The Top 11 Tourist Attractions in Africa


ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK, NAMIBIA

Namibia is ideal for those looking for more independence and self-drive safaris which are well established here.  Such is the Etosha National Park.


SAHARA DESERT, TUNISIA


Covering most of Tunisia’s southern region, the Sahara Desert is an evocative landscape of shimmering sand dunes, palm-fringed oases, and seductive sunsets. Tours take visitors across shifting sands, where adventure-seekers can enjoy ballooning, camel trekking, and sand skiing.


KIPEDO VALLEY, UGANDA


Uganda has 10 national parks, 10 wildlife reserves, and seven wildlife sanctuaries. The more open savannah of the remote Kipedo Valley park in the extreme north makes for easier viewing.


ASWAN, EGYPT

Located on the east bank of the Nile, Aswan is considered Egypt’s most beautiful winter resort with year-round warm weather. On the Nile corniche, the desert merges with granite rocks.


MASAI MARA, KENYA


The safari concept was born there more than 50 years ago. There are plenty of parks ranging from the famous Masai Mara on the border with Tanzania to the enormous Tsavo East and West.


KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, SOUTH AFRICA


Located in Mpumalanga, this is the oldest national park in the country. This is on every operator’s program to see the ‘Big Five’: lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. Travelers can go further north to the Limpopo province to explore the Northern Kruger Great Transfrontier Park, an impressive 13,500sq mile park stretching into Mozambique.


OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA


The country has an upmarket appeal, with excellent small camps and exclusive game-viewing safaris. The Okavango Delta is the best place to spot wildlife while Chobe National Park has the world’s largest concentration of African elephants. The Kalahari Desert offers an insight into the San Bushmen.


THE SAHARA, MOROCCO


The Sahara edges right up to Morocco’s southern frontier. Ouarzazate is the usual launch pad for desert trips, with a marvelous road winding across the Anti-Atlas/Jebel Sarhro via Agdz.


THE SERENGETI, TANZANIA

NYIKA NATIONAL PARK, MALAWI


Formerly known as Nyasaland, Malawi became independent, with Dr. Hastings Banda as its first president in 1966.

GARDEN ROUTE, SOUTH AFRICA

Around 220 miles of road meandering along the Indian Ocean coastline from the Western Cape’s Mossel Bay to Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. The road passes through dense forests, past wide bays, beaches, and rocky cliffs.
