Although Africa tends to be talked about as though it were one, large, homogeneous country, this couldn’t be any further from truth.
From the centuries-old mosques, desert cities, and ancient intellectual traditions of the North; the colorful cultures and extroverted personalities of the West; to the lush jungles, wide savannas, and untainted beaches and reefs of the East, each region possesses a character distinctly its own.
All Projects in Africa start at $500 for a 2-3 Week Project!
