Africa

Why Visit Africa?

Africa, the world’s second-largest continent, spans 30.2 million square kilometers, showcasing diverse geography and cultures. Vast, sandy deserts and wildlife-rich savannas contrast with stunningly lush rainforests and bustling cities as old as time. Over 1.3 billion people and some of the world’s most incredible (and dangerous) wildlife call Africa home.

Known as the “Cradle of Humankind” where man first evolved, Africa’s role in history is significant. From the pyramids of Egypt and the Great Sphinx to ancient mosques and rock-hewn churches, the Mother Continent is a fascinating place to visit.
