10 Amazing Places in Africa
With some of the most stunning natural spaces, cities, towns, mountains, and deserts, the African continent is home to the Big Five, the huge natural predators we all see on TV. Whilst safaris are commonplace here, there are countless other spots to head to, but the sheer size of it can make it hard to narrow down your choices. Luckily for you, we’ve put together 10 of the most beautiful places and experiences to visit in Africa. Which will you head to first?
South Africa - Table Mountain
Tanzania's Great Migration
Morocco - Djemaa el-Fnaa in Marrakesh
There is no place more iconic in terms of African culture than Morocco’s stunning city of Marrakech. The busiest public square is called Djemaa el Fna, where you can see snake charmers, dancers, listen to music, and watch authentic daily life going on around you. It’s a fantastic spot to visit, and you can also head into a traditional souk and try your hand at haggling for some souvenirs to take home. Of course, this square is also famous for its delicious and very cheap street food, which will leave your taste buds begging for more.
Kenya - Masai Mara National Reserve
Namibia – Spitzkoppe (Namib Desert)
Namibia is mostly desert, but as you venture into the Namib Desert itself you will find something quite special – the Spitzkoppe. This is a group of ‘mountains’ made of granite which reach a huge 5900 feet and seem to arise out of nowhere. They are amazing to see in person, and are a true hotspot for bird watchers, those who love to watch the stars, and anyone who likes climbing. The feel of being in the desert is also like nothing else you can imagine.
Zambia & Zimbabwe - Victoria Falls
Located in both Zimbabwe and Zambia, Victoria Falls are one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and are the largest waterfalls on the planet. That description in itself should have you heading there quickly! Victoria Falls were discovered back in 1855, and are known by several names locally. If you’ve ever seen Niagara Falls in person, be prepared to go one better, because the flow of water here is more than what you would have seen in Canada, and the nature around it ten times more mind-blowing too.
Namibia – Sossusvlei Dunes
Egypt - Pyramids of Giza (Cairo)
Morocco - the Sahara Desert Sand Dunes
These are just ten places to put on your African bucket list, with countless more besides.
