With five visits to Africa I definitely have a few favourites. For an ‘out there’ trip join Tour d’Afrique and bike from Cairo to Capetown – or at least a few sections of it. Climb Kilimanjaro – one of the world’s seven summits and very doable for a fit hiker with acclimatization. No matter what country you visit try to include a safari; it’s an unforgettable sight to see the variety and numbers of wild animals and for the first time in your life you may feel your position on the food chain. Despite what you read, the people in Africa are warm and welcoming and the continent will win a place in your heart.
