I didn’t know much about what there was to see in Africa before moving here. In fact I didn’t know much about Africa at all (if that sounds like you, too, take a look at this video. You might be surprised) .
I did have a pretty good sense of what the countries of North Africa were like – Egypt gets a lot of air time. But now I know what there is to see and do in South Africa (wine country, Big 5 safaris), Tanzania (Mt. Kilimanjaro), Djibouti (whale sharks), Zanzibar (spices and beaches), Rwanda (gorillas), Uganda (more gorillas), Zambia (Victoria Falls), Namibia (desert), Mozambique (beaches), and Kenya (more beaches, more safaris). Then there’s the whole western part of the continent. Sadly that’s not a good place to go at the moment but someday I’d like to visit Ghana, Liberia, and Senegal.
Next week I’m going to Madagascar for my October break. And we all know what’s there, right?
