200,000 years ago in Africa, human life was born. Today, this vast continent is as significant as ever.
On the continent where human life originated, where the jungle steams and the savannah sprawls, there’s a heritage that spans centuries. It’s in the might of Victoria Falls and the passages of Orange River. It’s in the views of Mt Kilimanjaro looming over the Serengeti, where the big five game roam among their human guardians… and hunters. It’s hiding with the mountain gorillas, shy in the emerald forest. But most of all, it’s in the colours and cultures of this great place, from the living voodoo cults in Ouidah to the lip-disk Mursi tribesmen.

Why we love Africa
Get right up close to southern Africa's magnificent wildlife. Watch the world’s largest elephants bathe in Botswana’s Chobe River, stalk giraffes and zebras on game drives through Namibia and catch a glimpse of the endangered African wild dog in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Sample exquisite food and fine local wine in the culinary epicentre of Cape Town. Set to the backdrop of Table Mountain, this is one of the most beautiful cities in the world
See the diverse tribal cultures of Ethiopia, which have remained untouched by globalisation for thousands of years. Ethiopia is also home to some of the oldest evidence of human existence on the planet
Trace the origins of Voodoo through the distinct cities and West African landscapes, to its heartland in the tiny nation of Benin. It’s thought that up to 40 per cent of the local population adhere to the Voodoo religion in some form
Trek through Rwanda’s isolated Virunga Mountains in search of gorilla families. While the hike can be challenging, spending time in the quiet presence of these elusive creatures is a profoundly rewarding experience
Morocco has the wonderful power to ‘transport’ dip into tangled alleyways in the ancient medinas of Fez and Marrakech, where the stalls are arranged by craft. Overlaid with the pungent aroma of nearby tanneries, it could be any year, any century

What travellers are saying about the African region
Highlights of Ethiopia, December 2017
We travelled in late January and while daytime temperatures were acceptable, the country was dry and bare, with lots of dust on unsealed roads. Our guide suggested after the wet season in September/October would give a very different view of the country. The places visited provided a potted history of this old land and a chance to see change in action. Despite the rating given to the trip, the locations visited are all above 2000m so a reasonable level of fitness is essential to undertake the planned activities.

Kruger & Cape Town Experience - Independent, January 2018
Peregrine's independent travel took away the headaches of booking hotels and transport and added the luxury of personal service. I am a believer.

Morocco Explorer, December 2017
Perfect weather, enjoyable company. Our guide Yahya was exemplary, informative and couldn't have been more helpful. Also our driver Lahcen was outstanding, making the bus travel very comfortable. We recommend this trip to anyone who wants an overview of Morocco.

Classic Morocco, December 2017
I enjoyed all the places we visited on the Classic Morocco tour though the medinas of Casablanca, Fes and Marrakech are now all quite touristy. Highlights were an unscheduled visit to the local market in Azilal and that it was snowing when we stopped in Ifrane. We toured Volubilis in the pouring rain but that only made the mosaics more vibrant. Had a great holiday!
