If history isn’t your thing, Egypt is also known for pristine beaches and some of the best scuba diving sites in the world.
This stunning country could not be more perfect for those in love with nature! The highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, is in Tanzania as well as the Serengeti National Park where you can catch glimpses of elephants, lions and rhinos. Even better, Tanzania also has the tropical island Zanzibar where you can swim with whale sharks. How awesome is that!
