Best cultural destinations in Africa
Where else in the world can you find a pride of majestic lions lazing around in a huge ancient crater than in Africa…? Not only this, but around the Ngorongoro Crater, you will find the traditional Masai people – East Africa is draped in this engrained culture of farming, traditional dress and a completely different way of life to learn about. Not only this, but one of the most ancient and isolated tribes in the world live on the Skeleton Coast in Namibia - a truly eye-opening experience not only made great from the culture of the people, but the eerie wilderness too. Africa’s culture is very much with its people and is still very much present in the midst of an ever changing world.

Best cultural destinations in South America
South America has so many diverse and interesting cultural points of interest. When thinking initially of South America, for many ancient Inca traditions spring to mind, and certainly no trip to Peru would be complete without a trek up the mysterious and enchanting Machu Picchu through the Sacred Valley of the Incas. However, aside from this, there are so many different aspects of South America which also make it a remarkable cultural destination. Rio carnival offers one of the most vibrant and exuberant displays of culture on the planet with its famous festival. Equally diverting but completely different is the cowboy experience in outback of Argentina, the Pampas. With such cultural intrigue and variety, South America has so much going on!
