Africa's top tourist destinations

Africa is a continent of striking beauty, diverse cultures and incredible landscapes. If you're looking for an unforgettable holiday destination, this destination will be perfect.

From huge beaches to exotic safaris, Africa has everything you need to fall in love with you.

Zanzibar, Tanzania

Zanzibar is a small archipelago in Tanzania known for its white-sand beaches, crystal-clear Indian Ocean waters and unforgettable atmosphere. Here tourists can enjoy a relaxing holiday, a magical underwater world while snorkelling or diving, and visit the ancient town of Stone Town with its narrow streets, vibrant markets and attractions.

The town itself is considered a historical centre and a cultural gem in the region. It's famous for its unique architecture, multi-cultural influences and rich history. Here you can visit Fort Jesús, built by the Portuguese in the 16th century and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in Africa, situated on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The destination is famous for its spectacular mountain scenery, particularly the famous Mount Stone. Tourists can climb to its summit by cable car, which offers spectacular views of the city and the ocean. Cape Town also offers great beaches, wine tours, local food tastings and scenic boat trips.

Despite this, Cape Town is considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world, with people being mugged in broad daylight. Tourists are strongly advised not to take walks after sunset and some guides offer armed escorts during their tours.


Masai Mara, Kenya

Masai Mara is a huge nature reserve located in Kenya. Here you can see large herds of animals such as lions, zebras, giraffes and elephants in their natural habitat. A safari there is an unforgettable adventure to immerse yourself in the world of wildlife.

It's not cheap and lasts 3 to 7 days but it's an unforgettable experience. Imagine telling your colleagues at work how you hunted the African wilderness with a camera.


Victoria, Seychelles

Victoria is the capital of the Seychelles and one of the most popular resorts in Africa. This paradise on the water attracts visitors with its white sand beaches, colourful coral reefs and luxurious hotels. Tourists can enjoy their holidays, engage in water sports, explore the local nature reserves and observe unparalleled views.

The famous St. Anne's National Park is a few kilometres from Victoria. It covers a large area including St Ann's, Moyette and Molodechno Islands. Its waters are inhabited by a variety of marine life such as corals, fish, shells, dolphins and many other animals. Walking, water and even underwater excursions are available for tourists.


Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls are one of the most spectacular natural wonders in Africa. Located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, it is also known among the locals as "Rattlesnake Smoke". Its powerful water jets, noise and thunderous clouds will not leave any visitor indifferent. Perhaps the best way to see this beauty is to book a helicopter tour to enjoy its majesty from above.

To understand the power of this natural phenomenon, one only needs to note that the waterfall is almost 2 km wide. Its water falls with such force that it drowns out any other sound. Even standing a certain distance away from the water's edge makes it easy to get wet, as there is a lot of splashing in the air.


Remember to take care of your safety

A trip to Africa can be an unforgettable adventure, but safety must always come first. Here are some general tips on how to stay safe during your trip:

  1. Familiarise yourself with the specifics of your chosen country before you leave. Learn about the political situation, potential conflict zones, weather conditions, medical certificates and other important aspects. Ask your doctor about vaccinations and other disease prevention measures common in the area.
  2. Make a note of the phone numbers of your country's embassy or consulate, local police and emergency services. Carry these contacts with you in case of an emergency.
  3. Be alert in crowded areas, especially on the streets, on public transport and at popular tourist locations. Refrain from showing money or valuable jewellery.
  4. Always carry your passport or documents proving your identity. Be sure to make several copies and put them in safe places and upload them to the cloud.

It is important to understand that crime rates can vary from country to country and even from region to region within the same state. Somalia, South Sudan, Libya and the Central African Republic are considered the most dangerous right now.

Regardless of the destination you choose, you should always be careful and follow the advice of local authorities and tourist organisations. It is important to study all the tips in advance to make your trip unforgettable and safe.
