If you’re looking for an adventure, then Africa is the place to go. It may not be the safest place in the world, but it’s certainly one of the most beautiful. From ancient ruins to animal-filled national parks, Africa will take your breath away with its beauty and history. If you’re planning a trip there soon, here are some landmarks that are sure to inspire:
Bunyadi, Cape Town
Bunyadi is a pop-up restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa. Its unique dining experience includes no electricity or electronic devices allowed and is completely vegan. The dress code at Bunyadi requires you to come dressed in white clothing, but this doesn’t mean you have to wear your Sunday best! You can wear anything white that makes you feel comfortable and confident while eating at this unique location.
Bunyadi is located inside an old warehouse building close to the V&A Waterfront area where many other restaurants are located as well as shops, bars and clubs so there’s plenty of things do after dinner if you want (or skip it altogether).
The Great Zimbabwe Ruins, Zimbabwe
Located in the southeastern part of Zimbabwe, The Great Zimbabwe Ruins are a World Heritage Site and one of Africa’s most impressive ancient monuments. Built by the Bantu people between the 11th and 15th centuries, they were once home to over 20 000 people who lived in stone houses with large courtyards, walls and defensive towers.
The ruins were first discovered by Europeans in 1868 when they were mistaken for ruins built by Arabs during their occupation of Mozambique (a colony under Portuguese rule). After further research, it was discovered that these ruins were actually built by African natives using local materials such as granite sandstone for construction purposes
Victoria Falls, Zambia/Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is often referred to as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The falls have been an attraction for centuries, attracting people from all over who come to marvel at their beauty and power.
The falls were named after Queen Victoria by David Livingstone in 1855 during his exploration of Southern Africa, who said: “No one can imagine the beauty of this place without seeing it.”
Sossusvlei Dune 45 Drive, Namibia
The Sossusvlei Dune 45 Drive is a great way to experience the Namib Desert. The drive takes you through vast sand dunes and red rock formations that are over 1,800 feet tall. You can get close to these structures, which makes for some stunning photos. There are lots of stops along the way where you can take photos with your friends or family members in front of them.
You might want to hike up one of these massive sand dunes–it’s not too hard if you’re in good shape! You’ll get an incredible view from up there that shows off how far away from civilization you actually are (and how hot it gets). If that doesn’t sound like fun enough already…you’ll also get views of Sossusvlei itself!
Tsodilo Hills, Botswana
The Tsodilo Hills are an ancient site of rock art, located in Botswana. These hills are known to be sacred to the San people and have been inhabited for over 4,000 years. The San people consider this place as a place where ancestral spirits dwell, so it is not surprising that there is such extensive rock art here. There are over 400 sites with thousands of paintings and carvings all over these hills!
The area is also home to one of the largest concentrations of rock art in Africa–over 1 million images have been recorded by archaeologists so far!
Robben Island, South Africa
Robben Island is an island off the coast of Cape Town. It was home to a prison for political prisoners during Apartheid, and it’s where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years of his life.
The island has since been turned into a museum and memorial, with guided tours available for visitors who want to learn more about its history.
Table Mountain Cableway, Cape Town
The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway is a cableway that ascends from Tafelberg Road in Table View, Cape Town, South Africa, to the top of Table Mountain. The cableway was built in 1929 by the Union Construction Company and is one of the oldest aerial cableways in the world. It can take up to 8 passengers per gondola at a time (although there are only 4 gondolas) and takes about 10 minutes for your journey upwards or downwards depending on whether you’re going up or down.
Tassili N’Ajjer National Park, Algeria
One of the most remarkable landmarks in Africa is Tassili N’Ajjer National Park. It’s located in southern Algeria, and it’s home to some amazing rock art that dates back thousands of years.
The park covers an area of over 3500 square kilometers (1372 square miles), making it one of the largest protected areas in Algeria. The park has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982 due to its cultural significance; its landscape has been shaped by humans over many generations, providing us with an insight into how they lived their lives thousands of years ago.
The best time to visit this landmark would be during spring or fall months–during summer months temperatures can reach over 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit), so consider bringing sunscreen! You’ll also want some good hiking shoes since there are lots of steep hills within Tassili N’Ajjer National Park; however if you’re not much into hiking then there’s plenty more things for everyone else too: mountain biking trails have been created throughout different sections within this national park so visitors can explore them at their leisure without needing any prior experience whatsoever!
