Africa – it is a vast continent with a huge variety of very different countries, cultures and scenery. If you fancy an African vacation, you could have anything from Morocco to the north all the way down to South Africa. African temperatures do tend to be on the warm side but there are many destinations where the average American will not feel uncomfortably hot. However, parts of Africa do receive large quantities of rainfall so it is best to check weather patterns before deciding on when to visit.
Unfortunately, there are several African countries which could have tourist appeal but are currently suffering conditions which would not make them suitable for foreigners coming on vacation. Also, an intending vacationer has to be aware that the general standard of living throughout most of Africa still lags far behind ours in the US. Some may see that as a disadvantage while others may see it as an opportunity for a vacation at a more economical cost.
Another factor to consider is the current state of airline connections between your home State and an African country where you would like to take a vacation. Some countries can be very difficult to get to while others have such good connections that low cost air fares might be available.
Choose Your African Destination
With the above in mind, The Republic of Kenya presents a good choice for many would be African vacationers. The Indian Ocean fronts the south-east coastline of Kenya and boasts many fine beaches that are ideal for anyone wanting a beach based vacation. Inland there are large tracts of savannah style grasslands that are rich with the wild life that we all associate with Africa. This makes Kenya the perfect choice for a safari type holiday (shoot only with a camera please).
Sort Out The Details
It is still possible to simply board a plane fly to your Kenyan destination and then decide where to stay and where to go once you clear the airport. This may work out well for backpackers but is likely to bring only disappointment to someone taking a two week vacation.
These days, there is no excuse not to research your vacation and make decisions before you go. Online resources can easily guide you to the accommodations best suited for your circumstances. Should you stay in a hotel, guest house, campsites or, opt for one of the many Serviced Apartments In Kenya? The websites that help you with these choices will usually have guidance on beach facilities and safari trips so that you can have as much ready in advance as possible.
