What popular events take place 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.

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.
