The snap gap is back, breaking from our studies and even careers to travel for anything from a few weeks to a few months now the norm. With more of us ditching “things” in favour of meaningful experiences, transformational travel is expected to trend in 2018 – and Africa does life-changing travel like no other continent.
If you’re looking to master personal challenges this year why not, book a seat on our 17-day Zanzibar to Kilimanjaro the itinerary including a chance to scale the roof of Africa via the Marangu route. While taking the easiest and most well-known path will give you an excellent chance of achieving summit’, the feat will really test your mental mettle as well as the physical, so you need to make sure your stamina and endurance levels are up to the mark.
Want to feel a sense of achievement? Travel in itself is a major accomplishment, so long-term travel can be a real game-changer for your psyche. Our 58-day Ultimate African Overlander will take you across eight countries in Southern and East Africa; gorilla trekking through Uganda’s forested undergrowth, climbing Dune 45 in Sossusvlei (Namibia home to some of the world’s highest dunes), and practising your desert survival skills with the San Bushmen in Botswana, just some of the travel goals you can fulfil on the 58 day tour.
Any trip to Africa will leave you in complete awe. From appreciating the sun setting over the ocean from the shores of Zanzibar (savour the Spice Island in our latest YouTube video) to marvelling at the vast migratory herds thundering across the plains of the Maasai Mara – taking the time to focus on the beauty of the world around us is a vital first step on the road to happiness.
