Spa and Wellness

Spa and wellness holidays are a huge travel trend at the moment, and there’s nowhere better to indulge your senses and rediscover your joie de vivre than in Africa. The continent offers everything you need to relax, revive and rejuvenate. Beautiful landscapes and sweeping views have long been recognised as being good for the soul, and Africa offers endless variations on this theme. The pace of life is slower here, which also bodes well for a restorative vacation.

Solo Travel

While the idea of a solo vacation in Africa may seem a little daunting at first, the good news is that it’s a great option if you have wanderlust but no travelling companion. Solo travel is becoming more common, which means that holiday destinations are much more geared to welcoming people travelling on their own. That means that single supplements are less likely to be charged (reducing the overall cost) and that there are many more resources available to help you plan your trip.

Journey to East Africa

East Africa is where safari began – or at least that’s what they’ll tell you when you go there. And go there you should – it’s an amazing region that’s been captivating travellers for decades, and still offers a great many new experiences. Whether you want to go gorilla trekking or float above the Great Wildebeest Migration in a hot air balloon, East Africa is the place to go. The scenery is incredibly diverse, and especially outside the most popular parks and reserves, you could find that you have huge swathes of wilderness practically to yourself.

Giving Back

In the past, travel was all about what people brought back, in terms of souvenirs and pictures. Happily, we’ve moved on as an industry and now what guests most want to return home with is memories of incredible experiences. One of the best ways for them to achieve that is to participate in meaningful activities while they’re here in Africa – in other words, to give back. We’re big believers in Africa’s ability to solve its own problems, but a helping hand or two never goes amiss.

Photographic Safaris

No-one is sorry that cameras have replaced rifles as the ‘weapons’ of choice of modern safari-goers – this is one kind of shooting we’re happy to encourage. With the rise in importance of social media, tourists want to share their experiences with their friends, families and followers. That means that photography is becoming ever more important. As well as online sharing, technology has played its part in other ways. Digital cameras have almost completely replaced film cameras, making photography much more accessible.
