Best things to do and see in Africa

Africa is a very large continent and offers various festivals and popular events throughout the entire year. One of the most colorful and spectacular events to witness in Africa is the Gerewol festival in the Durbali region of Chad. This festival is celebrated annually by the Wodaabe tribes at the end of the rainy season, which is typically around the last week of September. It’s a week-long event where male tribe members participate by dancing and feasting in what is basically a male beauty pageant. If you have flights to Africa during the month of November, consider visiting Kenya to see the Mombasa Carnival. This is Kenya’s largest annual event that showcases the area’s cultural diversity with floats, parades, costumes and dancing. Explore the streets of Mombasa and try local delicacies at stalls set up all around. Another popular event is the festival of the Dhow Countries. This is possibly the largest annual cultural celebration of East Africa. To witness it, you’ll have to be in Stone Town, Zanzibar, during the second and third week of July. The festival is to celebrate the arts, cinema and cultures of countries of East Africa and the Indian Ocean.

There are plenty of top attractions to visit during your stay in Africa. The Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is one of the most visited destinations to see the African wildlife and experience a safari. High season is during the cold months from July to October, so book your flights in advance. Another popular site is the Victoria Falls. You can witness them from either Zambia or Zimbabwe. What is also known as The Cloud that Thunders, the Victoria Falls are a top awe-inspiring attraction in the world, as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. The best time of the year to visit these magnificent falls, and also the busiest, is either right after the peak rainy season around May and June, or during the dry season from August to December if you wish to see the Devil’s Pool and experience white-water rafting. If you’re in Tanzania, make sure to see the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, perfect for avid hikers and climbers. Whether you decide to go from January to March for more chance of snow, or from June to October, it’s an experience you will never forget at the highest peak in Africa.

Africa is full of beautiful sceneries, fauna and cultures. While you’re in the continent, there are some top destinations that travelers love to see. For instance, Cape Town in South Africa is a spot with amazing coastal views, beaches full of penguins and great hiking places like the Maclear’s Beacon or the Lion’s Head mountain overlooking the city. Cape Town is known to get quite busy during its hot season, from December to February. Make sure to find your Africa flight deals in advance if this is when you want to go. If you’re looking for a relaxing beach holiday, another popular place to visit is Zanzibar Island off the coast of Tanzania. Zanzibar is known for its pristine beaches and warm oceans. The peak season to visit, and also the time with the best weather, is during the summer from July to October. Morocco is an admired destination with a mixture of European and North-African culture. The country is also known for its Berber culture and nomadic populations, and taking a camel and desert tour could be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The most popular times to visit Morocco is during the mild seasons, in either spring or fall.
