4 Timeless Journeys in Africa
Experience unique animals, landscapes, and rituals.
Africa has much to offer the traveler, including the Pyramids at Giza, vanished Mediterranean empires, vibrant modern cities, and wildlife found nowhere else in the world. Explore more locations throughout Africa and other continents in the new book Timeless Journeys.
Pyramids at Giza, Egypt
The lone survivor of the original Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids at Giza have been astonishing visitors since they were first erected in the 26th century B.C.
More than eight centuries after it arose as a “Second Jerusalem” for worshippers of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, this northern Ethiopian city is still a place of pilgrimage and prayer. Pictured here is the three-day holiday of Timket, celebrating the baptism of Jesus with singing, dancing, and swimming.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Home to the world’s Great Migration, Africa’s greatest and most iconic game park is 5,700 square miles (14,760 sq km) of wild grassy plains, acacia forest, and volcanic highlands.
Victoria Falls, Zambia
Victoria Falls remains on record as the world’s largest curtain of falling water. The best place to view this natural spectacle is from Knife-Edge Bridge in Zambia’s Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
