Africa is an intriguing intermingling of cultures, languages and landscape. In addition to native African cultures, one can find heavy Middle Eastern influence throughout Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. Travel to Morocco to enjoy the diverse climate which ranges from the cool, wet Mediterranean coastal region to the dry, hot deserts of the south. Visit Rabat, Morocco's capitol and sample couscous, a semolina wheat served with meat and vegetables, or kefta, beef or lamb stew.
The continent's western and central locations provide lush, humid rainforests to explore amidst the Congo River Basin. Half of Africa's animal species make their home here. The Congo River is one of the world's largest rivers, second only to the Amazon River.
African safaris are certainly the choice for wildlife enthusiasts to experience the wild firsthand. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest migrate each year between the plains of Kenya and the Serengeti of Tanzania with their predators following close behind them.
If adventure is what you're looking for, tracking mountain gorillas in Rwanda may be for you. The Genocide Memorial Museum provides further education on Rwanda's civil war, and the Nyungwe National Park is home to one of the largest rainforests in central Africa.
