    Adventure across Africa

    The term safari was derived from the Arabic word ‘safar’, meaning journey. And ever since the word was adapted to refer to excursions to the wilds of Africa, people have ventured to the continent to discover the abundant fauna and flora, cultures and ways of life. Whether a novice or a pro, embarking on a photographic safari to Africa and capturing the wondrous wildlife and stunning scenery, allows one to create a unique experience.

    When embarking on an ecotourism safari, itineraries are built around very specific requirements as a holiday today is much more than just hopping on a plane, taking a handful of pictures, and departing for home, without being affected profoundly. Africa consists of 54 countries with more than a billion people calling the continent home. Considering that these individuals come from over 3,000 distinct tribes, a cultural safari to these shores will be rich and varied.

    A holiday is designed for respite from the concrete jungle, for relaxation far away from home. When combining a vacation of the leisurely kind with an immersion into worthy causes, the idea of a volunteerism safari to Africa is worth entertaining.

    Ecotourism

    Whether referred to as ecotourism or green tourism, the fact remains that is has become part of today’s travel calendar. Itineraries are built around very specific requirements as a holiday today is much more than just hopping on a plane, taking a handful of pictures, and departing for home once again, unaffected by what has been seen, heard and experienced.

    Tourists of all ages wanting an understanding of Africa’s web of life and to gain a greater appreciation for conservation, or those looking for a holiday with a difference, will return to the “real world” with an altered outlook on life after experiencing an ecotourism safari. The wilderness areas of this vast continent will come alive and the environment will be discovered in an exciting, in-depth and sensitive way.

    Cultural Excursion

    Africa consists of 54 countries with more than 1,2 billion people calling the continent home. Considering that these individuals come from over 3 000 distinct tribes, a cultural safari to these shores will be rich and varied.

    Regarded as the birthplace of the human race, Africa has a plethora of options when it comes to a journey of the cultural kind. The continent offers so much more than the obvious sites like the pyramids in Egypt and a memorable journey to other corners where diverse histories reign, is a must. Nearly a 130 UNESCO world heritage sites are situated in Africa, with 84 classified as sites of cultural importance. These range from ancient ruins and places of worship to historical archaeological digs.
