[:RU]10 most interesting places in Africa[:]

[:RU]In recent years, ratings have become very popular. On the one hand they look conception somehow primitive, opinion formers and subjectively. On the other hand, in my opinion, help to structure a large amount of information and overcome a bunch of water and informational noise. I’ve also decided to wipe the rating of the most interesting places in Africa.

One could, of course, the topic podzheltit catchy headline like «10 places in Africa, which should definitely visit» or something like that.
Of course, the notion of «interesting» alludes to the subjectivity of the list: what is interesting one could be absolutely no interest to another. Therefore, it is the most subjective, but an unbiased list of African landmarks:)

The reasons why people go to Africa can be divided into three components — animals, people and nature. For me it is an axiom, which formed the basis of the list.

Valley of the Omo River. Ethiopia

unique place in Africa and, perhaps, throughout the world, where there are still original tribes minimally affected by civilization. Mursi, Surma, Arbor, Hamer … Each tribe originally on the way of life, traditions, decorations of his own body. The Omo Valley you like to move back in time for many centuries, and even millennia ago in the primitive communal system.
Of course, the proximity to the benefits of civilization has influenced the peoples of this part of Ethiopia. Affects are significant and continue the war. Many men instead of spears and bows are Kalashnikovs, for example. Local people have grown accustomed to the fact that to them regularly bring tourists, and even learned to reap the benefits. Do not expect that you will be able to take pictures for free exotic appearance of these proud sons of Africa. Each frame is calculated and payment is inevitable:)

Masai Mara National Park. Kenya

Perhaps the most hyped National Park in Africa, an icon of the tourism industry in Kenya, one of the best parks in the continent. Masai Mara often write in superlatives, and it should be noted, deservedly so.
The park is a continuation of the Serengeti, but in Kenya.
Masai Mara is known for its pride of lions, and in general is one of the best places in Africa to oversee large feline trio: lions, leopards and cheetahs.

And, of course, do not forget about the great migration in the Masai Mara passing from July to October, when the vast herds of wildebeest come to the park from the territory of Tanzania. Safari in the Masai Mara is the most spectacular.

Amboseli National Park. Kenya

Kilimanjaro is the same as the symbol of Africa’s Victoria Falls and Cape of Good Hope, and despite the fact that the mountain itself is located in Tanzania, the best and most picturesque view of it opens from Amboseli National Park (Kenya). That is why even many Tanzanian tourist sites and offline guidebooks do not stop to illustrate articles on Kilimanjaro photographs taken in Amboseli.
Elephants and Kilimanjaro, giraffes and Kilimanjaro, Maasai and Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro and African acacia … If you want to fill your portfolio these stories, then you Amboseli.
The park is good in and of itself, there is a whole big five, but that Kilimanjaro makes it special and unique.

The protected area of ​​Ngorongoro. Tanzania

The highest concentration of wildlife in the world in their natural habitat. This argument immediately gives a head start, and increases the attractiveness of the Ngorongoro conservation area. Animals are separated from the rest of the world the high slopes of the crater of an ancient volcano. As one client said: «Where they go on a submarine» Ngorongoro boasts big five, but relatively small and confined space make the safari one of the most spectacular in Africa.:)

Volcanoes National Park. Rwanda

The gorillas and golden monkeys — the stars of this national park located in the north of Rwanda, on the border of Congo and Uganda. I never met a single person, which these animals would be left untouched.
The park should not expect the traditional jeep safari when you drive up to the animals, and all that remains to you to do — is to click the button «masterpiece» on your precious camera. Moreover, a meeting with these majestic and pretty primates must be earned, having more than one kilometer of the mountain tropical rain forest. But from this experience, more vivid and more valuable pictures:)

Okavango Delta. Botswana

The uniqueness of the Okavango Delta speaks for itself. Not so in the world of direct river delta are bottled without going anywhere. Most wild and still yet untouched by civilization in Africa. Forget about the wi-fi, telephone, TV and so on. This tete-a-tete with the wildlife of Africa in its original form. And be prepared for the fact that wild animals are closer to you than you can imagine.
In the Okavango Delta a unique combination of rich wildlife (Big Five is found in the Moremi Reserve) and a variety of landscapes. Dream Gourmet Safaris:)

Avenue of baobabs. Madagascar

Another symbol of Africa — Baobab. Across Africa, these giants are scattered a lot, but that’s so much in one place …
In my opinion, only one avenue of baobab is reason enough to visit Madagascar. And if you add to it more lemurs and other endemic species of the island, doubts grow in confidence, that we should go, rather, to fly:)

Victoria Falls. Zimbabwe / Zambia

Victoria Falls is one of three biggest waterfalls in the world, and that’s it.

Sossusvlei. Namibia

The highest and scenic dunes in the world — is about Sossusvlei. The most mysterious valley of dead trees — it’s about Deadvlei. Namib Desert denominated in various lists of «new wonders of the world», «the natural wonders of the world», but never took place in the final. Nevertheless, in my opinion, is one of the most interesting places in Africa, where I had to go.

Cape Town. South Africa. Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope

When they wanted to ignore it is impossible to Cape Town. Do not give the Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope.
Mesa joined the list of seven natural wonders of the world, and the Cape of Good Hope is the same sign as the point of the Victoria Falls in Africa and Kilimanjaro.

PS I am far from thinking that this is the only list of the ten most interesting places in Africa. Perhaps someone thinks that it lacks the Kruger National Park in South Africa and the Serengeti, Blyde River Canyon (the world’s largest overgrown canyon) or scurvy Madagascar … and I agree, because in Africa, many places of interest:)
