Travel Africa with us
The simmering sun sinks beneath the
delicate stretch of a baobab tree as the first notes of the Lion King’s
soundtrack play. It’s that iconic image that many of us carry as our
first introduction to the massive and marvellous continent. For others,
it’s the awe-inspiring remainders of history in the form of the Egyptian
Pyramids. Some might connect it to the swaying green waves of grass in
the Savannah. Others might hear the waves that strike the shore of the
Seychelles and say its name.
This is Africa – a continent so diverse,
packed full of beautiful countries, backed by a rich heritage and
tinged with a complex and painful past. The chance to explore its
corners is a gift. Each slice of this content, each sliver is a
revelation. The essence of this continent breathes from every inch of
the land. It is in the mud underneath the hand of the great Gorilla
lumbering in the jungles of the Congo. It is in the winds that sweep
across the curve of the Table Mountain. It pulses in the streets of the
sprawling cities. It ebbs and flows in the rhythms of Swahili, Igbo,
Zulu, Amharic, Arabic, French, Shona and the other languages that
populate it. It rumbles and splashes with the Great Victoria Falls.
