Some of the world’s most stunning and captivating natural sights are situated in Africa’s mainland. If you are planning a safari to Africa, consider visiting Namibia, Kenya, and Tanzania for picturesque vistas and natural wonders unlike any other.
Namibia is home to the Namib Desert, and more specifically, Namib Naukluft Park. Here, you can gaze in awe at the natural wonder of stunning scattered sand dunes. To catch a glimpse of some of the world’s tallest sand dunes, head to Sossuslvlei where dunes can ascend up to a remarkable 300 meters high.
The Namib Naukluft Park is where you can also see the ancient “Welwitschia” attraction. This is a unique plant that somehow thrives in the desert’s unforgiving conditions. What is also so curious about these impressive plants is the fact that their average lifespan is between a curious 400-1500 years.
Kenya is home to Lake Borgia, which is situated just north of the equator. This saline and alkaline lake is a hotspot for geothermal processes. It spans 20 miles, and is adorned with a vast array of amazing hot springs and streaming geysers. This is a must-see for any photographer or geology aficionado.
Tanzania is where you will find the mesmerizing Ngorongoro Crater. This massive crater spans a whopping twelve-mile radius, which is truly a visual feast to behold.
Sometimes this area is even called a “modern day Garden of Eden,” so you can’t miss out on an opportunity to take in the 100 square miles of natural wonderland here. The Ngorongoro Crater is also home to Africa’s Big 5, in addition to an abundance of other wildlife. All of this considered, it would make an ideal destination for your next safari tour.
