  • About Africa

    • If Toto’s Africa is your late-night jam and your favourite Disney movie is without a doubt The Lion King, then Africa is definitely your dreamland destination.
    • Whether you wanna get your David Attenborough on in the Serengeti, hit the highs of Mt Kilimanjaro or cruise the Okavango Delta in Botswana, this super massive continent has an adventure to suit every switched-on traveller.
    • So jump on a Geckos Africa trip and feel the might of Victoria Falls, sun bake by Lake Malawi, hang out with Maasai warriors, eat lunch with the wild gorillas of Uganda and Rwanda, sip on top-notch wine in South Africa and let your worries wash away to the sounds of safari. Hakuna matata, guys, hakuna matata.
    • Spreading the power:
      South Africa has three different capitals – Pretoria (administrative) Bloemfontein (judicial) and Cape Town (legislative).
    • Elephantasia:
      There are more than 13,000 elephants in Kruger National Park.
    • Can you feel the love tonight:
      Serengeti National Park was the inspiration for The Lion King.
    • Thick hair:
      The hair that makes up a giraffe’s tail is about ten times thicker than the average strand of human hair.

      Lions are the national animal of Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, England, Ethiopia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Singapore.

    Overall an enjoyable trip with a very helpful and friendly guide Julius. Tour itself was well structured, meals were quite decent and it was a nice end to the trip to have some relaxation in Zanzibar. Alot of early starts which was to be expected, and some work relating to putting up/down tents & cleaning duties which is explained in the tour outline but I found that it actually helped foster group camaraderie. Would definitely do another tour like this again.
