Africa is no doubt a developing continent with so much to offer. Each year, we see different countries upping their game and investing more in tourism. It may seem tempting to plan a trip to other countries on continents like Europe, Asia, America, and the likes, yet right here, across Africa, there’s a vast array of rich scenery and culture to explore. When we think African destinations, the mind quickly races to South Africa, Kenya, Zanzibar and of course, Egypt, but here are a few exciting new destinations to put on your ‘must-travel-to-‘ list.
1. Cape Verde
A good number of avid travelers have been booking tickets to Cape Verde or Cabo Verde as it’s alternatively known. When you see the beautiful scenery, beaches, and landscapes, you’ll definitely understand why. Cape Verde is situated off the West Coast of Africa and is still quite a new tourist attraction. It boasts of about 10 islands floating in the Atlantic Ocean, making it a great getaway for travelers who love blue and white-sanded beaches. It’s also a great escape from the cultures you’re familiar with into a brand new blended and rich culture. There’s a dominant African presence of course, with a bit of Brazilian blended in there. Cape Verde has in no doubt become the ‘African-Caribbean’ with tasty food, colorful towns, and exotic beaches. It’s similar to what you’d find in the likes of the Dominican Republic. Go through the busy town of Santa Maria, explore the beautiful surf stores, local restaurants, craft shops and cozy hotels lined up across the beaches. This should make you want to pack your bags and just… GO. Our travel package to Cape Verde would help you do that. Click here
2. Diana Beach, Kenya
Kenya is mostly known for her rich wildlife and abundance of safaris, but what no one ever mentioned is their equally breathtaking and beautiful beaches. Kenya Diani Beach has been behind the backdrops for many years while other popular parts took all the glory. In recent years, the Island popped out from obscurity, becoming a frequent destination for a good number of foreigners. There are miles and miles of gorgeous white sands to sink your feet into. There’s also aquamarine waters that are absolutely beautiful and great for those timely selfies. If you love adventure, then there’s the daring opportunity to swim with the sharks! Yes, you heard right. From February to April, the whale sharks are kind enough to share the waters with some fearless travelers who love the challenge (protected of course). It’s equally one of the most fabulous places to go kite-surfing or venture out for a great safari trip. Did you know INCEL Tourism has one of the best travel packages to Kenya?
