Explore and Connect off the beaten path

So you’ve hiked to the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town, checked into a quaint riad in Marrakech, or maybe dreamt about visiting the untouched lands of Seychelles, but there are myriad lesser-visited destinations, worthy of visiting on the continent of Africa. This week, we’re highlighting just a few to add to your travel bucket list. Africa is filled with dramatic landscapes, remarkable wildlife, iconic adventures, and all of these places will check your wanderlust boxes without being surrounded by thousands of tourists. Explore dreamy yellow sand dunes for as far as the eye can see in the Sossusvlei Desert in Namibia. Dive into the remote reefs of Rolas Island off the coast of Mozambique. Kayak through Gisenyi’s sparkling clear waters or traverse through rainforests in Gishwati-Mukura National Park while admiring chimpanzees and monkeys. With over 50 countries, we know it can be daunting deciding where to visit when planning a trip to Africa, and if you’re traveling far, you may want to visit more than one. Here are some good places to start...
