5. The Pyramids, Egypt
The most recognizable Egyptian icons, the Great Pyramids are among the best places to visit in Africa. There are more than 100 pyramids in Egypt which were built as tombs to preserve the mummified remains of Egypt’s dead pharaohs, and keep them undisturbed and safe in their afterlife. The tomb of Pharaoh Khufu, known as Pharaoh Cheops, is the greatest of these pyramids. The Great Sphinx, the half-human half-lion monument, is one of the world’s oldest and largest statues.
