10 Amazing Vacation Spots in Africa

1. Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls is one of the most beautiful and spectacular waterfalls in the world. Known to locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “The Cloud That Thunders”, it is loved by visitors for its beauty, boasting spray from a little over 354 feet high cascade…twice the spray of Niagara Falls.

2. The Great Migration, Tanzania

More than one million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras make their annual migration in this region.

This year-round migration is the result of the animals moving from Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Reserve at the beginning of the year, up through the Serengeti around mid-year, then hitting Kenya’s Masai Mara around September, before repeating this journey heading southward again.

3. Table Mountain, South Africa

Table Mountain has placed Cape Town on the map as one of the most photogenic and best beach cities in the world. Visitors can take cable car rides to the top of the mesa, where they can experience breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, as well as amazing views.

4. Sahara Dunes, Morocco

Visitors can trek with Berbers from the town of Zagoura, or camp out in Tazzarine. Known as the most user-friendly part of the Sahara, it is accessible from the northern edge of Morocco.  This area is particularly attractive to runners from all over the world, who come to complete in the week-long Marathon des Sables each spring.

5. Sossusvlei Dunes, Namibia

Sossusvlei literally translates to “the gathering place of water”, even though the area is actually very arid, and you will need to bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. The dunes is the result of material flowing from the Orange River into the Atlantic, going north and returning to land by the surf.  The dunes have developed over millions of years. Climbers of the dunes will experience very amazing views.

6. Spitzkoppe, Namibia

The Spitzkoppe showcases many granite peaks in Namibia’s Namib Desert.  Visitors to this area can enjoy bouldering and rustic cave camping in addition to safaris lasting more than one day. The highest peak hits approximately 5,905 feet.

7. Riding safari, Kenya

The amazing savannah is a great place to enjoy a zebra safari. The best way to experience Kenya’s zebras is from the back of a horse.

8. Pyramids of Giza, Egypt

The Pyramid of King Cheops was built around 2650 BC, and is the most famous of the edifices at Giza, near Cairo. This is truly breathtaking, and a must see for tourists visiting Egypt.

9. Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

The Kalahari Desert, a forbidding landscape formed by a huge lake that dried up millennia ago, can be transformed during winter to rich grass sprout when there is heavy rain. This can cause wildlife to break the quietness including flamingos, zebra, and wildebeest.

10. Wonders of the Nile, Egypt

A cruise down the Egyptian Nile shows off relics of one of the world’s most ancient civilizations.  Some of the highlights of the area are colossal statues, and the superb Kom Ombo Temple to the north of Aswan on the east bank.
