If I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa.

There is no doubt that travelling by airplanes can save a lot of time when your vacation includes covering a number of destinations. In fact, it’s a lot less tiring than spending hours bumping up and down in African pot holes. But you definitely miss out the cultural presentation of Africa, which can be experienced only when you take to the road and feel the atmosphere of continent up close and personal.

Africa has her mysteries and even a wise man cannot understand them. But a wise man respects them.

— Miriam Makeba

Travelling by road

If you are more of an independent traveler who like to move around freely without depending on others, hiring a car is the best possible option. Although it can be expensive, it will give you a once in a lifetime experience of crossing the borders of different African nations and experiencing its majestic beauty all around.

The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa – for he has so much to look forward to.

— Richard Mullin

Be safe

When in Africa, it’s easy to get carried away but the relaxed vibes but it’s important to stay safe. Getting on the back of a Boda-Boda (motorcycle taxi) can be cheap and great for a short distance, but many accidents do happen as most people don’t wear helmets. If you find yourself in such a situation, insist to have a helmet or find a different driver. If your taxi driver acts intoxicated, get out of the car, because he is actually wasted. You get the point. Dive into Africa, but use common sense.
