Africa is about epic journeys, walking in the footsteps of explorers, majestic landscapes and the fascinating cultures - and it screams out adventure.
On foot, on top of a camel, in a canoe or gazing into a fire, far away from a lodge and vehicles, are simple pleasures which reveal the real essence of Africa. From gliding down the Zambezi to horse riding
across the Okavango, quad-biking to camp in the centre of a salt pan, or a mini-escape to a remote ranch. It does not have to be about the adrenalin rush... but it can be.
Opt to walk or even ride between camps, spending a few nights in the bush en-route.
The easiest ways to inject a slice of adventure - swop your fluffy pillows for a night fly camping.
