There are many awesome places to visit in Africa. From the ancient temples, tombs and pyramids of Egypt to the breathtaking natural wonders and wildlife in Kenya, Uganda, Namibia and Botswana, there are plenty of interesting things to see and do for each type of traveler, from beach bum, safari enthusiast and mountain climber to archaeologist and history buff. When traveling, we often forget about this wonderful continent. It’s one of the major reasons why I’ve decided to compile the list of 10 must-see places in Africa. Let’s start our journey to discovering some of the most beautiful places to visit in the great Continent of Africa.
1. Okavango Delta, Botswana
One of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, the Okavango Delta is a large inland delta, which covers an area of over 17,000 km2. Although the Okavango Delta is considered to be the biggest inland delta in the world, it’s actually not. There are 2 larger similar geological features in Africa alone: the Inner Niger Delta, Mali and the Sudd on the Nile, South Sudan. Still, the Okavango Delta is a fantastic labyrinth of great inland lagoons, hidden water channels, and beautiful lakes.
