6. Marrakesh, Morocco
Situated at the foot of the majestic Atlas Mountains, Marrakech Royal is a big, noisy, polluted and magnetic city that has many things worth to be seen. If you decide you drop in, spend at least 3 days, stay at Riyadh (palace) in the Medina (old city), because almost everything interesting is concentrated in this part of town. Majorelle botanical garden is the perfect place to escape for a moment by the abundance of colors, sounds and smells. Otherwise, one of the busiest places is the square of Marrakech "Jamal El Fna”. At night there, you can eat from any of the numerous stalls of delicious Moroccan dishes while listening to street musicians, drummers, the narrator of the story and watch the Cobra tamer and trainer of monkeys. Authentic Moroccan cuisine is easy to make with these main dish recipes for fish, chicken, beef, lamb and beans.
7. OMO River, Ethiopia
OMO River is a fantastic destination. It’s a remote location and has a difficult road to drive there, the cause is the traditional customs and beliefs of more than 50 tribes who inhabited the region are to remain fully preserved in its authentic form. It is preferable to choose an organized trip to avoid confusion, which would be encountered if you decide to travel around alone there. What to expect is meeting with the distinctive culture of African peoples.
8. Virunga Mountains
Given that only 700 mountain gorillas have survived there, the ability to watch them in the wild is an experience which few can boast. About 300 mountain gorillas live in Virunga volcanic region on the border between Range Ruganda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo in East Africa. Time for which you can watch the gorillas is limited, but it certainly makes the experience less exciting.
If you like adventure, what could be more exciting than to climb the highest mountain in Africa? Kilimanjaro is a mountain, 599 meters high, which may be obedient within six days. The news is that everyone who is in good shape and is determined to climb it can do. There is no need for any previous training or special equipment.
10. Zanzibar, Tanzania
Zanzibar fully deserves to fall in the rankings of the top ten destinations of the black continent because of its impressive history and amazing beaches. Located in the Indian Ocean to the coast of Tanzania Zanzibar is now part of Tanzania, which is why it took over some years to establish itself as a leading commercial center in the region. Known for its spices, this Island group had an important turning point in the slave trade to the Arab rulers. The Arab influence is felt everywhere in Zanzibar, but especially in the Stone Town with its beautiful traditional houses, narrow alleys, and the Sultan's palace and many mosques.
