Black trees silhouetted in the setting sun, undulating heat waves hovering above the red, dusty ground, a herd of cape buffalo suddenly crashing through the bush. 

To experience the beauty and rawness of Africa's nature first-hand contact Designer Active Holidays!


This ancient land of wild beauty and adventure is just waiting to be explored, and for active travellers, nothing can really compare to the experience that is Africa. Only here can travellers enjoy the breadth of natural wonders and once-in-a-lifetime experiences that make Africa unique. 

In Africa, you can visit the only remaining example of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Great Pyramid at Giza.  Here you can swim in nature’s perfect infinity pool, Devil’s Pool at the top of Victoria Falls. And, only here can diving fanatics delve into the waters of Tanzania’s Pemba Island, which is bursting at the seams with coral reefs, mangroves and thousands of colourful inquisitive fish.


No African holiday would be complete without a safari, which is the Swahili word for journey. Each safari takes you deep inside the habitat of the “Big Five” game animals: the elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, and buffalo. The term was originally coined by trophy hunters who deemed these five animals as the five hardest to hunt on foot.  But today, these are some of the most spectacular animals to track and see on safari!


While the typical African adventure might seem tailored for adults, it can be a child’s playground as well.  The whole family can go trekking up Mt. Kilimanjaro or learn to windsurf in the calm, warm Red Sea off the coast of Egypt. Teens will love the excitement of sand boarding monster dunes in Namibia and game viewing from the back of an African horse in Kenya.
