Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa is the place to be if you want to experience raw nature.  It is home to a large variety of destinations, each of which with something unique to offer.  Some, like South Africa, get more attention than others, but this part of the world is so diverse that it is worth exploring more than one destination!

Some of the destinations can be dangerous and others are simply not very accustomed to tourists which can make it difficult to travel there so it’s important to do your research ahead of time and make sure that you stay safe and that you’re prepared for your trip.  Plan well and you will create memorable experiences!
