Africa is a vast continent with various travel opportunities—whether you want to see the pyramids of Egypt; spot lions, elephants, and zebras on safari in Kenya; or sip on a glass of Cape port in South Africa. For many of our #JSETT chat participants this week, these three experiences barely scratch the surface of their Africa bucket lists. They shared their memories and must-sees, highlighted below:
Q1: Africa is a huge continent with many places to see. Where have you been or do you want to go?
A1: I love Africa! I've been to Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania and Morocco, South Africa& now living in Egypt. Want to see all #JSETT— Jess is a Wanderer (@Jessisawanderer) October 22, 2015
Q2: For those who’ve been to Africa, where do you suggest going first and why?
A2: Morocco is an easy trip from Spain and very interesting to explore. For southern Africa, South Africa may be a good starting pt. #JSETT— Vicki Mattingly (@VoyagerVicki) October 22, 2015
A2: Namibia was described to me as "Africa for beginners" and I'd agree. #JSETT— Shane Dallas (@TheTravelCamel) October 22, 2015
Q3: Which part of Africa could you visit over and over again?
A3 Only been to the seychelles, but wouldn't mind going back. Get place to relax and unwind #JSETT— Drive on the Left (@driveonleft) October 22, 2015
#JSETT A3 I'd say the safari lodges in South and East Africa or the beaches on East Africa hold potential for many visits— Brooks Cruise Svc (@BrooksCruiseSvc) October 22, 2015
Q4: Political issues are a concern for visitors. How do you suggest they avoid any conflict they don’t want to be a part of?
A4 Talk to fellow travelers/bloggers who are there or just been there. Can give the best perspective #JSETT— Drive on the Left (@driveonleft) October 22, 2015
#JSETT A4 Don't get involved in protests and keep out of political discussions. Enjoy seeing and experiencing life there— Brooks Cruise Svc (@BrooksCruiseSvc) October 22, 2015
A4: Look up current events, or better, a local blogger and ask for safety tips! I interviewed 2 before I went to volunteer in SA! #JSETT— Alyssa Ramos ✈️ (@AlyssaRamos) October 22, 2015
A4: Keep a low profile, dress appropriately, stay out of trouble #JSETT— Karla Erovick (@IntnlGal) October 22, 2015
Q5: How do you suggest finding a safari tour that is truly active in supporting wildlife conservation?
A5 Research!! I have visions of volunteering and assisting in Animal Conservation and would make sure that my beliefs are aligned #JSETT— KAT VON B (@TRAVELINGGREEK) October 22, 2015
Q6: What landmarks or natural wonders are must-sees throughout Africa?
#JSETT A6 Table Mountain in Cape Town is on my list— Brooks Cruise Svc (@BrooksCruiseSvc) October 22, 2015
A6: What I look forward to seeing in Africa--dunes in Namibia, Victoria Falls, underground rock churches in Lalibela, Ethiopia #JSETT— Vicki Mattingly (@VoyagerVicki) October 22, 2015
A6: Atlas Mountains - Morocco, Safari, Pyramids, Nile River... #JSETT— Karla Erovick (@IntnlGal) October 22, 2015
