It is an almost entirely isolated landmass with only a small land bridge in the northeast, connecting the African Mainland with Western Asia. 48 countries share the area of mainland Africa, plus six island nations are considered to be part of the continent.

There are many countries that benefit heavily from tourism like Uganda, Algeria, Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, Morocco, Tunisia, Ghana, Tanzania and Island Nations such as Reunion Island, Seychelles, Mauritius, Madagascar.

The best time to visit Africa moves from the south to east to north, depending on the wildlife and rainfall. The dry winter between May to October is the best time for game viewing in Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa. To catch East Africa’s Great Migration, traveling between June-early September is the best. Jan-Feb and June-Sept are the best to book your South Africa tour.
Wildlife safaris, trekking, volcanoes and adventure sports are things that should be on your bucket list. Africa is home to the world’s largest desert, its longest river, its hottest temperatures, and hundreds of dialects and cultures spread among a billion people. But as mind-boggling as it seems at first, you’ll be amazed how intimate it feels once you get to know it. This is adventure’s last great frontier.
