Travelling to Africa is more than just ticking a continent off your bucket list. It’s about experiencing new cultures, exploring nature’s bounty and jumping out of your comfort zone. Here are some tips to make sure you get the most out of every place you visit in the majestic continent:

Don’t Stress
Did you forget to pack something? Check the gift store. Can’t find transport? Take an unplanned walk and explore the town.

Wake Up Early
Start your day at sunrise and enjoy all the best attractions before the town gets crowded. The break of dawn is also a magical time for photos due to the soft light.

Go Exploring
Get immersed in the town you’re visiting. Checkout the local hotspots, learn more about the country’s culture and find exciting activities.

Taste Local Cuisine
Get an authentic African food experience by trying the local cuisine. Ask for recommendations from locals and taste everything at least once.

Learn the Language
It will be easier to make friends, find your way around and ask for directions if you learn a handful of words in the local language.

Whether you're a wide-eyed first-timer or a frequent visitor of the continent, Africa will always touch your soul. From theblazing desert in Namibia, to the sprawling rainforests of Uganda, to the rumbling Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, explore Africa with an open mind, adventurous spirit and these tips.
