    Can anyone think of any better African destinations to think of apart from Tanzania & Namibia and why?

    I've been to Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mauritius. I would rank all as pretty great experiences.

    I really love South Africa for a couple of reasons. First of all, there is Kruger National Park. It is humongous - it would take 4 or 5 days to drive from top to bottom non-stop. But it is set up so that even people completely new to safari travel can go through easily - lots of good roads and nice rest camp areas. You can really see lots of wild animals in their natural habitat - elephants, giraffes, zebras, lions, etc. You are strictly forbidden to get out of your car, but it's easy to just stop and watch say, a herd of elephants just 20 feet off the side of the road.

    But when you get tired of seeing wonderful animals, there is Cape Town at the southern tip, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, as far as I'm concerned. It's a thoroughly modern city, with incredibly beautiful beaches and mountains, and it's in the middle of wine country. Love it!

    Zimbabwe. This is a landlocked African country bordered by Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Zambia, and Mozambique. Being so centered, this would be the perfect focal point for African culture. English is an official language so depending on where you go, you might not need a translator though I think a tour guide should be suggested. This is also very safe for an African country and the U.S. dollar and British pound are accepted currency.

        The wonderful thing about Zimbabwe? It's full of attractions! Victoria Falls, said to be the largest waterfall in the world, is located here. If you do visit the falls, I suggest you make your way to the top and take a swim in the Devil's Pool (Armchair), a small pool of water with a natural rock barrier that can be used to look over the humongous falls! One thing to know is that if you want to take a dip in the pool, you should probably do so between September and December, otherwise the water level is too high and you could be swept over the rock barrier and down the waterfall.

        Much of Zimbabwe is savannah (grasslands) with some mountainous forested areas. Many visitors often visit Hwange National Park, a reserve for animals and wildlife. Hippos, Rhinos, Baboon, Giraffe, Crocodiles, Zebra, Okapi, and several other species can be found in this park. It's also home to a large array of flora and fauna. Hibiscus, Cassia, Wisteria, Spider Lily, Teak trees, Msasa, Mahogony, and Boabab trees are all found here. The park is great for nature lovers and bird watchers with over 500 species of birds.

        Honestly, Zimbabwe, with all it's biodiversity and landscape features would really be the most amazing place to visit in Africa. With the immense amount of culture it has, it would definitely be a trip of a lifetime.
