Africa, with its expansive landscapes and formidable animal life, is arguably the world’s second-biggest continent suitable for photographers. The same qualities that make these destinations camera friendly can also make it a one stop point for holidays.

The Great Migration, Tanzania is one of the most fascinating tourist centres to be found in Africa. Asides the river, tourist can expect to witness the thunder of hooves on dirt as more than a million wildebeest and several hundred thousand zebra make their annual migration.

Table Mountain, South Africa is another destination that is worthy of mention. Table Mountain makes Cape Town, one of the world’s best beach cities. Tourists are treated to cable car rides which are available to the top of the mesa, giving great views, fantastic sunrises and sunsets and great photo backgrounds.

Djmaa el Fna, Morocco has on some occasions been described as the world’s most exciting town square; Djmaa el Fna reminds you that you are still within Africa.with the presence of snake-charmers, henna-painters, story-tellers, date-sellers and orange juice vendors set up their stalls in the sleepy heat of the afternoon. Evenings in this amazing holiday spot bring in tribal drummers, ladyboy dancers and mobile restaurateurs selling delicious grilled meats, bread and salad.

Nyika Plateau National Park, Malawi is an unusual park with a plateau cut by numerous rivers that reach Lake Malawi by way of waterfalls off the eastern edge of the mountains.
The eastern border of the plateau also forms the wall of the Great Rift Valley.

The great domes of hills have gentle slopes, making Nyika perfect for both trekking and mountain biking as well as Jeep exploration. Antelope and zebra abound, and the park has one of the highest densities of leopard in Central Africa.
