Top 10 scenic cities in Africa

15 cities in Africa you want to visit

Admit it, you probably also have a vague idea of real African life. A large part of the world’s population still believes that only half-wild tribes live there, who know nothing about the achievements of civilization? However, there are cities in Africa, which can be compared with the most worthy places in Europe. Let’s take a virtual tour around them for now, and then, if we want? – and really.

Windhoek

This is the capital of the Republic of Namibia. A very clean, as in Europe, town. There are many Germans here who have had an indelible influence on the architecture and lifestyle of the townspeople. They even sell pure German Lager beer, which is still available in Germany itself and at most 17-20 countries.

Windhoek

I read the first “very clean town” and then “here are a lot of Germans.” Well, now I understand why =))

Dar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam is the economic center and cultural center of Tanzania. Here is the largest university in the country, luxurious beaches with blue lagoons, among which there are exclusive indoor areas adjacent to VIP-hotels. You can take a ferry to the famous island of Zanzibar. Since the city is exactly on the equator, it is warm and dry all year round. I would like to add, “and the flies do not bite,” but, alas, they do.

Gaborone

The capital of Botswana is famous for its political and economic stability. People here know for sure that the rate of their currency will neither rise nor fall, and they will always earn money for their bread. Just kidding, one of the largest diamond mining companies in the country and in general in the world is located here, in fact, it is the city-forming enterprise.

Gaborone

Algeria

Despite the fact that the city is right next to the desert, there is no extreme heat or debilitating cold. The city abounds with many cafes, architectural and culturally significant sights. It is in Algeria is located the famous Bardo Museum, the Roman Catholic Cathedral, the mosque Jamaa el-Kebir. In general, Algeria is a cosmopolitan and quite progressive city. There are a lot of white people here. And it’s also a city of hundreds of beaches: you can swim all you want.

Asmara

The capital of the Republic of Eritrea. One of the very few cities in the world with almost no crime. The bonus is a pleasant coolness (this is in Africa!) and rare, evenly spaced dodges. Asmara is culturally and economically developed. Here you can rent a good hotel, change money in the bank at a decent rate, pay by card, order a cab. In Africa, Asmara is considered a “little Rome,” and it’s a well-deserved title.

Harare

The capital of Zimbabwe bears traces of the English colonists, and even after independence in 1980 has remained a huge European province. There is the University of Zimbabwe, which is very good even by European standards. Harare is the center of international trade in textiles, citrus fruits, there are steel mills and factories for the production of non-ferrous metals, a tobacco plant. It would seem that the dominance of factories should reduce the ecology of the city to zero, but no! The city is studded with blooming purple jacarandas (incidentally, the magic trees, according to local beliefs), motley carpets of flower fields. Harare is called the “garden of flowers. By the way, trips to Victoria Falls and the Limpopo River are made from here.

Harare

Kumasi

Kumasi is the capital of Ashanti Province in the Republic of Ghana. There are so many plants and flowers, that the city can safely be called Eden. There is a wonderful museum of hats, palaces, smartly built universities. But the main reason why people come here from all over the world, here is the West African market Kedzheti, where there are more than 10,000 trade places. It is impossible to walk around the whole market even in a month of uninterrupted walking.

Kumasi

Kigali

It is easy for a newcomer to settle in here, because the city is, roughly speaking, swarming with expats from all over the world. They all get used to it and bring their original tones to the subculture of the city. It is a very controversial city with a mixed architectural style. For example, one of the famous business centers with 20 floors is located on the mountain, which is not particularly friendly mountain gorillas.

Kigali

Grahamstown

The city is located in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa and is considered the best training center for journalists. It hosts the world’s greatest National Arts Festival and SciFest. It is also a “city of saints”, as it concentrates more than 40 buildings of different confessions.

Grahamstown

Tunisia

The capital of Tunisia, Tunisia is the smallest capital in one of the smallest countries in Africa. It has accumulated a heritage of historical moments in a kaleidoscope of architectural compositions in the eastern and European style. And the Medina (the old part of town) is even listed as a UNESCO heritage site. Here, too, is the museum Bardo, which contains unique exhibits of Roman, Byzantine, Arab and Carthage era.
