We have loved this vast and diverse continent since the moment our boots first kicked through African soil. Experiencing the magnitude of nature and the overwhelming warmth of its cultures has forever changed us. We've hiked on Mt Kenya, shared a campfire with Kalahari Bushmen, sailed the Nile to the tombs at Abu Simbel, steamed in the hammam of an Atlas Mountain kasbah and sipped sundowners on Lion's Head. We've also had to explain to a stern customs officer how a monkey chewed our passports.  If you are up for the extraordinary, Africa is the destination for you.
