africa travel guide - a brief summary on africa

Africa is the second largest continent in the world and consists of 53 countries. The continent's highest point is Mt. Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, towering over the African plains at 19,341ft. Africa boasts the world’s longest river, the famous Nile, as well as the world’s largest desert, the Sahara, stretching over most of northern Africa. Africa is also home to the highest dunes in the world at Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert in Namibia.

Africa is a continent rich in natural beauty and diversity of cultures. It is a destination that offers luxury as well as adventure and a healthy combination of the two. Be it a romantic honeymoon on the sundrenched beaches of Zanzibar, the great migration of wildebeests from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara, a shopping trip at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town or the world’s highest bungee jump into Storms River Gorge, Africa is a place worthy of exploration.

Shamwari - A Fun Family Safari 27 May 2013 by The Safari Co.
Shamwari Private Game Reserve was born from a dream to see the Eastern Cape's natural heritage be restored to resemble its former glory. This corner of Africa was known to be one of the richest wildlife areas in the continent! Shamwari means 'friend' in Shona and this piece of paradise is certainly that – a friend to the fauna and flora, as well as the history and cultural heritage that once existed in this part of South full article
