What to do in Africa
As a tourist destination, Africa is a wealth of natural attractions. It is home to wild, almost unspoilt landscapes, from dry and rocky lands, to golden sand dunes and lush forests, enchanting beaches and savannahs, and plenty of wildlife you won’t find anywhere else. Your adventure already begins when you’re deciding where to go. And your greatest challenge is making sure you bring enough battery and storage to take as any photos as you want.
Eastern Africa has plenty of natural and wildlife attractions. It includes Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Somalia, Tanzania, and Uganda. Fly to Tanzania and marvel at Kilimanjaro. Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve has stunning landscapes. Laze around the white sand beaches in Lamu, Kenya, and Zanzibar. Fly to Madagascar and stand among the huge trees at the Avenue of Baobabs.
Central Africa includes countries like Angola, Chad, Cameroon, the Central African Republic or CAR, and Congo. Visit Manovo-Gounda St Floris National Park in CAR to see elephants, gazelles, cheetahs, leopards and more. Check out the beautiful biodiversity of Obo Natural Park. And challenge yourself to climb the mighty Mount Cameroon.
North Africa is a bit different from other parts of Africa, as the region displays an enchanting and eclectic mix of French and Arab charms. It includes Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, and Western Sahara. Check the Pyramids of Giza and Luxor in Egypt off your travel bucket list. See the world's longest river, the Nile, in the Sahara Desert. Fly to Morocco and visit the famous Casablanca and shop till you drop in Marrakech.
