20 Experiences that will make you want to visit Africa

Africa offers countless epic lifetime experiences for those willing to venture deep into its lands

Africa! Oh, Africa! I get excited by simply writing or pronouncing its name. The truth is that Africa has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. And I’m quite sure it all begun when I was a young boy and would spend hours on end in front of the television watching Animal Planet and The Lion King. But my love and devotion for Africa really solidified the day I set foot on African soil for the first time. From that day on, and please allow me to be a bit over dramatic here, I understood how amazingly powerful and beautiful the world really was.

Over the years Africa has given me a wide collection of extraordinary experiences I will treasure forever. And due to those enriching experiences, I feel it only makes sense for me to write this article and tell you why you should go to Africa yourself.

Sit back, turn the “Circle of Life” tune on and come with me as we visit some of Africa’s most astonishing sites.
