What to do in Africa
Traveling to Africa is always a discovery. The neighboring continent has the ability to transform us in the deepest part of our being. The way of seeing life, the immensity of the landscapes, the harmony with nature… we have much more to learn than we think.
On the trips to Africa that we have selected, a completely transforming experience awaits you. Not only will you see lions, elephants and leopards, but you will also learn about a more sustainable way of living in local communities.
From top accommodations such as the Arusha Cofee Lodge, it is possible not only to go on safaris in the Serengeti or the Ngorongoro Area but also to learn about coffee cultivation or visit tribes who maintain their nomadic way of life with pastoralism.
Tanzania also stands out for having a beautiful island, Zanzibar, which is a luxurious finishing touch to a safari with a private beach. A union of adventure and relaxation with first-class resorts in an Indian paradise.
Cheapest countries to travel in Africa
Now that we have regained the desire to travel (or perhaps we never lost it?), now that there are fewer obstacles and restrictions, now that the world is again a board on which to direct our chips, now is the time to travel to Africa. That remote, complex and unfathomable land that, nevertheless, traps those who dare to discover it.
Africa enchants with its landscapes and its overwhelming fauna. The sleepy and monotonous savannah, the tropical rainforest, the arid desert lands, the icy slopes of the mountains, the white sandy beaches soaked by two oceans. But also for its immaterial, ethereal, almost magical features.
For the magic of its light, which gives unforgettable scenes. For the slowness of time, that other notion of existence that leads to live without urgency. But also for the strength of the group that responds to its tribal tradition. For all this and much more, it is time to discover the black continent, full of color and movement.
Once hailed as the Best Tourism Destination by the European Council on Tourism and Trade (ECTT), Ethiopia has been recharged with political harmony, security and infrastructure development. That and a wider range of flights between Madrid and Addis Ababa make this country a perfect destination for lovers of legendary landscapes. Lalibela, Axum, Gondar or the monasteries of Tigray are just some of the examples.
Vacation spots in Africa
When I think of where to travel in Africa? There are two destinations that automatically come to mind: the island of Zanzibar and Kenya. Below I tell you more about each of them and explain why they are a wise choice.
On the other hand, Kenya is one of the best places to go on safari in Africa, it has many Natural Parks where with organized tours you can visit the animals that live in them. Another of my recommendations on your trip to Kenya, is that you know the Maasai people, which has about 880,000 people approximately, there is always something you can learn, especially with such different cultures.
Now that you know the two best destinations to travel to in Africa, let me also give you some good advice on where to book your tour. My advice is to take a look at Ultimateafricaexpeditions.com travel agency, specialists in tours to the African continent. This agency organizes tours to the most emblematic places in Africa, so you don’t have to worry about anything, just enjoy. Below I tell you more about their advantages.
Best places in Africa
Africa is not to be missed on the world map. The colonial era has left clear traces on the fibrous borders, but the fascinating cultures are well preserved and nature is on the verge of vanishing. If you’re looking for magnificent cultural and natural experiences, Africa is the place to go.
Egypt cannot avoid its great attraction; the pyramids and Giza. The ancient history remains fascinating. Like frenetic Cairo, camel rides in the sandy desert, boat rides on the Nile and diving in the Red Sea at Sharm el-Sheik. The ancient city of Luxor with the Valley of the Kings is a good starting point.
North Africa is ideal for travel if you want to clear the sky and don’t want to spend too much time on transportation. Here you can soak up the sun, stimulate the senses and explore a different and impressive culture, and while there can be intense places and chaotic cities, there are always quieter alternatives too.
Ghana is the most obvious and popular country to visit. The country attracts many volunteers and rightly so. It is easy and safe to travel, English is spoken and it is possible to immerse yourself in Danish colonial history, for example at Christiansborg Fort, go on jungle safari and surf the waves off the coast.
