Ethiopia

In a country this diverse, there is an endless amount of adventure excursions, sightseeing, and cultural activities to experience. Ethiopia’s dramatic landscapes are full of mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and arid deserts, including the Danakil Depression, one of the world’s most remote spots and a part of the Earth that remains geologically unstable and in constant flux. To the south, the Simien Mountains National Park and Bale Mountains National Park are ideal for trekking and spotting animals and birds that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.

  • Rwanda

    Rwanda is a verdant, landlocked country in East Africa known as the “Land of a Thousand Hills” for its fertile rolling landscape. Most of the countryside is dotted with small farms, but there are areas of rugged mountains extending from the volcanoes of the northwestern portion of the country. It is here that Rwanda’s leading attraction is found: Volcanoes National Park, home to half of the world’s gorillas still living in the wild.

  • Seychelles

    Seychelles may be the only country described exclusively in hyperbole. “Paradise”, “Garden of Eden” and “spectacular” seem to be among the most common terms employed, and typically the focus of these descriptions centers on the physical beauty of the islands: the multiple blue hues reflecting out of the water, the distinctive granite rock formations and the white, clean beaches.

     

    But there is much more to Seychelles than first meets the eye. A natural wonder, unspoiled and still untamed, yet delightfully charming. It is the perfect retreat – an add-on option after a dusty safari or a simple romantic escape in paradise for two.

     

    Attracting those seeking water activities like scuba, snorkeling and fishing – and those who seek solitude with nothing better to do than curl up in a beachside hammock and take another nap – the Seychelles is an island paradise that is utterly delightful.

  • Tanzania

    It is said that Tanzania is one of the last great places left on earth. The plains of the Serengeti stretch out before you and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro rises like a beacon on the horizon. Tanzania’s climate certainly lends itself to the idealists’ dream of this country with sun-drenched days and cool nights, and for lovers of safari, there is nothing quite like it anywhere in the world.

  • Uganda

    Uganda is a unique experience for those searching for an uncommon adventure and go beyond game viewing from a four-wheel drive vehicle. Most travelers to the country come for the gorilla trekking, which has long been considered a highlight, and with good reason. Outside the gorilla safari, other major draws of Uganda include birding, trekking the forest reserves, and visiting the Nile’s source at Lake Victoria in the southern part of the country. A landlocked country in East Africa, Uganda shares its borders with Kenya, the Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Tanzania. Due to the large number of ethnic groups thrown together in the former colonial territory, Ugandan culture is remarkably diverse.
