And while there’s been economic and political turbulence, the safety of tourists hasn’t come into question.” Attactions listed include Victoria Falls and the Zambezi National Park.

Eritrea is said to be “firmly back on the travel map… Having struck new peace agreements with neighbouring Ethiopia and Djibouti, this little-visited African country is opening up to adventurous travellers as well as those with an eye for architecture.”

KwaZulu-Natal is described as South Africa’s safari hotspot, while Uganda is noted for the opportunity to see mountain gorillas.
