... Is it safe to travel to Africa?do i need a guide? thanks!
There are a handful of African countries where you can enjoy a holiday and they include Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia.
For instance, if you are on one of the extended Kenya walking safaris, you might relax for a day in Nairobi first, and you may even hit the Nairobi National Park for a quick side safari, as it's found just outside the city.
After adjusting for a day or so, it's usually off to other great Kenyan parks. Amboseli National Park, Tsavo National Park, and the renowned Masai Mara Game Reserve are among the best destinations for Kenya walking safaris.
If you are considering heading to Botswana, the Okavango Delta is often the premier destination for not only walking safaris, but for other safaris as well.
In the Serengeti plains in Tanzania, your African walking safari could be led by a Masai warrior, which is a joy if you want to get as much culture as you can during your trip.
Bottom line, there are so many great choices for walking safaris in Africa, the only problem being that it can be rather hard to choose.
I spent 10 days in South Africa in April (Cape Town, Joburg, Hermanus, Gansbaai, Sun City, Pilanesburg, Kruger, Hoedspruit) and loved it!
Between the wonderful people, the nature, and the value to the US $, I was hooked and will return again.
From wine country to shark cage diving and game drives to casinos, beaches and mountain hikes, 5 star resorts to bush camps,,,,you can find anything and everything you want in SA.
Africa is a really great place to visit. My personal favorite is Victoria Falls on the Zambia â€“ Zimbabwe Border. The grandiose Victoria Falls is a waterfall found on the Zambezi river at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The waterfalls have the reputation of being the â€œlargest curtain of falling water on earthâ€. The locals call them â€œMosi-oa-Tunyaâ€, literally meaning â€œsmoke that thundersâ€ because of the columns of spray that can be seen from miles away.
The Victoria falls are a must-see site in Africa because of their unusual form, and the diverse wildlife in their vicinity. On the Zambian side, it is possible to swim in relatively safe natural pools at the top of the falls.
