From safaris to hot air balloon rides across desert plains, there are a number of ways to enjoy Africa's spectacular landscapes and versatile wildlife. Adventurous travelers will feel at home across the continent, but there are things to do in Africa that appeal to an average tourist and even families traveling with children. Visitors can explore a staggering diversity of indigenous and exotic plants at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden without having to go out on safari, or catch a glimpse of the "big five" at Idube Game Reserve. Boasting a variety of shops and restaurants, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront offers a break from Africa's wild side, while Egyptravel 4 you provides insight into the "Land of Pharaohs."
