The continent of Africa is impossible to define. Yes Africa is host to some of the most spectacular wildlife on this planet. And almost every country offers some amazing safaris. But the sheer drama of its geography, the music, the food, the history and stunning beaches should not be overlooked. Here we have a selection of some of our favourite destinations.  



Scenically, Morocco is incredibly diverse. Attractive fishing villages on the Atlantic coast, sweeping sand dunes in the Sahara, spectacular snow-capped Atlas Mountains, bustling souks and medinas and rural Berber villages clinging to mountain slopes. Morocco is suitable for long weekends, family adventures, active holidays and honeymoons. Accommodation varies from luxury hotels, intimate riads, desert camps and luxury villas.

Ribeira de Paul, Santo Antao

Cape Verde

Set in the Atlantic Ocean, over 300 miles from the west coast of the African mainland, this archipelago is famous as a year round destination for those looking to escape the British climate and find some sun. And while many come here to laze on the beautiful white sand beaches, those looking for more activity can explore mountains and volcanoes, follow ancient trails through farmland, kite-surf, dive, snorkel or cycle. Deep sea fishing and whale watching trips are available on some islands between February and May.


Completely enveloping The Gambia, Senegal has a year-round fabulously warm climate, beautiful beaches, French-influenced culture and good wildlife.  It is also one of Africa’s premier bird-watching destinations.  Stay in Eco-lodges or luxury boutique beach hotels.  The French may have been holidaying here for a while but it is still relatively unvisited by the British.  Senegal also combines really well with a holiday to the more visited but still tranquil Gambia. 

Sao Tome & Principe

Africa’s second smallest nation after the Seychelles, the former Portuguese colony of Sao Tome and Principe can be found on the equator, 225 km west of Gabon in West Africa. These islands are virtually untouched by tourism and if you choose to visit you will definitely feel you are on the road less travelled. Despite this, the islands have lovely boutique luxury hotel choices, plenty of activities and gorgeous landscapes and wildlife.
