For the budding globe trotter, you won’t find a more exotic location engrained with cultural significance than Africa. The continent’s eternal beauty and spectacular sense of place are perfectly summarized by Earnest Hemingway: “I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up that I was not happy.” The continent contains some of the world’s most captivating landscapes and natural features that will humble you. Here’s a shortlist of some of the most beautiful features Africa offers for your Africa vacation:

Mount Kilimanjaro

Rising out of the earth an astounding 19,000 feet, Kilimanjaro has wowed mankind since even the earliest days of human history. It’s at the heart of the Kilimanjaro National Park, which ranges over 600 square miles. The mountain is about an hour’s drive from the Kilimanjaro airport, and doesn’t require extensive climbing gear to summit, if you’re willing to make the trip!

Lake Victoria

One of the Great African Lakes, Lake Victoria is roughly 150 miles across, and 200 miles in length. It’s the largest tropical lake in the world, and you won’t have any idea what that means until you’re standing on its banks, looking out over the water. A number of countries offer ferry service around the lake, and the body of water serves as a throughway for travelers as well. Definitely a must-see attraction for your vacation to Africa.

Game Reserves

For the hunters for which a camera is all they want to shoot with, Africa offers a unique opportunity to see animals like hippos and lions out in their natural habitat. The continent’s best game reserves are regularly patrolled by rangers, and numerous tour guides are available to get you out into the wild!
