Africa, the second-largest continent in the world, also arguably, the most endowed continent in the world; from the numerous natural resources, to the beautiful scenery, warm temperatures, aesthetically pleasing landscapes, and a whole lot more.
While these qualities are distributed across the 54 African countries, here are a few that stand out:
Home to several pre-historic locations, the Arab Republic of Egypt is at the northwest border of Africa. The capital city is Cairo and the official language is Arabic. Amazing locations include The Nile, Red Sea, The Desserts and more importantly, The Great Pyramids of Giza.
South Africa is situated at the southern-most part of Africa, surrounded by the South Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean. Namibia and Botswana are bordering countries to the north. South Africa is one of the countries graced with most breathtaking sceneries. Cape Town is the country’s capital. English is fairly spoken, with 10 other languages as official languages: Afrikaans, Pedi, Sotho, Southern Ndebele, Swazi, Tsonga, Tswana, Venda, Xhosa and Zulu. Top tourist destinations include Cape Winelands, Durban and Kruger National Park
The world’s fifth-largest island, Madagascar, as peaceful as can be, is located just off the south-eastern coast of Africa, with the Mozambique Channel parting the country and Mozambique. Tourist sites include Ranomafana National Park, Isalo National Park, and Zahamena National Park. French and Malagasy are the country’s official languages and while you may not meet the “Penguins of Madagascar”, you will most certainly enjoy the country’s serenity.
