Adventure Travel To Africa
Watch the Migration on a Kenyan Nature Game Preserve
An Africa safari may be found on many people’s bucket lists but a trip to Africa promises more than just the opportunity to spot elephants, giraffes and other exotic wildlife in their natural habitat. Adventure vacations in Africa, which is the world’s second-largest continent, offer an array of exciting experiences such as kayaking, snorkeling, sandboarding and more!
Located at the tip of the continent, South Africa is home to many incredible active adventures. You can go kayaking in Tsitsikamma and explore caves and ancient forests or try snorkeling in the incredible tide pools of the Storms River. Sandboarding in Capetown and hiking the Tugula Gorge Trail in the Royal Natal National Park are also great additions to an adventure trip to Africa.
Africa tours wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Kenya, home to more than 45 national parks and reserves. From the beautiful beaches along the Indian Ocean to the peaks of Mount Kenya, there’s a lot of adventure travel to be found in this amazing country. For a unique experience, embark on a bicycle safari through the Great Plains of Kenya with Ride for Lions, a conservation effort to protect the lions’ natural habitat.
Of course, you can fulfill your dream of embarking on an Africa safari at the Kariega Game Reserve in South Africa or the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. Keep an eye out for lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards and more spectacular wildlife.
When you’re ready, you can take a break from your Africa tours and relax in luxurious surroundings by booking a stay at Kenya’s Lake Nakuru Lodge or Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, or Villa Afrikana in South Africa.
