Africa probably isn't at the top of most Singaporeans' list of places to visit, but did you know there are astonishingly beautiful beaches in Africa? This continent is home to more countries that you think you know and there's certainly a fair amount of research that needs to be done prior to travelling to Africa, especially if you have never set foot there. Every country in Africa is unique as are the must-sees there. Here, we at GET.com round up four must-sees in case you need some ideas of where to go.
4 Amazing Must-Sees In Africa
1. Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
The snowcapped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is not photoshopped in any way. This dormant volcano in Tanzania is, in fact, the highest mountain in Africa, soaring approximately 5,895m above sea level. Outdoorsy active travellers can consider trekking up the mountain - Mount Kilimanjaro is a major climbing destination after all. If you have the intent to see Mount Kilimanjaro in real life, do it soon as its glaciers are unfortunately shrinking, and ice fields vanishing.
2. Marrakech, Morocco
Morocco is one of the countries that I'd like to visit some day despite protests and incessant nagging from my mother who assumes the entire continent of Africa is unsafe. Besides the famous blue city, Chefchaouen, Marrakech makes a fantastic holiday destination. This former medieval city nestled in the western region of Morocco is home to palaces, gardens, mosques and stunning traditional marketplaces known as souks. Without a doubt, the charming Red City of Marrakech is magical in its own right.
3. Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town shines at the southern tip of the African continent. In addition to paying the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve a visit for sweeping views of the sea vistas, numerous wildlife encounters and hiking trails, there are plenty of picturesque beaches lining Cape Town's rugged coastline, too. This increasingly popular city is rich in culture yet close to nature. What more can you ask for?
4. Victoria Falls
Sitting on the Zambezi River at the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia is the majestic Victoria Falls. While any day is a good day to visit the Victoria Falls, word has is that those who visit during a full moon will get to delight in experiencing a mesmerising lunar rainbow! If you a waterfall kind of person, here are some other incredible waterfalls in the world that deserve more love.
