A very high proportion of visitors to Africa end up falling in love with this enchanting continent and look to return year after year.
It's great to return to favourite destinations, and every safari is always different even if you return to the same lodge - however, Africa is vast and diverse and there is so much more to see beyond the Big 5.
From tracking rhino on foot in Namibia to trekking to see mountain gorillas or exploring the less visited parts of South Africa, there are a wealth of places to explore and adventures to be had across this fascinating continent.
