Top places to visit in sub-Saharan Africa


Sub-Saharan Africa has remarkable biodiversity, ranking first in the world in terms of floristic richness. This country is fantastic, hosting 800 species of birds and 5.8% of the world's mammals. Also, the annual migration of South African sardines is so high that it can be seen from space.

South Africa is a unique and unforgettable tourist destination, a country of great diversity, full of the wonders of nature and moments that leave you speechless with admiration.

Here are the top 5 places to visit in Sub-Saharan Africa:

1.Victoria Falls in Zambia & Zimbabwe

Thousands of tons of waterfall in the place known as "the largest curtain of water in the world." Victoria Falls is an impressive waterfall on the Zambezi River, on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. "Mosi-oa-Tunya" (the thundering smoke) can be seen from afar, and the noise gives visitors proof of the power of water. In the Zambian part of the waterfall there are natural pools where you can swim, so don't forget to bring your swimsuit (and of course, the camera).

2.Fish River Canyon, Namibia

After the Grand Canyon of America, the Namibian location of the Fish River Canyon is the most spectacular in the world. With a ravine 160 kilometers long, 27 kilometers wide, and 550 meters deep, in some places, the river flows in the middle of this vast spectacle. Here you’ll find wide-open spaces, clean air, and overflowing landscapes.

3.Migration of wildebeest from Maasai Mara and Serengeti nature reserves

Antelope migration is one of the most amazing natural events in the world - an impressive move for the eyes of those who witness it. It takes place in open spaces, where hundreds of thousands of antelopes and zebras are heading for greener pastures. Mass migration is a tense journey for herbivores, as they are closely followed by various predators, who hope to take advantage of their weakness. And many times they do!

4.Dunes of Sossusvlei, Namibian Desert

This area, surrounded by magnificent dunes, is located in Namib Naukluft Park. Some of the massive sand formations reach an incredible height of 300 meters, often referred to as the highest in the world. When it rains, which happens very rarely, the Sossusvlei area is filled with water, and the turquoise lake that forms is maintained for a long time, as the clay layers filter the water very slowly. If you’re traveling solo, make sure you have a professional guide who’ll help you in emergencies.

5.Okavango Delta, Botswana

This delta is often incorrectly referred to as the Okavango Swamp. It is the largest land-based delta in the world and covers an area of 17,000 km2. Thousands of years ago, the drying up of Lake Makgadikgadi caused the appearance of this unique form of relief, which has since become an attraction for explorers and tourists alike.
