The top 5 reasons to visit Africa soon
Africa is the continent of plenty and the place where people from all across the globe flock for a taste of the ‘other side.’ As someone who is a cultured traveller, I always like to look at what a destination has to offer me. It’s important to have unique experiences and explore things you had never thought of before. This is something you can find in abundance in Africa.
For many people, Africa is the number one continent on their bucket list, and the place they wish to visit above anywhere else, and I do get that. As someone who has had most of their travel experience in and around Asia, it’s important to me to branch out and see the world from a different point of view. This is why I think Africa is one of the destinations that most deserves to be explored this year, and here are five reasons why.
1. Stunning wildlife
Africa is home to some of the most stunning wildlife on the planet, and I think it’s important to take advantage of this while you can. When I travelled around India, I had a wonderful tiger safari adventure, which was something I will never forget. It was even more poignant because tigers are at very real risk of becoming endangered. The same is true of many of the stunning creatures in Africa, such as the Big 5.
2. Natural magnificence
There’s such a wealth of natural magnificence and beauty on display all across Africa. And some of the most appealing things here are the must-see landmarks and iconic sites that make Africa so important – places like Table Mountain (South Africa), the Great Pyramids of Giza (Egypt), and Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania). These are just a few of the epic sightseeing opportunities that spring to mind when you think of Africa, and this shows you how much there is to enjoy here, no matter what countries you choose to visit.
3. A wealth of safari experiences
If you are going to Africa and you’re not planning a safari, then you’ll be missing out! Of course, you will spot a whole ton of wildlife just in Africa, as already mentioned but a safari is almost a rite of passage when you make the decision to check out Africa. Luckily, there are so many different safari experiences to be had. You might consider taking a self-drive safari across the plains of Namibia or doing a jungle trek through Uganda to see mountain gorillas. Whatever your decisions are, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll never forget.
4. Plenty of different places to visit
One of the best things about Africa is the amount of different and diverse places there are to visit. There are so many countries on the continent, and they all offer a different vibe and cultural experience. You need to make sure you sample a few different places in order to get a feel for the true Africa.
5. The people & the culture
The people and the culture of Africa rank as one of the most impressive things about the continent. They are certainly what caught my attention, and you can learn so much about the past through the culture of different nations.
I would recommend a trip to meet the semi-nomadic Maasai people if you get the chance to do so. This will certainly change your perspective on life and give you a better understanding of Africa. Also, see the Owahimbas of Namibia, and the Zulus of KwaZulu Natal.
As you can see, there are plenty of things that are appealing about Africa as a continent. It’s full of so much diversity and different opportunities, and there are a lot of things that play a part in realising the perfect African experience.
I feel like these five suggestions are among the most important reasons to visit Africa but if you think I’ve missed any, make sure you let me know in the comments.
