The African continent. A singular destination featuring a rich tapestry of wildlife, untouched scenery and ancient traditions that endure to this day. Prepare to be transformed. Here are a few of the things you can look forward to when you book an African travel experience with Perlen Travel:
Splendid Natural Beauty
From the verdant beauty of the Cape Winelands and Garden Route in South Africa to the mysterious allure of Mozambique and wide expanses of Namibia and Tanzania, there is something for everyone on the African continent. As for a natural beauty goes, it’s hard to imagine anything more varied and intoxicating. African tours and safaris have become a travel staple for a reason – there’s nothing quite like immersing yourself in an environment where nature still reigns supreme.
DID YOU KNOW? There are 54 official countries on the African continent.
Sophisticated & Lively Cities
Europe, America and the East may be renowned for its buzzing metropolises, but Africa is not far behind. The future is embraced by the continent's citizens, who bring creativity and sophistication to its many urban centres and impressive cities, where the past is woven inextricably into the fabric of modern-day life. It’s in this contrast and juxtaposition of cultures that lies the most fascinating aspect of life in Africa – a world where often tumultuous past is never forgotten, but revered as a part of an exclusive lifestyle that embraces all forms of experience.
Ancient Customs & Traditional Experiences
However, the very reason why Africa is so high on the list of must-visit destinations of most seasoned travel enthusiasts, is that it is inexorably the cradle of humankind. When life started blooming on the planet many eons ago, this is where it all began. Walking back in tribal footsteps and learning more about the rural way of life is an eye-opening experience, no matter which African country you visit.
DID YOU KNOW? The San people of southern Africa, who have lived as hunter-gatherers for thousands of years, are likely to be the oldest population of humans on Earth, according to the biggest and most detailed analysis of African DNA.
Unrivalled Wildlife Encounters
From watching epic battles between predator and prey in the Okavangoto seeing the Big Five in the Kruger National Park or free diving along South Africa’s gorgeous West Coast, Africa holds countless wildlife encounters that underpin the continent's treasure trove of wildlife. It is here, in their natural habitat, where these majestic beasts are best seen, revered and understood.
DID YOU KNOW? The Big Five include the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo.
