Best things to do and see in Africa

Africa is the second largest continent in the world, both by size and by population. As a result, the continent is wildly diverse and a melting pot of different cultures. It's home to 54 different countries, many of which have a variety of annual events worth experiencing. One of the most popular places to travel to is South Africa, which hosts one of the biggest jazz festivals on the continent. The Cape Town Jazz Festival is held at the International Convention Centre in Cape Town CBD during the last weekend in March or the first weekend in April. The festival typically attracts close to 40,000 people every year and features a wide range of local and global acts. If you're flying during July, consider heading to Zanzibar to experience the International Film Festival that lasts nine days. You'll see concerts, readings, art exhibitions, and a plethora of film screenings.

The cuisine you'll find in Africa largely depends on where on the continent you end up. Most local food combines fruits, vegetables, grains, milk, and meat products, with some dishes having a European, Arab, or Asian influence. If you're taking advantage of Africa flight deals and heading to North Africa, you can go to Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, or Tunisia. In these countries, one of the main staples is couscous, which is growing in popularity. Apart from that, you'll find things like olives and olive oil, and thanks to the Romans, spices such as nutmeg, saffron, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. In East Africa, the population heavily relies on vegetables and grains, with Ugali being a typical dish served with stews and soups throughout the area. Ugali is a corn-based starch that's similar to Polenta. Southern Africa has the most diverse cuisine thanks to its widely diverse cultural influences from Europe and Asia. Seafood is popular in coastal countries, as well as fruits and vegetables. South Africa is known for its form of barbecue, which they call a braai. This typically consists of a fire made with charcoal or wood and features a wide range of meat products, including beef, lamb, chicken, and pork. A braai is often accompanied by a range of salads, beer, brandy, and the famous "braaibroedtjies." These are either two slices of bread or bread rolls filled with butter, onions, cheese, and tomatoes, toasted on the grill.

Africa is the second-largest continent and the second-most-populous continent on the planet. It offers visitors many things to see and do throughout the country, ranging from visiting traditional African tribes to national parks with an array of wildlife to mountain peaks and the world's longest river, the Nile. There's no shortage of things to find on this expansive continent. Book flights to Africa and make your way to Kenya to spend time with the Maasai people, who still live as nomadic cattle herders. If you make your way to the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, you'll find the world's largest waterfall, Victoria Falls, a top choice for many adrenaline junkies. The "Devil's Pool" is located in a protruding rock lip in the falls where visitors can take a dip. Bwindi Forest National Park in Uganda is the only place in the world where you can trail Mountain Gorillas. Namibia is another popular destination where many travellers go to sandboard down some of the largest sand dunes in the world. Make your way to the Serengeti during the Great Migration and go hot air ballooning as close to a million wildebeest and thousands of Zebras make their way from the Serengeti to Maasai Mara over a six month period.

If you're travelling to Africa as a British citizen with a full passport, most countries won't require you to have a visa before arriving, though you will need to confirm this depending on where you're travelling. Generally, your passport will need to be valid for three to six months after your arrival date.
