Africa is a continent like no other, and its kaleidoscopic countries confirm it. Jungle and desert. Fishing villages and blockbuster cities. Thousands upon thousands of years of history and perhaps even more wildlife. Take the adventure of a lifetime and discover everything from savannah and safaris to winelands and wilderness on these top TRIPS by Culture Trip.
1 . Pyramids, Temples and the Nile: the Ultimate Egypt Experience

Seeing the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx will be mummified into your memory forever. These incredible structures alone are reason enough to set a course for North Africa, but they aren’t the only big-ticket attractions awaiting your arrival. Check off a bucket-list trip with this 10-day small-group tour of Egypt, including insider-only experiences such as a felucca sailboat ride and a Nubian dinner. From the shores of the Nile to the Valley of the Kings, you’ll spend every day spellbound by the iconic sights in this country.

2 . Arabian Nights: the Complete Morocco Experience

Dust off your copy of One Thousand and One Nights for this 13-day adventure through Morocco, which lets you leaf through the pages of this country from cover to cover.

Sounds like a journey worth writing about – and for the storybook ending? Getting lost in the flavours of Marrakech.

3 . Morocco: From the Atlas Mountains to the Atlantic Surf

Ask anyone who’s ever been to Morocco, and they’ll tell you that one visit is not nearly enough. Hiking the craggy Atlas Mountains is just as enticing as catching waves in the Atlantic. After all, who says you can’t do both – and then some? Here’s your chance to spend six days trekking across Morocco with a small group of like-minded explorers. You’ll venture from the ocean to the mountains, admire the architectural masterpieces in Marrakech and visit a traditional Berber village in between.

4 . Cape to Cape: Discover South Africa’s Wildlife, Winelands and Garden Route

Chasing adrenaline rushes in South Africa is a must, but no one should forget to add a little downtime to their trip across the tip of the continent. The lush valleys of the Cape Winelands deserve hours of sitting, sipping and savouring. Don’t worry, though, because you won’t miss a moment when you join this 10-day trip through South Africa. Between spotting the Big Five in the private game reserve of Amakhala to hiking up Table Mountain, you’ll be happy for the rest only wine can bring in Stellenbosch.

5 . From the Rift Valley to Maasai Mara: the Ultimate Kenyan Safari Experience

Africa guidebook covers often feature Kenya, where you can spot wildlife on safari drives in the Great Rift Valley and meet Maasai communities in the Mara. This seven-day overland tour begins as you venture from Nairobi into the wilderness of Aberdare National Park, home to the second-largest population of rare black rhinos in Africa. After two days of game drives, the group travels to the shores of Lake Nakuru, a high-altitude lake in the Rift Valley that turns pink with flocks of flamingos. In the Loita Hills, you’ll meet with Maasai people, who’ve lived here for millennia, before heading into the Mara in search of the Big Five – lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalo and elephants.
