Africa does not resemble any part of the world at all, and that is why more and more adventurous travelers want to explore this part of the world. Africa offers something unique to every kind of traveler, archeologist, history lover, safari enthusiast, mountain climber and scenic beach. Africa is a land adventure for all.
Here are some attractions you totally should visit in Africa:
The Great Pyramids near Cairo are among the most famous Egyptian landmarks, and are often portrayed in various Hollywood films. However, these huge tombs are literally the remains of the remains of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs. The most famous tombs at this site are the tombs of Pharaoh Khufu, the Great Sphinx and the half-human half-lion statue.
The Fish River Canyon consists of a 160 km long valley that runs 27 km wide. The valley is a great place for hiking as well as watching zebras, wild horses, Kudu antelopes and more than 60 different species of birds.
Mount Kilimanjaro is 19,340 feet high in the sky, the highest mountain in Africa and the longest standing mountain in the world. Tourists can get breathtaking views of the countryside, wildlife reserves and glaciers fairly accessibly, from the top of Uhuru, the highest point on the mountain.
Located on both sides of the Mosi-oa-Tunya River, which connects Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is a popular African landmark worth seeing. The diverse wildlife that surrounds it makes for some extra points! You can also enjoy a swim here, in the natural pools on the Zambian side of the waterfalls.
Near Luxor on the West Bank of the Nile river, there are not less than 63 tombs, containing priceless Egyptian monuments, known as the Valley of the Kings. The valley dates back to 500 years ago, somewhere between the 16th and 11th centuries BC. It is vastly known as the last place of Tutankhamun, discovered in 1922.
The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest dry volcano in the world. It extends over an area of 19 km and has depth of 600 meters from rim to the ground. Here you can see a large number of animals that may only be found in Africa, including the Black Rhino, the hippo, zebras, lions and gazelles, living on a 260-km-long pit.
If you’re a traveler who loves culture, take a tour to the remote Omo River, which is located in southwest Ethiopia. You’ll have a chance at meeting not less than 50 indigenous tribes, who all live here. Many people here have remained loyal to their traditional culture, still living in primitive African tribal camps.
The Virunga Mountains extend along the borders of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This is one of the only places where you can still see the endangered mountain gorilla. We truly recommend visiting this place — it really is a special, one of a kind attraction.
