If you are Covid vaccinated, if you are looking for a holiday far away from that home of your long “lockdowns”, Africa is the place for you, in this 2021. The continent is coping better than expected with the pandemics situation, and there are many strict safety rules tourists must respect, when they arrive and move throughout it. This makes sure that you can enjoy a safe trip in some of the most charming locations in the world. Besides that, African tourist destinations are cheaper if you arrive from abroad. Just to make an example: it is more expensive to fly from Kenya to South Africa rather than from London to Kenya!
So a direct trip to the best destinations in Africa is the ideal holiday for this summer. But also for the next seasons, such as autumn and winter. Africa is a great place to go even during Christmas time! Some trendy destinations are still the same, after so many years; others have just added to the list. Come discover where can you go, if you decide to book your African trip in 2021.
