What is the best country in Africa?
After about ten countries in Africa (all but Egypt sub-Saharan) the one I'm most eager to return to is South Africa as it was so diverse in cultures, geography, history, wildlife, you name it, and I felt like I could spend twice as much time there as I did in actuality.
"I travel not to escape but to find reality"
Egypt for the Antiquities the sights and smells, just take it all in, we had such a great time sailing down the Nile and seeing the world go by.
Kenya, we stayed in a small town on the coast called Watamu for 5 weeks right next to the beach. It was the most perfect location we hired small sailing boats snorkeled to the reefs went out with a local fisherman for the day and had a wonderful time relaxing after a 7 week safari. The people are extremely friendly hard working but in the main very poor.
South Africa was a surprise, Cape town is very Western and modern city although there are shanty towns on the outskirts were thousands of people live in poverty. We rented a car and traveled along the garden route staying in small budget hotels and hostels along the way, an interesting and beautiful coastline and well worth the travel.
Namibia, sand and more sand, walking on the dunes is a fantastic experience, there's a great coastline and some lovely towns to visit on the coast.
Loved Zanzibar Island the beaches are magnificent.
Wow the Masai Mara is a must, we saw more leopards cheetahs and lions in groups here than anywhere else.
If your thing is seeing the wonderful wildlife which is in Africa in abundance I would advice taking a camping safari, you don't have to pay the earth and you really get to see and be part of the amazing National Parks and Reserves. We traveled from South Africa to Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Zanzibar Island, Kenya.
