Experiencing the majestic continent of Africa is a dream come true for many explorers. The cradle of mankind, home to an amazing riches of exotic wildlife, the great rift valley with its deep lakes and luscious vegetation in its basins, the mighty Nile river with its rich history and unforgettable landscapes and the vast deserts, that go on like seas of sand.
Africa has an immense diversity of cultures and religions in the cities and rural tribal areas. The countries of Africa offer a Big Planet explorer a chance to experience the sights, sounds and spirit of ancient tribal rituals, dances and villages.
Adventures in Africa also include exotic beaches such as Zanzibar and Madagascar and challenging treks to the continent’s great heights – the summit Mt Kilimanjaro & Mt. Kenya. Experience the thundering sights and sounds of the replenishing waters of Victoria Falls and take a leisurely tour through the gorgeous wine country of South Africa . You can explore the garden route on two wheels to the exciting city of Capetown.
Follow in the footsteps of Kingsley, Livingston and Stanley on safaris where you may see the big five, herds of Elephants, giraffe & Wildebeest and experience a bird-lovers oasis. Perhaps a canoe trip down the Zambezi river or a walking safari in Zambia.
Big Planet offers you all the richness of these experiences and more.
