A family holiday in Africa is still one of the greatest adventures.
The world’s second largest continent is home to 54 countries, thousands of towns and cities and over 1 billion people speaking more than 2000 languages – at a conservative estimate.
It’s the land of the safari where the wildest wildlife roams within reach of a camera lens. But it’s also where you’ll find the immense Sahara Desert and 26,000km of coastline washed by the North and South Atlantic, the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean.
If all that isn’t remarkable enough, Africa lies right at the centre of the earth, sub-divided almost exactly in half by the equator and has sun, somewhere all year round.
So how do you choose your perfect family holiday on the complex continent that’s captivated travellers for centuries?
