Ah, the wonderful continent of Africa… One of the most interesting facts about Africa is that it’s the second-largest continent in the world, both in terms of size and population. So yes, with 54 countries and 9 dependent territories, you should expect plenty of exciting things to discover here. Just imagine – the colourful cities of Morocco, exotic Egypt, the striking landscapes of Zimbabwe, diverse South Africa and everything else in-between.
Africa has a long and interesting history and it is said that this is the place where humans originated approximately 7 million years ago. It’s a place of visual art, rich culture, unique architecture (just think about the pyramids!), traditional music and exciting adventures. If you decide to visit Africa, be prepared for wildlife, colonial cities, tuk-tuks, impressive artisan goods and unforgettable gastronomy. There are plenty of Africa tourist spots that should be on your bucket list and, if you ask me, every one of us should set foot on this special continent at least once in our lifetimes.
Of course, my list of the best places to go in Africa doesn’t end here, but I’ll let you discover the rest by yourself. Just know that Africa is the place where you can dive with sharks, conquer a 5,895m high mountain and taste some hearty soups, piri piri chicken and lots of rice.
