Amazingly, Africa is the second largest continent on Earth. Therefore, the destination offers a unique diversity of natural beauties and cultural diversity, bringing tourists into direct contact with nature and the exotic.
That's why we've separated some very peculiar places on the continent that, for sure, should be on everyone's travel list.
Located between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is among the largest waterfalls in the world. In addition to the various falls and bridges, it is still possible to swim in a natural pool at the top of the falls affectionately called the Devil's Pool. Also, people can swim very close to the edge of the waterfall.
Pyramids of Giza
Surprisingly, the pyramids of Giza are one of the most architectural, historical and cultural heritage sites in the world. To reach the famous buildings, the ideal is to go to Cairo, the gateway to one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.
Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti is a large national park (about 40,000km²) in the Serengeti region of northern Tanzania and southwest Kenya in East Africa. Famous for the annual migrations of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle that take place from May to June. In the park live more than 35 species of large mammals such as lions, hippos, elephants, leopards, rhinos, giraffes, antelopes and buffaloes. In addition, the park also has hyenas, cheetahs, monkeys and more than 500 species of birds.
Sun City is a South African holiday resort. The place is very famous and artists like Frank Sinatra, Queen, Ray Charles and Elton John have performed there. Finally, around Sun City are luxury hotels, golf courses, swimming pools, casinos and beautiful forests surrounding the resort.
Cape of Good Hope
The Cape of Good Hope is the point where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. Therefore, in the past, the place was a strategic point of European trade routes to the East.
Mount Kilimanjaro is known as the roof of Africa as it has an altitude of 5,895m at Uhuru Peak, the mountain is located in northern Tanzania, along the Kenyan border.
Sossusvlei National Park
Sossusvlei is a national park home to Namibia's iconic red dunes. It is in the south of the Namib Desert, in the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Surprisingly, the region has very different landscapes, with a dramatic climate, its arid ground, the immense blue and cloudless sky. Finally, its giant dunes leave you with the feeling of being a grain of sand.
Valley of the Kings
Finally, the Valley of the Kings, in addition to being the place where the famous tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered, houses the tomb of the sons of Ramses II. In the latter, 130 corridors and chambers were found, which makes it the largest in the area and one of the largest in the world. But, as research progresses, that number may reach 200. This is because there are already 63 tombs found by archaeologists in that valley, named KV1 to KV63 according to the chronological order of discovery. Its walls were carved and painted with magnificent murals depicting scenes from everyday Egyptian life and the land of the gods. In addition, treasures were stored in the chambers: everything a person would need to sustain life in eternity, from furniture to food, statues, ships and jewelry.
