Can i travel to africa

From Tarzan’s book to his first trip to Africa. Jane


Now that we have regained the desire to travel (or did we never lose it?), now that there are fewer obstacles and restrictions, now that the world is once again a board on which to direct our pieces, 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.
