Top 4 Places To Visit During An African Holiday
As one of the most interesting continents in the world, it’s odd that more people don’t choose to travel around Africa when they take a long holiday. Many spend months driving around and visiting all the states of America, so doing the same in an area that takes up almost six percent of the earth’s surface should be just as appealing, right? Well, don’t worry if you aren’t in agreement yet because I intend to spend the next few minutes highlighting some of the sights you might be able to see, and that is sure to bring you round to my way of thinking.
So, without further delay, here are the top 5 places you must visit when spending a few weeks traveling around Africa…
1 – The Pyramids
Although many of the relics are now housed in museums all over the world, the pyramids still stand tall in the Egyptian desert, leaving all who encounter them completely breathless. Most people don’t realise there are well over 100 pyramids in this country, so don’t worry too much about heading to the main tourism hubs. You’ll be able to book tours from all major cities to see your constructs of choice, and with over 8000 years of history behind them, you’re guaranteed to learn something new.
2 – Mount Kilimanjaro
Heading south, you’ll soon come across the little known about the country of Tanzania, which is where the largest mountain in Africa is located. Nicknamed “the roof of Africa” by western explorers a few hundred years ago, it’s easy to see why they chose such a name. This mountain is like no other I’ve ever seen, and it rises up into the heavens way past the cloud-line, meaning the views from the summit are to die for. Anyone wishing to climb Kilimanjaro should definitely book through a reputable tour provider, because the sheer size of this thing makes it a rather daunting solo trek.
3 – The Congo Jungle
The Democratic Republic of Congo had been experiencing some significant issues during the 1990s relating to war, but this has ceased to be the case mainly nowadays, meaning tourists are free to visit the region again. A trek through the congo jungle (or even a helicopter ride over a section of it) will change your view of the world forever. It goes on, and on, and on for what seems like forever, illustrating the true power and beauty of mother nature.
4 – Victoria Falls
There aren’t many waterfalls in the world that compare to those in Zambia, and although this country is notoriously difficult to navigate due to the lack of good roads and petrol stations, many people consider Victoria falls to be the 8th wonder of the world. Columns of spray can be witnessed from miles away, which is unsurprising really considering that local people refer to them as the largest sheets of falling water on earth.
So there you have it, my friends. I hope you’ll now give Africa a second thought and start performing some research into how viable a trip here would be for yourselves and your whole families.
