Africa has been for some years one of the favorite tourist destinations for travelers. This is probably due to the warm climate, the exotic, mysterious, distant and almost esoteric feel that makes it a fascinating and interesting as well as adventurous destination. Tourist agencies therefore have developed very special holiday packages for every type of traveler ranging from groups, singles to families and couples. The main types of travel are the Safari, the Honeymooners, award travel or business conferences and business meetings. Africa has to offer crystal clear seas, lakes, savannah, nature reserves, spectacular and rare animals, primitive tribes and more. Perhaps this is why it is so beloved because it is the only place where you can ride a camel, watch a majestic lion and explore the savannah.

In Africa, there are also great millennial rivers such as the Nile, the longest river in the world with 6.671 kilometers. One of the most visited states is South Africa which lies at the southern tip of the continent. These enchanting shores are amazing but even more fascinating are the desert areas. The whole country is impressive with its museums and its natural beauty but also with its history. South Africa is a patchwork of different people as well as being the most Western state of the African peninsula.
