Explore Africa with Avis

There are more flights to Africa from Europe than from any other continent. Popular holiday destinations such as Egypt, Morocco, Cape Verde, & South Africa are well-served from Europe's major cities, even with discount and charter airlines.

Africa has 54 sovereign countries – the most on any continent – and is the second largest continent in terms of both land area and population. Africa is bounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, by the Red Sea to the northeast, and by the Indian Ocean to the southeast. Africa is a vast continent spanning over 8,000 km (5,000 mi) north to south and 7,500 km east to west (not including islands) and contains a wide array of peoples, skin colours, religions, and cultures.

Africa contains the world's longest river – the 6,650 km long Nile River running from Burundi to Egypt – while the Congo River in the DRC is the second largest in terms of discharge as well as the deepest with a depth of over 230 m (750 ft) in some spots.

Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro is the world's tallest free-standing mountain at 5,890 metres. Djibouti's Lake Assal is the second lowest point on Earth, the saltiest lake outside Antarctica, and one of the hottest places on Earth. While the first activity most people associate with Africa is safaris, there are endless possibilities for adventure.

You can purchase crafts in markets, venture into the Sahara, visit pygmy villages, hike through jungle to watch gorillas, relax on tropical islands in the Indian Ocean, snack on exotic treats, travel down a river in a dugout "pirogue", travel across savannah on a colonial-era railway, and much more.
