Ghana: A New King in Ghana
In April, the Ashanti celebrated the coronation of a new ruler, in a ceremony as rich in history and tradition as it was in colour. Story by Bob Burch.
Kenya: Birds in Paradise
The sight of thousands of flamingoes on Kenya's Lake Nakuru - once described as "the world's most fabulous bird spectacle" - may be the focus of a visit to the National Park, but is this the only reason to visit? David Round-Turner suggests a long stay will be generously rewarded.
Zimbabwe: The Cry of the Leopard
Too often, demands from tourists conflict with those from the local populations and environmental conservationists. However, an increasing number of tourism operations are trying to achieve a balance. Travel Africa visited a new project in Zimbabwe's lowveld to see if a win-win situation can be reached.
Botswana: Close Encounters in the Delta
Do you see yourself venturing close to Africa's wildlife on horseback? As John Ruler discovered on a horse safari in Botswana's Okavango Delta, its one of the safest ways to see game - and fully appreciate the scenery.
Malawi: Legendary Liwonde
Malawi's Liwonde National Park has earned a reputation among its visitors far exceeding expectations. Lee Karen Stow made the journey to this small reserve to find out why.
Ethiopia: Marching to Magdala
A seven-ton mortar stands atop a remote plateau, a solitary testament to one of the most unusual battles in Ethiopia's colonial history. Richard Snailham made the intriguing journey into the country's past.
South Africa: The Wetter the Better - on the Orange River
The many moods of the Orange River will thrill and exhilarate the most intrepid traveller. As South Africa's largest river, it journeys through wide ranging scenery best appreciated from the safety of a canoe. Carrie Hampton took to the water to experience it for herself.
Uganda: A Royal Outing
Queen Elizabeth National Park has always been regarded as Uganda's flagship reserve - spectacular scenery complemented by abundant game and diverse bird life. But is this reputation really deserved? Claire Foottit investigates.
South Africa: Saving the Cranes
They are an emblem of the Zulu royal household in South Africa, and the Blue crane is also that country's national bird.
Tanzania: A Timeless Land
A tract of land approximately twice the size of Denmark and boasting a wide range of habitats, Tanzania's Selous Game Reserve is home to more than a million animals - and only a handful of tourist lodgings.
Zambia: Into the Chief's Domain
As tourists' fascination with local African cultures continues to increase, a novel tourism experience has been established near Victoria Falls, in Zambia. Now, you can spend a night in a traditional village, modified slightly for international visitors. Story by Mary Johns.
