There are just too many spectacular sites for a list to cover all, but do not worry, here's a rundown of the most remarkable countries around this incredible continent that you should include to your bucket list.
Zambia houses the breathtaking Victoria Falls which is thought to be the largest waterfall in the world. Yes, not only in Africa, but in the whole wide world! During the rainy season, columns of water sprays at the Victoria Falls can be seen from miles away and its noise can be heard from a distance of up to 40 kilometers away. The waterfalls is absolutely a place worth seeing in Zambia but there are also other gorgeous places to see in this country such as the Lower Zambezi River Park where you can witness buffaloes, leopards, and lions.
One of the most exciting places to visit in Malawi is the Nyika Plateau, which is the largest park in the country. It is a home to waterfalls, trout pools, and the magic lake. It also houses over 400 bird species and a Neolithic rock shelter. If you are looking for adventures, you can try trekking or hiking up the mountain. Camping is also great here. Prepare to see a variety of animals, vegetation, and plants.
Hikers around the world go to Tanzania to climb the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Do not worry if you are not into hiking, there are other great sceneries to see in this mountain too. There is the Serengeti National Park which is located in the northern park of Tanzania and it extends to the south-western part of Kenya. Here, you will see over 500 species of birds and 70 large mammals. The Serengeti National Park houses various habitats including forests, grasslands, woodlands, kopjes, and swamps.
Visiting Kenya will allow you to witness one of the finest wildlife destinations in the world-- Maasai Mara. Here, you will witness animals like crocodiles, reed-bucks, impalas, and foxes. And I know you would want to see the wildebeest migration where thousands of wildebeests migrate from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to Maasai Mara National Park. Hikers out there can also enjoy hiking at the Lake Nakuru National Park. Other things to do here are bird-watching, game-driving, and picnics.
Your African tour is also not complete without witnessing the amazing pyramids of Egypt. Egypt is a country rich in history. The Pyramid of Giza, which is included in the seven wonders of the ancient world, still stands until now. You will also see popular Sphinx and three amazing pyramids. Another place that you should not miss is the underground library of Alexandria which consists of many rooms and underground tunnels.
Get a glimpse of the Sossusvlei sand dunes in the Namib desert. These sand dunes are said to be the highest sand dunes in the world. Wait until the sun rises or the sun sets to witness the stunning changing colors. Another site worth visiting in Namibia is the Fish River Canyon, the largest Canyon in Africa and the second largest Canyon in the world.
