By November 3, 2016Travel
Elephants are just one of the many amazing animals you'll see when you visit Africa!

Africa is increasingly becoming a hot destination. With amazing safaris and new cultural experiences, setting your sights on Africa in 2016 is sure to give you bragging rights amongst friends and family for years to come.

But where to go?
Here’s what we recommend checking out:


When you hear “Madagascar,” your first thought may be quirky animals from the New York Central Zoo. However, Madagascar is nothing like New York. Located off the eastern side of Africa, Madagascar is nearly the size of California. Instead of the concrete jungle you’ll find in New York, Madagascar is filled with rainforests, beaches, and reefs. Snorkel and kayak in the crystal clear waters or explore some of the unique flora and fauna in one of their many national parks.

Giant baobabs grow across Africa and Madagascar

Look for giant baobab trees when you visit Madagascar. Some are over 1,000 years old.


Check out the immense amount of wildlife in this equatorial African country. There are safaris that inspire and rainforests that stretch deep into this progressive country. Known as central Africa’s most travel-friendly destination, a trip to Gabon gives you access to picturesque landscapes, white beaches, and rivers. With 10% of the county protected parkland, the elephant, hippo, and gorilla population is thriving. Just don’t forget to immerse yourself into Gabon’s amazing culture.


South Africa

Few places are more geographically diverse location than South Africa. Roughly the same size as Mexico, South Africa has everything: the Kalahari Desert, Winelands, and Kruger National Park. You’ll wonder how you could ever experience it all. Visit the vibrant cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town. Take a cable car to the top of Table Mountain. Smell the sweet scents at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Treat yourself to the delicious cuisines and wines of South Africa.
