Kenya travel guide

Nature & Parks · National Parks · Safaris
The savannahs of Kenya contain some of the most iconic sights in Africa, stirred in the minds of many when they think of the continent. Big cats, elephants, and rhinos remain major inhabitants of this vast country, with a number of safari centers running trips across the region's World Heritage-listed national parks. Trips to rural villages, where many travelers choose to join up various volunteer projects, represent some of the most inspiring and enriching things to do in Kenya.

Tanzania travel guide

4.1
Geologic Formations · Beaches · Safaris
Though the size and scale of Tanzania may be overwhelming, the people make it a personable and easy-going place to visit. The bigger cities not only offer good connections to the main natural attractions, but also feature bustling markets where locals sell fresh produce, snacks, and crafts. Smaller villages retain their long-held customs, beliefs, and artistic traditions. With the continent's highest peak, and some of the most animal-rich safaris available, Tanzania holidays tend to dart between the big and bold, and the personal and low-key.

Comoros travel guide

3.6
Nature & Parks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Museums
Exotic Comoros offers a different take on the archetypal paradise island. The remote collection of varied landmasses endured a turbulent history, with nearly 20 coups since its independence in 1975. The political situation has calmed in recent years, allowing tourism in Comoros to develop thanks to a good offering of white-sand beaches, volcanic peaks, and underwater worlds rich in wildlife. Devoutly Muslim, the locals frown upon the consumption of alcohol and bare skin--few foreign tourists are bothered by this, as most come for the off-the-beaten track adventuring rather than beach-bar relaxation.
