Africa & Middle East Holidays
Explore our Africa travel and Middle East holiday destinations.
Africa travel is a big, beautiful continent and should be right at the top of your bucket list, a big, beautiful continent. It’s a landscape of contrasts, a canvas of colour, culture and wildlife, from heaving sand dunes and sprawling savannahs, to green-tinged highland, canyons, mountains, tropical rainforests and endless coastline.
These landscapes act as an epic backdrop to roaming wild beasts like lions, giraffes, elephants, hippos and rhinos, while the rich tapestry of traditions, ancient rites and music lives on in the villages today.
Like Africa, a Middle East holiday will stay with you long after you leave. One of the most soulful travel destinations in the world, this is the cradle of civilisation, an extraordinarily complex and beautiful land of mighty rivers, snow-capped summits, famed deserts and astonishing seas where cities are measured in millennia rather than years.
Middle East holiday destinations are where humankind first built cities and learned to write, the birthplace of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. History is its heart and soul, written on old Roman roads and carved into temples, while the bustling metropolises are among the oldest continuously inhabited cities on earth.
