For vast golden savannahs and the majesty of nature, look to Africa and her bucket list of charms. Start in South Africa to abseil down Table Mountain, swim with seals and paddle-board the Cape Peninsula (not to mention open-top game drives on the Eastern Cape). Or, for stirring landscapes that will leave you agape, set your sights on Tanzania. Take a walking safari through Serengeti National Park and marvel at the Big 5 in Ngorongoro Crater, topped off with a pitstop on the pristine beaches of Zanzibar.

Head north on this glorious continent to arrive in Egypt, with its ancient pyramids and sunset sailing on the Nile. Head to the left for the snake-charmers and storytellers of Morocco; a place of spice-infused souks and chilled Berber guesthouses in the hazy Atlas foothills. Climb to the peak of Mount Toubkal – North Africa’s highest mountain – or learn to surf on the Atlantic coast of Taghazout. Whether you’re searching for sunset camel rides in the Saharan desert or safari sundowners amid ambling giraffes, Africa is awash with jaw-on-the-floor moments. Explorers, buckle up: a trove of wonders awaits.
