1.The Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Kenya’s Maasai Mara is a wonderland of spectacular scenery, colorful culture, and unparalleled wildlife-spotting opportunities. The park connects to Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, and together, the two parks create the ultimate safari destination

02.Victoria Falls, Zambia

Victoria Falls is defined by plunging, roaring water falling beneath a mystical veil of spray. The falls’ indigenous name is “The Smoke That Thunders’, and there’s nothing quite like witnessing its power from one of the mist-soaked lookout points

3.Pyramids of Giza, Egypt

The Pyramids of Giza represent one of man’s greatest architectural feats. Built more than 5,000 years ago, the Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the world’s oldest tourist attractions, and the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World to have survived the ravages of time intact

4.Djenné, Mali

Founded in 800 AD, Djenné is one of sub-Saharan Africa’s oldest cities. Located in central Mali on an island in the Inland Niger Delta, Djenné was a natural hub for 17th and 18th Century traders who shuttled their goods between the Sahara Desert and the forests of Guinea
