The different tribes and languages on this continent can not be matched. There are those Americans who love to immerse themselves in other traditions and cultures; this is the place.

There are some of the most prominent tribes with over 11 million people. The Zulu tribes and the Masai are very famous. They have a long history deeply rooted in the land and traditions.

They are very welcoming people and always willing to share who they are and where they come from. There is nothing as remarkable as African hospitality. It truly makes for an authentic American African holiday.

Everything in Africa is So Big

Everything you do and see in Africa is in its natural state and s big. Most of the sights and adventures are mind-blowing. And we know that Americans love everything big.

So for their American African holiday, they can expect all the big things. They can explore the world’s biggest desert, the Sahara Desert.

They can follow the world’s longest river, The Nile. Botswana hosts the most significant inland delta, the Okavango Delta. They can trek up one of the seven summits, Mount Kilimanjaro.

There is the world’s oldest desert, the Namib desert. And of course, we can’t forget the world’s largest wildlife migration of the wildebeest in the Serengeti. They will also see the world’s largest land animals. So for everything big, Africa is the place.

Africa Offers the Best Place to go Camping

Camping in Africa is like no other in the world. This is the best way to truly experience being one with nature for an American African holiday.

They can connect with the land while being so close to the action. Africa offers camping sites right in the middle of the bush where all the wild animals are.

They can wake up and watch a herd of buffalos drinking water or go to sleep listening to the lion’s roars. And the campsites vary with the type of experience one wants to have.

They can rough it and sleep under the night sky with bare necessities or go all out and go glamping. There are now luxurious camping sites with all the luxuries of a hotel, but in camping set up.

Africa Offers Alive and Thrilling Cities

Africa is not just about the bush and the wild. The cities have a mixture of ancient history and modernisation. One could say the best of both worlds.

Morocco’s city Marrakesh will take you back in time with its magical median alleys. While in the south, Cape town is a vibrant cosmopolitan city with natural picturesque views and architecture influenced by different cultures.

So for an American African holiday, they can have both ancient and modern experiences in one place.
