Most Beautiful Places to Visit in Africa

Africa is the Cradle of Humanity, but also a continent rich in varied and magnificent landscapes, with specificities inherent to each country. For our travel-loving readers, we have tried to answer the following question:

Africa, wildlife in its natural state

For an exotic stay, Africa has many assets, both natural and cultural. Whether in Ethiopia, rich in an exceptional cultural heritage, in Kenya, famous for its photo safaris, or in Mozambique, whose beaches are among the most beautiful in the world, Africa is THE continent in vogue for holidays.

Africa in a nutshell

Africa is a continent characterized by its geographical and cultural diversity. Many languages ​​are spoken there. Arabic in the north, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese languages ​​in the former Western colonies, and countless national languages ​​and dialects. The two main religions represented on the African continent are Islam in the north and Christianity in the south, to which are added traditional religions practiced in particular in the central countries. From north to south, from ocean to ocean, the landscapes are so varied, the peoples so different, that it is hard to believe that it is a single continent.

North Africa: history and refinement

Africa is not so far away: a few hours of flight are enough to reach Morocco. Dream country of orientalists, its only name is an invitation to ocher and green lands, desert and luxuriant landscapes. Marrakech is certainly the emblem of refined and picturesque Morocco, which is gradually revealed at the bend of a souk or in the courtyard of a riad, refreshed with fountains and orange trees. Morocco is intimate or festive here; further on, it is grandiose and contemplative: in the middle of the desert, luxury takes on the radiance of a starry sky and the flavor of mint tea. Eastern, Egypt is just as much. This is the land of archaeologists, history buffs and mystery buffs. Here, it impresses: Karnak, Luxor, Philae, and of course the indescribable pyramids of Giza suggest that man, a long time ago, was familiar with the gods. There, Egypt dazzles: the Nile Valley is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the world, whose natural beauty is enriched by this very special relationship that exists between men and the river. He is the Mother of the country and without him, none of these sites that fascinate us today would exist. Friendliness of a cruise ship or intimacy of a dahabeya, choose your version of Egypt.

In the south: wild life and life-size

South of the great sand deserts that separate the Maghreb from black Africa, we change universe. In Ethiopia, we enter the Rift Valley, where man took his first steps. This country apart, very Christian, whose history is colored with legends, invites you to travel through time. In Lalibela, we are in the time of the first Christians, of an infallible devotion. In the Omo Valley, we walk in the footsteps of the first men. By meeting peoples and tribes, we seem to encounter a certain past, that of a life in the middle of nature, the harshness of which is inscribed on the beautiful Mursi or Hamer faces.

Further south, nature is queen. In the Congo, people come to admire the master of the forest, the impressive gorilla. In Kenya and Tanzania, the savannah unrolls its plains to infinity to let prey and predators play before our eyes the scenes of a life with immutable rules: peaceful cohabitation, inexorable migration, fierce hunting…

Namibia is the territory of a disproportionately beautiful nature: sand dunes, canyons, valleys… even here, men seem to belong to the earth, like the very beautiful Himbas.

Finally, in the very south, it is the South African rainbow. The tip of Africa seems to be another continent, which has its own countries: animal reserves in the northeast, Zulu country in the southeast, urbanization and a concentration of history in the center, European influences in the west… make several trips in one go!

  • Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa)

The Democratic Republic of the Congo, informally Congo-Kinshasa. The Kingdom of Kongo remained present in the region between the 14th and the early 19th centuries. Belgian colonization began when King Leopold II founded the Congo Free State. The Democratic Republic of Congo gained its independence under the Belgium rulers in 1960. After its independence it became known as the Republic of Zaire between 1960 until 1997. Today this country is known as the Democratic Republic of Congo, or Congo-Kinshasa.

  • Sao Tome and Principe

Archipelago located in the South Atlantic, in the Gulf of Guinea, the Democratic Republic of Sao Tome And Principe has approximately 187,000 inhabitants. Formed from the two main islands that gave it its name (but it is also nicknamed Chocolate Island because of its cocoa plantations), and located just on the Equator, this country is a former Portuguese colony, and one of the smallest in Africa. Still very little known to tourists, it nevertheless offers undeniable riches: an astonishing fauna and flora, beautiful beaches and an ocean to discover, an interesting heritage and a friendly population.

Located at the crossroads between the meridian of Greenwitch and the Equator, the archipelago of Sao Tome and Principe is made up of two islands. Its total area does not exceed 1,001 km², which makes Sao Tome and Principe one of the smallest countries in the world.

Both islands are bordered by many heavenly-looking beaches. The waters are warm, clear and full of fish. The forest, dense and luxuriant, is omnipresent. The rivers are also numerous on the archipelago. Among the most important peaks are: The Pico de Sao Tomé with 2,024m of altitude (the highest point of the two islands), the Pico Cabundé, the Pico Papagaio and the Pico de Cao Grande. The latter is a reference of the landscape of Sao Tome.

  • Chad

A contrasting country with great cultural diversity, Chad is a showcase of all the riches of the African continent. Little visited, it is aimed at travelers in search of adventure who will always be welcome for Chadians.

Chad is one of the largest countries in Central Africa. Its territory is divided between the Saharan domain in the north, the Sahel in the center and the Sudanese savannas in the south.

Like most African countries, Chad offers a rich and varied handicraft, available in all the country’s markets, and especially in the capital. In N’Djamena, we find the charm and friendliness of African cities, despite its painful past. Head to the historic district to immerse yourself in the country’s culture and then to the lively neighborhoods after dark.

Outside the capital, Chad is full of natural sites. In the south, Zakouma Park is home to multiple species of birds as well as species of savannah animals such as giraffes, buffaloes, hippos and elephants. A true little corner of paradise, it has been classified since 2005 both for its fauna and for its natural relief. In the north of the country, the Tibesti region is known for its magnificent rock carvings. More particularly, those of Kla Ouenama and Géhesser, dating from several millennia BC, thus reproduce scenes of daily life in which animals and men are drawn with a knife.

East Africa

  • Ethiopia: cradle of humanity

Cradle of humanity, where we can find in 1974 the skeleton of the one who will be called “Lucy”, country of Kush, kingdom of the Queen of Sheba, country of the priest Jean, Abyssinian empire… Ethiopia has many names, like so many witnesses to its exceptional history and culture that make more than one traveler dream.

The second oldest Christian state in the world, Ethiopia lives to the rhythm of its religions, the most important of which is Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity. These cults have bequeathed a cultural and architectural heritage of great wealth, between the rock churches of Lalibela, the ancient city of Axum, and the mysterious monastic communities of Lake Tana.
Cut within by the Great Rift Valley, Ethiopia is not devoid of natural beauty either. Its unique topography, ranging from 125 m below sea level to 4,543 m, is dominated by its high plateaus which, at an altitude of more than 2,000 m, deliver an impressive natural spectacle and are home to unique biodiversity.

Long difficult to access, this multi-faceted country is opening up more and more to travellers. Having returned to a certain stability in the 2010s, Ethiopia experienced a real economic boom, finding in tourism a key to its development. Hotels, restaurants, lodges, transport have multiplied throughout the country.

Ethiopia is probably one of the richest historically and culturally speaking African countries. A stay in Ethiopia is also the assurance of taking full view with spectacular landscapes. You will undoubtedly start your stay in Addis Ababa, a capital renowned for being very festive. Hiking enthusiasts will not be disappointed between the Simien National Park which is home to many endemic species, the Mago National Park which will surprise you with its amazing mix of deserts, savannah plains and green mountains and finally, the Balé Mountains National Park which offers breathtaking views.

For a bit of history, the cities of Axum, Gondar and Lalibela, all classified as World Heritage by Unesco, are essential stops. Between the churches cut in the rock, the historical remains and the medieval castles, you will almost have the impression of being in Europe! Described by some as one of the most beautiful cities in Ethiopia, the fortified city of Harar is also worth a detour. Strolling through its narrow streets full of color is a real pleasure. Finally, the Rift Valley lakes will immerse you in the heart of what is historically considered the cradle of humanity.

  • Kenya: Land of escape in the heart of East Africa, Kenya is a destination where breathtaking landscapes rub shoulders with one of the most beautiful fauna on the planet

Africa is a continent sometimes forgotten by travelers because it seems underdeveloped for tourism. However, some countries are gradually emerging from the lot, such as Kenya, which offers the possibility of luxury travel as well as stays for backpackers.

When we think of going to Kenya on vacation, we first think of a safari. Although the country is undoubtedly an ideal destination for a safari, it is full of other places and activities that will make a visit to Kenya an unforgettable experience.

For lovers of fauna and flora, Kenya is the perfect place to discover all the animals of the savannah and marvel at the lions, rhinos, cheetahs or giraffes. You can vary the days of safaris with the immense Masai Mara reserve, which vibrates each year to the rhythm of the great migration of wildebeest and zebras. But also through the park of Amboseli which can be visited with Kilimanjaro in the background or with the park of Tsavo which is well known for its red soil. For those looking for thrills, the opportunity to walk among the animals of the savannah at Lake Naïvasha will be a must on your trip to Kenya. But the country is not just about its immense natural expanses. You can also discover a lively and modern capital through Nairobi, observe huge waterfalls like the Thomsons falls or even tackle the ascent of the mythical Mount Kenya before ending your stay with your feet in the water in Diani Beach.
After wandering for several months between savannah, nature reserves and Masai villages, I reveal all my advice on the essentials to discover in the country.

  • Malawi: winning combination: landscapes, lakes, fauna and flora, culture

An African country holds the winning combination: landscapes, lakes, fauna and flora, culture, all of this in such a small country! Your stay in Malawi, far from the main tourist routes, will surprise you in more ways than one. Recharge your batteries in the heart of a wild and preserved continent.

Malawi offers breathtaking landscapes; mountain ranges and lakes rub shoulders with green pastures. The geography of Malawi has endowed it with tumultuous landscapes, vertiginous chasms and lush plains that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Mount Mulanje, which culminates at 3,002m, is the highest mountain in the country and an ideal place for hiking. 20% of the territory is occupied (to the east) by Lake Malawi, which gave its name to the country. Beaches have been developed, which makes the lake a particularly popular place to rest.

These are the shores of a lake, but not just any lake. Lake Malawi offers amazing landscapes. The richness of its seabed, the clarity of its water, its beaches straight out of a Caribbean postcard… all contribute to making Malawi a leading seaside destination. The peninsula of Monkey Bay and the Mumbo Islands are particularly famous.

The discovery of the capital, Lilongwe, with its old town, or the archaeological site of Chongoni, with its cave paintings, will complete your trip to this authentic and preserved African country.

  • Uganda: the beauty of its natural landscapes, the richness of its fauna and its culture give Uganda its nickname of “Pearl of Africa”

With its mosaic of tribes, this country is a cultural melting pot. From discovering its historical sites to adventure in its natural sites, Uganda is a very attractive country.

A state in East Africa, Uganda shares borders with the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west, Sudan to the north, Kenya to the east, Rwanda and Tanzania to the south.

Kampala, the capital is bordered to the south by the immense Lake Victoria. It has an exceptional fauna: antelopes and hippopotamus coexist with the Great Egret and the Kingfisher of Senegal, as well as many fish and insects. Kasubi, one of the districts of the “city of seven hills”, is home to magnificent royal tombs. These are kept in a circular building topped with a dome and built with natural materials. At the top of the hill stands the former palace of the kings of the kingdom of Buganda. The city also derives its wealth from its many religious denominations: from the top of their respective hills, the cathedral of Namirembe – dedicated to Anglican worship and that of Rubaga, dedicated to Catholic worship – reveal their superb towers. Also called Sainte Marie Cathedral, the Catholic Cathedral preserves the relics of the first African Catholic bishop and archbishop. Below, the city center is heralded by the markets of Owino and Nakivubo which embellish the city with their colorful rhythmic atmosphere. Lovers of typical objects will find there, among other wooden sculptures and pottery items. The National Museum of Uganda is the ideal place to discover the animals of the region or, more unusual, a collection of musical instruments that everyone can play freely. Also not to be missed is Makere University, which has the largest library in East Africa.

If the country has several national parks, the most popular is undoubtedly the Queen Elisabeth National Park, in the south-west, classified as a biosphere reserve for humanity by UNESCO: it contains one of the last colonies of Mountain Gorillas. Further south, the Sese Islands are home to many birds. Hikers, confirmed or not, will meet in the Elgon or Ruwenzoni mountains.

Some festivities take place in Uganda each year, such as the Nation’s Hero Day on June 9 or Independence Day on October 9. Religious holidays are also celebrated.

In the heart of Africa’s Great Lakes, Rwanda, nicknamed “the land of a thousand hills”, is bordered to the north by a chain of high volcanoes, from east to south by the Akagera and Bugesera marshes. , to the southwest by the Nuyngwe forest massif, and to the west by Lake Kivu, on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The majority of the territory of Rwanda is located at more than 1,000 meters above sea level.

The western mountains are covered with a forest made up of eucalyptus, acacacia and palm oil plantations.
To the south, in the primary forest of Nyungwe, which extends over 970 km², there are thousand-year-old tree species: nearly two hundred and seventy species are represented. The forest is best known for its hundred varieties of orchids.

Akagera National Park is home to many wild species: elephants, hippos, leopards, zebras, antelopes…
In the northwest, Volcanoes National Park is home to one of the last wild populations of mountain gorillas.

Rwanda experiences an equatorial but temperate climate due to the altitude.
Winter extends from July to September. The rainy season begins in September and ends in December. It starts again from March to May.
Temperatures are pleasant all year round: around 30°C during the day and 15°C at night.

Rwandan cuisine is essentially based on roots (cassava, sweet potato and yam). Peas and beans are also central to the diet. The traditional dishes are:

— the sombé with dried isambas, sardines from Lake Kivu with cassava leaves;
— umutsima, a paste of bananas or squash accompanying the dishes;

  • Seychelles: heavenly destination offers many activities in unspoiled nature

The lush vegetation rivals the most beautiful fine sandy beaches in the world.

They were discovered at the beginning of the 16th century by the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama, but owe their name to a Frenchman: Jean Moreau Séchelles, financial controller of Louis XV. The Seychelles were classified as a French colony for 60 years, from 1756 to 1814, then a British colony until 1976. Since then, the archipelago of 115 islands has formed an independent Republic, a member of the Commonwealth and of La Francophonie.

Today and always, the Seychelles are real jewels, island beauties with reefs and beaches that can no longer be described. Preserved by this insularity, the Seychelles are admirable guardians of nature, offering refuge to many animal and plant species.

  • Sudan: rich in historical sites

Sudan remains a country of multiculturalism par excellence. The North, Muslim, is a real contrast to the South, where the majority of Christian and animist religions mingle. Although Arabic and English are the official languages, few people really know how to speak English. In private life, the inhabitants sometimes communicate in Peul, Nuer or even in the Dinka language.

Country rich in historical sites (the site of Meroe where the last ancient Sudanese kingdom reached its peak) or a country with breathtaking landscapes (waterfalls, volcanic lakes, mountains, the coasts of the Red Sea, the Nubian desert or the banks of the Nile).

Sudan is the third largest country in Africa after Algeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Almost all of the country consists of a vast plateau whose altitude varies between 300 and 1200m. Country largely covered by the desert, the landscapes of Sudan come in yellow, gray and ochre. Unexpected oases, parks like that of Dinder, the sumptuous pyramids of Meroe, the many temples, white sand beaches, seabeds with exceptional corals, and hills conducive to walks like the Arkaweet, these are the rare jewels with which the Sudan is endowed.
Many natural beauties, once devoid of tourists, can now be showcased. Crossed by the Nile, the Savannah and a strip of green land have developed in the south of the country.

To learn more about the Sudanese culture, several sites are to be seen. Among them, the National and Ethnographic Museum of Khartoum. The souk, the largest in the country, also in Khartoum and held every Friday morning. Madhi’s tomb, Beit al-Khalifa, not forgetting the great archaeological sites of Bajrawiya, Naga, Meroé, El Kurru and Musawarat which have inspired many stories.

  • Tanzania: On the occasion of a safari in Tanzania, we will be keen to visit the famous Serengeti National Park and that of Mount Kilimanjaro near Moshi

Tanzania is one of the leading safari destinations in Africa.
Travelers looking for safaris will inevitably be conquered and seduced by the national parks of Tanzania where the exceptionally rich large wildlife can be observed.
From north to south, Tanzania has several national parks where you will experience unforgettable safari moments with unique face-to-face encounters in the heart of breathtaking natural landscapes, aboard open 4X4 vehicles driven by driver guides, wildlife experts and enthusiasts.

  • Zambia: safari country, other activities await you such as rafting and hiking

Discover a bushes where animals, both prey and predators, freely cross camps without fences, where travel stories are exchanged around a fire at nightfall, and where the imprint of man is still invisible. . To visit Zambia is to have the opportunity to explore a remote and bewitching wilderness, whose fauna, as in the rest of southern Africa, is incredibly rich. You can just as easily slide in a canoe on the calm bed of a river as you can raft down the raging rapids just a stone’s throw from the famous Victoria Falls.

Although landlocked, Zambia is crossed by three major rivers: the Kafue, the Luangwa and the Zambezi, which determine both the geography of the country and the pace of life of the inhabitants. Because of its size, the dilapidation of its road network and the predominance of top-of-the-range infrastructures, Zambia is a difficult country for the independent traveler to understand. However, should you decide to take the plunge, the relative absence of tourists will make your trip all the more enjoyable.

The traditional culture, rich and complex, remains very much alive as well as the worship of the ancestors and the vodoun or vodou worship (a religion practiced by the Aja, Ewe, and Fon peoples of Benin, Togo, Ghana, and Nigeria).

Benin is a small country, but it was the most important kingdom in West Africa. Slavery was widespread there: several million slaves, mostly prisoners captured by enemy tribes, were sent overseas, mainly to Brazil. Admittedly, Benin has the same problems as its neighbours: poor roads and infrastructure, water and health problems, and institutionalized corruption. But it is richer and has a stronger economy than most of its neighbors.
