African Vacation Destinations
Africa is a very varied continent with a huge contrast between the northern countries and sub-Saharan African countries; whether you want a beach vacation, cultural or historical trip to Morocco or Egypt, a traditional safari or the more specialist safaris available in Botswana or Namibia, Africa has a lot to offer.
I have had many vacations in Africa and have written several articles and taken many thousands of photographs. This lens is a collection of these articles and pictures and some travel tips, advice and recommendations of African hotels and other places to stay.
Map of Africa
Safari vacations in Africa are generally in Sub-Saharan Africa; traditionally the majority of such vacations were in Kenya, Tanzania, or South Africa, with a lot of tourists opting for a beach and safari trip involving several days of sun-bathing followed by a couple of days in a convoy of mini-buses. This is not the optimum way to see the wonderful wildlife and now there are many more adventurous vacations available in such places as the Okavango Delta in Botwana, Etosha in Namibia (see articles below)
While the beach/safari trip is a great introduction to Africa staying in a good luxury lodge gives a far better insight into this fascinating country or camping
and walking safari would give a more affordable if terrifying experience. I have tried both.
