7 Reasons You Should Backpack in Africa Instead of Europe

Posted on

3. Natural Beauty

Mountains that roll into the sea and spill into turquoise waters, endless deserts invite orange sunsets that make you question every other sunset you’ve ever seen… green canyons stretch into bumbling rivers and moreover you can still get epically lost in this magic. Agh! But for real – it’s still wild – you can still be relatively alone in some of the most majestic landscapes nature ever created.

The only man I envy is the man who hasn’t yet been to Africa – for he has so much to look forward to. – Richard Mullin

4. Culture

The rainbow nation of South Africa has 11 national languages alone. As Africa was divided up during colonialism, tribes don’t exactly fall under western boundaries. Each nation in Southern Africa has an incredible flavor all to its own. The richness and depth of culture is unlike anything I have experienced elsewhere.They may not have the castles of Europe, but Africa holds a confusion of cultures that is still being sorted out in front of our eyes. This is an incredible time to travel Africa as you can literally see history unfolding.
