.

        5. The Sahara Desert
        The Sahara Desert is the largest hot desert in the world, spanning over 5 million square miles across North Africa. Its vast expanse of sand dunes, rocky plateaus, and barren plains create a landscape of unparalleled beauty and harshness. Despite its arid conditions, the Sahara is home to a variety of life, including desert-adapted plants, insects, and nomadic tribes who have thrived in this environment for centuries. Visitors to the Sahara can experience the tranquility of its endless horizons, witness breathtaking sunsets over the dunes, and immerse themselves in the timeless traditions of its inhabitants.

        FAQs on Africa Tours

        What wildlife can I expect to see on a safari tour?

        On a safari tour in Africa, you can expect to encounter a stunning array of wildlife, including the iconic Big Five: lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, and rhinoceroses. Additionally, you may spot other predators such as cheetahs, hyenas, and wild dogs, as well as a diverse range of herbivores like giraffes, zebras, and antelopes. Primates such as chimpanzees and various species of monkeys inhabit the forests, while bird enthusiasts will delight in the myriad colorful species that grace the skies. Reptiles, from crocodiles to pythons, also add to the rich tapestry of African wildlife. Each safari offers a unique opportunity to witness these animals in their natural habitats, providing unforgettable moments of awe and connection with the natural world.

        When is the best time to visit Africa?

        The best time to visit Africa depends on the specific region and activities you’re interested in. Generally, the dry season, which varies by region, is often considered the best time for wildlife viewing and outdoor activities. For East Africa, including countries like Kenya and Tanzania, the dry season typically falls between June and October, making it an ideal time for safaris and witnessing the Great Migration. In Southern Africa, including countries like South Africa, Botswana, and Zambia, the dry winter months from May to September are prime for game viewing. However, for experiences like Victoria Falls, the best time is during the wet season when water levels are highest, typically from February to May.

        If you are planning on hiking in Africa or biking in Africa, keep in mind that heat will likely be a factor, and be sure to check the trip notes for advice on how to pack and dress appropriately.

        Is Africa safe for tourists?

        Africa is a vast and diverse continent with a wide range of destinations, each with its own safety considerations. While many parts of Africa are perfectly safe for tourists, it’s essential to exercise caution and stay informed about the specific risks of the region you plan to visit. Generally, popular tourist destinations and safari parks have robust security measures in place to ensure the safety of visitors. However, it’s advisable to take precautions such as staying informed about local customs and laws, avoiding risky areas, and staying vigilant, especially in crowded or unfamiliar environments. Our expert local tour guides are also on hand to ensure your safety and comfort throughout your tour.
