backpacking in africa?

Africa is a continent with a vast array of different climates and stunning landscapes, from the magnificent Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe to the vast National Parks in Kenya, Africa has enough to attract a wide array of travellers. Outbacker Travel Insurance is available to offer you extra safety and security when travelling to or through Africa, covering key essentials including (but certainly not limited to) trip cancellation & curtailment, loss of personal luggage and belongings and also legal protection if you do manage to land yourself in hot water. We will also cover you for a range of sports and activities as well as various types of manual and non-manual work whilst abroad. You can easily add additional sports & activities cover to your policy if you are looking for an even more adventurous holiday to Africa.

So, why should I visit Africa?

The more important question is, why wouldn't you want to? Africa is a land of spectacular beauty and although it does have its 'no-go' areas, the vast majority of the continent is open for business. Many travellers who visit the African continent fall in love with its charm; whether that be the roaming African wildlife or the wide variety of indigenous tribes and local dialects that are spoken throughout the country.
