A land of contrast
This vast and diverse continent, stretching from shores of Mediterranean to the Cape of Good Hope and encompassing the world’s largest desert and one of its most extensive rainforests, is the adventurer’s last frontier. Africa is a land of contrasts: the stunning oases and barren mountains of the Sahara desert, the inspiring beauty of snow-capped Kilimanjaro rising from the East African plateau, the lush and mist-covered volcanoes and lakes of the Rift Valley, colourful tribal people and the lure of ancient Egypt. Perhaps nowhere in the world will you find such a variety of cultures, vistas, contrasts and contradictions, cities (ancient and modern), and roaming big game.
Travelling in Africa is certainly no package tour. It requires determination, patience and stamina. Always remember to respect other people’s customs and sensibilities, and you will always have a friend. This continent and its people have a great deal teach and offer to the other people of the world. Treat it and them with respect. Africa offers everything you could possibility conceive of. The possibilities are endless.
