Hello there!

I hope you had a lovely few days. Today is not Sunday, but I wanted to do a middle of the week post. May this be the first of many. 🙂

Africa is a continent rich in culture and natural beauty and this makes me beyond proud to come from here. Other than the usual safari that you MUST take, there are plenty of other attractions. For this reason, I have come up with a must-do list that hopefully we may one day fulfill. Let’s get into this.


  1. Virunga National Park, Congo
    At the top of my list is Virunga National Park that has almost half of the sub-sahara’s biodiversity. It is also home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes! African gorillas and chimpanzees are also found in the park.Treks and hikes are available to experience all these wonders. Read more: http://visitvirunga.org/

    Nyiragongo, one of the world’s most beautiful and active volcanoes, towers above the thick jungles of Virunga National Park at 3468 meters. A five-hour hike to the rim of the 1.2 km wide crater reveals the fiery lava lake deep inside. Sitting on the edge of the crater at night, the red boiling lava and smoking caldera will mesmerize the visitor. The trek includes a walk through lush forest and lava fields with a steep incline near the top, and includes an overnight stay in the Nyiragongo Crater Cabanas on the volcano rim. The stunning views both day and night make this an unforgettable experience.

The attractions in the area are the Sesriem Canyon, Dune 45, Hiddenvlei, Big Daddy and Deadvlei. You can also take a helicopter ride round the Skeleton coast to see where the desert meets the ocean.

  3. Victoria Falls, Zambia.
    This is one of the most spectacular waterfalls on earth and one of Africa’s main attractions.Victoria Falls is the only waterfall in the world with a length of more than a kilometer and a height of more than hundred meters thus the largest in Africa. The main attraction there is the Devil’s Pool, where you swim close the the edge of the waterfall separated by a narrow bridge.

  4. Cairo, Egypt
    Initially, I had assumed that Egypt was overrated and I wanted nothing to do with it but after doing my research, I must say that it is at the top of my list now. From Cairo Museum to the Pyramids of Giza to Al Azhar Park and the Mosque of Muhammad Ali. These are all an Architecture enthusiasts dream.
