Africa isn't always an easy place to visit but it's always remarkable.

Every journey to Africa will be different but every journey will change your life. We love Africa, and we'll plan the kind of trip that will make you love it too.
It's impossible to choose just a few highlights from as diverse a continent as Africa but we've done our best. Here are a few of our favourite travel experiences to this vibrant continent and we're excited to help you discover yours too.
When to travel to Africa depends on where you're going and what you'd like to do.
Generally speaking, the best time to see wildlife in Southern Africa is during the winter dry season, between May and October. Most safari destinations in Kenya are best between January and March but the Masai Mara migration between mid-August and October is also a highlight. Gorilla trekking in Uganda and Rwanda can be done any month of the year, but you'll probably have a better time in the drier and cooler months of January and February or June to September.
Africa beach holidays can happen any time of year but South Africa is most pleasant between December and March.
