While safaris are of course centered around Africa’s wilderness areas, cities can add diversity to an itinerary and contribute greatly to the quality of your experience. And invariably your international flights will take you in and out of a hub city, which is your opportunity to recover from your travels and also perhaps to get to know the contemporary city life of the country you’re visiting. Cities are a showcase of modern Africa and a great place to get in touch with the latest in food, art, and entertainment. For many travelers, we highly recommend extended stays in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Nairobi, Stone Town (Zanzibar), Arusha, Kigali, Addis Ababa, Windhoek, and more.
