The continent of extremes
The saying goes: 'to see Africa is to see the world with the lid off'. Home to the human species, to the world's largest desert, and to a language spoken by nearly 170 million, it is a continent of extremes: extremely large, extremely dry, extremely poor, and extremely young. So young, in fact, that half the continent still haven't reached their 25th birthday.
The mystique and intrigue of Africa deserves the spotlight it's currently getting, as it has become a backpacker favourite once again, satisfying the traveller with the biggest views, wildlife struggling to avoid the poachers eye and music. Africa is the place to be.
Take The Leap to Africa and you could find yourself white water rafting down the Orange River and searching for leopards in Namibia, sailing to find remote communities in Madagascar or scuba diving off the South African coast.
Just remember once you've stepped foot in Africa, you will pin part of your heart to the ground and will be sure to return. Just so you know.
