The best once-in-a-lifetime experiences in Africa

The wonders of Africa come in grand proportions – think the expansive Namib desert, the mighty Victoria Falls, towering Mount Kilimanjaro, and the huge scale of the Serengeti migration. So it’s little wonder that for many travellers, Africa presents a dream destination for epic once-in-a-lifetime holidays. At Lightfoot Travel experts, we know how to create a bespoke itinerary that ticks off all the items on your Africa travel bucket list.

Journey to the heart of Africa by way of stirring wildlife safaris. Go gorilla tracking in Rwanda, lion and rhino spotting in Botswana, and whale watching in South Africa, then watch the great migration of zebras and wildebeests in Kenya.

Along the way, marvel at natural wonders like the Sossusvlei sand dunes in Namibia, the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, and the pristine marine reefs off Mozambique, while getting to know the cultures, ancient customs and traditions of the native tribes.
