There are so many things to do in Africa and it caters for every budget. There are options for both a luxury safari in Africa and a budget safari in Africa. Africa is also home to some of the best beaches in the world, such as Zanzibar and Watamu.
One of the best places to visit in Africa is South Africa. It’s full of a variety of adventures: safari in South Africacliff jumping, Cape St Francis and more.

The best time to visit Africa really depends on where you are going, because it’s a really diverse continent. Africa typically experiences two seasons: the wet season and the dry season.

The best time to visit Southern Africa for game-viewing is April to October, during the dry season. East Africa’s dry season and the best time for safari is June-October or December-February. The best time to visit West Africa is also during the dry season, from October to March.

North Africa is an ideal destination because the weather is pleasant year-round. If you want to avoid big crowds, visit North Africa in shoulder season from March-May or September-November.

Last year I went on the trip of a lifetime, a safari through 3 National Parks in Kenya. Seeing the Big 5 is a once in a lifetime experience.

I’ve only really touched the surface of adventure in Africa but I was blown away by the beaches in Watamu and the cliff adventures in Tsitsikamma National Park. A road trip through Namibia and a week in Cape Town / Mauritius / Madagagar are high on my list. As is climbing Kilimanjaro, wine tasting in South Africa and booking a stay in a traditional Souk in the heart of Marrakesh.

So much to see!
