Have you ever dreamed of holidays that can surprise you; holidays during which you wouldn't know every planned step ahead?
If your answer is yes, then you are likely to enjoy a trip to Africa, the continent of music, dance, diversity and adventure. Here life works differently and you will never want to go anywhere else. Visits at the Zanzibar Northern Beaches create a magical experience known only from fairy tales and the Pyramids of Giza call to mind an ancient Egypt.
A different kind of experience awaits you during a rafting tour near the Victoria Falls in Zambia. The locals would call them ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ and a trip during the rainy season will explain the name easily. The Lion's head in South Africa is yet another attraction we can highly recommend as an adventure for those loving heights. It is not the highest mountain but it promises a view into the sea of lights when climbed during a night of a full moon.
The best travel period is the european winter from November to February. Traveling in Africa can be highly luxury on the the Blue Train in the south of the continent and on Rovos Rail from Zanzibar to Cape Town. But if you prefer it the local way you should get a real taste of Africa on one of the buses.
You don't know when it will leave and you don't know when it will arrive as the huts to stop by on the way are many. There is a prejudice that every white man owns a car, hence if you want to stir some excitement among the locals get on a bike. You can even spice it up by getting on a bike at noon, a time when locals would usually not leave the house. Be sure to get some laughter and make new friends.
