Africa

Backpacking Africa is not very popular yet. However, it has quickly become of my favorite travel destinations. In the last years, I traveled throughout Northern, Eastern and Southern Africa. I love backpacking Africa, because it’s adventurous, friendly and has beautiful landscapes and amazing wildlife. One day you’re going on a 3-day safari, while the other day you’re relaxing on a beautiful white-sand beach. I’ve been to the following African countries: Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda. If you have any questions about backpacking in Africa: don’t hesitate to send me an email. I’m happy to answer any travel-related Africa questions.
