If you’re after an unforgettable holiday filled with exciting adventures, then check out these amazing holiday destinations in Africa. The second-largest continent is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world and has so much to offer. From safaris to sand dunes, a trip to Africa this summer will provide you with incredible memories to last you a lifetime. 

South Africa

A stunning safari is one of the most popular things to do in South Africa. Home to the king and queen of the jungle, South Africa is the ultimate destination to get up close and personal with some of the most beautiful creatures of the jungle. 


Johannesburg is South Africa’s biggest city and one of the best places on the planet for a world-class safari experience. One of Africa’s biggest and best animal reserves is Kruger National Park. Situated in Northeastern South Africa, it has several available tours that allow you to witness wild animals in their natural habitat. It is home to an array of wildlife such as zebras, elephants, rhinos, leopards, lions and buffalos. Most tours to Kruger start in Johannesburg, so it is a great way to see the city and then experience a once-in-a-lifetime safari voyage.

Cape Town

South Africa isn’t just famous for its incredible safaris, it is also home to some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world with clear blue waters and perfectly crisp sand. One of the most famous beaches on the continent is Boulders Beach. It is a must-see in the area, not only for its blue sea or golden sand but for its inhabitants, penguins! That’s right, you can see the adorable birds soaking up the South African sun. These distinctive African penguins are the only ones on the entire continent and Boulders Beach offers one of the best views of these fascinating colonies.

Aside from the remarkable views of the penguin inhabitants, Boulders Beach is always clean and safe to visit as it falls under the Table Mountain National Park Marine Protected Area. It has gorgeous rockpools, ideal for kids, and ancient granite boulders to protect it from large waves and strong winds, making it an ideal swimming spot. The white, soft sand and warm waters along with the intriguing penguin colony, make Boulders Beach a dream travel destination in Africa.


Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, is another location in Africa for an authentic safari experience. One of the most famous spots to see amazing wildlife is Sheldrick Wild Trust, a rhino and elephant orphanage located on the edge of Nairobi National Park. Another favourite spot is the Giraffe Centre which can be found on the grounds of the world-famous Giraffe Manor. 4x4 safaris are a convenient way to explore Nairobi with accommodation pick-up and drop-off. Alternatively, you can jet off from the city’s Wilson Airport on a fly-in safari to your chosen destination on a remote landing strip for a more tailored adventure.



If you’re looking for a bit less safari and a bit more desert, then a trip to Egypt could be just the thing for you. Immerse yourself in the rich culture and ancient history of this exceptional country that has some of the most breathtaking historical sites in the world. Cairo and Luxor are two of Egypt’s most popular destinations, both offering timeless tombs, buzzing markets and river-front hot spots.


One of the biggest cities in the Middle East, Cairo, is an ancient city full of rich history and culture to be soaked up at every corner. It is also a modern metropolis filled with riverside restaurants, lively entertainment spots and grand bazaars for extra exploration. One of the main sites in Cairo is, of course, the Great Pyramids of Giza. This great wonder of the world is truly unmissable and can be appreciated in many ways. Ride horse or camelback through the sand dunes and get up close and personal with the remarkable landmarks for a truly unforgettable adventure. 


Situated on the east bank of the Nile in Southern Egypt, Luxor is a city of historical wonder and marvellous monuments. It is the most recognised city in Upper Egypt and is often referred to as the world’s greatest open-air museum. Travellers will go back in time by visiting the magnificent Luxor Temple and Karnack Temple, and the royal tombs of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. There is no better way to explore the wonders of the beautiful River Nile and get the best history lesson ever.


You can travel to all of these remarkable destinations via Heathrow, the UK’s most connected airport and home to the best airlines in the world. So, if you’re ready to embark on a journey of a lifetime, then book your tickets now!
