3. Table Mountain, South Africa

The imposing, flat-topped natural wonder, Table Mountain, is one of Africa’s most iconic sights.

Looming large over sunny Cape Town, this giant is scalable by foot if you’ve got the puff or by cable car if you fancy treating yourself to an easy ride. Once you get up to the top, there are winding paths to explore and the sprawling city to gaze down at. Check the weather before you go as the cable car doesn’t run in strong winds.

4. Maasai Tribes, Kenya

The Maasai tribespeople are well known for their distinctive look, with massive ear piercings and bright red traditional dress.  

Getting a chance to learn about the lifestyle of this semi-nomadic people could include anything from watching one of the famous jumping dances, trying the local cuisine or finding out about their traditional cattle farming practises. Make sure to choose a community-conscious, sustainable tour operator to visit with.

5. Victoria Falls, Zambia

On the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

The sight’s indigenous name, Mosi-oa-Tunya, should give you some idea of the drama of this spectacle, as it literally means “the smoke that thunders”, with an average flow of one million litres per second. If you’re brave enough to get involved, you can bungee jump, white water raft, jet boat, kayak, canoe and horseback ride through the waters near the foot of the falls.
