Africa’s Top 10 Tourist Destinations

Choosing the top ten destinations in Africa is no easy task given the size and diversity of the continent. Below you’ll find my the favorite places to visit in Africa for most international tourists. Planning your trip around any of these destinations will be worthwhile.

1.  Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe/Zambia


There is nothing quite like getting a thorough soaking from the roaring, powerful Victoria Falls. The spray is so impressive from the look-out points, it feels like you are in the middle of a torrential rainstorm.

The Victoria Falls lie in between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Southern Africa.

The Victoria Falls are just over 1 mile wide (1.7 km) and 355 feet (108 m) high. During the wet season over 500 million liters (19 million cubic feet) of water plummets over the edge into the Zambezi River. This incredible amount of water generates a huge amount of spray which shoots 1000 feet into the sky and can be seen 30 miles away, hence the nameMosi-oa-Tunya (Smoke that thunders).
