On the Somak blog, we like to enthuse about all things Africa.

We want you to see the continent at its best, so we head to the festivals you really shouldn't miss and try the food you simply have to taste. We tell you where we like to holiday with our families and seek out the secluded spots we love for a romantic break.

Don't just take our word for it either - we also ask local experts where their favourite beach spots are and the best countries to visit month by month, be it Rwanda in May for the mountain gorillas, New Year celebrations in South Africa or Namibia in March when the landscape is at its most lush.

There are reviews from our customers too. People like Jenny tell us why she had the most phenomenal trip, and Max tells us of his family holiday to Kenya. We compile top tips that we hope will make your trip even more memorable, like taking a boat to dine at Rock Restaurant in Zanzibar, finding the best diving spots in Mozambique.

Our blog is here to help you to get the most out of your Africa experience. We hope our passion inspires you to visit the bustling, bartering markets of Nairobi, piques your interest enough to see Ethiopia's Omo Valley and the lip-decorations of its ancient tribeswoman, or simply helps you take better wildlife shots with your camera.

Who knows? We might just inspire you enough to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
