Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Africa.
Africa evokes a timeless wonder in most people. It feels as though a slice of time has been frozen just for the traveler in us to hark back on a past lost in time. It is vast and one can see clearly almost to the horizon.
Nowhere else can one see the migration of a million wildebeest. Of course, the view from a hot air balloon over the Masai-Mara makes it all the more spectacular. One can stay in the natural reserve and see lions, leopards, giraffes, rhino, elephant and zebra at very close range. There are open vans along with the driver who acts as the guide to ferry tourists to the watering holes of these animals. The Great Rift Valley is so huge, it’s mind-boggling.
Mount Kilimanjaro offers one a unique experience to hike up the world’s tallest freestanding mountain. Located in Tanzania, it will take 6 days to conquer. Anyone determined and fit can do it. Be warned though, it can’t be done in a pair of shorts, T-shirt and a couple of beers!
Zanzibar, with its incredible beaches, has history written all over it. Famed for its spices, it was a natural trading center throughout history. It was also an infamous place for slave trading.
To the north, the famed pyramids of Gaza transport one to the time of the Pharaohs. It is among the greatest architectural feats by man. It is the oldest tourist attractions in the world and dates back more than 5,000 years.
Marrakech in Morocco is a historical place and is quite fascinating with its souks. Though with its noise and pollution, it is an assault on the senses, it has its charm and is a lot of fun to visit.
