Africa. It’s on every traveller’s to-do list, but on very few “done” lists. This is a land where the unusual is commonplace and a chance encounter can change you forever. The national parks and game reserves here are so world-famous they’re known by their first names: Kruger, Chobe, Tarangire. 2012 finds us expanding our reach in Africa by digging deeper into Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa’s fabled Garden Route. Africa really is like nowhere else on Earth. Prepare to be amazed.
