Amazing places to travel to in Africa

Africa is a beautiful and lively place, and there are so many interesting places to visit. Here are the most amazing places that you should visit while you’re in Africa.

Masai Mara National Park, Kenya

The mass migration of the wildebeest in the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya is one of the most incredible scenes you’ll ever see. There are two million wildebeest, zebras and antelopes take part in the annual migration. And the Masai Mara National Park is a beautiful landscape, and somewhere that everyone who visits Africa needs to see while they’re there. You can take a Kenyan Safari trip while you’re there if you like. There’s nothing quite like seeing these animals in their natural habitat.

Fish River Canyon, Namibia

Only the Grand Canyon in America is a bigger canyon than Namibia’s Fish River Canyon. It’s a truly stunning natural wonder that’s carved into the Namibian desert. It’s been carved over the course of 500 million years. Nowadays, it’s a very popular hiking route. The trek takes roughly four days and covers 86 kilometers. It’s a difficult trek, but a very rewarding one once you complete it. There are lots of animals that you’ll see along the way, such as mountain zebras and wild horses.

Lagos, Nigeria

Lagos in Nigeria is the single largest city in Africa. If you want to visit one big metropolis while you’re in the continent, this is the one you should head for. It’s lively, and it’s noisy. It even has a great arts and music scene that is growing all the time. It’s a pretty mad and busy place, and there’s always something going on. You have to just jump into it and experience it to the max. It will get tiring, but it’s more than worth it. It’s definitely the best and most interesting place in Nigeria.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Standing at nearly 20,000 feet tall, Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive mountains in the whole world. And it’s definitely the highlight of any trip to Tanzania. If you have it in you to reach the top of the mountain, the view you get from up there is quite incredible. But you don’t have to climb the mountain to make visiting this part of Tanzania worthwhile. The area around the base of the mountain is home to some of the continent’s greatest reserves and wildlife parks. It’s somewhere you have to visit if you’re going to Africa.

The Great Pyramids at Giza, Egypt

The Great Pyramids are probably the most famous and popular landmarks in all of Africa. They do get busy as so many tourists visit them every year, but they’re still worth seeing. Even though everyone has seen a million pictures of them, they are always more impressive when you see them up close for the first time. They’re just a few kilometers south of Cairo, as is the great Sphinx. The history behind these landmarks is fascinating; they’ve been standing for thousands of years.
