South Sudan travel guide

2.3
Churches · Sacred & Religious Sites
South Sudan became the world's youngest nation in 2011, with the splitting of the continents largest state. The civil war that preceded the separation would inevitably leave deep traces on the psyche of the people and the stability of the political situation, but any initial optimism was quickly dimmed with government forces and rebel groups once more at war. The country boasts a fascinating mix of tribes and cultures and provides the setting for the second largest animal migration in the world, with antelopes crossing large swathes of the country. Despite this, holidays in South Sudan appeal to only a few daring travelers--tourism sector remains undeveloped and infrastructure lacking.

Democratic Republic of the Congo travel guide

3.8
National Parks · Mountains · Wildlife Areas
Democratic Republic of Congo possesses a wealth of scenic highlights, ethnic diversity, and a complex history. Inaccessible for many years due to conflict, the country once again draws adventurous and confident travelers looking for a different type of vacation. For those who can forego the usual home comforts and quickly adapt to challenging conditions, the rewards of a holiday in Democratic Republic of Congo are numerous--trekking through unspoiled forests, spotting endemic wildlife, and meeting welcoming, inspiring people.

Republic of the Congo travel guide

3.4
Architectural Buildings · Beaches · Museums
Most citizens of the Republic of the Congo live in the south of the country, with few residing outside the capital Brazzaville or Pointe-Noire on the coast. The capital represents a good place to start a holiday in the Republic of the Congo--it's a great jump-off point for voyages down the Congo River, the long and winding waterway that separates the country from its similarly named neighbor. Following the river to the north, the country becomes sparsely populated, with much of the area covered in lush rainforests. Two national parks, one in the far north and one in the center, represent the main focal points of the Republic of Congo itineraries, with a chance to spot lowland gorillas and forest elephants a major reason to visit for any genuine nature lover.

Angola travel guide

3.7
Museums · Lookouts · Outdoor Activities
Kuwait of Africa
Tourism in Angola thrives as the country's infrastructure develops and attractions are restored following years of internal conflict. Holidays in Angola usually involve at least a little time at the beach, with the Atlantic coastline featuring long stretches of sand, wide estuaries, and small islands close to the main cities. A wealth of national parks shelter a rich array of wildlife, including African icons such as lions, elephants, and leopards, with barely a tourist in sight to disturb the natural order of things.

Gabon travel guide

3.4
Beaches · Architectural Buildings · Shopping
Though tourism in Gabon remains a fledgling industry, the benefits of exploring this untempered place of wildlife-rich rainforests and ethnic diversity are numerous. A large percentage of the country remains protected as national parkland, allowing the dolphins playing in the Atlantic and the chimps and forest elephants to breathe a sigh of relief. The population includes around 40 different ethnicities, but the country has thankfully avoided the conflict and ethnic violence common among many of its neighbors.

Cameroon travel guide

Waterfalls · Art Museums · Zoos
Africa in Miniature
With swathes of rainforest, tall mountains, and desert landscapes, Cameroon features many of the most iconic African environments within its borders. Ethnic diversity represents one of the main attractions for visitors on holiday in Cameroon, with the country offering an introduction to the rich and varied cultures of the continent as a whole. Unlike many other African countries, Cameroon has remained a largely peaceful place, with different ethnicities living side by side in relative tranquility. Good roads and a decent train service make vacations in Cameroon mostly pleasant experiences, with most places of interests relatively easy to reach.

Equatorial Guinea travel guide

3.3
Churches · Nature & Parks · Landmarks
The mainland and offshore areas of Equatorial Guinea offer different flavors for off-road adventuring. The islands boast rainforests rich in endemic wildlife and volcanic rock formations, while the mainland offers a slew of gold beaches. The main port cities, on the mainland and off, hold few real charms for international visitors on vacation in Equatorial Guinea, with the emphasis much more on what lies beyond.

Central African Republic travel guide

3
Nature & Parks · Churches · Monuments
Natural attractions in Central African Republic include large forested areas rich in wildlife, especially lowland gorillas and elephants. One the most impoverished and historically unstable countries in the world, CAR remains known for its openness, its people praised for their welcoming nature and positive attitude. The Central African Republic Bush War began in 2004 and, despite a ceasefire in 2007, the fallout from the conflict and re-ignition of sectarian and political violence has made travel to the country inadvisable ever since.

Chad travel guide

3.5
Tourist Spots · Nature & Parks · Museums
With a desert in the north, an arid strip through the middle, and grassland areas in the south, Chad boasts a huge diversity of environments, wildlife, and plants. The country has always appealed to adventurous and daring travelers, with unadulterated landscapes and large animal populations the rewards for those bothering to visit. A ratcheting up of unrest, political violence, and terrorism in the 21st century has made travel to the country inadvisable, so it's not surprising mass tourism in Chad never really took off.

Sudan travel guide

3.9
Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Ruins
Splitting with South Sudan in 2011, Sudan remains a vast, diverse place. Desert and savannah landscapes dominate much of the north and south, while the east and west are primarily mountainous. Ancient Nubian ruins dot the desert areas in the north, with the section close to the Nile once home to great and powerful kingdoms. The main cities offer an array of interesting and evocative Islamic sites, with many centuries-old mosques and religious schools and market squares--all worthy of addition on a comprehensive Sudan itinerary.
