Africa Trip Design Guide

 

Africa is big.  Really big.  With over 50 countries, it's important to keep distances in mind and realize you can't do it all in a 10-day vacation  

 

In the Southern region of Africa, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, and Mozambique offer good flight and transfer routes that can be incorporated into a trip.   Traveling to the Seychelles or Madagascar will require more time but direct flights depart from South Africa.        

In East Africa, countries include Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, and Ethiopia

 

In North Africa, two popular destinations are Egypt and Morocco.  Learn more about each region below.
