Since the history of mankind began, Africa has always been steeped in great mystery, like a dangerous land where wild animals roam, where the jungles are thick and where uncivilized tribes either eat men or shrink their heads. It is no secret why the continent has earned the sobriquet “Dark Continent. " Today, African culture is as varied as the continent’s inhabitants. There are modern, glistening cities at one end and an explosion of nature and wildlife at the other. From North to South and West to East, the face and culture of Africa changes, like the lay of its land and its warm, soothing climate.
In terms of sheer diversity, Africa stands out among all other continents, which is why a vacation there can be a rich experience of what life has to offer, filled with a variety of sights and unexpected surprises. It hardly matters what you are looking for because Africa is sure to have it. There may be nothing better than a trip to Africa to fill that void of yearning and emptiness that you sometimes feel in your gut. Just imagine yourself in a South African safari, roaming the countryside and brushing elbows with the natives and the wildlife.
The image we have had of Africa as a land filled with lush jungles and animals roaming wild is still very much alive in today’s Africa. This is why the African safaris have had such an attraction to men for decades, because experiencing life in the jungles of Africa is a riveting sensation and awe-inspiring adventure that cannot be attained anywhere else in the world.
Live out your childhood fantasy of being up close to elephants and lions in the wild. Feel the thrill of moving deep into the African jungle and being engulfed by nature. To be sure, being part of a safari isn’t exactly “living in the wild" because the many game preserves and national parks that are scattered all across Africa offer excellent world-class accommodations. But nowhere else can you see nature this closely as in Africa.
You may opt to tour the impressive parks of Tanzania and Uganda which offer close views of the wildlife and a safe and happy return to the campsite at night. Or get a glimpse of the famed snow that covers Kilimanjaro mountain from the Serengeti National Park. Get close to the animals: hippos in Uganda, wild chimps in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and the gorillas of the Bwindi National Park.
And if you get tired of nature, try your luck at the many fine hotels and resorts in South Africa that can rival the best that Las Vegas has to offer. Go online and check out what Africa has to offer now. It’s a world of difference that can change your life.
