Sum up Africa in a paragraph? Hakuna Matata. Positively massive by just about every measure, the sole thread that unites this diverse continent is the sheer diversity of experiences it presents to travellers. Arid deserts and towering peaks; wildlife, ancient civilizations; tiny villages and sprawling cities; cutting-edge modernity; teeming crowds and places so remote you won’t find another human being around for miles—Africa encompasses all this and so, so, so much more! Don’t expect to absorb it all; dive on in and let it seep into your skin.
