Five Emerging Africa Travel Destinations CheapOair Staff April 26, 2011 Interests Zanzibar is one of many African destinations worth visiting Just in the last couple years, Africa has emerged as one of the top places to visit in the world. Destinations at the top of that list have included Mt. Kilimanjaro, Cape Town, and Victoria Falls. The list could go on of the top places to visit in Africa, but we want to highlight some of the up and coming destinations that you may not be as familiar with. Cape Winelands. Located in South Africa, Cape Winelands often gets overlooked by Cape Town, Kruger National Park, and other more touristy areas of South Africa. However, Cape Winelands makes for a great long weekend trip. Located in the Western Cape, Cape Winelands is the largest wine producing region of South Africa. Rolling hills, small villages, and some of Africa's best food and wine makes the Cape Winelands an excellent retreat. Zanzibar. Africa isn't always renowned for its beaches, but Zanzibar is one beach location you'll want to add to your list. Zanzibar is located just off the coast of Tanzania, and a great destination for doing a weekend trip while traveling around East Africa. Featuring clear blue waters and unspoiled coastline, this is a beach lover's paradise. Zanzibar is quickly becoming a top snorkeling and diving destination in Africa. Bazaruto Archipelago. Bazaruto Acrchipelago is another great African destination for the beach lover. The archipelago is made up of several islands off the Mozambique coast. It may not have the same activities of some of the popular Caribbean islands, but it features many secluded beaches if you're looking for a break from the hustle and bustle and want a relaxing vacation. Rwanda. Long known for its devastation in the mid-1990s, Rwanda has bounced back to become one of the fastest growing tourism destinations in Africa. Despite public perception, Rwanda is a safe destination for travelers. One of the most unique things you can do in Rwanda, which you can't do in many African countries, is gorilla tracking. Seychelles Islands. Seychelles is another one of just a handful of Africa destinations that transports visitors to a beach paradise. This is a good destination to do along with Zanzibar, since Seychelles is just to the east. Seychelles actually isn't just one island, but over 100 islands. Although there are over 100 islands, there are just a few main ones, where you'll likely be spending most of your time.
