Africa Culture & History

Africa has much to offer those interested in holidays with a strong element of cultural experience as well as fascinating historic sites to explore. Ethiopia for example is famed for its historic castles, monasteries and ancient churches, as well as some of the largest single stone obelisks in the world.

There are many ancient trading towns in East Africa including the World Heritage Site of Lamu Island in Kenya and Zanzibar’s spice capital, Stone Town. The history of the struggle against colonial rule is movingly brought to live in South Africa’s Battlefields in KwaZulu Natal, where local guides retell the stories of the Anglo-Zulu wars.

Elsewhere, visitors can visit key places in South Africa that define its struggle for freedom from apartheid. A short tour to see Oman’s forts and ancient hill villages is a fascinating addition to a beach break.
