    FAQ's of Africa

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The language difference is hardly an issue in African countries. One may encounter language barriers in remote places like game reserves. 

    Depending on your destination, your options may vary. For instance, it’s easier to find a five or four-star resort in a city than in the Sahara Desert. 

    Egypt, Morocco, South Africa, Kenya, Mauritius, and Namibia are popular countries to visit in Africa.

    Avoid traveling to countries with political issues or civilian unrest. Follow news updates and get travel insurance before visiting the continent. 

    While countries like Morocco or Egypt in northern Africa should be visited in the winter season, southern Africa should be visited in summer—when game viewing is at its best.
