Africa

With the youngest population in the world and a range of tourist attractions waiting to be discovered by tourists, Africa seems poised to become the next big vacation destination for adventurous travelers. Impressively diverse in terms of religions and cultures, the continent is also home to some of the world's most impressive natural sites, including its longest river and tallest freestanding mountain. In addition to those, you'll have a chance to discover one of the hottest spots on the planet and lowest points in the world as you tour Africa. Nature packs a big punch here, but so do the continent's many cities. Just add places like Marrakech, Cairo, or Cape Town to your Africa itinerary and you'll discover thriving centers offering modern amenities and plenty of cultural sites to explore.
