Africa Holidays with Aspen Travel

Filled with exotic wildlife, tribal villages and sandy beaches, Africa is a unique continent that is desperate to be explored. There are a total of 54 countries that make up Africa, each owning a strong cultural heritage and unique experiences.

If you’re one for wildlife, you can enjoy a game drive on one of Africa’s undeniably breathtaking safari parks where you can go in search of the famous Big Five; Giraffe, Rhino, Leopard, Lion and Buffalo. For the ultimate African experience, a holiday to South Africa will include game drives, wine tours and a chance to really taste some of the best cuisines Africa has to offer.

Holiday types in Africa


Game drives, luxury spa lodges and the heat of the equator all in one holiday – that’s exactly what you get on a safari holiday. Africa’s iconic safari parks; Masai Mara, Kruger, Chobe, the Serengeti & more each are home to the Big Five and you will come close to some of the world’s most feared predators on a safari. Of course, when you’re not out on a game drive, you may be in your luxury room enjoying the equatorial African heat.


Africa isnt just your place to see the Big Five, it also shares its coastlines with the Indian Ocean a part of the world synonymous with luxury beach holidays. This means countries like Zanzibar, Mozambique and Kenya are graced not only with scorching temperatures but some of the most Instagram worthy beaches in the world. Off Africas mainland, you may be familiar with the Seychelles Archipelago, if not let us introduce you to this new Club Med Resort.


Taking an escorted in Africa is in most cases the best way to explore the Cradle of Humankind as you will not just visit one beach, or one safari park for example, depending on the duration of your escorted tour, you may see 2 or 3 of Africas many safari parks or even take time in your trip to discover some of Africas hidden gems. You will be directed by an expert tour guide throughout your trip, who will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
