What are the best places to visit in Africa outside of South Africa, safari, or Mediterranean-Euro adjacent places like Tangier?

Anyone vacationed in Africa? I think I would like Ethiopia. I like the food, and the Great Rift Valley fascinates me.

In Ethiopia all seems to breathe freedom and peace and to make one forget the world and its sad turmoils.

Please visit Sudan, OP. I will show you the best restaurants in town.

I'm amazed how underdeveloped for tourism Africa is. All those countries should have been able to capitalize on that natural beauty, maybe become a party destination or something. Seems way underdeveloped for the number of countries and resources. If people can fly to Thailand than Africa should have been doable.

East Africa- Kenya or Tanzania

Zimbabwe but insist on calling it Rhodesia when you visit.

Africa is a jungle overcrowded with hungry predators just waiting to victimize your ignorant Western ass.

R4 - there is loads of tourism happening from Eastern Europe to Tanzania, Egypt, Zanzibar and Kenya. However, we aren't going to a place like Egypt as both my roommate and I object to their human rights record and aren't in the mood for a place you essentially have to hide who you are. Tanzania, Kenya and Zanzibar are places I would like to go to after I get the second jab. Costly but maybe one safsri ince in a lifetime.

I suggest a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills.

R12 It's still there. Turned into a museum by the Kenyan government.

There are parts of Ethopia that are fascinating, like Asmara, the city Musssolini had built that's all Art Deco.

Definitely Namibia - Sossusvlei, Fish River Canyon, maaaybe Lüderitz. Windhoek is just a place to stay for the night and stock up on stuff before heading out. But, it is also a place many start for a tour of Eastern Namibia, the Okavango Delta in Botswana, and up to Vic Falls. Sunrise and sunset over the savannah (and the Namib desert) in southern Africa is absolutely breathtaking.

Also, off the east coast is Mauritius, which is pretty chill has interesting, but maybe not breathtaking sights, beaches, etc.

Safaris in Kenya and Tanzania are cool, too. But go too long and you maybe never want to see another fucking zebra again in your life.

A former colleague of mine adores diving around São Tome. I went just to get away from a shittier shit hole (we can call them that again, yes?), and would not cross a continent just for that, but it was nice enough.

Um, good luck finding any country in Africa that has a different record, R11, including the three you mentioned that you would like to go to.

r13 Coincidentally, I was at that very museum (and its nearby restaurant) on my last day in Kenya in March of last year. We ended up having our two-week tour cut short so we could get out of the country before they started to lock down and quarantine foreigners.

Angola, Mozambique and other former Portuguese colonies are relatively gay friendly, at least when it comes to the law. Dakar in Senegal is said to be one of the most interesting cities on the continent.

by Anonymousreply 2205/03/2021

R22 law and on-the-ground situation are two different things. Angola, for instance, is a place to avoid for so many reasons.

Excellent post R17. I agree with Namibia - jaw-dropping scenery, safe, and easily toured in a self-drive SUV. Botswana is similarly a great place to visit, especially if you like elephants!

by Anonymousreply 3105/03/2021

The Cape Verde Islands are a good place to base yourself if you want to visit but not stay too long in Senegal (direct flights). It's sort of Africa lite.

Victoria Falls--amazing in and of itself, and you could add on side trips like a safari in Zambia and the Namib desert pretty easily. Fly on to Cape Town and you've got a great tour of African highlights.

I want to go to the Okovango Delta in Botswana for some wildlife photography and birding, but holy shit getting there would be a trial! Opposite side of the planet and no hope of direct flights.

by Anonymousreply 4405/04/2021

R44 if you're in the US you can fly direct to Johannesburg from Atlanta, DC, and NYC but look forward to a 15+ hour flight. From there it's about a 1 hour flight to Maun, Botswana (on a regional jet or A319), then another 2 hour drive, on a mostly paved road (in so-so shape) to where you'll be staying. The cool thing about the drive, which is basically a two lane highway, is sighting the odd elephant by the side of the road, much like you would spot an elk or bison in Yellowknife. Surreal.
