Backpacker Tours in Africa

Adventures in Africa

The backpacker tours you can do on your gap year in Africa are almost as diverse as the continent itself. Africa in general is often simplified as one place in the world's press (and certain charity singles) and the whole continent has something of a bad reputation, but as anyone who has travelled there will tell you, the situation is far more complex than we're sometimes led to believe.

Many African backpacker tours are focussed on the  extraordinary diversity of wildlife, which includes the classic Big 5 - elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo - and then some. You can also join more culturally focused tours, which take you into the heart of traditional tribes and communities, like the Masai Mara in Kenya.

While some countries, like Mali, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Liberia, are currently off limits, most countries are perfectly safe and have been for years. These include places like South Africa, Tanzania, Ghana and Morocco.
