Are you looking for adventure? There are fewer places on earth that are better suited to raw adventure than Africa. As Africa is the second largest continent in the world only to Asia, it comes as no surprise that it has such a vast array of activities to offer the world. Whether you are looking for an African Safari or whether you are looking for an extreme sports trip to Africa, the continent has it all. Africa has long been famous for its safaris and now as more and more African nations open up, a much wider diverse range of safari is being offered from the standard 4X4 safaris in and out of parks to the much more unusual walking safaris. The accommodation in Africa in most of the National Parks is also second to none including the Sabora Camp or any of the Mara Camps. They make the holiday totally worthwhile. Although a safari is the done thing in Africa some people travel to the continent for something completely different.
Many people travel to Africa with the sole goal to make it to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. People from all corners of the globe flock to Tanzania every year to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Reaching the summit is a feat in itself with a reported 50% of people aiming for the summit having to turn back for a variety of different reasons. I believe its stats like this that bring more people in to take on the challenge to reach Uhuru Peak. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and is a part of the 7 summits challenge which includes the 7 highest peaks in the world and is only attempted by some of the best mountaineers in the world.
If extreme sports is right up your street then you need to make sure you head to Zambia which is known as the extreme sports capital of Africa. If bungee jumping, white water rafting and canyon swinging are your thing then Victoria Falls is most certainly the place to come for all you adrenaline junkies.
