Home to the 'Big Five', this is safari territory, with game parks a go-go and everything from lions, elephants, hippos, giraffes, zebras and cheetahs to rare mountain gorillas and a teeming birdlife all setting up shop here. But Africa’s no one-trick pony, beyond the beauty of its landscapes lies a continent rich with stories of colonialism and slavery, the rise and fall of empires, powerful religions, apartheid and independence.
