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.
This word, which in Swahili means journey, immerses us in the most abrupt nature where sunsets take on a special character and where some of the most dangerous species in the world coexist with the most ancestral tribes. Below, discover the 5 best destinations in Africa to go on safari.

For the Maasai, who were the first to inhabit it, its name means “endless plain”. The park borders the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a volcanic area and one of the most important places for the study of the evolution of the human species. The best time to go on safari in this area is in early summer, as this is when the Great Migration to the Masai Mara passes through the park.
The African continent has a huge variety of experiences to suit every traveler, from safaris in Kenya, to cultural trips in Ethiopia and seeing gorillas up close in Uganda. Here are Africa’s must-see places to visit.
Ethiopia is a country full of ancient culture where you will find interesting buildings and archaeological artifacts. Some of the most popular places are the ancient ruins of Axum, Gondar Castle and the Omo Valley.
Kenya is one of the most popular African countries for safaris, largely because it is where you can see the Great Migration. During this natural phenomenon, more than two million animals make a migratory circle across the Serengeti plains, passing from Tanzania to Kenya’s famous Maasai Mara National Reserve and back.
If you want to see a good representation of African wildlife, this is probably the best place to take a game drive. Gravel roads run throughout the park, and there are special designated areas where you can stop for lunch.
