The historic heart of adventurous exploration, Africa has been the focus of many a celebrated tale, conjuring up delicious images of the wild unknown.

Today the continent, just as magnificent, has even more to offer the modern day traveller for its sheer size and diversity will appeal to all.

Nature lovers will witness the greatest wildlife show on earth by viewing the mighty wildebeest migration or by exploring the meandering waterways of the Okavango Delta.

History enthusiasts will relish the chance to view the Roman ruins of Leptis Magna and Sabratha in Libya or explore South Africa's battlefields whilst listening to spine-tingling stories from the Anglo-Zulu and Anglo-Boer wars.

For the more adventurous a gallop on horseback alongside gazelle, floating silently in a hot air balloon or trekking through the rainforest to seek out the elusive gorilla and chimpanzee will satisfy even the freest spirit.

And for those wanting a bit of peace and quiet a thousand deserted beaches on Africa's eastern coastline await...
