20 Africa pictures that will spark your wanderlust

Everyone knows that I have a soft spot for Africa. I love it’s nature, the mystery, the people and how it always surprises me. I know that for many people Africa seems a little bit intimidating, maybe even scary. I want to show you just how beautiful it is! Here are some of my favorite photos from my favorite continent!

  1. I’ve never seen more beautiful skies than in Masai Mara. A safari in Masai Mara is one of those once in a lifetime experiences.

  2. Who knew that over 300 years old dead trees could be so beautiful. Sossusvlei is one of the most iconic places in Namibia and you should put it on your bucket list.

  3. Try to count the stars in the Namibian sky. I’ll never forget camping here. I’d choose this over any five star hotel. camping spitzkoppe Namibia
  4. Who doesn’t love flamingos? You can see them in Walvis Bay in Namibia. There were hundreds! Flamingo's in Walvis Bay Namibia

  8. The people are beautiful! These are women of the Datoga tribe in Namibia. women of the datoga tribe Tanzania
  9. You can eat on a rock in the ocean. Very fittingly this restaurant is called the rock. You can find it on Zanzibar.
  10. I don’t think this needs explanation. The beautiful beaches of Zanzibar are the perfect place to chill. 
  11. You can cycle alongside Zebra’s in hells gate NP. I think it’s one of the few places in the world where you are allowed to cycle alongside wildlife. 
  12. You’ll become a bird nerd like me, because they are so colorful and awesome! This is a malachite kingfisher. bird Botswana malachite kingfisher

  14. Go sand-boarding or quad biking on the sand dunes! sand dunes quad biking Namibia
