Vacation rentals in Africa

Elegant residences

Africa has always fascinated for its nature and richness. Since the purpose of a trip is to get away from it all and enjoy the sun and the pleasures of life, Africa is THE destination to choose. This is a good thing because despite its economic boom, it is still easily affordable. And whether you choose Vacation rentals or sleep at home, by the sea, in the city or inland, you can't be disappointed.

All-comfort rentals

Wherever we go, we'll never find the same thing. Spacious villas set in the middle of lush gardens and with in-ground pools and air conditioning to fight against the heat. While the Internet and all modern household appliances are present inside, large bay windows open onto a terrace with a pergola. And depending on the region, the beach or animal reserve are only a few steps away!

Vacations in Africa

Location and orientation

An easily accessible continent

Whatever its destination, it is certainly available among flights departing from major airports in France. Two short hours to North Africa from Paris, but much more to go to the Cape of Good Hope. Very big advantage, there is little or no time difference, even if the night falls faster. However, it will be necessary to consider getting vaccinated against diseases such as malaria.

From the city to the savannah

Africa is certainly in the midst of a demographic boom, and it would be dangerous if its inhabitants had the consumption of an American. But its territory remains immense, as you can see from looking at a globe rather than a planisphere that expands the polar regions. The population is growing in some areas such as the Gulf of Guinea from Senegal to Gabon, leaving an almost empty space for wildlife. In terms of climate, the North is desert or very dry (Sahara / Sahel), while the Congo Basin and the Great Lakes are humid and green. Finally, South Africa is similar to the Mediterranean regions.

Travelers and activities

Africa for singles

Already in the 1970s, many people left to find love on the shores of Senegal. This inspired the film Les Bronzés. Even today, it is still possible to "enjailler" (the word comes from French-speaking Africa) in a tropical atmosphere, where everything is an aphrodisiac for the five senses. Perhaps the soul mate resides in a Venus with an ebony body or in a wrestling champion?

Africa for globe-trotters

Africa, the second continent on Earth with 30 million km², has enough space to offer an incredible diversity of climates, species, landscapes and peoples from North to South. Going on a transcontinental trek is a long journey, so it is better to go for a full year. Or do the Maghreb, then the Great Lakes, and finally the Kalahari. We can take the opportunity to do a good deed and participate here in the reforestation, or visit the village's school children there.

In South Africa, we speak Xhosa, a clique language unique in the world.

Top 5 things to do in Africa

1. Taste the culinary varieties

Okay, well, in Europe, you can easily buy so-called "exotic" products, but do you know how to cook them? And season them? It is by tasting a Moroccan chorba, an Ivorian placali with gumbo sauce, or a Kenyan ugali on the spot that you can ask your preparer for advice.

2. Express yourself through dance

Africa, the land par excellence of the life drive, reproduces natural and human rhythms into its music and dances. It's hard to resist the sound of the wild tam-tam or contemporary high-life, and not to get into a coupé-décalé or, like Johnny Clegg, a Zulu dance.

3. Being moved by biodiversity

Africa was full of species of all kinds. Unfortunately, human activity is gradually making them disappear. You might as well not waste time on a safari and approach (respectfully!) elephants, bonobos and lions in their natural environment, from Virunga Park to Serengeti.

4. Skiing on Kilimanjaro

And from the Serengeti, it only takes a few hours drive eastwards to climb what is actually three volcanoes culminating between 4000 and 5900 m. We can then ski or snowboard down his eternal snows, dear to Pascal Danel and which bring a little freshness to this tropical region.

5. Meet your distant cousins

And since we are there, we might as well share the culture of the Maasai people, who raise cattle less for their meat than for their milk and blood. This may explain the cultural omnipresence of red in clothes and hair. But let us not forget the Bushmen of Namibia and the Falashas of Ethiopia, who are said to be descendants of King David and the Queen of Sheba. It's hard to be racist and believe that all Africans are alike!
