Less Obvious Africa
Less Obvious Africa

Africa is all but synonymous with adventure, yet look beyond the tried and tested safaris of Tanzania, Kenya, and South Africa and there is a world of unusual habitats, rare species and exclusive safari experiences to discover. Lock eyes with a lion, come face to face with a mountain gorilla or hear the bellow of an elephant in a corner of Africa that is less than obvious and even more extraordinary.
