Uganda: Why Uganda will make everyone a birder
Despite Uganda’s relatively small size, its unique position – straddling the equatorial rainforests of central Africa and the savannahs of eastern Africa – means a rich portfolio of habitats and thus a profusion of species. What’s more, you don’t need to be on a specialist safari to see countless feathered delights, from the great blue turaco to the famed shoebill. Mike Unwin’s account of his visit will encourage even non-birders to appreciate the continent’s diverse birdlife.
Namibia: The secret south
Ann and Steve Toon set out on a road trip to the hidden gems of the country’s remote southern region, and discovered some weird and wonderful cultural and natural oddities.
South Africa: Holidaying in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela
It’s now been 100 years since the birth of one of the world’s greatest peacemakers, and over time a string of heritage centres, exhibitions, art trails, homestays and other cultural attractions have opened in celebration of his legacy. Emma Gregg lists the best places to enjoy and learn about contemporary South African culture through the lens of history.
Zambia: The marvels of bush chefs
How do bush chefs produce such amazing food even in the remotest of camps?

Malawi: Land of the lake
Lake Malawi is not only exceptionally beautiful but also offers a far wider variety of activities than any other part of the country, both in the water and on shore – from diving and snorkelling to birding and visiting fishing villages with a local guide.

Mozambique: What lies beneath
Using the Inhambane Province as an example, Struan Douglas describes Mozambique’s extraordinary marine life — from blue whales to manta rays — and reflects on what is being achieved already, and what more can be done, to protect it.
Tanzania: Saadani National Park – the coolest park you’ve never heard of?

Unexplored Africa: Liberia
Many people probably don’t know where this country lies on the map, let alone why one might wish to visit a country so heavily impacted by civil war and Ebola. Yet earlier this year, following the election of George Weah as president, Mark Stratton sensed that change was nigh and went to discover the country’s surprising appeal.
