Cultural Gems in Africa with Elegant Resorts

This vast continent of culture resonates with ethnic diversity. With over fifty nations sharing this ancient land, Africa is a fascinating melting pot of people, sharing a complex history heavily influenced by migration, trade, mining and European settlers. Rich with natural resources, Africa attracts many visitors and has an array of experiences to offer. From the sweeping desert, colourful souks, sacred mosques and ancient medinas of Morocco in the north, and the vast open plains of east Africa, to the stylishly modern cosmopolitan city of Cape Town on the southern coast (and all the mining towns and tribal villages in between), there is a cornucopia of cuisine to sample, art to admire and culture to embrace. Far more than simply a city and safari option for travellers, Africa and its islands boast ancient San Bushman rock art, superb flora and fauna, astonishing wildlife, fascinating historic sites and beautifully remote beaches.

One of the best ways to experience this great land is to journey through it by luxury train or to take a river cruise. Rovos Rail operates a superb service, dedicated to a bygone era and which captures some of the best scenery whilst incorporating some fascinating land experiences. Visit the dramatic Victoria Falls in Zambia, see abandoned mining towns, be guided through the battlefields of Zululand or venture to see the pretty Dutch houses within the manicured vineyards of Franschhoek. Alternatively, take a cruise along the mighty River Nile in the north and see the ancient treasures of Luxor, or perhaps glide along the verdant Okavango Delta in Botswana and photograph the rich birdlife. For those seeking a little more adventure, perhaps fly to Windhoek, in Namibia, for a cultural visit to the remote Himba tribe and photograph its ancient and epic sand dunes, visit a Maasai tribe in Kenya or perhaps even enjoy a horse-safari in Tanzania. There is even the temptation to extend your journey further with a trip to the beautifully remote beaches of Mozambique or Zanzibar – with its fascinating Swahili coastal trading post of Stone Town.
