If you're looking for an end-of-semester break with attitude, an Africa holiday ticks all the right boxes. Get back to the basics on a camping safari in Kenya with full-on days and relaxed, fun-filled nights. Wake up at the cracker for a dawn game drive where you will be amazed at the beauty of the hippos and antelope as you watch them graze and drink at the waterholes. By night, you'll be sharing stories around a campfire and sleeping under the stars. Go on a gorilla trek through the dense bamboo growth of Rwanda's Parc National des Volcans where you can get up close and personal to these gentle mountain giants.
African holidays are all about adventure – zoom into Egypt for ancient wonders by day and a thumping club scene by night. You'll be gobsmacked at the awesomeness of the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza and when you need time to chill out from the heat, sit back and relax as you sail down the Nile on a felucca. Take a dip in the Red Sea – it's a mecca for scuba divers and you'll have a blast sandboarding down the desert dunes.
A holiday in Africa is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you'll never forget. Head to Morocco for some ripper ruins - the ancient ruins of Volubillis are said to be over 2,000 years old. A camel trek will lead you to the Sahara sand dunes where you can camp for the night in Berber tents. Budding mountaineers can climb Mount Toubkal in the high Atlas Mountains and marvel at the majestic Todra Gorges. These soaring canyons are one of the most magical sights in Morocco and a magnet for rock climbers. Where will your adventures take you?
