As such, Africa has untold treasures to reveal to you if you decide to take your time exploring the continent. From diverse and beautiful landscapes to stunning wild animals, ancient ruins, beautiful cultures, tasty delicacies, and more, there are many things to enjoy while visiting Africa. Below is a look at some of the top places to visit in Africa if you are looking to enjoy these treasures.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya
The Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is one of the best places to visit in Africa. The reserve is a paradise that boasts of breathtaking natural scenery and vibrant local culture. It is also a home to a myriad of wild animals, including the Big Five. The Reserve also connects with the Serengeti National Park in the neighboring Tanzania, which creates the perfect destination for wild safaris. It is here that you can enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience of witnessing the Great Migration of wildebeests, an event that has since been designated as one of the wonders of the world.
The Pyramids of Egypt
Egypt is another one of the leading Africa tourist places. The country has lots of attractions, from fascinating history and historic ruins to beautiful culture, natural attractions, coral reefs and luxurious beach resorts, and more.

The Victoria Falls in Zambia is another leading tourist destination in Africa. They are the largest waterfalls in the world, with more than 600 million liters of water falling over the edge each minute during the rainy season. The massive force of the water, as it hits the surface creates a loud roar that can be heard from several miles away.

The Okavango Delta in Botswana is another one of the top places to see in Africa. It is one of the largest inland deltas in the world, covering an area of more than 17,000km. In Botswana, these waters flow into the plains of the Kalahari Desert, where they pass through old hippo paths, palm groves, and papyrus swamps. This creates one of the most beautiful landscapes in Africa – a perfect home for wild animals.

Trip to South AfricaWhile I found manoj ji a very nice and always accomodating person, I was not at all impressed by his management. Here is my pros and cons Pros: 1. Very well versed with the SA market 2. Provided very nice recommendations 3. Definitely will give a good price Cons 1. His management is not good 2. You have to chase him for getting the things done despite regular calling 3. He will forget to get the booking done- our hotel was not booked until the day we reached there. This really pissed me off
Trip to South AfricaThe agent had been supportive and accommodative. He ensured we got the best hotels. The trip was managed well by the agent (Flyocity) The Sky Dive and Bungy Jump :)
Trip to South AfricaTrip was very nicely planned and framed...enjoyed each and every moment ..thanks amit for all ur efforts and help ..
Trip to South AfricaPlace was no doubt an awesome destination. But, I really faced many issues during trip on booking fronts. Here are the details: 1. Despite having private transfers, the cab was not booked from Jburg hotel to airport. I reached airport on the very last minutes. 2. All the tour bookings for a particular day in kynsna was booked for the next day as compared to itinerary. I had to follow up 2 times. Thanks to the booking counters they allowed me on a previous day. (Cango Caves, Wildlike ranch, Ostrish Farm) 3. John benn Sunset cruise was booked on a day at 6:00 PM. I reached there at 5:50 PM and booking counters were closed and got to know later that we had to reach there 30 minutes before. No such information was imparted to us. After asking, to compensate, a same level cruise was booked in cape town at 3 PM. I reached there an hour ago and then got to know that it's booked for 4 PM and the same information was passed on to the vendor by the but nobody took a pain to inform me. I didn't wait for that for 2 hours and purchased tickets for 3 PM and those are also not yet reimbursed; provided that booking counters have reimbursed the already booked cruise tickets to the local vendor. After all this, I really can't think of recommending these vendors to anyone. It was a honeymoon tour and not even a single day passed away when I don't have to follow up for the things.
Trip to Sri LankaMy sister and I had the most fantastic holiday on your beautiful island. Cecil and our driver Priyankara were so hospitable. They are obviously very proud of Sri Lanka and so they should be. We fell in love with the warm, friendly people, beautiful climate, delicious food, culture, history and scenery of the country. Expect more travellers from South Africa as we have told all our family and friends of our wonderful holiday. We have been to many countries, but nothing can compare to Sri Lanka and Queenki Tours. Cecil went out of his way to ensure that all our expectations were met; in fact our expectations were exceeded. Spotting of 3 leopards in Yala National Park; Train ride to Ella; Elephant ride; hospitality of Sri Lankan people.
Trip to South AfricaTrip was amazing and all the arrangements were on point. Nice services by Ms. Prerna from aerospace holidays. Thanks
Trip to South AfricaGood arrangements. They have option to customise the trip as per your needs. Helpful staff.
Trip to South Africahi, I went to south africa and the trip was amazing, it wasn't hectic at all. Prerna was the one who was handling all vouchers and visa thing, she was very helpful and just a call away. we had our private transfers everywhere, and there was no problem anywhere. Everything was pe booked and went smooth.
Trip to South AfricaHaving travelled with travel triangle before,I had expected better experience for my honeymoon trip but it was not! It was very bland and there were no customer delights or suprises planned. Also, there were no arrangements planned for us.The hotel provided at Johannesburg was not upto the mark as they denied to even provide the complimentary two bottles of water in the room when you checkin and their behaviour was also not good but the area was good.All the hotels strictly denied of being informed that a honeymoon couple is checking in and showed us the bookings as well that had come from the travel agent Prashanthi where nothing was mentioned.When we reached out to Flyocity and Prashanthi they started their blame game on the hotels.It was really frustrating to note that our names were all wrong everywhere and the hotel at capetown also denied a booking initially due to wrong names.It was also very frustrating to enquire at every hotel if they are aware about we being a honeymoon couple and then being introduced to guest relations to arrang on our own.It was after a lot of disappointments and to and fro that they arranged for a complimntary dinner and some decoration in the room on the very last day. Also, the driver though a good human being, was always in a hurry to pickup his grandson due to which our time was being cut short.After all we will not be going to SA every other day.All in all it was not what we had expected from travel triangle from a honeymoon trip! Only the time spent with each other as that is the best thing we had.Nothing that the travel partner made special.
Trip to South AfricaThe idea of using travel triangle came through a discussion with my friend over a call, it seemed absurd to book an international vacation aka honeymoon through a mobile app but I was assured of the safety and features. This started my story with Travel Triangle. The idea of multiple travel companies reaching out to me with best possible itnenrary and rate was fascinating. We choose MK Holidays as our travel partner. I personally loved the idea of payments in installments. MK Holidays tried to squeeze the best possible places in South Africa in the limited time we had of 7 days. Nikhil and Manoj did the best they could to help and chalk out a lovely itnenrary for us. Hotels were splendid and the location choosen we're apt for honeymoon and relaxation. However, there are areas where Travel Triangle and MK Holidays can be better to enhance the overall experience. For Travel Triangle: 1. Rep should be more involved to have seemeless communication. I had to follow up too much with everyone. 2. Have more control on the travel companies For MK Holidays: 1. Please provide a detailed itinerary with contact details in advance. 2. Our last day was a bit of hassle as the driver didn't arrive to pick up and the one that came was not having a lot information about the City which made the experience a bit sour towards the end. 3. Be involved with customer more and make sure you be proactive. I had to follow up for every little thing. All in all it was a great trip and I thank all involved in making the vacation a great experience. 1. Winelands aka stellenbosch 2. Time spent and drive through Capetown had some magic that created some speechless moments for us. 3. Casino in Sun City 4. Excitement of spotting big 5 in Pilanesberg National Park

The language difference is hardly an issue in African countries. One may encounter language barriers in remote places like game reserves.
Depending on your destination, your options may vary. For instance, it’s easier to find a five or four-star resort in a city than in the Sahara Desert.
Egypt, Morocco, South Africa, Kenya, Mauritius, and Namibia are popular countries to visit in Africa.
Avoid traveling to countries with political issues or civilian unrest. Follow news updates and get travel insurance before visiting the continent.
While countries like Morocco or Egypt in northern Africa should be visited in the winter season, southern Africa should be visited in summer—when game viewing is at its best.
