Top Vocational Destinations in Africa

Are you planning to spend your next vacation in Africa? If yes, you can be sure of having the best moments as long as you make wise decisions. The beauty about Africa is that it has several tourist destinations. The diversity and size of this continent are too large which makes it difficult to choose the ideal location for your vacation. However, some places will guarantee you a memorable, authentic, and unique experience. In this article, we will be looking at some of the top attractions that are a must see when you visit Africa.

The first place you will want to visit are the falls that lie between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are a section of the Victoria Falls National Park and the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. The Victoria Falls are part of the seven natural wonders of the world. These falls are approximately 355m high and 1.7 km wide. More than five hundred million liters of water drain in the Zambezi river in the wet season and generate and generate a white spray that shoots close to 1000 feet in the sky. You can see the white spray and the sound that these waterfalls make 30 miles away. The best time for viewing these spectacular waterfalls is from March to May during the rainy season.

Don’t forget to include the Kenyan Maasai Mara National Park and the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania on your list. You will be able to have a view of the spectacular yearly wildebeest migration in both parks. Visitors attest that this is one of the most significant encounters you can have in life. People can view more than one million wildebeest each year in these parks. The plains have grassland vegetation that provides sufficient food for all the herbivorous animals. The plants are also an excellent hiding place for the big five which are the buffalo, leopard, rhino, elephant, and lion.  One of the most significant benefits about the Masai Mara is that you are free to go off-road as long as you are following the current trails. Therefore, you will have an excellent view of the wildlife and photograph sessions. However, if you are looking for an isolation place, this is not a superb destination because it is always congested and famous.

The other top destination in Africa where you can spend your vacation is the famous Kruger National Park of South Africa. The park has the highest number of wildlife species in comparison to all the other parks in the region. The park has also reported the highest number of bird species. The park covers hundreds of hectares and has a broad range of ecosystem. The infrastructure and accommodation are superb with a great benefit to little children and families.  The park also supports self-drives, and this reduces costs and maximizes your privacy.

The other top African vacation destination is the pyramids of Giza in Egypt. The pyramids were built over 5,000 years ago and remain to be the oldest tourist attraction center in the world. These are also the last living members of the seven wonders of the world. Giza has three pyramids namely Khafhre, Khufu, and Menkaura which is the smallest of them all. The pyramids were initially used as tombs for the mummies and royal kings of ancient Egypt. The father of terror (Great Sphinx) lies in the front section of these pyramids and is the next tourist attraction. The structure is crafted from a single block of stone, and the surprising thing is that it possesses the body of a lioness and the head of a human.
