You’ve seen the photos. Now go live them.
The Southern tip of Africa
South Africa is the southernmost country on the African continent, and Cape Agulhas is its most southern tip. The rocky headland lies at 34 degrees, 51 minutes south latitude–a mere 2 miles from where Antarctica begins!
Cape Agulhas has been a trade route for centuries because it’s easy to navigate and has a natural harbor with good anchorage for ships. In fact, it’s still an important port today as you can see from these photos taken by photographer Jason Edwards:
Sossusvlei and Deadvlei
Sossusvlei and Deadvlei are two of the most famous landmarks in Africa. Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan located in the Namib Desert. It’s one of the largest white sand dunes in the world, at more than 300 meters tall (1,000 feet).
Deadvlei is another white clay pan that’s even more dramatic than its neighboring attraction–it was once an oasis with vegetation until it dried up over time and became covered by sand from nearby dunes. Today it looks like something out of science fiction: a barren landscape dotted with dead trees standing upright like sculptures alongside their bleached counterparts on top of nearby dunes; all this surrounded by an endless expanse of golden sand stretching out into infinity.
Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world. It’s located in Zambia and it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but you probably already knew that. What you might not know is that this incredible natural wonder was formed by erosion over millions of years as water from Lake Kariba cascades down onto a narrow gorge below. The falls are fed by the Zambezi River and are 1,708 feet wide and 354 feet high!
The Sahara Desert
If you’ve ever fantasized about exploring the Sahara Desert, this is your chance. The largest hot desert in the world covers most of Northern Africa and it’s home to the Kel Tamasheq people. The desert is also the world’s largest source of sand, which makes sense considering that it has some of the highest sand dunes in all of Africa (and probably even beyond).
Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano and the highest mountain in Africa. It’s also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Tanzania, thanks to its proximity to other sights like Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. The mountain’s highest peak, Uhuru Peak (meaning “freedom” in Swahili), sits at 19,341 feet above sea level–that’s over 6 miles high!
The mountain was formed when lava flowed out of a volcanic vent 13 million years ago; since then it has eroded into its current shape as erosion continues to carve away at its slopes today. While you’re looking at these incredible photos of Mount Kilimanjaro from all angles above ground level or below ground level where nobody else gets to go see them… think about how awesome it would be if YOU were there too!
The Namib Desert
The Namib Desert is a coastal desert in southern Africa. It’s the oldest desert in the world, and it’s home to many different types of animals and plants that have adapted to live in such harsh conditions. The desert is also known as the Skeleton Coast because it has many shipwrecks along its coast due to its shallow waters and strong winds blowing from land over sea.
Livingstone is a town in Zambia, named after the Scottish explorer David Livingstone. The town is home to the Victoria Falls, one of Africa’s most famous natural wonders and an important tourist destination for visitors from all over the world.
Livingstone has a population of around 20,000 people who live along its banks or within its borders. It’s also known for its proximity to Zimbabwean border; indeed some locals speak Shona as well as English!

Go to Africa.
The next time you’re feeling down, or when you just need a break from the hustle and bustle of life, go to Africa. You will have an amazing time.
There are so many things to see and do there that it is impossible for me to list them all here. So instead I’ll focus on some highlights:
- The animals! You won’t believe how many different kinds of animals live in Africa until you see one with your own eyes. There are lions and elephants and giraffes (did anyone else know there were giraffes?). They’re beautiful! And some of them can be dangerous too–but don’t worry about that right now because this article isn’t about how dangerous animals are; it’s about how great they look when they aren’t attacking people or eating their faces off like zombies from The Walking Dead would do if given half a chance at survival outside an urban environment where people tend not walk around alone after dark unless they’ve got something sharp hidden under their clothes just in case something happens during those long stretches between streetlights along rural highways…
I hope that these photos have inspired you to go on an adventure. Africa is a beautiful continent, full of diverse landscapes and cultures. There are so many things to see and do, from exploring ancient ruins to swimming with dolphins! If you’re ready for an unforgettable experience in nature then pack your bags today because the journey begins now.
