I can almost guarantee that at least one of these African destinations has not even crossed your mind as a dream destination. But can definitely guarantee that they are one-of-a-kind and truly spectacular.
Africa is such a varied continent. Exotic in the most indescribable ways. To feed your wanderlust, and mine, here's a list of some incredible dream destinations across Africa.
The Sinai Peninsula - Egypt
Often in the throes of political rife or civil unrest Egypt, as a whole, can get quite a bad reputation. But if you do your homework and travel to the right place at the right time, you'll almost certainly have an unforgettable dream vacation.
One such spot is the coastal city of Sharm-el-Sheikh on the tip of the Sinai Peninsula. Just make sure you check with your Embassy for travel advisories before planning your trip.
Skeleton Coast - Namibia
Skeleton Coast. Not exactly a name that conjures up dreamy visions of holiday and relaxation. But I've always thought there was something eerily intriguing about this harsh and extremely remote part of the world. With nothing more than the skeletons of many-a-doomed ships rusting on the sandy shores, the Skeleton Coast is most definitely a place I would love to fly over.
Marrakech Souks - Morocco
I'm not in love with crowded places and sensory overload, but you can bet I will be spending at least a few days immersed in the maze-like Medina of Merrakech. There's just something so dreamy about shopping the souks for your own version of a magic carpet or Aladdin's lamp.
Make sure you follow along on Instagram next month when I visit. It will be a challenge to control my urge to completely redesign my home with what I find in the souks!
The Serengeti - Tanzania
The Serengeti is home to the largest land mammal migration in the world and named on of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World; need I say more?
Giraffe Manor - Kenya
A magical hotel that can bring out the child in any adult, Giraffe Manor in Kenya has long been on my travel wish list. Waking up to have breakfast in the company of the resident giraffes right at your table sounds like a dream come true to me.
Kind of makes you want to buy a plane ticket huh? Exotic or ordinary, where are you traveling to this summer?
